Changelog of this blog (meta)
I thought I will experiment and start a changelog of technical improvements for this website, excl. the posts themselves.
- added the newsletter generator that automates most part of preparing the Buttondown newsletter. It's not perfect, it's ugly, but it gets 90% done. Excerpts are extracted with graymatter (still used for reading Markdown files, could be replaced with Unified and react-excerpt). Date picker by react-datepicker.
- added stars to posts overview indicating the favorite posts of mine
- reorganized blog categories, inspired by the structure of Julia and Will
- added table of content with rehype-toc if a post requests so in the frontmatter
- added external link symbol: basic css here, symbol copied from Quora as SVG, SVG then serialized to CSS using this tool
