📍 Skradinski Buk, Croatia

Some impressions from the Krka National Park in Croatia. 🇭🇷

Today we made 30 thousand steps. 💪

After all those steps today, tomorrow is time for some chilling on the beach. ⛱️

We arrived here completely without flying. 🛤️ But I’ll write more about that, when I’m home again…

I should have attended the Homebrew Website Club London / Europe in June, after all they talked about maps, a topic I have some experience with. James uses Leaflet to create maps with his visited coffee shops. 👍

I was just about to write a long response to a discussion I saw online. But while writing it, I realized that I have an opinion, but I can’t express it properly and somehow I don’t have anything to contribute. So I deleted my draft. I don’t have to give my two cents on everything. 😅

I’ve realized that trying to strictly follow what is on the IndieWeb wiki won’t work well for me. Thus, I have to invent and change some things to make it work better.

The IndieWeb Wiki is a good source of inspiration one could use, but I don’t see it as a guideline you need to closely follow. A lot of IndieWeb sites are too much like social media for my taste. Why replicate social media on your site when you have the freedom to make it better? I was never a fan of “post types”, too many restrictions and sometimes hard to choose between them. (Also, should this post be a like, reply or bookmark? 🤔😅)

Just got my second booster shot. 💉 Hoping to stay free of COVID-19 on vacation and beyond…

I started working on plugins for GoBlog using a Go module I recently discovered: yaegi. It still feels like magic, because Go is typically a compiled language and yaegi makes it dynamic by embedding an interpreter. Is this overkill for GoBlog or does this possibly enable flexibility like WordPress plugins?

To all my feed subscribers: If you are annoyed by the TTS audio or the “Interactions” link, add a “.min” in front of the feed type in the URL. For example https://jlelse.blog/.min.rss. Thanks for following! 😄
