nodejs child processes

from: prisma/prisma#2917

The reason Prisma is cleaning up its child processes, is we'll end up with a dangling child process. So unfortunately Node.js does not make sure, that the child process is killed properly. That's why Prisma Client is cleaning this up, for now, to not introduce a foot gun for Prisma users.

AWS Lambda@Edge for rewriting request URI - reverse proxy for static sites and apps hosted with S3 + CloudFront CDN
'use strict'
* Minimal implementation of an AWS 'Lambda@Edge' solution for rewriting a request URI.
* This Edge Lambda can support static sites + front-end apps hosted on AWS via S3 + CloudFront CDN,
* including those built by popular frameworks such as NextJS (e.g. via NextJS' `next export` static HTML export feature).
* An Edge Lambda provides control and can help meet real-world requirements that arise in the development of non-trivial

tailwind config starter - comments detail reminders + common project options w/ urls to relevant tailwind docs
// this gist is meant to serve as a reminder for common tailwindcss configuration options.
// it features comments that are applicable to a range of projects from react to wordpress themes
// the palette and specific settings are for example purposes -- this file is not meant to be production-ready :)
// importing the default theme is useful for referencing it and building on it
const defaultTheme = require('tailwindcss/defaultTheme')
// the `plugin()` function is useful for a variety of purposes @see
// for example, new styles can be added to one of tailwind's layers with project-specific class names

Restrict access to files in the WordPress uploads folder so they can only be accessed by logged-in users
# The following Apache .htaccess snippet should be included at the top of the .htaccess file in WordPress' root directory.
# Use this option only if you wish to manually modify the .htaccess file. To fully contain file restriction functionality
# inside a plugin you can use the mod_rewrite_rules filter as demonstrated in a commented-out block in plugin-snippet.php
# Note <IfModule mod_rewrite.c></IfModule> test is intentionally omitted to trigger an error if mod_rewrite is not available.
# BEGIN RestrictFileExample
# it is ok if WordPress also calls these two directives later on in the file
