Kilpse Blogging

Interactive web applications are always more appealing than static sites This blog explores using the klipse plugin to add interactive code snippets to this blog.

Very often seeing the output of running code is key. I was really excited when http://lighttable.com became available . It seems to be a very quiet project these days but the output and value of variables while working on the code is really exciting - especially when writing unit tests. The RED/GREEN refactor loop running as you type is a real boost

Using CWs

One of the new features on Mastodon for a recovering twitterer is the CW field for new posts. CW stands for Content Warning. When I’m composing a post, if I press the CW button, I have the option of putting a short phrase into a dialog. Readers will initially only see that short phrase, and need to click a button to see more. But there's a lot of strong opinions on when and how to use it - how do I navigate that?

The usual Twitter convention is to follow the whole person, meaning one Twitter account for a person would tweet on many different subjects. In the Fediverse, however, that's not encouraged, so we'll see many people having multiple Mastodon (and other) accounts.s

Twitter feed now cross-posts to Mastodon

One of the main things I wanted to do with Mastodon was to replicate my twitter feed there, so that folks who would rather follow me on Mastodon could get everything. To do this, I used moa.party You have to give it credentials to access both your Twitter and Mastodon feeds, which is a little worrisome, but my Mastodon-aware colleagues have used it without problems.
