I took inspiration from Ru and finally added a “favorite blogs” section to my blogroll. I also sorted the blogs into English and German, so that someone without knowledge of German can ignore the German blogs.
Ru Singh automated her blogroll too.
In July 2020, Jan automated his blogroll — and this validated the idea in my head. Now, my own blogroll is automated as well!
I think I’m not the first one. If I remember correctly, Jan did this already before.
A key difference is that I have my script mark some feeds as recommended based on their feed IDs from my Miniﬂux reader.
Yesterday I teased a new post about how I automated my blogroll generation by writing a Go script and using the Miniflux API. Here it is.
I just updated my blogroll and thought that it might be a great idea to share my workflow to do exactly that.
I use Miniflux a lot. Using Miniflux, I read all the blogs and get all the news, get updates from all the YouTubers and even subscribe to some Mastodon accounts (fediverse microblogs). I use multiple categories to sort the feeds. One of those categories is “Blogs” with all the blogs, which I also list on my blogroll.
