Looks like markdown + templates + functions.



Ya'll, something real exciting happened today.
has released one of its first open source projects, and it's something near and dear to my heart: Markdoc, our documentation tooling!! 🎉

If you too would like world-class docs, take a peep!


I'm super excited about Polars! This has the potential to completely change the way I work.

Profiles and posts on Mastodon and the Fediverse have public versions you can share with people who aren't on the Fediverse.

To see the public version of a profile, click on the profile picture. This will open the public version of the profile in a new tab.

To see the public version of a post, click on the datestamp below the post. This will open the public version of the post in a new tab.

These "public pages" are handy for sharing with friends, because they don't require logging in to see them.

Public pages are also very useful for something else:

If you paste the URL address of a public page into the search box on Mastodon, and then search for it, the post or profile will appear within your server. This is handy if you cannot find a post or person by searching, but you know they exist on another server.

Searching for a URL like this forces your server to "notice" the profile or post.

It also works with URLs from PeerTube, PixelFed etc.

The degree to which Amazon now pushes audiobooks on you is just ridiculous. May every megacorporation collapse under the weight of its acquisitions.

Gah! This is making me rethink my militant opposition to Go... 😩 It looks so good. charmbracelet/bubbletea: A powerful little TUI framework 🏗

I started writing the first #SpaceTalkTuesday thread about planetary habitability, but quickly realized you all need some background on how we *find* planets first!

So sorry to everyone who voted for habitability, but we’re doing HOW TO FIND AN EXOPLANET 🔭 today!

I promise this will make the habitability thread next week make even more sense (1/)

I came to #SponsorBlock to get rid of sponsored messages, I became an obsolute fan for the crowd-sourced video annotations: automatically skip video intros or the time before a conference starts, go to the essential point, etc 😍 See the addon settings to enable those features

Need some fedi folks recommendations. I'm looking to get a new laptop, old one goes back to the company when I leave.

Only need it for web browsing, watching Twitch, etc. Nothing super powerful.

Was looking at #pine64 Pinebook Pro, but those aren't expected in anytime soon.

I know about #systemd76 and #librem but they start at like $1k and are waaaaay more than I need.

Anyone have some good, relatively inexpensive (few hundred US dollars), basic laptops they'd recommend? Obviously #linux powered.

me searching for that post a year later in the hopes of referencing it: "oh. oh no. no no no"

Mastodon has a verification mechanism, though it looks different from Twitter's. We do not ask for your documents. Instead, if you have a website that you are known by, you can verify that you are the owner of that website.

Link to your Mastodon profile from the website, either through a visible link, or through a <link> tag in the head of the document, with a rel=me attribute, and link back to that page from your Mastodon profile. It should then get a green checkmark, like @Mastodon.
