lve found though that sometimes a monolith can help. e.g. though I love vim and its key bindings, an IDE of some kind, whether it’s Visual Studio or Emacs, can really help tie things together. The key is providing a wrapper around well defined components, not rebuilding everything from scratch. This is where there is great value in something like known or the WordPress lndieweb plugins.
The Unix philosophy makes sense when it comes to indie web etc. Various small components doing their jobs well and interacting with each other through defined formats and protocols.
l like the idea of Delta chat. A way to have ad-hoc group chats that doesnt require anyone to necessarily install anything new. I’m not sure it executes perfectly, but I like tihe idea. I want something a bit like appear.in but just for text chat.
syncthing wasnt working between phone & tablet for some reason, possibly a firewall issue? Introducing laptop as a relay seemed to sort it.
3 way sync between laptop, phone & tablet with syncthing. Cool!
Also I need a way to get albums of photos on to my website. (Or just individual photos for that matter.)
Have to be careful with Syncthing if you’re moving files/folders around – could result in syncing an empty folder! Check the FAQ on how to do it.
