New blog post, cause a few folks were seemingly interested in it: ‘Building a microblog using Svelte, PlanetScale and Prisma’ –

DO NOT use `display: contents` on `<summary>`.

This is *bad* advice. It also shows nobody tried this with a keyboard.

I have been writing about this for half a decade now, fighting with browser evangelists at Can I Use, doing talks, and still… nobody tests.

Hey, have you checked out this year’s advent calendar yet? You should!

If you're writing HTML, I recommend reading this great writeup on "24 Semantic Terms Web Pros Should Know".

As someone who was Team SvelteKit before it was even a thing (I used Sapper, y'all), I have been very excited about SvelteKit and watching its progress.
