And the next month is over, May. What happened? From my point of view not very much.

I’m riding my electric bike and came across this castle. It’s called “Schloss Richmond”. 🚴‍♂️

I have now completely disabled logging on my sites. Why? Because I don’t need the logs. Sometimes I used GoAccess to analyze the 30 days of logs, but I did that less and less and it doesn’t bring me any benefit. If any page is broken, I hope someone will send me a message.

If you need a simple tool, that sends some load to your web application or site, you can use hey. You can also use it to measure the performance. It provides a nice overview of the distribution of response times and shows how many requests per second your app served.

Somehow that’s a nice feeling to hear that you yourself inspire others to do something.

📍 Post locations

Published on in 💬 Micro
📍 Brandenburger Tor, Berlin

My evening project today was to develop a feature to display post locations in GoBlog, for which I created a custom Go module (100% test coverage!) that roughly parses geo-URIs according to RFC 5870. Nice feature for when the location should be relevant for the post context or I want to save where I shared a photo. An example in this post. 😉

TIL: gob

Published on in 👨‍💻 Dev

Today I learned about gob. gob is a package from the standard library of Go and allows to store structs efficiently as a byte array. Faster than encoding data in JSON for example. Useful for communication between Go programs or for temporarily storing data. In GoBlog, I’ve recently been using gob for a SQLite-based queue for verifying webmentions and sending ActivityPub requests. gob has the same interface as the JSON package.
