Really happy to see that #webmention is now a W3C recommendation. 👏 @aaronpk and all @indiewebcamp implementers.

Pushed my Micropub client live - Micropublish https://micropublish.net - just in time for the new year. Now time for a few drinks. Happy NY!

Micropublish 2

Today I pushed a rebuild of my Micropub client, Micropublish, live to https://micropublish.net. The source is on GitHub. 

I’ve squeezed it out just before the end of 2016 so that I meet my IndieWeb commitment. For the first time I’m now able to edit posts on this site and delete (or undelete) them if needed. 

There are a couple of things I want to improve, but it’s ready for use. If you have a compatible site I’d welcome you to kick the tyres and let me know how you get on.

Writing computer programs is interesting and fun.

My 2017-01-01 IndieWeb commitment is to complete my rewrite of Micropublish to support Micropub updates, deletes and undeletes. My site’s Micropub endpoint supports these methods so I now need to bring my client up to date.

Performed by only the most skilled, a Lucky Barry is a crap where bog roll is only required for posterity. In essence it’s the perfect crap with no mess. Handy when attempting to take a crap in the woods. “There was no bog roll in the shitter, thank God it was a Lucky Barry.”

TIL: Lucky Barry.

My MacBook Pro is almost always closed and plugged in to a display. I’d love to buy a wireless keyboard with TouchID for 1Password/Apple Pay.

Transformative

I’m happy to say this site is now running my new IndieWeb microblogging software, Transformative, which I’ve open-sourced on GitHub.

Success rate of my Apple Watch unlocking my MacBook Pro is now in the 90s% 👍

So I’ve been hacking away for a couple of months but I think I’m almost there with my new personal website/engine.

My aim has been to rebuild to support the latest Micropub draft specification, including full edits and deletes/undeletes via JSON, and pass the Micropub.rocks and Webmention.rocks test suites.

I’m now at 100% for both and I suppose all that’s left is to refactor a tiny bit, import my content, write it up and then push it live. It’s tempting to keep tinkering but I think I’ll learn more from selfdogfooding and getting it out in the wild.

A friend looking for a project mgmt job for 4 months asked for help from friends on Facebook. Within a week has 3 job offers. Recruitment.

The first @venntrodev “DevOps Friday” has begun: a day of improving the @wld platform. I’m learning about #golang to fix a broken tool.
