Yes, it’s pretty much a differently skinned Monocle. Minimal CSS and JavaScript, improved keyboard navigation. And a Laravel app.

I should probably have WP replace the `blockquote` tags in my original post with quotes, or `> `, in this syndicated copy. *adds to to-do list*

I am proud that in 🇧🇪 and in most of 🇪🇺 your gender identity does not define you as a person and is a non-issue. I hope that my appointment as Minister and deputy PM can trigger the debate in countries where this is not yet the case.

Oh, my. Mastodon’s solved this quite elegantly ages ago: let users choose. (It has also had actually usable image alt text since, uh, forever.)

Ik zou liever wat minder spam krijgen en wat meer betalingen van klanten, getjandorie.

Not gonna talk about RSS cl—

Wouldn’t it be nice if “Share on Mastodon” _did_ support followers-only toots, though? For the longest time, I was like, “Why bother?” but having the ability to share certain posts—like those in a certain category—only with followers is kinda cool.

Good thing we’ve got google-webfonts-helper.herokua, then! I also remember Font Squirrel not offering ready-made web font packages for SIL OFL-licensed fonts because that “would require renaming them.” Maybe Google’s reasoning for not offering alternative formats is similar?

Interesting. I used to use Jetpack’s Publicize ages ago. And my Mastodon plugin already supports posting entire posts (that is, _if_ they’re short enough), _and_ a form of threading. Requires some filter hook creativity, though.

> Jetpack 9.0 will debut a new feature that allows users to share blog posts as Twitter threads in multiples tweets.

There’s ACF and Meta Box, sure. (And then there’s Elementor and Divi. 🤢)

This toot brought to you by my work this afternoon:

Q: “Why does the content not load on this site?”
A: Third-party JS!
Q: “Why are all the links on this site broken?”
A: Third-party JS!

Text and links should not require another person’s JavaScript to work.

Just threw together jan.boddez.net/raspberry-pi, on some of my former RPi “projects.” So I don’t forget.

I’ll eventually add some photos (and set up similar pages for my guitars and arcade cabs). I mean, I could blog about all this, one project at a time, but I feel a brochure-like approach is somehow more suited.

Currently using this with (only) the IndieAuth and Micropub plugins. And my own Mastodon and Webmention plugins, for now.
