Another trio of fascinating links. podviaznikov.com took me to montaigne.io which the site is made with. Montaigne is a simple tool that allows you to publish any type of website from Apple Notes , the docs are not yet complete but I certainly want to keep an eye on.
My On this Day page leads me to think about webmentions. I’ve also been listening towhich reminds me of MarsEdit.
Mar’s edit has custom formatting macros so I am testing one that add the u-in-reply-to class to links:.
Hopefully this is the right way to format a macro.
Interesting, the rather challanging hypothes.is comments were interesting too.
My blog was born on 5th February 2005, which makes it 17 years old today. I continue to find blogging valuable, both the process and the concept. I also read old posts most days which may well be the best thing about it.
I am back using the blogging bundle for TextMate to post to my blog. > 400 posts on this blog were created using textMate. I really liked using it.
I stopped using TextMate for blogging when I started using IndieWeb concepts on my Blog. TextMate has no way of doing post kinds. I am now thinking I can blog to a draft (see the screenshot below) then sort out the post kind in the browser.
Since TextMate went to version 2 it no longer had the templates feature. This allowed you to produce the headers at the top of the file. I though I’d just make an Alfred snippet to do that, when I did so I found I’d already done that a while back!
Mind you TextMate is getting long in the tooth and the blogging bundle has not been updated for 4 years. I am running Mojave on my mac and when I finally upgrade a few OSs I suspect things will not run smoothly.
Update, made from TM, the image above looks strange in the media library. Worked in the post fine, but has a file icon rather than a thumbnail.
Five years ago I reviewed the previous years blogging by making a word cloud from the posts titles 2015 in Titles.
I though I’d have another go. The result is quite different.
I’ve been using this plugin on several pages on this site for a while. Recently I’ve seen errors on some of the pages and occasionally on other posts pointing to this plugin. I checked and it has not been updated for 7 years, so decided to pull the plug.
Rather than find a new plugin I just changed the pages to use the new Blocks editor and add feeds using some blocks.
For some I used the Display Remote Posts Block – WordPress plugin. This I discovered & installed through the add block interface & found later that it has installed a plugin. On others I used the built in RSS & podcast player blocks. All three seem to do the job.
I am not ready for the Block editor full time on this blog. I’ve been exploring it a little on Glow Blogs. But I’ve got a few things here that are incompatible (eg. Post Kinds plugin) and for my blog the classic editor, is usually more than enough.
