My thoughts on and motivation behind GoBlog reactions

Published on in ✍️ Posts

Yesterday I announced a spontaneously developed GoBlog feature, reactions. The post also got a lot of reactions, over 900 times the buttons were pressed. But I also got some comments.

Not only Telegram implements new features, I spontaneously had an idea and a bit of programming desire. As an optional feature GoBlog now offers “reactions”. I don’t think I need to explain this feature, just try it out on this post. 😉

Mastodon 3.5 finally supports the Update ActivityPub activity. GoBlog supports sending updates for quite a while already, but only Pleroma showed the updated posts and not Mastodon. That would have been useful recently, when I posted “Spaces!” but wanted to post “Tabs!” and updated my post. 😅

Not too long ago I reported how I build the Docker images for GoBlog using Drone and Docker-in-Docker.

My blog(s) just got a new feature: A link to the current day archive (🇩🇪). There it is possible to see posts on today’s date in earlier years. Even more features are linked on my More (🇩🇪) page, by the way.

Finally I have implemented a kind of trash in GoBlog. When I delete a post, it is first marked as deleted and can be restored within 7 days. Unfortunately the integration with ActivityPub is not that easy. ActivityPub allows to Undo a Delete activity, but Mastodon doesn’t support that, just like Mastodon doesn’t support Updates. 🙄

I subscribe to the Hacker News front page via RSS. There is a lot of stuff there that I just mark as read without taking a closer look. But sometimes something catches my eye and I take a closer look. Today “Show HN: A tool to send push notifications to your phone, written in Go” is one of them.

Instead of banging my head on Advent of Code, I coded something useful today: Text-to-Speech for GoBlog using the official Google Text-to-Speech API. When posting, an audio file is generated automatically from the post content. And, I have to praise myself for this, I documented the feature as well! 😄

Every good blogging system should have an option to schedule posts for later! GoBlog now has such a feature as well. And this is the first scheduled post. 😀

Building Docker images in Drone CI using Docker-in-Docker

Published on in 👨‍💻 Dev

This evening I tried to improve the build process of GoBlog. GoBlog gets built using Drone CI and Docker. The problem was that two image variants are to be built, one based on the other, and the whole thing always took quite a long time.
