Metatags.io, a very nice tool to test your metatags. Bravo, makers.
Since major overhauls to a web site are relatively infrequent and set the stage for years to come, they are rare and vital opportunities to step back to basics. What should the site be? What should it express? Who is it for and what should it do for them?
MindBody is a web-based management system widely used by yoga studios. Using MindBody’s SOAP-based API, eeMindBody provides an easy way for a studio’s ExpressionEngine web site to access its MindBody data.
It falls to Andrew Cunningham to take up the magisterial task of the Ars Technica review of macOS Big Sur.
3D model of Fallingwater by sighty for sale, including a portion of Bear Run, which interestingly gets cuts off even before the bridge that obviously crosses it, making this a model not of the house but of a model of it.
Boy, there are other models too. Here’s an interactive Fallingwater by archimore. It has the interior, even the raised rocks around the fireplace! (Though missing the grand swinging water heater.) The non-Wright dining-table chairs that Mrs Kaufman brought. The portrait of Edgar on the wall! Yet no walkway up to the Guesthouse, and no Guesthouse.
And another Fallingwater by Myles Zhang which does have the Gueshouse and ramp, even the steps into the swimming pool. And a very long stretch of Bear Run. It does have the round red water holer, but no furniture.
Would be good to merge these magnificent efforts to make a more detailed, canonical model.

CEO Chris Best talks Substack with Eric Johnson of Recode. Email as a reading medium, I’m not drawn to it, but maybe because I still live with spam.
Amusing comments at Marginal Revolution on Matthew Yglesias’s migration to Substack.
Head of Learning and Developer Advocate at NuxtJS Debbie O’Brien writes up their dogfooding experience using Nuxt to make the Nuxt web site.

If the dataset is large it can be posted using a batch import.
he content may be created, the system architected, installed and configured, but we’re still missing a rather important ingredient: having the content within the system. This data can either be posted manually using the system’s control panel, or, if the dataset is large, by means of a batch import.
Engaging.net has much experience performing batch imports into ExpressionEngine. In fact we’re often hired for this step only, such as bringing in thousands of blog entries when converting from a previous content management system.
Among the issues to work out here can be how to maintain the integrity of old URLs.
