I am Fernando van Loenhout A Full stack developer!
Hi, I'm Fernando van Loenhout
I am a Full Stack developer, an electronic specialist and a hobbyist. I like to talk about many technical things, so be prepared to read everything I want to tell you. Blogging is a fun thing to do, and I occasionally post content here. I also do development work in my hobby time, mainly to improve my skill levels. This website was not possible to make if I was not at the skill level that I am today. If you ask any fellow programmer, they will say making the following hexagon layout is one of the hardest things to make.
One of the underused HTML elements is the <details> element. For the uses cases this tag gives you, it is not used enough on websites.
Lets explore its uses together. This tag is used to make an expanding/collapsing detail/summary view. The browser then adds interaction to the element, allowing the user to open/close the element itself. Lets take a look at a basic example:

When you start with React, it is common that you just start a project with the CRA tool. While this quickly makes a project, it also does lots of magic in the background to make it work. For learning purposes, it can be better to write your own configuration to build a react application.
Very simple setup
It is possible to use the ReactJS framework without using any transpilers. For this, make a new directory for our project and make a index.html file containing the following content:
If you read this quickly after publication, the chance is high you are on my newly build website. There are multiple techniques used on this website to archive my goals. Doing this mix with a static website vs easy to add content was quite the technical challenge, but looking at this website shows I succeeded in my goals.
Static HTML pages
Automatic compiling of markdown posts
Dark/white theme support based on the browser, with user override
In 2021, I was playing around with the online TypeScript sandbox, when I discovered a weird issue. When trying to write XML to the terminal, it instead of showing me the string representation, it was actually executing it.

When working with GitHub, you have the advantage that everything is stored in the cloud. While this is fine for most people, it can be useful to make a local backup in the case you expect to have no internet for a certain period of time, like a vacation.
This game used the module pattern to connect all the components together.
