    host it:

  • bearclaw

    tiny static site generator w/ rss


    Every year I challenge myself in some new way, this year it is to push one project per week. You might recognize my static site generator [0] or my releaser for go [1] from previous posts as one of these weekly projects. If you want to join me in doing this, it's been a blast and I highly recommend it! Maybe we can chat on the bbs about it :)

    [0] - bearclaw tiny static generator -

    [1] - release builder for go -


    I'd love a few co-conspirators, or even some new friends for the bbs software or the bbs itself. A lofty nice-to-have goal is meeting a few other similarly motivated people to conspire with on a weekly basis. If that's you, drop me a line!


    I have about half of an admin interface endpoint pushed up, which I'd like to finish. I realized mid-commit that I'd lacked some other material in a previous commit, and in pushing it up, I ended up pushing half the admin feature. Stay tuned for that.

  • InfluxDB

    Collect and Analyze Billions of Data Points in Real Time. Manage all types of time series data in a single, purpose-built database. Run at any scale in any environment in the cloud, on-premises, or at the edge.

  • bbs-sshd

    sshd for bbs

    The largest forum (PTT) in Taiwan is also a BBS that you can access it with SSH.

    Of course, nowadays you can also access PTT through websocket or a web interface.


    A ssh server that knows who you are. $ ssh
