Whitespace

by Javantea
Nov 23, 2019

This is an unorganized but researched look into the purpose and sense of whitespace -- in programming, prose, poetry, and potatoes.

The most critical uses of whitespace I can think of in my past are: Python syntax, $\LaTeX\ $, PDF, HTML, novels, and E. E. Cumming's r-p-o-p-h-e-s-s-a-g-r. I shall dissect them and we can discuss in the comments about what their purpose is.

Handwritten 2

I handwrote you a blog with my good hand using my tablet. It's much higher resolution than can be displayed in this blog template, so click and zoom to read it as originally intended.

Cutting Mat

I made a quick cutting mat this morning with Inkscape, so I thought I'd share. It probably won't print on a normal printer, but because it's an SVG, it is pretty easily modifiable (I removed a row and column myself in a few minutes). I based it on the many cutting mats I saw when I searched for cutting mat on Google. That's kinda how this sort of thing works. I'm releasing it Creative Commons Attribution license. If you copy it, you're suppose to find a way to attribute me like say "by Javantea". Or don't, I mean... Where did this come from in the first place? I was inspired by others to create this.
