Google and HTTP

March 21st, 2018 by Dave Winer

I’m a big fan of moving over to HTTPS in favour of staying on HTTP. This mainly comes down to two reasons: I want to run on http2 and it requires https; and I want to use Service Workers and have an offline progressive web ap… which also requires HTTPS. I’d never thought of the […]

Minimal viable service worker

March 9th, 2018 by Jeremy Keith

Jeremy, with the help of Jake, has developed a MVP for the service worker. It allows HTML to always be requested from the server, and if there’s an issue it goes to the cache (and adds a new version to the cache each time it visits the network version). It does the same for files, […]

Why isn’t my iframe loading?

One of my favourite side projects over the years is Am I Responsive, a little tool that provides a high fidelity view of your website across four different devices (Mobile, Tablet, Laptop, Desktop).
