Grumpy rant:

Trying to write a script in Crystal to read RSS and post to Mastodon API.

There's one Crystal RSS shard, it's 0.1.0, no documentation.

Searching for Masotodon API wrappers, cystalshards.xyz lists one, crystalshards.org lists three. Try to click on library from crystalshards.org and page is completely blank.

Maybe I'm just spoiled coming from Ruby, but if you want to get work done instead of shaving yaks, don't use Crystal I guess?

Anybody who has mirrored BirdSite accounts to fedi, do you have thoughts on the pros/cons of sourcing posts from the developer API vs an RSS feed from something like Nitter.net or the now dead Twit RSS?


(others? boosts welcome)

Me, roasting coffee on a warm night:

Well, that temperature escalated quickly!

@signalapp whatever youโ€™re using for mirroring your posts to the Fedi is posting all your replies ๐Ÿ˜

Working on my Open Source backlog. Released #bundler-audit 0.7.0 that fixes a few outstanding bugs and adds a few things. Now to finish writing specs for 0.8.0...

@davewoodx Hi! ๐Ÿ‘‹ - Just curious, is there custom code on mirrored.social to mirror ๐Ÿฆ accounts? If so is it open source? I'd like to see how it's done ๐Ÿ˜Š

If you own a Raspberry Pi, what are you doing with it (right now)?

Anyone actually _used_ a remote development setup like vscode-remote for a lengthy period of time? code.visualstudio.com/docs/rem essentially your client only runs the editor + everything else on a remote host?

I've been using
for the past week or so and it's really nice. Helpful and super snappy

Hadn't used terraform before, but it sure beat the hell out of wading through the AWS console. WIN.

Hey, remember when Zoom abused app permissions to install an always-on background web server on your computer for no good reason? And now itโ€™s sending all your data to Facebook even if you donโ€™t have an account.

Maybe we need an alternative vid conferencing app.
