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
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.
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.
Spent most of the day driving from one place to another and watching movies while was at home. I had absolutely no motivation to do any work.
