    Project mention: Different Levels of Project Documentation | | 2023-12-30

    Often used for cases where a project exposes a REST or other type of API service. Open API is a popular method of documenting such API services. It can also be used along side tools such as Swagger Codegen to produce boilerplate code for API interaction / testing purposes. There may also be support files for popular API testing tools such as Postman or Insomnia. This makes it easier at a glance to see what data is coming back from a call so the user knows how to handle parsing the data.

    Project mention: Don't Use Discord as a Forum | | 2023-09-13

    > I'm a big fan of

    TIL to what shit Netgate moved pfSense forums to. I'm glad you are fine with it, but not only my FullHD monitor is not a smartphone, so I don't need 400% fonts on everything (and post dates on the faaaaar right clearly shows nobody ever even used the forum) and most importantly - search doesn't work. It's not like the previous forum had a good search, but at least it worked.

    Bonus point: try to Ctrl+mousewheel on any NodeBB (including the official one).

    Project mention: Did BI get hacked or did it just go down? | /r/BlueIris | 2023-07-08

    I'd have to circle back and look again because it's been a few years. I was able to get Zoneminder to do 95% of what I wanted even if it felt a bit clunky. Shinobi was an up-and-comer last time I was looking around, but I remember having some frustrations and decided to stick with BI.

    Project mention: Nue: A React/Vue/Vite/Astro Alternative | | 2023-09-14

    Have you looked at by any chance?

    I've been quite enjoying keystone + lit (or react if required) of late and at the very least it feels like solid prior art towards MVC stuff.

    Also for server side.

    (I'm not saying "use these" even if I quite enjoy using them myself, but they're my reference points for comparison here)

    Doesn't that mean that developers were profiting from a free API before? That may be fair play, but doesn't it raise ethical concerns in terms of business practices? (This guy is the GOAT of that, got rich off SEC public data)
