And there it is: Another rotation of this feed.
(Yeah, 100 lines is quite low.)
I bet you guys already implemented retrieving archived feeds! :-)
@movq you are going to have, pretty soon, hundreds upon hundreds of tiny files laying around! I don’t think Yarn fetches archived files, but keep archives of old twts. That, and the cache should work.
@fastidious Yes, it’s too low. I guess I’ll still keep it that way for a little while longer, just to make sure that the code works as expected. :-) Maybe some new corner cases show up. But eventually, I’ll increase the threshold.
I see your feed has a
prev on the header, but older feeds do not have a
next. If browsing to older feeds is to be possible, how does one handles the browsing from the oldest, to the next, to the next, and so on? If I am browsing
twtxt-old_2021-12-23_f6y65bq.txt, how do I know which is the next newer (but not the newest)?
@fastidious You don’t. A
next field was discussed in the original draft, but then it was discarded. It’s easier to implement without it and you don’t really need it for automated feed retrieval. For manual retrieval, though, it would have been helpful.
It was probably discussed in the pull request – or in some twtxt thread, which I can’t find anymore. 🥴
@movq Of course I did! Not. :-/
