Ingress-Nginx: Custom error pages that won't burn (chrome users') eyes out

It's really easy to add custom error messages to the Nginx Ingress Controller. Thanks to a neat little meta tag, it is also possible to respect OS color scheme settings without touching any styles at all. In this post I want to show you how to quickly accomplish both.

This blog finally has an RSS feed (and other updates)

I finally got around to adding an RSS feed to my blog -something I had been procrastinating for over a year which ended up taking nearly no time at all to do. To "celebrate" this, I decided to write a little post, explaining what I've been up to in the last few time units.

Choosing a work laptop in 2021

Posted: 2021-03-27 17:51:32 |

I recently started my first job where I didn't get a hand-me-down work machine that more "valuable" employees had stopped using because it had gotten too slow, and instead was allowed to freely choose my own computer, within a generous budget. This proved to be a bit harder than I had anticipated but I ended up finding a machine that I really like.

Emoji domains - A cautionary tale

Posted: 2021-01-19 16:45:48 |
Last update: 2021-03-19 22:03:28

Since I was unemployed earlier this year, I had time to polish up my portfolio and build some smaller new projects to hopefully help me in finding a good job. One such small project was not quite thought through before I started. I decided that since emoji are "allowed" in URLs and emoji 13 added a transgender pride flag, I wanted a website with that emoji in its url. It did not go quite as planned..

On the first day of rC3 I held a talk on how to get started with accessible web development. In this post I want to talk a bit more about it, link some "further reading" and publish my slides.

Accessibility is not a one-off project

Posted: 2020-10-04 13:59:15 |
Last update: 2020-10-04 13:59:15

When discussing weather or not to spend time and effort into making products accessible, it's common for management to say that accessibility is not the priority right now and that it's going to be patched in at a later time. However, I believe that even a minimum viable product has to be accessible and that anything that isn't is not viable. -Especially considering that this later time at which accessibility is patched in likely will never come because other things have a higher priority. In this post I want to show my view on how to develop software that can be used by as many people as possible.

Icon fonts must die.

Last update: 2020-10-03 23:15:11

Other people have written about this as well, but I thought I might show my perspective on why icon fonts shouldn't have been used 5 years ago and certainly should not be used today.

How to try out the fediverse and actually keep using it

Last update: 2020-02-11 19:08:02

Every couple of weeks there's a huge wave of sign ups on the fediverse, caused by twitter being.. how to put this nicely? ...twitter. Sadly most people don't actually stay on fedi because it is, in fact, not twitter. In this post I'm trying to share my perspective as someone who abandoned twitter for good and try to give a few hints on how to actually stay.

Behind this blogs simplistic design

I know, this blog is nothing special, design wise (otherwise as well but that might change) but I wanted to write a short post talking about why I designed it this way. The "idea" for this came to me when I randomly came across someone else's blog that looked pretty much exactly the same.

This year I was finally able to attend the chaos communication congress for the first time in my life. While there, I wrote a blogging software - the one you're looking at right now. Because a blog without any posts looks.. let's say not too great, here's a little "diary" of my experiences at 36c3.
