I have the motivation of a large rock so most things are a win for me.

A few weeks ago, I created a small website ( that lists domain-hack type URLs ending with .sh. It scrapes WHOIS several times a day and the page is re-built automatically from the scraper output. All done with Github actions – which I'd never used before.

I was a little disheartened by the site's lack of traffic though and so I started reading about SEO. I'm familiar with many of the practises but SEO always seemed a bit skeevy to me. However, with few visitors, I finally accepted that if I wanted to make a successful website, I needed to learn SEO and marketing in general.

So, this week, I set up a blog – ostensibly as a sandbox for experimenting with SEO. I haven't learned so much about SEO yet – and I'm still to write a decent post – but I did enjoy honing my design skills and learning about CSS grid and flexbox. It also gave me the chance to become more familiar with Jekyll and I wrote some Liquid template plugins to handle things like fetching post thumbnails. It's not perfect but I found enjoyment working on it. (And it's been a while since I've found proper enjoyment doing computer stuff.)

The blog is

I was in the same boat up until like 6 months ago! I was working as a consultant on a project but for the most part was doing basically nothing. I started working on a few things and 2 months ago committed to building a social media platform, have been working on it ever since.

Really feels like I'm starting to enjoy playing with computers/websites again! Good luck to you on keeping the momentum going, its easy to do when you remember coding is actually really fun!

I've started to add workflow management capabilities to my startup project 😌

GitHub logo inspr / inspr

Inspr is an agnostic application mesh for simpler, faster, and securer development of distributed applications (dApps).

A Cloud Native Application Mesh.

Describe, connect, secure, test and deploy distributed applications with less effort.

Inspr is an agnostic application mesh for simpler, faster, and securer development of distributed applications (dApps). With it you can coordinate the application lifecycle and how the subparts of a dApp interconnect themselves.

For Inspr’s point of view, a dApp is defined as an abstraction on top of the concept of a microservice. We extend the model by adding patterns of composition, communication, security, and adaptability to the application during runtime.

🎛 Compose

With Inspr one dApp can be connected to another and those two will become a new application. Consider as an example where we’re creating a online shop called “Sammyfy”. To build this product we’ll need a few services such as payment, catalog, and delivery.

Of course, we could create those three services and interconnect them by using Rest API or even…

Was a week of debate about what should and shouldn't be done. In the end the proposal passed haha
