The dog food is starting to get fancy, but part of it is somewhat of a side path. See, it’s a little weird maintaining a neighborhood site for a neighborhood 1600 miles away, so I’m attempting to automate as much of it as possible, some of which is pretty site-specific. But it now makes entries based on Google Calendar ical files, so I don’t have to duplicate effort there (though in hindsight it should probably go the other direction). It builds feeds from OPML files since a lot of what the site has always done is just signal-boost other sites’ info.
I need to do a good bit of cleanup to standardize the JSON that’s produced, but I have kind of a toy JS client that can process them, more or less.
Next, I need to either move this site over to it, or otherwise figure out why it keeps resurrecting a year-old front page.
