Updates December 2020

Ahoy Human!

It's Chirstmas and I've slept for 18 hours now.....

Anyway,

Back to what we are here for, Updates (cause I'm some celebrity with a huge
following waiting for me to post this), I won't start with TillWhen this time,
people are already bored of it so I'll add it to the last.

Language Updates

Most people already understand that I've been trying to move out of the web dev
scene for a while and while I did use Javascript for the desktop apps while
hating on electron (hyprocrite much!?) but recently I've started using Fyne with
Golang to build app and the latest example of this is the
Spotify Lite App
about which you can read
here.

Project Updates

New / Still Planning

Pfer

Another app that i'll be building but this is going to be a web app since I need
available on all platforms and I don't have the patience to wait for Apple to
approve everything so we're going with web app for this one. This is a simple
playlist sync and transfer app for Spotify Playlists.

I'm not sure about you guys but I have this thing were I add everything from my
Saved Library to a Playlist so I can share that playlist around and it's a good
amount of work if you don't use the desktop app and I wouldn't want to download
100MB app , login, sync playlist with saved songs, delete app and repeat
whenever I want to do this sync.

Pfer is basically going to be a simple web-app for that purpose, there's not
link for you to visit right now, I'm still deciding on how I'll be making it, I
want to build something serverless and drop the whole thing on Vercel's servers,
though the 10 second action timeout might create a block in certain cases and
thus I'm still thinking on how I'll be splitting the actions.

Existing Ones

Spotify Lite

TillWhen

Here's our favorite one! So TillWhen's slack app is being tested by real people
on the beta instance right now and you can do that as well, you can sign up on
https://beta.tillwhen.barelyhuman.dev and try out the slack integration from
Profile > Integrations > Add to Slack. Remember it's a beta instance, I might
clear the database, or i break the god damn server if I wish to when ever I want
so don't use it to save time logs that matter to you.

Oh, and make sure you report those issues on
https://github.com/barelyhuman/tillwhen-issues/issues , and then I can move onto
fixing them.

I'm sad though that no one's donated yet... I'm kidding, though Its good
TillWhen has 140 users right now, which is good considering I only promoted it
on ProductHunt and maybe , just maybe on HackerNews and LinkedIn.

Sleep and Work Updates

It's all going good, the works going great, I've improved my sleep cycle quite a
bit with the solution I wrote a few posts back, you can find it
here](/posts/12102020-The-Fight-with-Ones-brain---My-Sleep-Solution.html) , No
I'm still not on any social websites though my self hosted Email Server idea
didn't really go well, though I might use SourceHut's Email Lists , modify it a
bit but I'm still not sure about it.

As for repositories, I've started mirroring repositories on Gitlab and bitbucket
for most repos that I have or care about, bitbucket one's are still on private
though I like the overall interface of bitbucket but the runners on Github and
Gitlab are more functional in my opinion so it's a little hard for me to just
jump out of them immediately.

That's about it for now.

Adios!
