today i finished writing my rss feed generator in nim for my wiki. its kinda cool to see that rss still feels valuable and relevant after all these years... also it was really easy to write in #nim !
i was explaining rss to a friend, and he was like, it sounds like you're just trying to re-create social media. i thought it was funny, because before centralized platforms like fb etc, things like rss and personal websites *were* the social parts of the web

i'm just getting started on my wiki/memex - but made some progress today - now i can write pages in markdown and they'll be rendered with the same templates. i also now calculate back references (or incoming links) from other pages in the wiki, and also added file modification time to each page too
