2020-06-05 Gemini Write

My new package gemini-write can be used to edit this site via my Gemini Write proposal.

In order to browse Gemini sites, I use Elpher.

In order to get Gemini highlighting, I use Gemini Mode.

Once you have all three packages installed, visit this site, find a page you want to edit, follow the link to the “Raw text” at the bottom and then use e to edit it. The raw pages are the only pages that can be edited. Use C-c C-c to save, use C-c C-k to cancel. Customize elpher-gemini-tokens to set passwords, tokens, or whatever you need in order to edit sites.

Currently this only works on this site, I guess.

And I currently don’t have a markup rule to render Gemini links, but I’ll add that as soon as somebody posts one. 😀

Test it here: Gemini Test.



I wonder if you also plan to support search functionality at some point?

Yes. I did that just now.

There is still some sort of bug where saving doesn’t always work and if it does not, then whatever you wrote is lost. That is definitely disappointing. I’m suspecting that it depends on the page name.

I’m starting to see the difficulties of rendering the raw wiki text to Gemini using regular expressions. That part is definitely trickier than I thought.
