Copyeditor on commit
Yesterday I wrote about the markdown linters we use at Mapbox. Our other test suite focuses on language and asserts the Mapbox documentation styleguide.

A test for haiku
To support my post Haiku 2018-2019, I created remark-lint-haiku to make sure that each haiku is in 5, 7, 5 syllable pattern. The linter uses syllable to count the syllables.

Haiku 2018-2019
I found an old note that contained a project to write a haiku every day. My project started in December 2018 and ended promptly in January 2019. The themes included work, baking, and difficulty finding nice fabric.
