2021-02-06 - Retiring the Randomroad Gemini Directory

I've decided to retire the directory today. The excellent new medusae.space directory by Mjollna & Laƫrte is growing at quite a pace, and will easily outpace my efforts. Their DB backed approach also has some advantages for nesting, multi-category links, language info that will be nice as the Gemini space grows.

gemini://medusae.space

At the moment, the Gemini space is quite small, and directories can be quite complete, so I'd prefer not to maintain something that will have a very large overlap with a superior solution.

I'll leave gemini://directory.randomroad.net up for 3 months, until the end of April. The source repo will stay beyond that, in case it warrants revisiting in future.This has been a short but fun project. Found a lot of interesting things to read over the last couple of months.

Cheers!
