  1. Hi guys,
    stumbled over this tool to see your breakpoints in a much more neat way (compared to the default browser development tools)

    It is opensource and can find it here: (i am in no way affiliated)
    just want to share it.

    Four ways to see it in action, goto this url: https://open-source.jagullo.fr/rwdkit/

    1) resize your browser window
    2) click on the devices icon on the bottom right
    3) drag the blue bar on the right side
    4) use the arrow buttons on the bottom

    How to use it:
    Import library plugin: (remove the scripts on production server)
    <script src="jquery.js"></script>
    <script src="jquery.rwdkit.js"></script>
    Initialize the plugin to generate the breakpoint detector in a specific container or the whole document.

    Happy developing

    It will be a paid course, I have not yet decided what the price will be, but it will be affordable for everyone

    Good Idea but if it is going to be paid then please only exclusive content, just for example applied api usage
    starting from a certain level such as building forms or applied arrays ... etc. etc. and going up level ...
    please not how to install processwire, output strategies, css frameworks and more of the same that is already
    out there all over the place and chewed over

  3. I will be glad if I am wrong and you guys are right that Docker Desktop is free for commercial use.

    I was reading from here:

    Docker Desktop may be used for free as part of a Docker Personal subscription for:
    -Personal use
    -Education and learning (as a student or instructor, either in an academic or professional environment)
    -Non-commercial open source projects

    So that means a Docker Personal subscription is needed, right ?

    -Personal use I understood as not commercial use but I must be wrong about that.

    I had problems with laragon and the support is not great.

    So how is that ? They have lots of docs, articles and vids which you don't even need because it works out of the box
    and the interface is self explaining. With version 5.x they did a great job to make it work with php8.x
    Frameworks, Addons, libs, third party tools and features are conveniently bundled in one directory (c:/laragon/bin)
    e.g. easy switch between php5.x 7.x and 8.x for both old and new projects.

    By the way ... did someone mention that Docker Desktop is no longer free like it obvious was before ?
    I don't mean if you are running a company with 250+ employees

    If you develop closed source or proprietary software with Docker Desktop it requires a paid subscription for professional use.
    Selling Websites or Apps developed With Docker Desktop is commercial use and needs a Docker Pro license.

    The Docker engine is free without any hassle so linux might be the better choice of something like Lazydocker ?

    Also the config of the project can be added to the project's git repo. That means everybody can just do a git pull && ddev start and will have a working version of the project with all the settings and tools needed for it to run. You can't do that with laragon.

    Thanks for posting. Yes I figured it has to do with this flexibility. Virtualbox and even Vmware are poor (bloated) virtual environments when it comes to dev. I tried Vagrant in the past but didn't like it. I already have linux on a second partition so I will try ddev or something like devilbox.

  6. Is DDEV "supposed to be" used on mac or linux ? On windows you need either wsl2 or the docker desktop. On windows, can anyone tell me why Laragon is not by far easier to use than DDEV when it comes to switching between php versions ? Is it about working in virtual environments ? With virtualbox it can just as well be extended, version controlled, and shared.

  7. I have been working with Drupal for a while just to find out if building a website "The Administrative Way" would speed up building websites
    compared to building websites "The Technical Way" with html, css, js and php.

    The thing with Drupal is that you have to work the Drupal system way with it's content types, articles, fields, blocks, entities, nodes and modules.
    With this you can make Drupal Websites without having to write code. Drupal is targeting non coders and with Drupal 9 it has improved
    on it's user-friendly interface for non-technical administrators.

    Drupal 7 was the most loved Drupal version and many Drupal users are against how Drupal 7 evolved into version 8 and now version 9.
    Drupal 8 was less accepted because of worse code readability, incompatible modules, spaghetti of files, far from logical, etc.

    What the community now hates to see ist that the Drupal that they have grown to love over the years,
    with Drupal 9 it is actually being steered towards "Enterprise".

    This is the reason that a group of Drupal coders have branched off from Drupal with the Backdrop cms, a Drupal fork.

    But is the replacement (CKEditor 5) the best path forward?

    Let's not forget that CKEditor has many (returning) forum posts/questions about it's behavior and associated hard to find configurations 

    Keep in mind that something like CKEditor5 will be just too much for many clients/end users/office workers/
    who are in need for a more easy and intuitive to use editor:

  9. I simply resize the website from wide screen to mobile screen .... and then observe at what screen size ... it looks both practically and visually good ... to change from default menu to hamburger menu. This is not so easy done with a fixed set of breakpoints in e.g. bootstrap. But this is very easy done with e.g. something like pocketgrid css where you are totally free to set any breakpoint at any screen size where you want a change to happen in the look and feel of the website.
