Daily Log – 4th Dec 2019

Extremely frustrating day. Worked on a custom theme for a new website we will be launching at work that integrates with a payment system in Kenya. Got the entire user journey working on my local Vagrant environment, which I made mirror the Dev server that I would be deploying to, but guess what? As soon as I deployed to Dev server it *$@$#£* broke!

In my own time I am building an Ionic app for myself to play around with React and Ionic framework. Will be updating you guys on it soon.

In other news, it rained cats and dogs yesterday evening, I ended up getting home at about 11 pm. Am just exhausted at this point.

Relatively relaxing day, got my layout done and my JavaScript for the account page done, tested it out with a bunch of browsers on BrowserStack and no unexpected surprises. Then did a whole bunch of refactoring and tested one again.

Decided to take a break from the magazine work, was just feeling too tired.

Ohhhh Opera Mini how I loath you, after spending the whole day tweaking CSS and JS to work on you, you decide to throw me another curve ball… This is getting very frustrating. I would have finished the account page yesterday but just as I got ready to push the code I decided to do a final test on my colleague’s phone only to see the layout break while displaying SVGs.

Worked on the corporate website a little. Generally just frustrated today.

Configured webpack for the website, I don’t know why it wasn’t the first thing that I did. I should be done with the account page tomorrow.

Continued proof reading the magazine in the evening and found loads of errors, especially in the Punjabi version of the articles.

Had a really hard time with Opera Mini, it doesn’t support CSS Grid and it’s implementation for flex box is kinda weird as well.

Did some more magazine designing at night.

It was my mother and father-in-laws anniversary. We had a short Kirtan session at home, followed by cake and chai.

Opened up InDesign after years to do some editing of the Sikh Sansaar magazine, I had completely forgotten half of my keyboard shortcuts. Also forgot how relaxing it is to design a magazine layout, specially since everything can be done visually without any coding.

Almost not looking forward to the week forward.
