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

Interesting changes coming up in life .. my office location has changed (same job), but that makes my wife's and my work work close to each other (earlier 2 hours apart, now 20 mins).

So now we are moving, have put up my current house for rent, and need to find renters.

But yay to the upcoming 20 mins commute vs the current 55 mins 🎉

@codesections those that have not already discovered the delights of #orgmode are destined to recreate it ;-)

All wikis should standardize their markup/down language to #orgmode. This would make it so much easier to store and read in flat text files.

Remacs has moved to its own GitHub organisation, to reflect the growing community!

We have a whole bunch of friendly contributors :)

For those who haven't seen this yet: A Google+ users collected his old posts on using calc, the built-in RPN calculator in Emacs, and archived them into this repository:

This includes: Working with different bases, algebraic operations, calculus, even rational and date arithmetic.

How clever it was to put them on Github is a different question, but from my first impressions, it seems like a good resource to get acquainted with calc.


The problem (wonderful thing?) with #FOSS:

> "Oh, I think I'll try out the Fish shell".
... (hours pass)
> "Oh, this is *almost* perfect, but I can't quite get the prompt right"
... (hours pass)
> "Oh, ok, looks like I've just agreed to submit a PR to fix my issue with the prompt"

@kaushalmodi you know, I'm re-watching Starwars, and I just can't help thinking you saying "magit different from git, is not. it is the same. it is all around us. In the rock, in the trees, in you, in me, yes..."



I'm not sure if is removing the blank newlines or Mastodon itself.

Do you know if anything on the app changed with respect to whitespace removal?

Above, I have 3 blank lines in total, but I won't see any once I post. This is what it looks like when typing (attached).

This helped:

I believe now I have all the extensions and other settings almost like before after copying the below from Desktop/Old Firefox Data/:

- browser-extension-data/
- extensions/
- sessionstore-backups/
- addons.json
- addonStartup.json.lz4

[ Looks like I will need to snoop into that Old Firefox Data for few days each time I find something missing that I had before I updated from 64 to 65. ]

Argh! Updated to Firefox 65 and lost all my addons! And looks like the Firefox Sync synced the auto-removal of addons too.

I love these moments when I document a project and take the opportunity to refactor the code in order to use all the cool tricks I learnt since I wrote it.

Great news: Ivy 0.11 has been released:

It's the first (stable) release since over a year, with a lot of improvements.

If you haven't tried Ivy yet, definitely give it a go. It's smarter than ido, but lighter than helm.


Now that was a fun print in vase mode. Almost looks a bit surreal in the photo:

I can only assume the #github users who forked my #emacs config files are either bots or hit the wrong button. I can understand studying other peoples configs (I do it all the time) but living in someone else's personal config just seems weird.

Ok folks, part 2 of my capture templates is up!

And, if you happen to use and I need your help figuring out why mine is acting up... >.>

Much thanks! and feel free to ask anything :)

('s workout) is awesome!

I'm doing Alpha for a month, and now I'm repeating that to perfect it before moving to Gamma.

I'm already seeing the difference! My days are more productive.

Is there any #emacs or #org-mode user that analyzes the clocks with something more complex than the clock report? I'm triying to see what I can do with this information.

@jrss for me, the ox-hugo exporter was a game changer. Suddenly sub-trees in arbitrary org files became places to keep track of blog content with close-to one-click publishing.

"In open source, people work as people, not as companies. You can find the name and email address of the person who wrote a particular feature and send them bugs and questions." (
