This is a development instance of xesite. Things here are probably unfinished or in drafting. Don't take anything here super seriously. If you want to share this to an online aggregator, please don't. Drafts are not finalized yet for a reason. Please don't be the reason I need to implement more advanced security than just obscurity.

RSS/Atom Feeds Fixed and Announcing my Flight Journal

Read time in minutes: 3

I have released version 2.0.1 of this site's code. With it I have fixed the RSS and Atom feed generation. For now I have had to sacrifice the post content being in the feed, but I will bring it back as soon as possible.

Thanks to W3Schools for having a minimal example of an RSS feed and this Flickr image for expanding it so I can have the post dates be included too.

Flight Journal

I have created a Gemini protocol server at gemini:// Gemini is an exploration of the space between Gopher and HTTP. Right now my site doesn't have much on it, but I have added its feed to my feeds page.

Please note that the content on this Gemini site is going to be of a much more personal nature compared to the more professional kind of content I put on this blog. Please keep this in mind before casting judgement or making any kind of conclusions about me.

If you don't have a Gemini client installed, you can view the site content here. I plan to make a HTTP frontend to this site once I get Maj up and functional.


I have created a Gemini client and server framework for Rust programs called Maj. Right now it includes the following features:

  • Synchronous client
  • Asynchronous server framework
  • Gemini response parser
  • text/gemini parser

Additionally, I have a few projects in progress for the Maj ecosystem:

  • majc - an interactive curses client for Gemini
  • majd - An advanced reverse proxy and Lua handler daemon for people running Gemini servers
  • majsite - A simple example of the maj server framework in action

I will write more about this in the future when I have more than just this little preview of what is to come implemented. However, here's a screenshot of majc rendering my flight journal:
