Built a self-hosted, real-time, analytics dashboard with support for custom events and privacy preserving tracking. If you're looking for simple analytics software for a small–medium traffic website, _Stats could be the right fit for you.
Experimenting with something today– A live window of sorts into my workspace as the background of the homepage, let me know what you think or say hi on twitter. 👋
If you're curious how it works: I'm using a programmable chip (esp32) with a camera module that sends images to a Go microservice that handles sending the feed to this website. The front-end fades-in new frames as they are received to re-create the live feed.
Hoping to point it at my workspace every now and then, but mostly keep it pointed at something a little more lively like a 3D printer.
Experimenting with using perlin-noise to procedurally generate a 2D map to learn about game engines. This was on Phaser, but I've been diving into SDL and OpenGL to make a C++ game engine for a top down game like Rim World.
I had the opportunity to see the Convergence Station exhibit by Meow Wolf, it’s a four-story, immersive exhibit that brings to life four alien worlds. The sheer scale and creativity is breath taking, you could spend a whole day walking around and you’d still miss things. I highly recommend a visit, it's an experience to remember!
Made a graphical version of my personal logger. I've been using the CLI version for about two years, but it's a lot nicer with the ability to incorporate visualizations.
I feel for the people of my home country. Sri Lanka is going through an unprecedented economic and humanitarian crisis at the moment and we must do what we can to support the most vulnerable and speak up for meaningful change. I'm proud of my people standing up for change, my heart is with them all.
Added a few new features and cleaned up some of the content to make it easier for me to publish more frequently and build up a sustainable, inter-connected knowledgebase of sorts.
