Git powered wikis improved: My bit

I accidentally came across the blog-post Git-powered wikis improved - GitHub. And this particular paragraph caught my eye:

The new editor has the capability to support every markup language that GitHub Wikis support. If you're a fan of Markdown, Textile, pod or RDoc, the function bar buttons (e.g. bold, italic, underline, etc.) will now work. We've even written brand new inline help for many of GitHub Wiki's supported markup languages.

The language definitions the editor uses are JSON-based and easy to edit. If you'd like us to support a markup language that we don't currently support, Gollum, GitHub's wiki software, is entirely open source – fork our code and send us a pull request with changes that support your choice language.

I sent a quick patch for org-mode in the function bar, and it has been accepted. :)

If not anything more, I hope, at least a couple of curious people will explore org-mode and find it useful.

CHAGANTI 635888 Emacs

Puneeth Chaganti, hereby agrees as follows:

Developer hereby agrees to assign and does hereby assign to FSF Developer's copyright in changes and/or enhancements to the suite of programs known as GNU EMACS, including any accompanying documentation files and supporting files as well as the actual program code.

Yay! I can now write code, that can go into Org-mode and Emacs! I'm looking forward to this!

Changes to Blog

Well, as you can see, I've changed my blog a bit. I had been trying to make it gel well with org-mode and looking for ways to allow me to share arbit stuff with separate feeds for tags, separate pages with independent feeds, etc.

I finally got around to tweaking the code of reprise to be able to do this. There are still a few things I would like to change, but I'll make the changes gradually. The looks are also straight from uddegal's [[reprise, with a few tiny tweaks. I hope it is alright to be using it. I really liked the theme.

Every tag now has a separate feed. /tags/emacs.atom will give you the feed of emacs for instance. Also, I plan to have a couple of more pages, one for all the interesting links I come across and another for interesting quotes. Both of these pages, have their own feeds too (quotes.atom and links.atom).

In the spirit of minimalism, I got rid of comments. I've been looking for ways of having comments without all the javascript cruft from disqus, but I didn't find any satisfactory way to do this. So, the site will have no comments. You can write to me, in case you've something to say to me.
