Well, happy that the super duper basics of feed subscribing and background fetching works for Sublime Feed. Here is some super basic feed with Manton's and mine posts from the feeds ✌️ So much to do πŸ˜…

Just some minor tweaks to choosing a feed screen for Sublime Feed. It adds what type of feed it is and also does a better job of handling feeds that don't include the hostname (DF for example 😱) β€” not to mention missing titles (sigh). Anyway, good exercise. Looks nice.

I've got some basic feed fetching and subscribing logic done for Sublime Feed. Looks OK so far. It handles a feed URL and adds a subscription straight away. If it finds multiple feeds it will give you an option to choose it. I might add a "description" also if it exists. Now to grab posts... πŸ˜‹

If you're using Gluon and have push notifications enabled, please know that I made a mistake many years ago... so you have to go to the app and "re-activate" for your accounts please. If not, it'll be a little quiet until I figure out some migration... but that won't be today.

So happy to see all those amazing posts on the Scribbles Explore page β€” some are so very personal and open! Thank you all that write on Scribbles. It gives me hope that there are really great people and content out there.

And so it begins. Server set up and running. Deploys are working... now I just gotta actually start with some useful stuff πŸ˜‹

"Well, it's been a little while since I wrote an update here. The truth is, is that it's been moving pretty fast!"

β€” Updates and a changelog on the Scribbles Blog

Let's see if anyone notices 😋 #changelog

If you're using the awesome Pika blogging platform, and want to use Tinylytics for analytics (you really should), it's totally baked in now β€” including some others. Super exciting. Very thankful to Good Enough to do this in a great way! ✌️❀️

Made a few minor UI tweaks to Tinylytics. Now you can hide the Kudos and Uptime tabs on a site by site basis (subscribers only). Also tweaked the way the embed code and site id are shown when it's all working (less cluttered). Plus some other minor things that only I will notice.
