Notes

Quick thoughts on pretty much any­thing. Sometimes a bit more elab­o­rate, be­cause why not? My archived notes and my archived thoughts can be found on dif­fer­ent pages.

  1. 2020-08-02-indieweb-posse

    I do not en­joy syn­di­cat­ing my notes to Fosstodon or Twitter. In my opin­ion, an ugly back­link at the end of every post makes for a not-so-na­tive ex­pe­ri­ence on ei­ther plat­form. I would even go so far as to say that the ac­count at first glance might seem like a spam bot!

    For brid.gy to omit such links, I need to add syn­di­ca­tion links to each of my note with the class u-syndication. This is pos­si­ble only where the Micropub server syn­di­cates con­tent and gives me the links and not when brid.gy is the one syn­di­cat­ing it af­ter the note is pub­lished.

    At the mo­ment, IndieKit does not sup­port this, al­though the readme hints it might be added in the fu­ture.

    Until then, I may opt to write notes with­out syn­di­cat­ing them, and con­tinue to use Fosstodon and Twitter as I was - pub­lish­ing na­tively to Fosstodon and Moa cross-post­ing to Twitter. The best place to read my notes then would be to sub­scribe to my all-con­tent feed or my notes feed.

    Postr by grant­codes looks like a very in­ter­est­ing pro­ject and I may opt to use it - if I can find the time. With my week­days com­pletely booked, I doubt this will ma­te­ri­al­ize any time soon.

  2. 2020-08-02-trying-svelte

    Added a live char­ac­ter count on Celestial to­day us­ing #Svelte. For me­dia up­load, I may switch from #React to Svelte and han­dle up­loads en­tirely by hand. Svelte's sell­ing point is its abil­ity to be com­piled into vanilla JS for the browser to sim­ply ex­e­cute - I like this idea!

  3. 2020-08-01-celestial-logo-volunteer

    Alright good folks of Mastodon and Twitter - I'm look­ing for a sim­ple-look­ing logo for Celestial. If any­one would like to vol­un­teer, please mes­sage me.

    Your work will have full at­tri­bu­tion with a linkback on the site's footer as well as the pro­ject's readme.

  4. 2020-08-01-new-feeds-structure

    I've fi­nally started dog­food­ing Celestial! Yay!

    My thoughts page is now archived.

    If you al­ready sub­scribe to my ear­lier one-and-only feed, you will see both notes and ar­ti­cles. If you'd like to change this, just un­sub­scribe from the all-con­tent feed and opt in to the ar­ti­cles feed. Maybe you also want to see my notes but not bun­dled up with long-form con­tent. Sure, here's the notes feed.

    Now my biggest pain points would be… au­to­mat­i­cally send­ing web­men­tions (IndieKit does not sup­port this at the mo­ment), and at­tach­ing me­dia to notes. 😊
