Bookmarked: Web platform's hidden gems (series)


The web has certainly grown a lot over the last half a decade and continues to grow at an enormous pace. The highlight of this explosive growth is the continuous addition of feature-rich APIs that enables developers to create much more interactive and efficient web applications. Enhancements such as GPU accelerated graphics/computation, lower-level APIs that provide better control and hardware access not only allow developers to cater to a wider spectrum of users but also to support various other platforms and use cases. This makes the web portable and extensible in the true sense. Even though these specifications are in very early stages at the moment, they seem to be really promising and tend to provide an idea on how web development in the coming years would look like. Looking beyond the JavaScript framework landscape, there are a lot of nifty features that the web platform offers natively and it's important for developers to know about these specifications and understand the possibilities that the native web has to offer!

I'm including a field in my h-recipe objects called inspired_by so that I can copy #recipes to my site, while still providing original authoring information. Then once it's on my site, I'll add my own notes or changes. Recipes are all about making them your own and using what you have and like. I like the idea of someone posting a recipe and then someone else copying and remixing it.


Happy Thanksgiving to everybody! I've been looking up #recipes to use up leftovers, so now I'm working on adding h-recipe support to my #MicroPub implementation. Hopefully, I'll have it done by the end of the weekend.

As a side note, the way I'm going to display the recipes will put any notes or description I have at the end, because that's how recipes should be shown! The notes will mostly be my comments after having made the recipe and thoughts on how I might change it when making it in the future. If you find that valuable, it'll be there for you, but the recipe is the main content.
