Yea that looks like a cool site! I hope it catches on, but we also have IndieNews and Indieweb.xyz and those have never really had huge usage.

I wonder if we just don't have a large enough community, yet, to sustain a forum like this. Or maybe showing the replies inline, like IndieForum, is what the other two were missing. That does make it much easier to follow a conversation.

This makes me think about the die-hards who are against the Web as an application platform. They always say the Web was intended as a document platform and therefore shouldn't be used for applications. But Fielding modeled the REST architecture on the Web, and he and others working on the initial tech considered it to be a large, distributed application. So by that line of thinking, the Web as an application platform is nothing new. These separate web apps are just sub-features of the World Wide Web application.

I really like the look of your site in dark mode. The code blocks are my favorite part. Nice job!

What's this declaration do?

:root {
    color-scheme: light dark;
}

Searching for color-scheme on MDN just points me to the @prefers-color-scheme declaration. Is it manually specifying the default color scheme that should be applied if the user doesn't have a preference set?

Great read! I like the idea at the end of providing different experiences based on the client. I might give that a try on my own site.

I've seen vendor Accept headers before, but never seen any detail on the format. Is the application/vnd.*+json just a convention or is it standardized somewhere?

This is really disappointing. One of the main benefits of PWAs was how they could replace the need for native apps in some situations. I thought this was the start of getting rid of Electron apps. I don't understand how Mozilla makes these decisions. 😢😠

They're also so happy when Fortnite rips off another game (which is always a game made by a much smaller team). It pivoted to battle royale when PUBG was getting big, now it's ripping off Among Us and they celebrate its innovation. Epic is using the Facebook strategy for a gaming platform and games pundits are loving it.
