๐ŸŽ™ #56 - Oh, I forgot to mention tinylytics

Abstract Development

Life changes! Not. Ah yes, bliss.

I basically ramble about my project called tinylytics. And at the same time unable to talk or make proper sentences.

That's it... nothing more. You should subscribe.

Oh wait, and shoutouts... but really, I just mention it. Wait, is this episode a shoutout?

Abstract Development

Finishing up the release for the new iOS app for Working on Micropub and XML-RPC, and trying to get through it.

๐ŸŽ™ #52 - I'm back

Abstract Development

I talk about and getting it ready for the 3.0 and what remains.

Thoughts on digital "social" media and my decision to close Mastodon and not going down the route of hosting it. Writing for my self for "therapy".

Exploring the idea of having a central place for everything, like update blogs, newsletters and more.

Then randomly I talk about moving back to Overcast for my podcast needs, and supporting some new podcasts I've been enjoying over the years. That pretty much sums it up.

What should I do about Sublime Ads? I don't know...

๐ŸŽ™ #51 - Holiday time

Abstract Development

Sorry, no meaningful show notes this episode as I wanted to get this out for your listening pleasure.

I touch on, the web and the app weโ€™re building. Then I touch on Gluon, what Iโ€™ve been changing (like push notifications) and why โ€“ teasing some new features. And of course I forget to talk about the other features I added to Gluon, like pinned profiles 🙃 Oh and I touch on plans on monetising Gluon somehowโ€ฆ somewhereโ€ฆ

Next on the list a quick update on Sublime Ads and how I spun it off to create โ€“ and I tease a few ideas I have, even though I think itโ€™s one of those well rounded 99% done projects, meaning I donโ€™t want to change too much.

To finish the year I bring back apps from the dead and perhaps something new I might pick up.

๐ŸŽ™ #50 -

Abstract Development

In this episode I talk about taking what I made for Sublime Ads and making it even simpler, in effect copying my own idea - because who needs GitHub Copilot?

So, introducing

My journey to why I did it, like playing with the new Ruby on Rails 7 and import maps (huh?), and tell you more about shoutouts.

On why I kept it simple and building a base for my... next... project...s 😅

๐ŸŽ™ #49 - Stealing my own idea

Abstract Development

This week I talk about new things I worked on for Sublime Ads the past few weeks: Clients and Client portals for the PRO plan.

As I worked on it, I came to realise that there could be a much easier way to get started, so Iโ€™ve been working on something on the side.

Sunday was my day for and continued work on the appโ€ฆ including allowing to zoom the web view depending on your dynamic font size in iOS.

Overall just a quick update and more on it later.

๐ŸŽ™ #48 - Micro.blogโ€™s new iOS beta update.

Abstract Development

We've been busy working on the iOS app for a few weeks, bringing a new update (version 3) to TestFlight, to you your favourite fruit company.

It's a long beta and will run along the releases of the Android version.

I cut a lot of this episode because of a car that started parking right next to me... I left some of my comments in. Then I tried talking more (not present in this episode) but more and more people started parking... so I gave up.

Thanks for listening. If you like the show, feel free to support me.

๐ŸŽ™ #47 - I'm just trying to be "mediocre successful"

Abstract Development

It's the first episode after the school holidays... and yes, just got around to editing it, so it's WAY out of date.

First off I welcome ya'll back and touch on trying to do a little less technology. You can skip this section...

Now to the juicy bits. App and recent Android changes and moving onto making it cross-platform (as in... get it ready for iOS release)(finally). And as you might be aware, we've come quite a long way since this episode.

I touch on profile pop ups that we introduced on

Oh and Gluon... poor app.

Then I touch on my blogging habits in August and trying to stay offline a little more. You may also skip this section.
