Good feelings for '24: multi-page, here we come!

👋 I'm @ndyg

If you're thinking, what a shambles: I hear you. It's currently only possible to maintain a single cross.stream page from Stacks. I'm experimenting with ways to go multi-page.

On the Workbench

  • Stacks - A terrific clipboard manager.
  • chat-app - Experimenting with composing services using shell scripts.
  • Enchanted Animal Rescue - Rescue forest animals while exercising your clipboard manager skills.
  • nu_plugin_from_sse - nu plugin to parse a server sent events stream to structured records

Digital Gardening (meta)

Non-homogenous gardens

Many people have lamented the web's slow transition from unique homepages to a bland ocean of generic Wordpress themes. Digital gardening is part of the pushback against the limited range of vanilla web formats and layouts we now for granted.

🤔 Given the essence of digital gardening and the need to counter the standardization of web formats, it's essential for cross.stream to enable users to write HTML and CSS directly

Thoughts on the above TIL:

  • need a way to surface the underlying clip's meta-data: particularly: first touch / most recent touch
  • twitter's auto-linking and default styling is very ergonomic: the 2 links the @mention above become links: its really very wiki-ish
