How about a Tailwind-like set of utility classes that can be stacked on top of each other, without having to actually code? Either that, or, you know, use … CSS.

This. I’m not a software engineer, either. (Well, I’m not active in IndieWeb spaces, like, at all, but I have implemented and am greatly enjoying some of the typical “IndieWeb” building bricks. They’re open protocols, after all.)

I am fairly active in IndieWeb spaces and I disagree with others in these spaces all the time.

Could be they check if an item’s content starts with its title, and decide to display it as a note if so (this is how, again, popular PHP library X-Ray does it).

That, in my experience, is the trick (and perfectly valid).

Recently watched the Fear Street trilogy, Turbo Kid, and La Gomera (The Whistlers), and now I’m wondering if I should revisit, or clarify, my “rating system,” which goes up to four stars. One star would be “interesting,” two stars “entertaining,” three stars very good and four almost impossibly awesome. As for the films above, I’d probably give them one or two stars each, like so: ★★☆☆. (Should probably drop that fourth star, too, and not be such an a—hole.)

There’s no technical reason you couldn’t stay in touch with Facebook friends without being [a] Facebook user. You can switch phone companies or email providers without walking away from the family, community and customers you’re connected to.
