If you want usage statistics on a site, but you refuse to use Google Analytics, what do you use?

I've been pretty quiet / busy lately, but I've been finding bits of time here and there to slowly redo my wiki. I've had my previous one for over a year. It's much simpler than my current site, doesn't contain any JS, and I'm finding myself much more satisfied with it. It's generated with a mixture of Markdown and a couple ammonite.io/ scripts written in Scala. Excited to get this finished soon.

We had a huge Metals release yesterday. Tons of new features added and a lot of small improvements. I'm super proud of this project and feel really privileged to be a part of it.


Still been hacking a ton on github.com/ckipp01/coc-metals. New features include an embedded Doctor, supporting more LSP client commands, and better statusline integration.

So happy to be on break for the next couple weeks. Some much needed rest, time to work on personal projects, and time think about what I'd like to focus on in this upcoming year.

What are some of your favorite open source projects that you think have a spectacular readme?

The law of user focus

When designing a program, one should first think about how to make an intuitive and powerful program. Implementation issues should only be considered once a user interface has been designed.


Been working hard on getting this out the door. This will automate the Metals installation and offer a bunch of helpers for vim users.


It's been a while since I've been able to work on my time tracker. I've wanted to port it over to Scala for a while now, and tonight I was able to finish up the last couple commands and add my first entry with it from the Scala version.

I store my logs in Mongo with this format btw.

Today I used xxd, which I never knew existed. I wonder how many command line utilities must exist that I don't know about and will probably never use.

Scala project goals:

Make something as straightforward and easy to use as this.

Starting porting my time tracker wiki.chronica.xyz/#andaga over to Scala this weekend. Time for the third iteration.

I wish there was a way to visualize runtime flows. Be able to watch a request hit an api and see exactly where it goes, what the values are at certain points etc. Something like runtime debugging visualization. Does this exist and I just don't know about it?
