My JSLink best practice

There are lots of examples about regarding how to correctly do JSLINK stuff, and I’ve nicked ideas from all of them.

I’ve not been happy with any of them and I still wonder about mine, but this is the best I’ve come up with.

It’s MDS compliant, in includes a routine to automatically assign a view to allow multiple JSLinks on a page and apply the same jslink on diff parts if required.

Its written in a module.

It’s a work in progress, it will evolve but I reckon I’m as far as I can get in this evolution.

Not Self Hosting

Had enough of self hosting and for $13 a year wordpress can sort it all out and I keep my domain.

So seems to be ok. DNS kicked in for me.  Cheeky wordpress doesnt do www, I find that out later after I paid.  But google’s results are all being properly directed to the equivalent page on wordpress so that’s nice.

So a saving of $11 a year is nowt really, but none of the hassle of hosting and constant updates, and the main reason I moved was a hack notice I got and I had to re-verify with google. Who needs the hassle when you know that nowadays I might have 3 registered viewers and a couple of hundred search drop ins when the main reason for this is for me to keep a record of my most handy stuff, though I should pull my finger out and slap it all in github.
