My coworker Brian Douglas invited GitLab's Jacob Schatz and me to discuss GitLab's use of Vue.js on the latest episode of his podcast, JAMStack Radio - https://www.heavybit.com/library/podcasts/jamstack-radio/ep-21-why-gitlab-chose-vue-js/

@tx #stagit looks really cool, thanks for mentioning it.

Re: support for other protocols, it seems like twtxt would be pretty easily adapted to work over the p2p file network [DAT](datproject.org), though it'd need client support for DAT or some way to follow people via files and sync in the background, whic...

@dave bingo!

@kas I'm not currently using a handrolled client, but I've started a couple.

@nblade I could probably put something together, but I went this route originally because existing generators felt like they took too much control from me over the exact output. I want _very_ small, static pages ...

@leveck for sure! Especially when you're bad at doing frequent git commits when you're the only one working on something.

I'm trying to decide whether soldiering on with the messy codebase of my homegrown site generator is worth it or if I should redo my site in a more established tool.

@leveck welcome to twtxt!

@nblade welcome!

@pete that's a clever solution; I'll have to set up something like that.
[2.8 months ago]
Despite that, I'm still a big fan of the service and check it daily. It's much more enjoyable than Twitter is, for sure, even with its drawbacks.

@tdemin good points, though another that I've noticed is that it's difficult to tell who in your network is actually reachable with your tweets. My HTTPS cert went unupdated for a brief while and now I have no idea w...

@tdemin yikes! It's unbelievable that "We physically can't give you that data" is treated as "It was clear that there was no intention to cooperate with the investigation" - that's utterly absurd.

@freemor @kas #twtxt's quietness is actually something I enjoy about it. I care a lot more about signal-to-noise ratio than I care about the regular activity. It's al...

@tdemin too busy working on a twtxt client to tweet on twtxt

@kas my bad - I've been developing a twtxt client, hence the frequent requests. I'm switching it over to use a fs cache for testing so I'm not hitting the twtxt files so much.

@quite the static site CMS? It's open source: https://github.com/netlify/netlify-cms/

@phil I actually _just_ started a new job working on a frontend for Hugo (and other static site generators).
[9.1 months ago]
@quite that's one of the approaches I was thinking of.
[9.1 months ago]
@kas that sounds fair to me.
[9.1 months ago]
Additionally, there's a lot that can be done by a client to reduce the network traffic and UI latency of twtxt _without_ changing the protocol.

When it comes to performance issues, I honestly think the solution is just "don't follow so many people". You only pull the feeds you read, and once one's feeds are too much for the _computer_ to handle, they'll almost certainly have far too much conte...

@mdom, @kas re: metadata, I'm (obviously) in favor of my suggestion for metadata-in-comments, but I don't think we should have comments _in_ comments.
[9.1 months ago]
@mdom, @dave, @kas I agree with the "no max length; show at least 140chars" idea.

I'm not working on bussard, I'm just IRC friends with @technomancy and he expressed interest in making scheme available there.

@mdom mostly for fun, but once I have it working more it'll get integrated into https://gitlab.com/technomancy/bussard.

Been checking out Dyalog APL lately - it's definitely a mind-bender.

@mdom @kas thanks! I was checking access logs on nginx and noticed a bunch of 404s to my twtxt url, so I decided to pick it back up.

How should metadata about a twtxt feed be stored? Weigh in @ https://github.com/buckket/twtxt/issues/48

Who all is using the node version? I'm more of a JS hacker so I might contribute to that, but the .py version seems more popular.
