Hello! from the 0.1.0 alpha of my standalone React micropub-authoring component. There was probably no reason to code my own mini-CMS from scratch but here we are. As I said yesterday, the main goals are

  1. to learn how to use React Hooks, and
  2. to finally split infinitives take testing seriously.

Today was the most productive day I’ve had in months — just sitting at the kitchen table.

👍🏼

today: extracting the micro.blog panel of my dashboard project into its own standalone thingie.

Forcing myself to do 2 things, here: (1) use React’s new Hooks API (immediately valuable. neat!), and (2) create comprehensive(-ish) tests.

I think have completely overhauled the auth mechanism on my dashboard project to the point where it not only doesn’t leak my info, it might even be usable by anyone with indie-authentication and a micropub endpoint. Maybe I can turn that React component into its own ’thing.’

my dog and a white dog on the loose

another day, another stray. This is Walker, who came tearing across the street and field at Grove Park and Ivy Green Trail to play with us. Then he went racing around all the row houses right there. Fortunately after only 3 or 4 minutes of chasing him around and cutting thru yards, his owner came up in his SUV. He had been out circling the neighborhood hunting. Unlike yesterday, Walker hadn’t gone far, he was just goofing off in the park across the street from his house.

3 years of coding in JS & Node and I just got app.use(express.static(path.join(__dirname, "../public"))); correct on the first try, without hitting docs to remember how it works. 🎉

I read about “sandwich sudoku” in Alex Bello’s puzzle column last night and I’m already hooked.

auto-generated description; it's probably the dog

This dog starts following me on Summertree. I walk up and down a few blocks trying to coerce it into showing me where “home” is. A woman in a silver Honda drives by and I flag her down. She lives in SW but not this area, is headed to a friend’s house. She calls that friend while I text someone who used to live over here. Her friend tells her to snap a photo. So she pulls over and gets out of her car. But the little dog is so friendly it jumps in! The friend on the phone says “oh gosh just bring it over and we’ll put it on FB”. So, good deed done, I keep walking. 5 blocks later I get to Merchant’s Row and a lady in an SUV is flagging down walkers. So I go waving my hands at her from about 2 blocks away. Tell her the whole story. “Somewhere at the other end of this neighborhood there’s a silver Honda. They’re putting your dog on FB.” I try to walk alongside her car but Rey is already beat and needs a rest. I suggest that she cruise the streets looking for the Honda and I’ll catch up. 10 min later I finally get down near Shumard Oak, on Raleigh, and see her pulling away from curb in front my friend’s former house. She u-turns, finds me, says thank you, has her dog back. #ADVENTURES
