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.

Thanks for writing up this proposal! I really like your idea that Javascript APIs should have a declarative counterpart. It seems obvious in retrospect that the web share API needs a simpler, declarative form that can cover the most common use case.

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.
