This is the current list of things I'm planning on working on for Recen.se:

Recense? Why the weird name?

Remember this quote?

There are only two hard things in Computer Science: cache invalidation and naming things.
-- Phil Karlton

Well, I made sure I didn't do any caching for this, but naming I couldn't avoid. And all the "normal" names were taken, so here we are.

Does this website track me?

Absolutely not. The amount of Javascript this website has is very minimal and unobfuscated, so you can read it yourself. The only cookie it stores is for authentication (login/logout). You can even opt out of providing an email account, so you can remain 100% anoymous.

Is this project open source?

Not right now. Maintaining an open source project is a lot of work, and I'm reluctant to open source this project just because of that.

I already do that kind of work as my day job (community management, design discussions, code reviews, etc), and I don't want to keep doing the same thing when I go home. Maybe some day, though.

Why the spartan look?

I'm fed up with pages that take ages to load. This is my attempt at fighting that trend.

What's the tech stack behind this?

It's a bunch of Rust code, written in the most straightforward way possible. Nothing fancy, really.
