I guess I made a start to my feed reader. Copied across some basics from Scribbles... and it's up and running. Just need to fill in the blanks now πŸ€ͺ

If you're using shoutouts, and maybe you should if you don't, I have tweaked the way shoutouts are shown in the dashboard β€” inactive ones are now hidden by default and they have their own dedicated page. Just hit the "Inactive" button and Bob's Your Uncle.

Quick tweak to the dashboard on Tinylytics. It'll now page sites if you have more than 12. Why 12? No one knows. Change that setting on your user profile page to suit your needs.

"You might be running that blog, site or page that is no longer used β€” but you want to hold onto the data for archival purpose β€” look at those good times, or bad. Well, now you can."

β€” Introducing archived sites on the Tinylytics Update Blog

I was thinking of branching off Tinylytics into different apps, for example tracking app usage with events and whatever else I can think of. Although now I am thinking of just adding an optional "pro" mode, which is an add-on subscription, that unlocks a bunch of extras. Thoughts?

"...welcome to a small but important update to Gluon.

* Bug fixes and general improvements."

β€” Release 2024.2 for Gluon 😋

"There is now a new blog settings screen called "crossposting" that shows you all of your available feeds, which you can copy and add to Micro.blog, EchoFeed or any other services that digests RSS feeds and then cross posts them."

β€” Crossposting on the Scribbles Update Blog

Shipped last week, you now have the ability to create categories to your posts with a super simple and slick interface to get started. Categories allows you to add one category per post so that you separate out your content into... well... categories of course.

For my next project I will be creating a feed reader, based on the look and feel of Scribbles, that doesn’t make you scratch your eyes out and doesn’t make you feel bad for β€œomg, you didn’t fucking read this yet???” 😬😜

Happy to announce that Scribbles is now open for registration 🥳 Blog post announcing it properly as the week progresses.

Really couldn't be here without all the early adopters! Thank you so very much for all your feedback ✌️❀️
