I’m currently rolling my own solution to have tagged links in Pinboard sent periodically to my Jekyll blog as an individual article in a specific template.
I’m now wrapping my head around whether I should save these RSS feeditems as array, object or JSON as a buffer.
Learning to program is hard! Lots of trial and error but the endresult is very gratifying. It feels good you can make something to scratch your own itch instead of looking for 3rd party solutions.
I am searching on the internets for some solutions on how to include a searchbar and resultspage on my Github-pages flavored Jekyll site. What are the recommendations from the Microblog community on this? lunr.js? Super-search? Simple-jekyll-search?

We just finished our demo/livingroom in the office. We now have various smart home devices we can hook up to our Olisto app to test and demo. Of course I had to make sure there are comfy chairs. Here’s me working hard in our nice IKEA lounge chair. Love this place.
Ah yes. As always it’s Mr Terpstra to the rescue to get me started with a direction for the Pinboard > Jekyll connection! A “Web Excursions” system for static blogs - BrettTerpstra.com
I started thinking about a way to make a clever connection between specific tagged Pinboard entries to a formatted and published blogpost on my Jekyll-based site. Do I need Github hooks? Anything else? Where to start?
I like this. Too many great quotes and ideas on blogging and selfpublishing to choose from. So I pick this one:
“We need to switch mode from passive to active, from consuming to creating. Start sowing seeds.”
My bloggingstreak is hard to keep up. Due to family responsibilities I haven’t really written anything the last couple of days. Even half ideas jotted down while in transit don’t get a follow up. Time to refocus.
A warm welcome from The Netherlands to @donmelton on the Microblogs!
Twitter has their suggested users you might follow, Instagram has the list of interesting people/hashtags, Facebook just looks in your brain to see who you might know and Microblog has Discover.
Mastodon doesn’t have this and I miss it. I need some inspiration thrown at my feet.
Lately I’ve been deep in the Internet History Podcast from Brian McCullough. Great episodes ranging from the start of Netscape to Justin Hall as the “first” blogger. Totally love the indievibe we had back then. Find it near a podcast-shop near you!
Another project to find out: When my site gets updated by Ownyourgram, it’s a different version then my local version. I have my own workflow that doesn’t really check to get the latest version first from Github. Is there a way to check this before
git push without having to think about fetch and pull?
Kinda curious how MB breaks down to countries. Do you have an idea on that @manton? I think there are at most 20 Dutch people here….
