Bret Comnes

A directory of my indieweb interests, projects, and events. I am interested in projects that are low maintenance and long term in scope, p2p and distributed storage systems and anything else that makes publishing easy and fun.

Itching

Small modules to power a personal site engine. No spaghetti code. Pure and separate plain text (eg twitter style), GHF Commonmark, and plain html documents inserted into DSL free html templates. Plain text + git storage engine.

Optional static site generation or dynamic server side rendering.

Data stored in a manner that lends itself to incremental rebuilds.

Fix up git pub and experiment with accepting JSON encoded micropub reqs.

Stalled & Completed Projects

  • iwc-irc-logs-atom-feed - A simple project that turns the IWC IRC logs into a daily atom feed item so you can cache the logs for offline consumption on a mobile reader. Still needs a system to update consistently and to match the recent IRC display improvements. code
  • webmention.js - Displays data from webmention.io on a static site with javascript using jsonp. Needs some work. See webmention.herokuapp.com for a more functional and documented project currently. I'll return to this someday, but a broken version is running on my personal site currently.
