John speaking with Baddy, Nic and John during Talking Drupal #458 - Drupal and Next.js

I just spoke with the good folks at the Talking Drupal podcast to discuss my recent work on the Next Drupal project. Next Drupal is both a collection of Drupal modules to aid content editors with decoupled websites and a JavaScript tool to integrate Next.js with Drupal’s JSON:API or GraphQL capabilities.

We’re currently doing a major upgrade to version 2 of the JavaScript tool to work with the newest features of Next.js. And we need more contributors!

😢 Today was one of the most challenging days of my life…

My day started off with two panic attacks, one of which my mind very conveniently scheduled for the waiting area of my therapist’s office. 😂 But I want to quickly assure you that I’m feeling much better now.

I’ve been slowly recognizing a past trauma and the panic was triggered when I realized that I only partially understand that trauma’s effects. I’ve still got work to do.

Tailwindcss > Bootstrap

At Drupalcon North America, I gave a presentation talking about my experience with the hot new CSS utility class system, Tailwind. I definitely learned a lot while working with it, the good, the bad, the ugly.

TLDR; Tailwind is better than Bootstrap.

The slides and video of the presentation are available in the presentations section of my website.
