I’ve been playing around with Svelte and SvelteKit recently. So far, I’m a fan but one thing that bothers me is how styles are managed. See, way back in the day when I wanted to build a website, I would create the style of that website in a single file called a Cascading Style Sheet […]
When ever I run into an issue during GNU/Linux server administration, 9 times out of 10, it’s due to permissions.
