Fix Touch Bar Volume Buttons

By  on  

The touch bar on MacBooks has been a source of controversy since the beginning. Many mourned the loss of the escape key, while others refused to buy a new laptop to avoid the touch bar completely. I’ve not had many issues with the touch bar but mostly because I don’t really use it.

One necessary usage of the touch bar is adjusting volume. Recently the volume portion of the touch bar stopped working for me; it was though I wasn’t even touching the volume icons. For a while I changed volume via command line but that grew frustrating. Luckily I found this handy command for restarting volume and brightness controls:

killall ControlStrip 

After executing that command, my touch bar volume buttons worked again!

    Unicode CSS Classes

    CSS class name structure and consistency is really important; some developers camelcase classnames, others use dashes, and others use underscores.  One thing I've learned when toying around by HTML and CSS class names is that you can actually use unicode symbols and icons as classnames.

    One thing I love doing is duplicating OS functionalities. One of the things your OS allows you to do easily is move from one item to another. Most of the time you're simply trying to get to the next or the previous item.
