marxists.org looks awful

This page summarizes the projects mentioned and recommended in the original post on /r/TheDeprogram

Our great sponsors
  • InfluxDB - Power Real-Time Data Analytics at Scale
  • WorkOS - The modern API for authentication & user identity.
  • Onboard AI - ChatGPT with full context of any GitHub repo.
  • Hugo

    The world’s fastest framework for building websites.

    Oh I also thought about creating marxist.org from plain text files using a markup language like markdown or org-mode with a static site generator like hugo. Of course managed with git. One could then easily change the layout at any time or offer several.

  • lua-filters

    A collection of lua filters for pandoc

    The programming challenge I think would be to write a converter from marxist.org html to markdown or org-mode. I was thinking of pandoc with a lua filter (see also) for marxist.org html unfortunately my lua is terrible.

  • InfluxDB

    Power Real-Time Data Analytics at Scale. Get real-time insights from all types of time series data with InfluxDB. Ingest, query, and analyze billions of data points in real-time with unbounded cardinality.

  • pandoc

    Universal markup converter

    The programming challenge I think would be to write a converter from marxist.org html to markdown or org-mode. I was thinking of pandoc with a lua filter (see also) for marxist.org html unfortunately my lua is terrible.

  • essays

    A few essays on communism

    Github has more users so maybe more people joining (essays is there for example) but it's also kind of strange to manage a communist project on a Micro$oft platform, on the other hand we already use reddit. Sobit I would be (hypocritically) for github.

  • marxists.org-UserCSS

    A more readable Marxists.org. Features support for dark mode. Requires the OpenStyles/Stylus extension for Firefox/Chrome.

    The closest thing to this I've seen so far is a browser plug-in that overrides marxists.org's css: https://github.com/ArkansasWorker/marxists.org-UserCSS

  • WorkOS

    The modern API for authentication & user identity. The APIs are flexible and easy-to-use, supporting authentication, user identity, and complex enterprise features like SSO and SCIM provisioning.
