There is a mindset that was more common in the recent past than it is today among developers. We used to build project-specific tools to help our development workflow. These days a lot of development is mostly plumbing libraries and creating your own tools is a forgotten art.
The next steps for Patchfox are about creating a ton of methods to be exposed by the RPC servers.
Patchfox uses JSON-RPC to talk to itself. A good example is shutting down the server. To start a server, the user just runs the cli with the command server start (in the future this will be a patchfox binary/shim):
Now, how to stop it? The server responds to SIGTERM so you could use kill to do it, or press CTRL+C, but this is not user friendly.
This is the old XML-RPC validation site from scripting.com. It basically calls a series of example RPC methods on your server expecting some known responses. All of them are related to getting U.S. State names.
I’ve implemented those methods just for kicks and passed validation.
For example, this calls examples.getStateName(23) which maps in the pre-defined responses to Minnesota.
The way I implemented adding methods to the server is by having an api/ folder.
Patchfox is made of water, it changes shape depending on the circumstances.
It is time for it to adopt a new shape.
I was not really expecting this but a new from scratch rewrite has begun yesterday. In this post I’ll outline why I’m doing it and where I want it to go.
It would probably be better to call this client by a different name, but I know that if I abandon the Patchfox name it will simply vanish from memory as the project never had the objective of fostering a community of contributors that could take it over.

The community group may draft specifications that could go on to be standardized in W3C working groups.

I follow an enormous number of people (and an enormous number of large pubs), and I see a rate of substantially less than one post per minute.
I noticed you since followed @MetaLife Planet 1: %i4G. Do you now see a lot of MetaLife content? I do now, as I follow you and have 3 hops set.

And hello to any MetaLife users reading this; although I don’t suppose there is any bidirectional link currently.
Podcast - Walter Isaacson: History of Social Media A couple months ago before Elon Musk took over twitter I was interviewed for Walter Isaacson’s Trailblazers podcast to talk about social media. It’s always hard to tell how much of these interviews will be used. Sometimes you talk for hours and then they only use a soundbite. For example they sent a film crew to my house for a full day of interviews for what became part of Rise of the Billionaires but i’m not sure if i was in it at all… Or all of our experience with the Forbes article, some folks spent a lot of time talking to the journalist without seeming to have much effect on the arc of the story.
