Matthias Ott wrote a good article about writing and drafts. “Shitty drafts” allow one to let all thoughts out of your brain onto paper. Once you have that you can start editing.
So why waste your precious time by laboriously crafting a “perfect” first version of your text when you will need to edit and refine it later, anyway?
The first things I did this year was to create a media endpoint for my Micropub server. It works by uploading files to BunnyCDN via their storage API (great service and easy API!). However, now that I have this endpoint, I would also like to use it. It seems that there is a lack of clients that support uploading media to the media endpoint and then returning me the correct URL. I can use Indigenous to upload photos from my phone, but it seems like other file formats aren't supported. How am I supposed to create posts with audio or other files? Also Micropublish (the client I usually use on PCs) doesn't seem to support media at all.
Can someone please give me a tip, which client I should use or do I need to develop my own? Thanks!
Please also remind: My operating system are Linux, Windows and Android. Clients for macOS or iOS are pretty useless to me.
Update: Kristof De Jaeger replied to this post and promised some new features for Indigenous on Android. Thanks a lot! I'm still in search for a desktop solution though. I thought a bit about it and will probably create a basic web interface that allows me to upload any file until there's better support in other Micropub clients.
Happy New Year! 🎆🎉🥂
Last month I wrote about my problem with newsletters. Today I discovered the service Kill the Newsletter!. It let's you subscribe to newsletters by RSS. Therefor it creates a private email address and converts all emails received by this address into an Atom feed to which you can subscribe with any Atom-feed compatible news reader. That's especially useful for newsletters that don't provide an archive or RSS feed.
