SoaPatrick

9 comes before 10

I don’t know how many hours I’ve invested in the last two weeks for this new theme iteration but I really like what I see now. Gone are few things and I streamlined a lot of code in the back and I think the performance got even better. But let’s get into some details. Back … more →

It’s close, very close

It’s been one hell of a busy week but I made so much progress with SoaPatrickNine that I think it’s ready to be released very soon. It’s been a blast to start from scratch and actually reduce code and optimize the theme once again. It will be different but at the same time it’s similar, … more →

SP9 is in development

Yes, I’ve started work on SoaPatrickNine and I’ve come quite far with my first coding session. Now I don’t use an app like Photoshop or something like Adobe XD, Figma, or Sketch. I use my coding editor and do something which is called ‘design by coding’. So far I’ve written very hacky code but it’s … more →

My plans for SP9

Yesterday I published the new section SoapLab and with it, I thought a lot about a new structure. Actually, I thought about it for some time but with this new section, the idea to rearrange some things became more imminent. So I played around with it locally and I realized that it was important to … more →

A place for my smaller work

The page is updated so sparely that it seems that I’m not doing anything, which isn’t quite true. I do a lot then there’s a personal issue which I might go into further details another day. But this post is about the creative work I do on a regular basis. Usually, every creative project gets … more →

Welcome to October

Yeah, it does look kinda different today, I know. It was one of those Sundays where I just kept working on something until I was done with it. What you see now is actually something I was planing from the beginning but in order for it to work, other things needed to be done first. … more →

A new start with Eight

I know it looks kinda the same, and it pretty much is, but this is just the start of something that will hopefully end up being something new and different. But for right now, I like the new look, I like the simplicity of it and I like the fact that the performance of the … more →

Where was I?

Ah yes… writing a lot more to overcome this hole I’m finding myself in. Well, I have some good news actually. I plan on releasing SoaPatrickEight sometime this weekend. Now, this won’t look like the screenshot from the last post, but more similar to SoaPatrickSeven, it’s actually the same base with some changes. But like … more →

It’s been a different year…

I think we can all agree that the year 2020 (and maybe even part of 2021) will be remembered as a very different year, one that might change how we as a society function, but it’s also a very different year for each one of us personally. At the beginning of the corona outbreak, I … more →

Working hard on Eight

It seems quite I know, but I was working hard the last two days on version Eight. In fact, I’m hoping that I can release the first version this week. This first version won’t be perfect as I best improve once my themes are published. It’s much easier this way to create tasks for specific … more →

It’s time for Eight

I’m slowly crunching out of my game-cave and while doing that I realized that I need a new project. I haven’t done much else besides gaming since the beginning of July and in order for that to change significantly, I need something new to focus on. So I thought a few days about this and … more →

Grissu cleaning herself

A lot has happened in April

I thought it would be nice to make a recap once again (mentioned this in yesterday’s blog post, this was written mainly before that one), the last one I did was in December 2018 I think. But since I did so much in the last month I thought I’d go through it again, you know, … more →

Two versions in one day?

Well, that’s unusual but I thought what the hell. But let me explain. Like I mentioned on Wednesdays post today I released SP 2.5 with some changes under the hood (all that can be found at the log btw): Removed all Gutenberg color options Changed Youtube play buttons styling Changed image sizes for generated images Changed CSS grid for … more →

Got some new pipeline minutes

A new month and it all starts back at zero. So I used my Sunday with working on version 2.3.0. The biggest new addition to the theme or the page, in general, is a Data Protection page where I go into some detail about what is happening with your data on this website. The short … more →

Some additional features

In the last few days, I did add some additional features on Seven before I used up all my Bitbucket Deployment minutes. I’ve released version 2.1.0 and 2.2.0 and a few things that changed I’d like to mention here. Related Blog Posts I’ve played around with this idea for some time and because I worked … more →

It’s Alive

14 days after deciding to start a new theme and almost 10 months since the last release I’m done with an initial releasable version. I know on the front it doesn’t look like anything changed, but below the hood, I did a lot of improvements. The new Stylesheet is now 4kb smaller, but not only … more →

Seven is almost here

I had a busy coding weekend where I recreated the current theme but used everything I’ve learned in the last 12 months. There was a lot of code I could rewrite more efficiently or code which was not needed at all anymore but was just laying around. I would have released it this weekend already, … more →

Work has been started on Seven

I took a long walk today through Basel and actually continuing with my New Years’ resolution from 2019. And during that walk, I thought of all the things I want to improve upon with the new version and when I arrived at home, I created a new repository, cloned my starter theme and made my … more →

I’m torn between coding and filming

for a year now I’m working full time and I notice that time in between work and sleeping is tight and in that free time I’d like to work on things that I love. There is the passion for making movies. Now you might say that For something that is your passion you don’t seem … more →

Cleaning House

I did some house cleaning for the last 2 days. Moving some subfolders I had on my server to their own place in a subdomain and cleaning up old Databases. The main domain is much cleaner now, there’s only this place here and nothing else, might also change some site speed issues? Since apparently there’s … more →
