Right now, <a href="/tags/Booth" class="hashtag" title="Booth tag">#Booth</a> uses regular expressions to find hashtags and links. I'm working on a parser that uses a <a href="/tags/Rust" class="hashtag" title="Rust tag">#Rust</a> crate called <a href="/tags/Pest" class="hashtag" title="Pest tag">#Pest</a> that should be a lot cleaner and easier to extend.

I enjoyed this episode of Fullstack Radio. The host and guest discussed developers' tendency to over-engineer projects or try to plan too much upfront vs building a minimum viable product and iterating on it.<br /><br /><a href=""></a><br /><br />It's something that has frustrated be at work before. With <a href="/tags/Booth" class="hashtag" title="Booth tag">#Booth</a>, I'm going the MVP route. It's much easier to build something small and add to it than trying to see the future. And its more fun having a prototype to hack on. <br /><br /><a href="/tags/development" class="hashtag" title="development tag">#development</a> <a href="/tags/software" class="hashtag" title="software tag">#software</a>

👍 Got replies rendering today. I think I'm going to start working on <a href="/tags/webmentions" class="hashtag" title="webmentions tag">#webmentions</a> now. Also, there's an emoji in this post, so let's see how it renders on my site.


New <a href="/tags/test" class="hashtag" title="test tag">#test</a> from <a href="/tags/Omnibear" class="hashtag" title="Omnibear tag">#Omnibear</a>. I like how it tries to build up the slug automatically. And being an extension in my browsers is very convenient. Hopefully, it works with my site.

Sweet! That seemed to work. The new code is a lot cleaner, but still could use some work.

I rewrote my implementation of the post type discovery algorithm, so this is just a <a href="/tags/test" class="hashtag" title="test tag">#test</a> to see if it works.


I need to fix the timestamps on my posts. They're in twenty four hour format and four hours ahead of EST

I tested the <a href="/tags/Together" class="hashtag" title="Together tag">#Together</a> app against my site and it didn't work. That's almost certainly an issue with my <a href="/tags/MicroPub" class="hashtag" title="MicroPub tag">#MicroPub</a> implementation. I only just finished basic support so it's still missing a lot. When I'm at a computer tomorrow, I'll inspect the payload it's sending and fix my site.
