just snuggled up under the covers, cuddling some plushies, and casually reading the FontForge manual before bed
as one does
Typography on the web problem:
I have a font that consistently needs to be scaled by a factor of 1.25 to match most other fonts at the same size. I’m leery about having to scale up the body font, and then scale back down inlined bits in case a visitor replaces the fonts I choose.
I would use font-size-adjust instead of explicit sizing, but it doesn’t have good support.
My other thought is I’d have to manually edit the font to adjust the sizing, but I don’t know how easy that would be. :/
still better than Adobe Illustrator tho tbh
Also, while I have the attention of my fellow regex nerds:
Please use the 'x' flag or (?x) on complicated expressions where possible to enable extended regex so you can comment them for those who:
1. want to learn from your work; and
2. need to maintain them in the future.
Thank you! 💜
Just gonna drop this wonderfully succinct regex that took me a couple of days to suss out. I've been working on a language definition for Elm, which is indentation sensitive, so I needed something to check for the end of a top-level block.
At the end of every line, it skips all the empty lines and checks if the next populated line doesn't start with a space. It does all this without consuming any characters, and also shorts out pretty quick because the end-of-line is checked first!
