Typolino – Adding Features (one year later)

Coming back to a side project after a year can be pretty painful. I actually wanted to see how it goes with Typolino. Is the CI/CD pipeline still working?

I’m pretty sure there is a cleverer way of doing it but maybe I just need to get used to the system first.

Typolino – Web Worker
