I can now post inline and am using Emanuil Rusev's Parsedown & ParsedownExtra libraries for PHP so that posts can be written in Markdown Extra. I mainly use Extra for footnotes and applying classes to images (width and alignment) so it is good to be able to retain that functionality.
I was reading Matthew Lang's post about moving back from micro.blog to his own domain using his own custom CMS and it inspired me to do some more work on mine. I know, I know!
Next up will be redoing the file uploads for images, both live & daily RSS feeds, and inline editing.# I've improved posting and how posts are referenced. The mechanism to create the live RSS feed is also working so I now need to hook it in when a new post is created.
I'm using Font Awesome in place of WordPress' dashicons but the script to load them only runs when I'm logged in so as not to impede page performance for a normal visitor.
Almost there for what I would consider a minimum viable product.
@colinwalker that feeling is my poison and my medicine

Thanks Joe, but this is on the old WordPress site where everything is okay. I was just doing send tests from my new blog. I don't have an endpoint there yet.
Oops. You're welcome. ?
#Happy Friday! Almost made it through the first work-week of 2021 and what a week it's been. Work itself has been reasonably quiet as people are either still on leave or just feeling their way back in after the holiday period but the big wide world continues to be that crazy mess we've seen so much of in the last 12 months or so. On a personal note this has been an incredibly productive week as far as the blog is concerned. To have gone from just starting to take it seriously again on the 3rd, when all I had was a way of displaying existing posts, to a fully working engine and to actually go live in just three days is quite an accomplishment. Not to blow my own trumpet or anything. A lot of the hard work was already done with building the layer on top of WordPress, I mainly just had to translate it to a standalone environment. I deliberately wanted it to look the same and so based the theme on my custom WordPress theme, this allowed me to create the dark mode CSS in just a few minutes with copy/paste and a few changes and additions. I've gone one step further on the new blog: I've added the ability to delete comments inline just in case the honeypots aren't effective. There is no admin page so I want it is as quick and easy as possible to remove unwanted, abusive, offensive or spam comments. I suppose, in a way, the blog itself is the admin page seeing as I can edit or delete anything.
