This week has been about the gif format, desktop applications with Tauri, a pipeline-based query language, a WHATWG-compliant HTML5 tokeniser, a collection of SVG icons and the rules of changing the rules in blockchain.


A pipeline-based query language more expressive than SQL and still declarative. Unlike SQL, it forms a logical pipeline of transformations, and supports abstractions such as variables and functions. It can be used with any database that uses SQL, since it transpiles to SQL.
