Pinned toot


There are multiple aspects to "Indiewebifying" your site.

@kevinmarks: Correct me where I am wrong below.

1. : You have a website be *you*, YOUR identity. That's where rel=me comes in. For lazy folks like me, I identify myself and link that to my GitHub profile.

2. : This makes your web pages parseable by the Webmention endpoints (like, that heroku app, etc.)

> Sadly, you'll need some kind of server-side dynamic rendering to show your webmentions. This will be a problem when you use a static website generator and refuse to add any kind of client-side JavaScript.

I know neither PHP nor JS. So I thought that Webmentions is no-go for me.

But I was able to make it work on my static site deployed over . See the attached image for my flow :D



#emacsconf 2019 - Main Page

This year, we are holding EmacsConf as an online conference. We will be using free software tools exclusively throughout our infrastructure, with a detailed write-up of our setup coming after the conference.


People who call a "text editor" are totally missing the point - it does SO much more than just edit text. For example:

1. Emacs has a builtin notetaking system called org-mode.
2. Org-mode has a builtin spreadsheet system.
3. This spreadsheet system has a builtin formula debugger.

That's how deep it goes. There's so much useful and awesome functionality to discover in Emacs. I've used it for 25 years now, and I still learn new stuff about it every week.

Just spent 10 minutes dealing with a misbehaving app, and wifi issues on my TV. I remember in the 90s when we were told computers would one day be as easy to use as a TV. I guess that day is here.

When these were packed into my suitcase when I first came to US for my studies, I didn't know that I'll open them after roughly 14 years, for my future son :D


today I discovered today that in order to get an "about page" to look like a post, I need to tell hugo to use the layout=single property. but ox-hugo "ran it over" each time I made changes.

So, wanted to submit an issue, found someone else with a smilar issue (where it was type) and tried to use

and it worked! *makes a little dance*

Do all hugo page properties (front matter?) translate through ox-hugo like this?

A blog post I found in wild, about blogging in using :

What's interesting is that the author seems to be motivated to write an Org Mode to Markdown exporter for Jekyll just as I was for .. and as I read through it, he mentions that bits and pieces he borrowed from for his exporter.


The #nim language is fantastic. I have been digging into the book #nim in action and the tutorials. Having lots of fun and learning new ways. Can’t wait to start learning meta programming. I can cross compile to windows also and it just works. Very impressed.

Heads up if you’re on a pre-0.58 version of Hugo (the static site generator). As of 0.58 (as far as I can tell from the release notes), your templates will most likely break as .Data.Pages is now .Site.RegularPages. You’ll most likely need to make the changes on your home page and in your RSS template(s).


Even though I can use #git from the command line, it's often easier to just use #magit to add, stage, commit, and push stuff when I'm already in #emacs. :)

If your website doesn't tell me the cost of whatever you're trying to sell me without making an account I'm just not going to buy it

Nim v1 has been released! 🎉

For folks waiting for a 1.0 release of this language before trying it out, the time has come! :)

Here's the announcement about this release:

Here are some personal words about this release by "Araq" , the creator and lead developer of Nim:

If a website doesn't function on a browser other than Chrome or with content blocking on, it loses me as a visitor. I am tired of web developers being clumsy -- prompting that we won't serve content because you block ads is one thing. A nonfunctional website reeks callousness.

oh no #hugo .58 supports EXIF and hey I could use that for location checkins on my posts and notes and wonder if I can incorporate OpenStreetMap for NO I HAVE WORK TO DO DAMMIT

@cadey Suggestion for the "auto toot creation".. can you also append the main categories of your blog post as hash-tags to the auto-created toot? e.g. I deleted and redrafted the original auto-created toot using the button on your blog post because it was missing the Nim hashtag.
