Self-hosting VSCode by muesli (fribbledom.com)
As so many others, I’ve switched to VSCode as my go-to IDE in recent years.

Really curious what else will show up on this topic over the next weeks.

Publish Text, Image, and Gallery Snippets With the Shortnotes WordPress Plugin (WordPress Tavern)
Yesterday, Happy Prime owner and engineer Jeremy Felt released Shortnotes, a plugin for writing notes from the WordPress editor. The intention is for users to create short pieces of content, such a…
