Cardigan-Bay Early 0.0.3

Cardigan Bay development is slow, but continuing. It’s starting to look a bit more respectable (I’m so NOT a CSS programmer, but I have to do something) Get the latest : Release Cardigan-Bay Early 0.0.3 ยท interstar/cardigan-bay This release is largely just bug fixes and cleaning up the UI etc. But that makes a massive […]

Welcome to Cardigan Bay

Cardigan Bay is my new wiki-engine written in Clojure / ClojureScript. I’ve been working on it for about three months, and it’s a long way from finished, but now interesting enough for people to start playing with (and hopefully giving me some feedback on). The goal is for this to be the new engine behind […]

Travelling without a laptop

Why, yes. This is, indeed, OWL running on the PocketCHIP. Here’s the story. I spent 12 days recently, travelling in the south of Brazil and Uruguay border. And I decided, as an experiment, to see if I could live without my laptop. I wasn’t meant to be working, but I always like to keep some […]

Project ThoughtStorms Update

Been working quite a lot on Project ThoughtStorms, the new Python / Bottle based wiki engine behind ThoughtStorms in the last few days. I can’t believe that I’ve spent 15 years building a wiki without creating my own software. That error is going to be rectified from now on. Sure, most of what I’m doing […]

Where I'm At, March 2017

A quick update (for me, as much as anyone else) of where I’m at and what I’m currently thinking about … March 2017: ClojureScript and Reagent I want to get up to speed on this as my standard way of writing browser based software. React seems to have conquered the world as browser based, reactive […]

Things Are Evolving

A burst of development energy in a number of directions recently. And things are starting to self-organize towards the new ecosystem. Today’s exciting news : OWL makes a very nice desktop app, thanks to Electron. Here’s the github repo. I’ll be doing more testing, compiling, packaging this shortly. So that even non-geeks can play with […]

Project ThoughtStorms : Wikish Plugin Update

I’m updating my copy of the Smallest Federated Wiki, and the plugin format has evolved again. (Not surprising, the SFW is still in its experimental stage.) So, I’ve broken out my plugin for ThoughtStorms / SdiDesk format (wikish) from the original Project ThoughtStorms and made a dedicated git repository in the recommended format, naming convention […]

Portland Pattern Repository goes SFW

Oh wow! This is MONUMENTAL! Ward Cunningham is migrating the original wiki, the Portland Pattern Repository, to the Smallest Federated Wiki. And it seems they’re doing it by making a front-end that queries the original wiki page database and shows it through the SFW. (That’s exactly what I did with ThoughtStorms before I actually migrated […]
