@technikhil314 @MozDevNet Correct. I guess that’s what they mean in part by “It’s much harder to maintain since it requires manual testing” (github.com/mdn/mdn-commun…).

@rauschma @usefulthink Parallels works great, but it’s a bit of a never ending expense. They really really want you to update regularly for a (discount) fee. It works great on M1 though, given you buy the latest version.

@cramforce The reports of “ServiceWorker ☠️” are greatly exaggerated, though. This is more a “yay, installability 🎉” than a “RIP service workers”. It’s a noteworthy experiment nonetheless.

@jh3yy @steren If it requires extra mark-up that is purely for the internal functioning of the thing, then it’s a great candidate to abstract away in a custom element. I reckon this was not your point (the CSS was). I just thought how neat this would be f

@jh3yy @steren Looking at the code, the sparkle effect (that should probably be optional in a custom element) and the shadows seem to require the wrappers.

@steren @jh3yy Not really, since it needs wrapper elements like `div`, which is an implementation detail you can hide if you make it a custom element.
