Did I mention that the kids love the PrintABloks?
After the Christmas presents were unwrapped, they went back to play with the old toys! :D
Every time I need to persist some simple data on a web app, I go through a dreaded “which database should I use?” process which – given I’m not building a global panopticon – is *always* overkill so I’ve decided to bite the bullet and write a very basic transparent (using Proxy) in-memory database for Site.js that flushes to JSON files on each write and is available on all your routes so you can use it without knowing you’re using a database. Working title: What Database? :)

If you're an avid open-source user who would love to help advance a project, there's a lot you can contribute whether you can program or not:
Provide constructive feedback, file bug reports, improve the documentation or help out maintaining the web & social media presence. Spread the word and recommend the projects you love to others (btw, I run Arch 😂)
Say "thank you" and tell developers to "keep up the great work". That form of contribution means a lot more than you could possibly imagine.
I’m very excited about this – it’s one of the first pieces of the bridge we’re building towards the peer web (it’s on the current web leg of the bridge – that’s where are now.)
Democratising the ability to develop/deploy personal sites is an important step. This is the first of a number of more specialised modules I’m considering releasing as I build the scaffolding of #Hypha. Hypha also will/does use Indie Web Server for its untrusted node (https://source.ind.ie/hypha/hypha).
Indie Web Server
If you want to run your own personal web server, this is as easy as it gets.
- Seamless TLS for development and production (without certificate warnings + A grade on SSL Labs in production).
- Command-line: use it to serve your static web site
- API: build your own dynamic web app on it in Node.js using Express, etc.
