This is really cool! Would the website support generate the same book as HTML pages?
It's too bad this wasn't started as a podcast. I'd love to give it a try, but I'm not using facebook to do it.
I went to school at Clemson, which led to a job here in Greenville at CU-ICAR. Greenville is a much prettier and nicer city to my home city of Columbia, so I stayed (though technically I live in Simpsonville now).
Great write up! I had actually just done this on my site, but reading your article made me realize my dates weren't formatted correctly because of Timex. I grabbed your
to_rfc822 function and now my feed is validating correctly!
You may want to add some
link tags to your html so your feed can be autodiscovered. I found the link to your feed at the bottom of the page, but entering your homepage url into my reader didn't turn up anything.
Netflix doesn't allow users to sign up on ios, because of the ridiculous IAP requirements and I think Amazon and Spotify do something similar. I hope they do the same on Android. When customers start losing features (on Android) and complaining that they can't sign up for services on their device, it'll look real bad for Google and Apple.
Super agree! It's hard sometimes separating my site from ideas about "scale" and extensibility, but I don't have to care about those things because this site is just for me. I love all the IndieWeb tech, but most of it doesn't fit into my life and that's fine. That's part of what makes this my site; it does what I want it to, not some arbitrary checklist.
Nice! I think I might try using this on my site.
I want to see more local news coverage, but not like this. Podcasting was supposed to be the open medium, free of tracking. Programmatic insertion is expanding and is going to cause the same problems for podcasts that its causing for the web.
I don't ever worry about getting responses so don't feel bad about that.<br><br>And I definitely understand the Itch! As soon as I got my site set up, I decided to rewrite it using a different stack. 😆
I like that they're shorter, using one style means I don't have to think about the differences between the two, and arrow functions emphasizes that functions are just variables.<br><br>Also, your two examples aren't exactly equivalent. The arrow functions has an implicit return, so it returns whatever
stuff() returns. The
function based function has no return value.
