Super busy today but styled the settings modal for day 3/10 of #10-days-in-public!Day 2/10 of #10-days-in-public! I'm mostly done with the blog and blog post page, and starting work on a little settings modal.Day 1 of #10-days-in-public, again! I'me trying to finish the design of a website I've been procrastinating on. Today, I mostly gauged my progress and started working on the design for the blog. It's kind of hard to record in action haha so what I do today is going to be recorded tomorrow and so on.Finally got around to updating the README for the Markdown parser I wrote during #10-days-in-public! You can check it out at github.com/jianmin-chen/markdown-parser/blob/main/README.md
Installed my first Vim plugin, vim-gitgutter! Did it through SSH (I don't normally use Windows, but I'm on a school computer).
Wrote a little Python script to change the background on my computer every so often. Probably could have found something, but this is more fun :)Got my fudge for #10-days-in-public too! The chocolate one is so good
Last day of #10-days-in-public! Unfortunately, I didn't get to attend the Zoom meet, but I just wanted to add my own two cents and say that it was a lot of fun building and sharing the progress of a project in 10 days. Today, I simply finished my write-up, rewrote some of my CSS (adding media queries), and updated the README of my repo. And of course, an obligatory demo of me using the Markdown parser to finish the rest of my write-up:
> What's this? A Markdown parser written from scratch. Demo at jianmin-chen.github.io/markdown-parser, write-up at www.jianminchen.com/article/general/2022-10-07-markdown-parserDay 9/10 of #10-days-in-public! I can't believe that there's one more day. Today, I worked on adding strikethrough, superscript, and subscript features, and started working on a contextmenu, which currently allows me to delete files. I plan on adding more to the contextmenu, and definitely finishing the write-up and adding a README to the GitHub repo. (Currently, I also have some incomplete TypeScript files.)

Demo at jianmin-chen.github.io/markdown-parser and write-up at www.jianminchen.com/article/general/2022-10-07-markdown-parserDay 8/10 for #10-days-in-public! Today, I worked on adding link and image functionality, learning about regular expressions along the way. Everything's coming together, which is super cool!
Day 6/10 for #10-days-in-public! Today, I added bullet list and number list functionality. I also got a ~little~ bit sidetracked and transformed the parser into a complete Markdown editor, with the ability to add and save files (currently through localStorage, I'm thinking of creating an Express & AWS API after the ten day challenge so that this can be a functional mini Markdown editor, especially since I'm planning to do the Quality Assurance course on freeCodeCamp at www.freecodecamp.org/learn/quality-assurance. We'll see.
(Trying again.) Day 2 of #10-days-in-public! I got blockquotes, inline code, italics, and horizontal breaks working. I'm thinking of working on code blocks next, and getting a GitHub repo and blog post up and running.Day 1/10 for #10-days-in-public! (I might do a day 1.5, we'll see.) I currently have headers working in my Markdown parser, which is pretty neat!
Updated my VSCode theme and installed some extensions! I'm trying to learn Vim, so I found an extension for that, which is pretty nice
Got my DALLE invite! Here's Orpheus "Dinomite":
I rewrote my blog using Next.js, MongoDB, and Sass with Chakra UI! Located at jianminchen.com. Also, the video is super neat, it was done entirely on my phone!I won $50 in Replit's Template Jam with this small canvas template: replit.com/@jianmin-chen/canvas-sketch-template! I'm probably going to use the funds to get the supplies needed to salvage my old, broken laptop from 2013 and turn it's LCD screen into a monitor :sunglassesblob:
