Thoughts of an IT expert

My motivation to work on GoBlog isn’t always the same. Sometimes I don’t feel like programming in my free time, so the most I do is some bug fixing when I find broken things. Sometimes I just have no time to work on new features or improvements. But since yesterday evening I feel a new push and have completely rewritten the plugin system to make it much more flexible (and I like flexibility). I had to break compatibility with existing plugins, but given the small user base and the limited scope of what plugins could do, I suspect there weren’t many. But the future looks promising…

Interesting side note: Now that DeepL Write is in public beta, I used it to improve the writing for the post on the GoBlog blog and this post. As a non-native English speaker, it’s really helpful. Because sometimes I don’t find the right words and use unusual words, or have wrong tenses or word orders, then DeepL corrects me.

A long time ago I had used Disqus on this blog for comments, which is not a good idea. Then I switched to utterances and at some point I removed comments altogether.

Tinify

Published on in 🔗 Links

Tinify or TinyPNG or TinyJPEG is the service I use to automatically compress and resize images uploaded to my micropub media endpoint. It’s a great service with a nice developer API that also offers a free limit of 500 compressions per month and has a pay-what-you-use policy after that (but I won’t upload more than 500 images per month anyway). I use a library written in Go to use the API.
