Since about v0.5.0, I've been using FeoBlog as my own sort of RSS reader. I've got a few scripts that read Twitter, Mastodon, and some RSS feeds into FeoBlog for me, and then I just view my "My Feed" page and there's everything in one convenient place.
One surprising benefit of this is that I actually feel less of an urge to keep on top of things. The feed isn't going to get reordered by some unknown algorithm. There's no little "unread" counter telling me how many more I have to read until I'm "caught up". Plus, those posts aren't going to go away, I'll always be able to find them in the feed history. (Though it could be easier.)
So, generally a more healthy relationship with social media. Which is to say: I'm reading a bit less than before.
I’m flying home to San Diego today. Trying to check in to my American Airlines flight, they’re telling me I can’t carry on my bag, and offering to charge me to check it.
But their web site says:
… sooo which is it? I guess I’ll check in at the counter and see. Hopefully the lines aren’t bad. 🤞
So, working on FeoBlog, I wanted to print some data into a table in a terminal, and I was picky about how I wanted to do so, so I wrote my own.
In particular, I wanted to be able to:
The existing ones I found on crates.io required holding the table in memory.
So I just wrote my own:
Whew. Have been working on some nice FeoBlog changes that I'll probably release this weekend.
I should probably make another video. The UI is looking much better now than the one I showed in v0.1. Plus, I've learned a couple things about video capture since then.
But for now, shower and bed. 😴
