websites are bad, you say? you don’t like opening the browser for every little thing, you say? well good on you, because we’ve just released a desktop version of our app — which is just the website plus two more levels of sandboxing, plus we get to mine your telemetry 🤡

Grumbling about contract work 

@garbados to my undying annoyance, the next part of this contract is probably going to be taking a website that we made and making it an app.
An app that displays exactly what is on the website and uses exactly the same back-end.

If the client had listened a month ago we would have just made a native app that worked better, but somehow the client thought that doing it in two steps would be cheaper.

@garbados plus a bunch of (browser-provided) keyboard shortcuts no longer work 🤡
