New keycaps

Recently I ordered new keycaps for my WASD keyboard via massdrop (if you want to join, please use this link. I replaced some of the keys and I’m very happy with the result. I didn’t get the keycaps in ISO layout, so I can’t switch all the keys, but I like the touch of color. The end goal is still the Deep Field keycaps by primecap artisans though.

Using tt-rss FeedIron plugin to clean up posts

I read a lot of RSS feeds with tt-rss (after the death of Google Reader a couple years ago), but not all pages provide a RSS feed for their articles. And even if they do, the feed sometimes is a mess because the content is not really tailored to the feed. Luckily there is a plugin for tt-rss called “FeedIron” which takes care of this and allows heavy customization of the article, for example

  • clean up of HTML content (getting rid of unnecessary elements in the feed, like comments, social sharing button, extended author information)
  • replacing the article with original content from the page
  • modification of the content with regex

I do use this plugin to get full articles from arstechnica in my feed. Unfortunately, after replacing the original article in the feed with the multi-page content (get the configuration for that here) from the original page, the images are broken because ars uses javascript to put images into the article. To fix this, I modified the configuration for the page:

"arstechnica.com": {
    "type": "xpath",
    "multipage": {
        "xpath": "span[@class='numbers']/a",
        "append": true,
        "recursive": true
    },
    "xpath": [
        "section[@class='article-guts']"
    ],
    "cleanup": [
        "aside",
        "div[@class='article-expander']",
        "nav"
    ],
    "modify": [{
        "type": "regex",
        "pattern": "(data-thumb="(.+?)".*?data-src="(.+?)".*?>)",
        "replace": "><a href="$2"><img src="$1" /></a>"
    }]
}

The interesting part here is the modify section:

"modify": [{
    "type": "regex",
    "pattern": "(data-thumb="(.+?)".*?data-src="(.+?)".*?>)",
    "replace": "><a href="$2"><img src="$1" /></a>"
}]

The configuration has a regex pattern which matches on the images, grabs the URLs to the thumbnail and the original image and replaces the javascripty stuff with a regular HTML link and image. This way when I read the feed with TTRSS-Reader, my android client of choice for tt-rss I do see the images even without javascript.

Die Fotos gibt es natürlich bei Flickr. Obwohl ich neulich kurz drüber nachgedacht habe, ob ich den Account zumachen und zu Google Fotos wechseln sollte. Ich könnte das ganze natürlich auch auf meiner eigenen Nextcloud Instanz hosten… naja, erstmal bleibe ich bei Flickr.
