Shortlog - a log of everyday things



I spent 7 hours converting every single one of my blog entries to the markdown variant I described a while back. Now they're all pretty!

At some point, I think I should throw all the entries in my AeroFS folder. Then I could write them locally even if I don't have internet and they'd automagically sync up when I'm connected again.

On the topic of parsing: I found this video from PyCon 2012 interesting. The results were basically what I had concluded when trying to parse dokuwiki - lots of interesting grammars (like wiki markups!) are context-sensitive, for which you need either lots of lookahead assertions (ugly) or PEGs (fairly young, not widely supported, and less performant). I have some more references for building a better dokuwiki parser now, though, if I wanted to make one true to the original syntax.
