@simevidas @stefanjudis Oh, interesting! That’s an actually valid use case for the good old `xml:base` attribute: w3.org/TR/xmlbase/#sy…. Using full URLs would be gzipped/brotli’ed away, but are a pain to author. Not sure if this was ever discussed i@jaffathecake

@JarSyr @tavelli Not claiming it was impossible. I simply didn’t care personally and there were enough other things to learn. 😃

@DasSurma @jaffathecake @rmavuluri That’s how I roll. Serverless is a hoax anyway… 😂

@jabranr SelfHTML is a German site that provides at the time (mid-90ies) brilliant documentation (it even has a Wikipedia page: de.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Selfhtml). It’s still around today as a Wiki, but I haven’t looked at it in a long time. @MozDevNet is my cu

@voxpelli @Vincent_Scheib The Gamepad API does give you info about the connected gamepads. You rather do it the other way round: in WebHID (and all other browser hardware APIs actually [apart maybe from Bluetooth scanning]), you filter for only the devicegithub.com/tomayac/joy-co…
