Heya folks 👋 Some of you may remember Twtxt back in the day, ~2016, where Felix that went by the Twtxt username of @buckket (he still has a feed! But very rarely posts :/) Well back in August 2020 I came across the spec and decided I would build something around it. This is it. It is a backend written in Go, that has an API, Web and Mobile App. You can think of it as a multi-user Twxt client, but we call instances of them a “Pod”. I’d love it if I could get some feedback on what we’ve built, features the backend has or you want to see. I’d also love it if at least one more person spun up their own pod and formed their own community around it like the one I know of at https://twt.u53.net (unfortuantely is pretty idle). I’m also seeking fellow Gophers who might be interested in helping out with the backend as there’s still quite a lot of work I’d like to get done! Any because I know this will come up, no, this has nothing to do with the “Fediverse” or Mastodon. Yes it is decentralised because well the Web is :D

The tabletop pressure cooker has been quite popular for several years now, which means the internet is full of related recipes, but I’d like to…Read more...

Einstein explained gravity as the bending of spacetime. A well-hit baseball arcs through the air to an outfielder’s...
