2018-05-24 Feeds

I think I’m going to unsubscribe from all the blogs that don’t provide full articles in their feed. If they do that, I need to click through and open a browser. That makes me think people want to show me their ads and I’m doing my very best to block them. They probably don’t like me blocking the ads, and I don’t like seeing the ads, so it’s better to part ways, I think. And now I can use feh as the external browser for newsboat, I guess. (feh is a simple image viewer.)

Sometimes I guess the fault lies with the authors of tools and the defaults they picked. What were they thinking? Then again, the Oddmuse default feed (my own wiki and blog software) also defaults to showing the default instead of the full text. Gah.




Another thing I noticed on your default feed is it includes comments (I like that!). Is there a way Oddmuse can combine the full feed with comments in full? Call it the “deluxe” feed, if you will!

I noticed that my markup rule for Mastodon accounts assumes all lower case for account names. Heh. 😏

I’ll have to investigate the full feed thing. It should be possible for sure.

Hey! I believe that does it. Trying it out on newsboat/newsbeuter (haven’t fully migrated my server to 18.04 Xubuntu) shortly, but Firefox’s view looks good
