development diary


Almost done with eventual gram, so that's good i suppose. Have been thinking a lot about ssb running in browsers, and I kind of realized that the only thing that makes ssb a cool radical p2p project™ is that you have all the data on your computer. That's what makes it independent from a centralized server -- there is not one place where the data is. So maybe electron is not so bad. It does what is needed — unlimited local storage with a web-based UI.

If you go the in-browser route of using indexedDB as basically a local cache, you lose independence from servers, and you basically have something like firebase or rxdb.

Also added more photos (postcards) to my website. I noticed that my plugin, ssb-tags, doesn't work the first time you use it, so need to figure that out.

Found some great writing yesterday
