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

Welcome to my digital garden 🪴


Threads I'm pulling on with cross.stream

User facing

  • Digital Garden
  • Build your own tools


  • Stream driven development (event source)
  • Small tools (~= embrace the shell)
