barneycarroll / unfuckReact.js
Last active Feb 7, 2019
React components are so fucking stupid, it's unbelievable. 3 months with this library version 15 and the glaring stupidity of the API just keeps coming in waves. Fixing some of this stuff – just for the sake of internal consistency – would have been so simple. The number of hoops you're required to jump through for trivial shit. Ugh.

`:notext` is an alternative to the `:empty` selector for jQuery. Elements consisting exclusively of an amount of whitespace or HTML comments will be returned.
View jquery.notextSelector.js
/*
jQuery's ':empty' selector only returns true if the element contains no text node, or whose text node consists exclusively of zero or more spaces and tabs. This ':notext' selector will return true for elements whose text nodes can also contain line breaks (any whitespace character) and HTML comments.

Drizzle

Autumn is here again with its dismal days, and the sun is hiding himself in the darkest corner of the heavens so that no one shall see how pale and aged and worn he has grown in this latter time. But while the wind whistles in the window-chinks and the rain purls in the rainspouts and a wet dog howls in front of a closed gate down below on the street and before the fire has burned down in our tile stove, I will tell you a story about the drizzle. Listen now!

For some time back the good God had become so angered over the wickedness of men that he resolved to punish them by making them still wickeder. He should, in his great goodness, have liked above all things to have drowned them all together in a new Deluge: he had not forgotten how agreeable was the sight when all living creatures perished in the flood. But unfortunately in a sentimental moment he had promised Noah never to do so again.

"Harken, my friend I" he therefore said to the Devil one day. "You are assuredly no saint, but occasionall

Last active Aug 24, 2018
An ultra-small URI parsing function that accepts a URI-like string & returns an object with all the string properties of the native Location object for that string. Works using native property detection, without received wisdom (ie dictionaries, inference, etc).
