👋 kumusta? 

 i'm a web developer, trying to live a life of learning, teaching, and building solutions in tech (especially for the Philippines!) until i find myself on a point where i actually finish my undergrad thesis (sorry for the nth time, parents 😅), or i have coded enough to ultimately retire this career. 

 because writing fiction, then movies... has always been the dream. 

 i wonder what's really a worse life though, if you're actually living your ikigai. 

 anyway, a promise: as long as no thesis is done, no app deployed, no story published, no movie made, will die trying... while contributing tech to the world for now. ✊ 

 let's open source things, shall we? 👊

Thanks for the warm welcome Peter! (how do i tag you? 😅)

Some offhand observations:
1. One technical specific comment is comments behave like inputs. Maybe it's my fault but, I can't seem to use Shift or Alt Enter when writing a reply comment, i mean like a textarea. Actually, I am writing this on my editor so I get to write my reply easier before copy pasting it. 😅

2. On app uniqueness - A bit of my background is i do dev work fulltime and teach web dev on the side, so I think I can really use this to track my progress in my tech career. Comparing to others my current thoughts are: Linkedin surely is for networking especially when applying jobs so thats that, github profile can serve as an online resume too that's closer to code contributions, but polywork seems to focus more on documenting success (I found polywork from this link: https://github.com/readme/guides/document-success, shared by our CTO in our slack.). Closer to a personal blog, but more of a timeline i guess, like a social network maybe, but for doing career work! 

I kinda want to create my long overdue personal blog but i never get around to it so far, and actually a blog is really for detailed posts, so for now, for mini updates just like the PR that i just did, polywork gave me the ease to just start it!

Polywork seems to strike at a unique intersection, crossing between blogging, networking, documenting. So kudos to the idea. Excited to explore more on this!

PS. yep, paragraphs become just one line when i try to comment this one so i guess, i try rehighlighting and posting this as a post.

I tried creating a PR for a nextjs example when using clevertap-web-sdk.
This is because the current module is designed to be used on client-side, which causes issues on next components server-side.

Our solution (seems a bit hacky but) is to asyncly import the module on demand. 

I simplified the example enough, without the use of any context management. Hopefully they merged it! 😅

I might create another project but with added context or other state manager integration, cause I haven't tried creating a react-component module yet! Soon!

After some years of doing dev work, one thing we always say again and again is that documentation goes a long way. It does not only improve the developer experience, but it also affects the culture of the whole tech team in terms of setting standards, fast knowledge sharing when a new team member onboards and the list goes on...

For a developer perspective, at least for me, tools are actually like our toys, as they give us some room to imagine and create things outside of the work domain. 

That said, I'm kinda proud to share some little thing I made:


This is a module that generates your readme of your repo plus badges!

In the future, I want to experiment more about:

1.  How to create a terminal prompt the way gitmoji-cli does it for example.
2. How to make husky built-in too.
... and of course PRs, suggestions are welcome. 

It was my exploration about how to create a small library and my goal has always been to create something that's really useful. 

It was my first time too, i mean officially and concretely, in contributing to open source. 

That's all for now!
