Discourse has an API for updating single topics, adding messages, etc.

You can do a bunch of things with it, and it is kinda documented at https://docs.discourse.org/, though the general idea is to reverse engineer it.

I wanted to mention it to @trashHeap concerning Pellucidar Bestiary and @tim concerning TNG gifs..

I’m keeping notes at maiki scratches, because I can move post from there into their own threads, when and if I need to. I was thinking of making a little web widget to sit as a dedicated app/browser thing on my mobile homescreen. You can literally make a static HTML file with the API key in it, and include a form that posts to the site. That’s what I’m thinking for my case.

Aside: I should cross post Mastodon into a single thread! Generates an email/rss subscription option, while making it easier to manage and expand on!

I don’t know how ya’ll are getting your resources to share, but it would be cool to use greasemonkey or webextention to validate a topics, or use the data storage here in a new, abstracted way, and interact with it like that. Like, “highlight this object on the page, share to my topic at ‘TNG gifs’”. It’s pretty hackable!

A post was split to a new topic: I love pinboard!

… what is that …?? :slight_smile:

It is funny you posted here, as I have a note here telling me to revisit this. I have nothing to add at the moment, but I’d like to have a customizable bookmarklet snippet for these kinds of things.

talkgroup (as a verb)

<a class="bookmarklet" href="javascript:(function()%7Blocation.href%3D'https%3A%2F%2Ftalkgroup.xyz%2Fnew-topic%3Ftitle%3D'%2BencodeURIComponent(document.title)%2B'%26body%3D'%2BencodeURIComponent(location.href)%7D)()">talkgroup (as a verb)</a>

Hacked together a bookmarklet, basically works. A bit better than copying links, as this copies over the title element as post title, regardless of meta-data provided. :slight_smile:
