A failure of formats
A failure of formats I have a very long diatribe on the state of document editors that I am working on, and almost anyone that knows me has heard parts of it, as I frequently rail against all of them: MS Word, Google Docs, Dropbox Paper, etc. In the process of writing up my screed I started thinking what a proper document format would look like and realized the awfulness of all the current document formats is a much more pressing problem than the lack of good editors.
Based on a Twitter discussion about optimizing the performance of web apps, I implemented a very crude polyfill for an idea I recently had. HTML forms support multiple target values, i.e. where should the result of submitting the form be displayed, but there is no value for of target for inline, that is, you submit the form and instead of the whole page refreshing the server returns HTML that takes the place of the Form contents.
