Cross-references for Obsidian

Last week, I linked to Alexander Obenauer’s lab notes. Since I posted that link, he created an early version Obsidian plugin that provides cross-reference navigation that looks super useful.

Estrella: Fast-building JS projects

I remember when JS was just script tags in web pages. Then we added minification. Then things went off the rails with ever-enlarging JS payloads and more complex builds. It’s nice to see a recent focus on tooling for faster builds for developers and faster end results for users. Estrella is set up to take advantage of esbuild and rebuild your project quickly, even to the point of skipping TypeScript checking when you’re looking to iterate quickly on something.
