Thanks for hosting these weekly learning threads Nick!!!
pushd- use for remembering more than one directory. use in place of
popd- reverse back through the saved directories
dirs- list of directories

That's awesome! 🔥
I learned Gridsome/JAMstack this week and I set everything up with a Headless CMS, which is a first for me. Cool stuff!

I've looked into Codecov.io and it's worked great, took minutes to setup and have it working, and I highly recommend it.
I've also looked into Coveralls.io, unfortunately it isn't working that well right now, setup was easy, just like Codecov, and I'm working with the Coveralls community through a GitHub issue to resolve.

I learnt about Vue 3, to be more specific:
