Template instructions (start here)

First of all, thanks for purchasing Primer — I'm thrilled! If you have any questions as you go through the setup process, please don't hesitate to shoot me an email. Let's get started!

  1. Duplicate this template to your own Notion workspace
  2. Create your site on Super and use your newly created page as the Notion URL
  3. Add your code to your Super settings: Sites > Settings (Gear Icon) > Code
  4. Under the Head tab, add the following code:
    <!-- jQuery v3.2.1 -->
    <script type='text/javascript' src='https://code.jquery.com/jquery-3.2.1.min.js' id='script-name-js'></script>
    <!-- Product Theme javascript -->
    <script defer="defer" async src="https://mattdowney.github.io/primer/site-min.js"></script>
    <!-- Primer styles -->
    <link rel="stylesheet" href="https://mattdowney.github.io/primer/styles.css">
    <!-- Add Analytics here (optional) -->

    Under the CSS tab, add the following code:
    This is where you update your template's colors.
    Select any hex color you'd like for --bg (background), 
    --contrast (text), --accent (accent color). 
    Please only change the 6-character hex color.
    :root {
      --bg: #E9E5D7 !important;
      --contrast: #070200 !important;
      --accent: #FE5B12 !important;
  5. Set up your pages on Super
  6. Sync URLs

    You can use Sync URLs if you like, but we find that adding pages manually to Super is a much more reliable way to handle page integration. This may change in the future, but we recommend doing this for now.

  7. Setup your navigation
  8. Before you launch, have a look at this checklist:
  9. Checklist
    Change the links in the Footer database
    Update your favicon in Super

I was always a pretty good orienteer technically, but I was always busy. As such, I prioritised other endeavours over my core fitness. That changes this year.

A Christmas treat for serverless fans, as we discuss a workaround for using Axios-based libraries with Cloudflare Workers.

Fans have been calling for changes to the way that football is governed for years. Clubs in the English Football League have lurched from crisis to crisis, with self-regulation seemingly powerless to intervene.

From 2010 to 2019, I was quite comfortably the Most Online person that I knew. I joined Twitter back when shortcode messaging was still encouraged, I was a day one user of Instagram for Android, and I was one of the few people on this planet who genuinely loved Google+.

I’ve liked electric scooters for a long time. I’ve used them in a couple of countries to great success, and I’ve advocated for their introduction in the UK. In our current climate, such a socially-distanced, environmentally-friendly way of getting around should be welcomed.

It is not for the archivist to pass judgement, but to evidence without fear or favour to those that will: the more data that we can capture to ensure that reality is not lost to the annals of time, the better.

The problem with Openreach isn’t a lack of state control. The problem with Openreach is almost precisely the opposite: the state has granted it near-monopoly over broadband infrastructure in the UK with no repercussions for poor service.

Setting up a desk at home and returning to the company of my own thoughts, hammering out a few hundred lines of code in the process, would ordinarily be a walk in the park. But this isn’t ordinary. None of this is ordinary.
