After seeing several people ask about a tool to download their toots, I’ve started building one.
Masto-DL will archive all your toots into individual json files to grep and analyze to your heart’s content.
After seeing several people ask about a tool to download their toots, I’ve started putting together a tool to do just that.
Masto-DL will archive all your toots into individual files (json right now, yaml to come, more as needed/requested).

It would be mind-bogglingly difficult to build an ethical ad platform that would be accepted by the Fedi community.
(original thread starts at https://tech.lgbt/@silvermoon82/109325175432086325)

Inspired by @TheBloggess, I have put together a simple WordPress plugin to fix dates for those with triskaidekaphobia.
Inspired by @TheBloggess, I have put together a simple WordPress plugin to fix dates for those with triskaidekaphobia. Right now it’s pretty trivial; as I refresh myself on WordPress development, I’ll add a few options, etc. In the meantime, all it does is replace the year after 2012 with “The Library” (see In the Library) and the date after the 12th with “12+1”.
