Clear EVM Wallet

I made this wallet in the course of two weeks based on Ethers, Ionic and Vue. Right now, it is built solely as a chrome extension wallet, but I used Ionic in case I will make later from the same code base a mobile/desktop variant.

It implements Metamask API and should work with most websites. I used my main address to do a few transactions on Polygon, Optimism, and Gnosis.

It has a nice set of refreshing features, like wiping all data, controlling all security settings, and importing or exporting a JSON with accounts.

It will work only with private keys and doesn’t accept seeds like other wallets. View full article

Deno Deploy Thoughts

This is some old draft article that I didn’t want to trash, so I’ll try to at least partially salvage it.

I played a bit with Deno deploy a while back, and I must say quite impressive that using Deno deploy is very easy to fast spawn a serverless worker, similar to a Cloudflare worker.

If I were to deploy something on a large scale where serverless workers could be a suitable environment as a replacement for a different backend set-up, and I had to choose a paid service, I would probably go with Cloudflare only because it allows the worker to be written in several languages, and thus gives you better flexibility.  View full article

At last no more FART Chrome 93+

For those who like to implement both light and dark themes and want to do that in the most optimized way I have good news for you Google Recently implemented in Chrome > 93 the ability to get the user preference using server-side technologies.

Why is that important? Because just in case you didn’t hear the term FART by now it stands for “Flash of inAccurate coloR Theme”, the main issue is that if you don’t know the user preference before sending a response to a request, you can optimally set the user preferred theme.

Why not optimally? Because you either use javaScript and block the main thread to not display an inaccurate color or you determine the theme in an async way and the inaccurate color might show if the user preference is different from the default theme. View full article

Github Copilot hyped IntelliSense or revolutionary pair programming

Somewhat of a month back I applied for GitHub copilot access, out of curiosity and I am using it since I got access around 11 June 2021. To apply for access you basically submit an application form, and after it’s reviewed you get an invite to a private GitHub repo, once you have access to that repo you can use copilot by using the VS extension and authenticate with the Github account that has access to that repo, be sure to change fast the issues watching level because it’s set to all and that will basically flood your email address with thousands of emails since it’s a very popular repo.
