Yet Another Newsletter LOL: Broccoli

It's getting close to the end of the year, and I don't know about all of you, but for me, around this time of year, my body starts telling me it's time for a break. I'm definitely looking forward to time off at Christmas.

With that, another week, another newsletter. Let's get to it!

Around the Web

  • It's been a busy year in CSS! Una Kravitz, Adam Argyle, and Bramus Van Damme, put together a great wrap up of all the CSS goodness that landed in 2023. Check out CSS Wrapped: 2023!
  • I never used Tailwind before working at OpenSauced. I have some takes on it, but I think it's pretty solid. This week I came across a Tailwind plugin for animations. This looks like it could be potentially handy if you're using Tailwind.
  • Astro 4.0 landed this week! There's a new dev toolbar, faster builds, i18n routing and a tonne more. Definitely check it out!
  • I migrated our app codebase from Jest to vitest this week and coincidentally, they also released vitest 1.0. Jest is great, but I used vitest on some projects while at Netlify, and it's faster, has TypeScript and ECMAScript module (ESM) support out of the box. Go install that 1.0!

Fun Stuff

This video from FiniteSingularity cracked me up.

FiniteSingularity talking, but their head is replaced by a piece of broccoli

If you use OBS for streaming, you might want to have some fun doing this tutorial to become broccoli, lol.

Shameless Plugs

This past Monday, I got to hang with Kaelig Deloumeau-Prigent and Drew Powers on We discussed design tokens and tools for them.

On Friday, I did something a little different, a French live stream! I hung out with Thomas Bonnet (@thomasbnt), a web developer from France. I've known Thomas for a while from my days, but this was the first time we had a long chat about open source, web dev, hobbies, all the things!

Tomorrow, I'm looking forward to hanging with Ray Deck, who will dive into AI and low code tools! Don't miss this one! promo for guest Ray Deck

If you're looking for another friendly nook of the internet, head to and join our community!

That's a wrap! Until the next one.
