I like .

And I want to have it accessible from within and updated via .

I don't still have that working but here's the plan.

1. Develop an application in that interacts with Todoist API. [this is now underway:]

2. Interface that Nim application with Emacs. I don't have that either, but I got an experiment of Nim-Emacs interface working in
3 - 1/2

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

learning #nim

i like it so far, the syntax is nice and language itself gives me a comfy feeling, there're first-class functions and metaprogramming; the idea of compiling to c source and delegating optimizations to c compiler (which is indeed good at it) is clever; i also get a garbage collector while manual memory management is still possible

Things in which you cannot recreate the joy you get doing the first time:

Unboxing my brand new Suunto Core All Black watch, exploring all the settings by my self, and then reading through the whole manual to discover more things that I missed in my exploration.

[The watch is awesome!]

C-u C-c * in #orgmode with the cursor at the beginning of the first line of a plain list converts it to headlines.

#orgmode #orgmodedetails

Raspberry Pi + Syncthing = awesome org mode sync haven. Could be annoying to get there though. Anyone would be interested in reading about it?

Apple locking out gnu/linux distros with their T2 security chip os is (amongst a variety of sins) a big blow to people who want to reduce ewaste or hold onto Apple hardware longer than Apple typically gives support.

GNU/Linux had been a popular way of stretching the lifespan's of aging Apple hardware. People have been doing this for decades; and occasionally popularized by websites like

New m.t custom emoji: :ivoted:

This is really useful when you already created a new file with the intent to copy contents from an existing file.

It's the reverse approach of first opening that original file and then doing `C-x C-w` (write-file) -- also known as "Save As" in the world outside .

Note to self: Make more use of the awesome default binding `C-x i` (insert-file).

M-x insert-buffer is another useful command along the same lines.

The convenience of ox-hugo is unparalleled. One Org mode file holds your entire site. Its trivial to export your whole site to hugo compliant markdown or just one page/post.

#emacs #org-mode #hugo

I just saw someone use an Emacs emoji. :emacs:

I thought: there better be one for Vim. There is... :vim:

#Vim #Emacs

Finally, after months procastinating, I finished my post about blogging using only org-mode! Just a pure approach, without using any other static site generator. All of you, #Emacs gurus of Mastodon, I'm waiting for any possible feedback on this experiment!

The super awesome Hugo version v0.50 (that makes you artificially create errors so that you can see them beautifully presented in your browser while running `hugo server`) is out!!

Download it for your nearest semiconductor device from here:

@alexjgriffith If you have any questions, feel free to send them my way. I was in a pretty similar situation with a mess of Python/Flask that I wrote as a freshman in high school. The documentation for Hugo is great, though, so you should be able to expect a fairly easy transition

This thread on Quora captures some of the best stories from real people meeting Steve Jobs — some wonderful memories.

“You don’t often get close to people like the Jobs, much less in a ridiculous situation like this, where you realize that they are just really good people.”

Night mode magic on Pixel 3!!

Left: (not pixel3)
Right: (pixel3) ;of course

The night mode algorithm in the Google Camera on Pixel 3 is just amazing (under statement). It takes about 2 seconds to gather all the needed light, and then creates a non-blurry image as you see in the right above; while also auto white balancing correcting out all the Halloween blue light.

Just amazed!
