Using Foundation for Emails in Windows Subsystem for Linux with NVM
November 18th: 86 Hope, Burl, Ghost Tropic, Reels
Foundation for Emails was a revelation when it first came out. It uses NPM to help you build responsive emails that look mostly the same in various email clients. It inlines and compresses your HTML so you can pop it into Listrak and be done.
I use it at work all the time, but getting it to
npm install is getting harder and harder. Zurb hasn't maintained it in a long time, which is a disappointment to many.
I recently spent some time troubleshooting this on a Windows machine with Ubuntu installed via WSL, and I'd like to share how I got it working.
The St. Augustine Music Project
We're throwing a benefit show next Saturday for our friend Tess, who was hit by a car riding her bike home from work. These are some of the best bands in town, so you definitely don't want to miss out! At Planet Sarbez (115 Anastasia Blvd).

Firefox Focus: Taking Back the Mobile Web
I'm very excited to announce that I've launched a new website: The St. Augustine Music Project. I've wanted to create something for this city's wonderful music scene for quite some time, and all it took was a particularly storm Sunday to finally push me to it.
Using Bootstrap 4's Reboot with Custom Variables
I want to tell you a little bit about an app that has renewed my interest in using a smartphone as a web browsing device. Firefox Focus eliminates ads, tracking scripts, and the concept of browsing history.
Using Hugo with Netlify
I don't know if you've been keeping up with Bootstrap lately, but their version 4.0 release is coming along quite nicely. I'm a particular fan of its Reboot settings, which build upon Normalize.css to give some opinionated defaults. You can read about some of the plusses here, but that article skips over my favorite feature - modern system native fonts.
Welcome to the newest version of my blog, now using Hugo to generate its pages. Go seems like an interesting language, and I really enjoy picking apart the architecture of SSGs, so this seemed like a nice project to dive into.
