I hate to generalize, but… I’m back in Chicago for a couple days and food (and even beer) is just soooo much better here than Seattle 🤤

I feel like whenever I hear about a super smart persons writing/note-taking process it’s always something simple like Apple Notes. Recent example: Derek Thompson of The Atlantic and Plain English. I’d already been leaning away from the whole PKM thing, but this has me convinced. We’ve overcomplicated things, thinking these tools will make us smarter, but it’s all superficial. Any tool will do when you actually sit down to do the hard work (and not process work, but real work).

Given the (relatively simple) work I put in to be able to post to my blog through Discord, I’m now curious how much work it would be to build a small app that has a simple messaging-like interface for creating txt files in Dropbox to work with my Blot blog…

Second test worked! Limitation with IFTTT is it has to be a pinned message vs Zapier, which I believe can do any message, but also costs $20/mo billed annually…

Now that Bandcamp support deleted hundreds of unwanted albums I got in a 99 cent discography purchase because I said why not?” It’s much easier to navigate and actually use the app to listen to music.

Don’t really like asking for this kind of help… but I figured I’d see if anyone in the micro.blog community thinks they can help me figure out how to port some of the code from my Blot blog to a micro.blog hosted blog so I can keep the same look and feel…

Hi internet.. I created a discord server to try to bring the various corners of the internet I interact with together. Micro.blog, TiddlyWiki, Futureland, NBA Twitter, design, Kinopio, indieweb, music, comics, movies and tv, etc. Come hang: https://discord.gg/QhJasgJh

Took some time late last night to try to figure out how to port some of the code on my blot blog to a micro.blog hosted site to see if I could get that to work… Don’t really know much more than copying the JavaScript (I didn’t write…) from blot and pasting into a custom theme on micro.blog… Safe to say I could not get it to work.

A few things that are basically requirements for me at this point, which will make it hard to move away:

  1. Each date is only listed once as a header for the day and all posts written that day fall under it
  2. Posts within a day are listed chronologically (newest on top,)
  3. Non-micro posts only list the title on the homepage, while microposts are fully visible on the homepage
  4. Lastly, since the date is no longer a permalink, the title of posts should be the link to the full post and a symbol can be used for the permalink at the end of microposts (I use ✖︎ today)

I have JavaScript for 1 & 2, but don’t know how to actually implement in micro.blog. 3 & 4 are handled pretty easily for me in blot by tags. All of this lives in the entries.html file.

JavaScript snippets:

    <script type="text/javascript">
            container = document.querySelector('.container.index');
            dates = document.querySelectorAll('.{{#formatDate}}[date_]YYYY_MM_DD{{/formatDate}}');
            if (dates.length > 1) {
            container.insertBefore(dates[dates.length - 1], dates[0]);
                                }         console.log(dates);
        </script>

And…

    <script type="text/javascript">
                let allDates = [];
            document.querySelectorAll(".light").forEach(function(node) {
            if (allDates.indexOf(node.innerHTML) > -1) {
                node.style.display = "none";
            } else {
                allDates.push(node.innerHTML);
                }
                    });
        </script>

Lastly, 3&4 were relatively easy by determining how posts show up on the entries.html based on tag using Blot’s settings:

    {{#entries}}
            <span class="wrap {{#formatDate}}[date_]YYYY_MM_DD{{/formatDate}}">
            <p><span class="light">{{date}}</span></p>

            {{^tagged.🐜}}

                <p>
                    <a class="entryblocktitle" href="{{url}}">{{title}}</a>
                </p>
  
            {{/tagged.🐜}}
  
            {{#tagged.🐜}}

                 <a class="float" href="{{url}}">✖︎</a>
                
                 <span class="micro">{{{html}}}</span>
            {{/tagged.🐜}}

    {{/entries]]

I wish Apple would do more with comics in their Books app. ComiXology/Amazon basically have no competitor in the space and their recent changes to merge it with kindle have been trash. Apple already sells comics, but a few small tweaks could make them a real player in the space.

Considering moving my blog to micro.blog (from Blot)… Worried I wouldn’t be able to get it configured just the way I want it though…
