Mastodon seems to be a much better choice for me, so I moved to https://mstdn.jp/@tdemin

alright, that was good, but too hard to maintain. Goodbye, #twtxt world!

@benaiah (re: static site) you should really give Jekyll a try. Probably the best system out there. Works like a charm for me.

@mdom yeah, the population of less than fifty persons on the list allows us to greet anyone new with true passion ;)

@kas (re: phone) BQ Aquaris X. Looks nice, has all features I want (fingerprint reader, NFC), works fast. Hope it will last for at least 2 years, a smartphone quickly becomes outdated if aged 2 years or more.

Still searching for a good Android phone under $150 that supports LTE, NFC and fingerprint reader, and allows to flash Lineage OS. Do you know one?

Had to write a few extra hooks, 'cause Git would conflict with Jekyll clearing the site directory on every build. Nonetheless, Jekyll is more usable than my previous setup with merging text files with a script.

Rewritten the site code from scratch with Jekyll. Updating the site is now a lot easier.

Just read the specs on the structured data Google expects to find on your website to display carousels, rich cards, etc. Looks like a very good way to generate more metadata than the content itself.

Why would we want <meta description>? That's too readable! It's too light for our websites! <meta property='og:description' content=''>... Now that's how it's done!

Sorry for that bunch of posts, guys! My text editor hard-wrapped the post text for unknown reason, so it became a bunch of posts instead of one.

@mdom unfortunately, its Android client isn't usable at all (it feels like a simple web app loaded in a browser activity, it's also sluggish). The desktop client is built with Electron, which is another minus. An...

@freemor that's the problem of the current certificate authorities model and not us, right? Secure is better than insecure, and Let's Encrypt will save time and make it at least convenient.
[6.4 months ago]
@freemor Let's Encrypt can handle multiple domains. At least certbot allows you to run `certbot-auto -d domain1.tld -d domain2.tld` to request the certificate that will cover both domain1.tld and ...
[6.4 months ago]
@freemor besides, why don't you just get a free Let's Encrypt certificate? If you just don't like certbot/Python, you can always use dehydrated, a simple client written in bash.
[6.5 months ago]
@freemor you don't need to install an extra app to add the certificate to trusted. At least Android M (and higher) allows you to install your certificates via Settings -> Security -> Install certi...

The worst thing is, the main use case of AMP and Instant View is blog posts and news — the text-focused parts of the website which generally need much less heavy scripting, styling, things like those.
[6.7 months ago]
Those Telegram and Google guys say you should write parsing rules for their Instant View and make an extra version of your pages to make use of AMP. Man, my blog loads in 0.5s on my phone and so does in 100ms on desktop. Why not just keeping your websi...

XMPP is a federated network, and its servers allow you to remove your account. Mastodon guys try to cover themselves under the 'federation' stuff: https://github.com/tootsuite/mastodon/issues/109
