Improving FrontierNav's Tests
This week was mostly around improving FrontierNav's tests which I wrote about separately since it's quite long. You can read about it here.
I started using Flatpak (via Flathub) for most of the applications I use. I don't know why sandboxing hasn't become the default by now but it's nice to see some progress on it.
Deno also comes to mind as a replacement for Node.js/NPM. It doesn't sandbox, but at least it restricts access. Though, I'm not entirely sure if its reliance on grabbing remote dependencies via HTTPS is safe without lockfiles and hashes. I took a quick look just now and it looks like it's being figured out.
Thanks for reading.
