I just realized the side project I've been working on for the last couple weeks is almost ready to be used. And that's a pretty big deal, because I _never_ finish side projects.
Will this be the first one?
Will I become a new person that actually finishes things?
Oh, the intrigue!
@jon_valdes What is it? :3
@xiroux It's basically a clone of pinboard.in, minus the social part. A website to store links you want to preserve
@estebanm @xiroux currently it uses w3m to store an ascii rendering of the link.
Storage is flat files as json (hey, I can move to a real DB if the thing ever goes viral).
Server is in rust, and the web page itself is 99% html rendered on the server, so no JS required. Only using 3 lines of JS for a small cosmetic thing right now
