This week has been about Google tracking, Rust macros, WebAssembly search engines, CSS Grids and Obsidian.


A tool to interactively write shell pipelines.


An offline-first knowledge base tool on top of a folder of Markdown files.

I've been using this tool for the last few months and although it's still not a mature tool it has become my main tool to manage my knowledge base both at home and at work.

That said, I couldn't use it without a few plugins to enhance it:

  • Dataview, to query the knowledge base and display results as tables or lists.
  • Mind Map, to display a mind map out of a Markdown structure.
  • Sliding Panes, to stack open panes on the side.
  • Minimal Settings, to tweak the interface to be less noisy.
  • Metatable, to display the full frontmatter.
