I understand why macOS Safari wants to sandbox browser extensions but please add a search option for safari extension instead of a 30 page list… @instapaper do you have a safari extension?

 

Everyone has JavaScript, right?

This is helpful every two months or so.

 

The magic of the web is that it’s a multiverse. When build progressively, information and services are usable even though certain technologies, such as autoplay and JavaScript, are disabled. My phone battery thanks all considerate developers!

 

The replacement battery for my iPhone 6s lasts around 33% as long as the original before it also now shuts down due to peak capacity problems.

Carbon 0.3

It seems today is 0.3 day, as I'm also releasing Carbon 0.3, my hackable performant semi-static blogging system.

This release mainly deals with technical debt as I first started this project 6 years ago as a playground for figuring out how a CMS is written from the ground up. This means there are out of date requirements, references to a Windows platform with Powershell and other such bad examples.

That said the codebase isn't in a terrible state although it will have to change significantly before it's production ready. If you know a bit of PHP then after a short study it can be customised to your needs quite easily.

So, if you're interested you can use it and quickly whip together a documentation or simple blog using only markdown files. It will produce a feed and there's even a half baked cli application and static site generation that I have to review before I can recommend it in honest.

Have fun hacking!

 

Fresh Cookies 0.3

I've released Fresh Cookies 0.3, my browser extension for limiting the lifetime of browser cookies to a maximum of 15 days.

It is now a web extension and can be manually installed in Firefox (it also works in Chrome). I'm looking for feedback before I'm ready to submit it any extension directories.

 

‎Tofu Authenticator on the App Store

Used this a day but already liking this open source, no account, strong privacy 2fa app with filter bar. 

 

I wish would add decent import / export options so I could switch to it with confidence, as their writing experience really is top notch.
