seeing as i have a few prominent links to some of my work floating around the internet, i wrote a utility command for the site generator that redirects multiple routes to a single one. feels like an okay solution for fighting link rot :)

· · Web · 2 · 1 · 4

(what it's actually doing: generating my static site format, which is *then* being included, parsed & generating the feeds page :>)

it has some way to go still, but if you're curious how i use it you can look inside the example folder
github.com/cblgh/plain/tree/ma

@neauoire great artists steal etc ;) think i first saw it on xxiivv when i was looking through what lieu was scraping :~

@cblgh yeah I still have something like that around : >

Now, I rely on aliases too. So I can make "fake pages" to preserve some old project names.
For example: wiki.xxiivv.com/site/workstati

At the bottom of the page:
"Redirected to computer, from workstation."

@cblgh that.. is brilliant! Added all, but I can totally see the appeal if all gets too noisy.

@cblgh the markup looks like early versions of indental when it still had runes <3 Very nice

@neauoire ya! one my goals was wanting to try something oscean-like, but without ripping you off entirely—cause that would be plain boring :)

@cblgh Well it's super readable and I think it'll scale really well :)

One of the reason I moved away from runic back then was that I stopped coding in fixed-width fonts and it had really poor readability, but unless you're planning on changing that, you should be good I think.

@neauoire really glad to hear that :tealheart: :tealheart:

fwiw: plain is designed to pair well with monotome, with an idea that i can use my existing authoring workflow to keep working effortlessly in private, while later trivially folding selected output into the public :)

@neauoire @cblgh I’m toying with a simple journaling thing, but I’m not yet sure how to store my tasks with the task manager i want to build 🤔

if both of you know some other interesting plain text database format, I’m all ears !

(pic is obviously uninteresting events of my logs)

@royniang @neauoire i think the best format is the one that you use :) hard to give good advice, feels like the proper format stems from your goals. that was the case for my choices with plain at least

@cblgh @neauoire Yeah I’ll have to write something down to get a better idea: do I want an outliner, a checkbox thing, a project thing, etc.

@royniang @neauoire tho the best thing i did when starting a work journal for the recent ssb work was creating this short script

#!/bin/bash
cd ~/code/ngi-wiki/diary
today="$(date -I)"
file="$today.md"
wc -l "$file" 2> /dev/null || $(echo "## $today" > "$file")
vim "+normal Go" '+startinsert' "$file"

opens / names the correct diary file in a specified folder. if it exists, it goes to the end of it & starts inserting :)

@cblgh @neauoire journaling is not the difficult part, I didn’t bother with parsing yet (will mostly be time-related filtering), I got this up really quickly

@surveyor3 I’m not a fan of how tasks are organized by context and how priority/tags are handled :/
