Post: The Weekly Dispatch #00002

The Weekly Dispatch contains Daily Bytes, a concise, succinct overview of websites you may have overlooked during your wanderings, and Hidden Bytes, where you'll find only the finest macOS, iOS, and iPadOS applications, tailor-made for the discerning Inter-tube adventurer.

### Daily Bytes

Recently, Microsoft announced vscode.dev, an online web-based version of their Visual Studio Code text editor. You can even open a folder on your local machine and start editing. However, this feature requires that you have Microsoft's Edge browser installed on your system. I know what you're thinking: does it work on an iPad? The answer is yes, it does indeed work on iPadOS. However, local file access (even in Edge) is blocked by Apple for security reasons. Next up is a way to use the new iCloud to host your own domain name. Check out this article to get up and running quickly.

### Hidden Bytes

Do you take computer security seriously? If so, you might have a YubiKey. The YubiKey Manager is a cross-platform app for configuring any YubiKey over all USB interfaces. Next up is DuckDB-Wasm, an efficient analytical SQL engine that runs in the browser and that reads CSV and JSON files backed by filesystem APIs and/or HTTP requests. Check out shell.duckdb.org see how well it runs in your browser. On the macOS side we have Itsycal, a tiny menu bar calendar that will display a mini calendar, your upcoming events, ISO week numbers, and can serve as a fully-customizable system clock replacement.

That's it for this week. Thank you so much for taking a moment to view the Weekly Dispatch! I hope you found something worth checking out and I look forward to seeing you again next week!
