Vue – JavaScript Library Outside Google/Facebook Control

River Siene Paris Aug 2018

Vue is running on several projects to create a better admin user experience. Vuetify is layered on top and baked into WordPress themes and plugins.

You will need to add a little custom CSS to stop WordPress from stomping on the UX. You’ll also add a small localize script to seed Vue with relevant data from WordPress. A little REST applet to serve Vue requests and you get a fast good looking responsive app with far less effort than custom code, WordPress skeleton apps, React, or Angular.

Vue + Vuetify is my new go-to tool for plugins and themes.   I am happier with my choice knowing that was created and is supported by small independent developers.

Tesla’s Roadster on Jay Leno’s Garage

“I would watch, listen to these radio talk shows just tear Tesla apart; and I go, ‘Here’s a guy, building an American car in America, using American labor. Why are you not rooting for it to be successful? Why do you wish it would fail?’ I don’t quite understand.” – Jay Leno

Tesla Model 3 Quality of Components Beats BMW

The Tesla Model 3 teardown shows the Model 3 is far ahead of the competition. “Military grade components” is not typical of a consumer car at any price.

It is one of the reasons I am comfortable with owning a six-figure vehicle from a small volume manufacturer. Initial indications are that my 5 year old P85 Performance will continue to have far fewer problems than any BMW I’ve owned. I won’t be surprised if it surpasses the ’93 Toyota MR2, the best quality car I ever owned, with regard to longevity of components.

As for the article citing a concern over profitability of the lower-end $35,000 Model 3 ; I think they’ll at least break even or turn a small profit on every unit. Tesla continues to scale powertrain component manufacturing including battery production. I’d not be surprised if we hear that Tesla has lowered the battery pack costs by 20% within 12 months making the $35k Model 3 profitability much easier to reach.

Hacking A Tesla

An interesting and informative article on getting access to your “Personal Drivable Tesla Server” and in-car LAN.   One of many articles I’ve read this week that show just how far ahead of the industry veterans Tesla is in many ways.   Over-the-air updates and other vehicle tech are just one part of the equation.   I’ve been reading a lot about how far ahead of the competition Tesla is on hard components, manufacturing processes, and other elements required to build a techno-centric vehicle in 2018.

Now for the techie stuff about hacking a Tesla from this 2015 article:
