Hi! I’m Eli or Oat. I live and work in Maine with my family, and some animals. I’m reluctantly a software developer for work, I like to noodle around with , and bike whenever I can. I cook, clean, and read as many books as I can inbetween it all. Sometimes I blog a little, eli.li

Does anyone know of a solid pattern for supporting app/deep links on both iOS and Android?

The scenario is that I have an SPA and want detail pages from the SPA to open in the native iOS/Android apps when a link is shared to a device with the app installed.

If it isn't installed, take to the SPA/prompt to install.

I sorta accidentally made a an esoteric programming language. It is toy for exploring concatenative programming and the DOM and comes with its own weird little editor.

Meta thoughts on fedi and collapse thinking 

There is a group here on fedi that I find myself in orbit of, and interested in, but also wary of. They’re concerned with climate collapse but lean heavily in the direction of “longtermism.” At its face this modality of thought seems important, but it also seems to silently support accelerationism since much of longtermism traces the outline, even if it doesn’t say it out loud, of an argument about current people not mattering.

'Frog,' said Toad, 'let us eat one very last cookie, and then we will stop.'

Carmen Sandiego stands at the edge of the building, the sun setting behind her shoulders. The wind gently picking through her hair.

Across the roof, standing in silhouette, lit only by the setting sun at his face and the neon billboard behind, Tuxedo Mask shouts: “it seems we’re at a stalemate.”

Carmen laughs. She knows where Waldo is.

For anyone interested in noodling with ! I've isolated the excellent forth environment of Easy Forth for a bit more breathing room:

Start Trek the Next Generation 

You’d assume that Lt. Cmdr. Data used Haskell, but he actually used Forth to accomplish most daily tasks. Lore, however, only ever used a dialect of Brainfuck that compiled to JavaScript...a language long dead, preserved by the Q continuum for no real good reason other than to, one day, totally and completely fuck with Miles O’Brien.
