Lock and unlock a page's scroll position.


Useful for when a blocking user experience is needed (in my case, didn't want people unwittingly loosing their place by scrolling while a modal required their attention): $.scrollLock() locks the body in place, preventing scroll until it is unlocked.

// Locks the page if it's currently unlocked

// ...or vice versa

import {m} from './deps.js'
import viewOf from './viewOf.js'
// View component exposing a single function:
// Once invoked, the function causes the subtree to be reinitialised

A ternary function for convenient conditional expressions (especially in Mithril views, where ternary operators can look confusing).
View tern.es5.js
// Verbose ternary function to add debugging points and make views more legible.
// If `defer` is true and the pass/fail outcome is a function, it will be invoked:
// This allows you to conditionally return expressions which would break execution depending on `condition`
function tern( condition, pass, fail, defer ){
if( !fail ) fail = ''
if( defer && condition instanceof Function ) condition = condition()
var outcome = condition ? pass : fail;

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.

Total input[type=file] style control with pure CSS. File type inputs are notoriously hard to style, due to different semi-serious style restrictions in the name of security (the argument being that a file input presents access to the user's private file system, and should as such always look unambiguously like what it is — redundant if you ask m…

Last active Oct 12, 2018
`: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.
$.expr[':'].notext = function detectNoText(x){
return x.innerHTML && x.innerHTML.replace(/(<!--.*(?!-->))|\s+/g, '').length === 0

Drizzle, a short story by Hjalmar Söderberg


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
