Over at College Confidential we recently hired Student
we perused the resumes, we noticed many candidates have computer
science backgrounds. So I interviewed a few more people and we hired
two more Student Ambassadors who will be focused on helping us improve
our user interface. Now I'm like the teacher who is thrust into a
new-for-them class and has to learn each lesson a week before teaching
it. So let's jump into the world of Discourse theme development.
This is a companion discussion topic for the original entry at https://jlericson.com/2022/10/24/discourse_theme-1.html
I always enjoy/appreciate these “step-by-step” posts you do! Just a thought on fn. 6: " your favorite IDE" which recommends Visual Studio Code.
I’m no coder, but I do some things that are easier in an IDE. I also enjoy kicking tyres. VS Code is pretty great (unless, I take it, one is working on gargantuan files, in which case there are better options). But I do prefer VS Codium, which is “a community-driven, freely-licensed binary distribution of Microsoft’s editor VS Code”, but with telemetry/tracking disabled, also MIT licensed. A good option to be aware of, IMO!
Ooooh! It also has a cask for Homebrew. Gonna try that out.
