A wise man once said that nothing really dies, it just comes back in a new form. Then he died.

Stand by for reincarnation.

Comments Powered by GitHub

After seeing this article the other morning about replacing the Disqus comments on a blog powered by a static site generator (like this one) with comments backed by a GitHub issue and some front-end JavaScript to load and display them, I thought it would be fun to implement something similar. First I only built the code for displaying comments, similar to the aforementioned article, but I decided to take it one step further by allowing users to submit comments directly from my site.

The Pretty Good Minor Update

It’s been about six months since the last time I redesigned the site, and while I didn’t want to redesign it yet again, I felt it could use a little update to make sure everything’s still good.

Type: A FOSS clone of typing.io

on in misc • 8 min read

TL;DR: I made an awesome FOSS clone of typing.io that you can check out at type.shadowfacts.net and the source of which you can see here.

I’ve used typing.io on and off for almost a year now, usually when I’m bored and have nothing else to do. Unfortunately, I recently completed the Java file, the C++ file, and the JavaScript file (that last one took too much time, jQuery has weird coding formatting standards, IMO) meaning I’ve completed pretty much everything that interests me. Now if you want to upload your own code to type, you have to pay $9.99 a month, which, frankly, is ridiculous. $10 a month to be able to upload code to a website only to have more than the 17 default files (one for each langauge) when I could build my own clone.
