Litsub is an email-based community of writers, editors, readers, and literary folks. Started in 2019, litsub.com is a place for people to share in their love of writing.
I maintain an installation of Mailman to host my own mailing list and wanted to share the platform for other writers. I also created the
email@example.com mailing list as a community of writers to talk about our craft.
Writing and Publishing Utilities
To integrate with Whiskey and with my writing workflow, I’ve created various tools to support my online writing and publishing.
pd — Print draft
pd has had a greater impact on my writing than any other tool I’ve created. It uses
pandoc and a
latex template to generate a well formatted document and then sends it to your printer all from the command line or Vim. Now you have a hard copy draft that you can mark up. Writing and editing in separate tools and phases helps me focus on doing one at a time.
Built to integrate my static sites into Litsub,
fmmss is a Flask app running a
POST API to handle subscribing to a Mailman 3 list. Designed to attach to an existing
docker-mailman network, this app will take requests to subscribe or unsubscribe users via the Python
Older Projects and Code
- I wrote a plugin for python-markdown called
mdx_poeticas I expanded my writing into poetry and desired a particular format for poetry on this site. (I don’t use this anymore since I now use
pandocfilters to do this instead.)
diceware, a python script which generates passphrases using EFF’s wordlist. Passphrases are highly secure and highly memorable passwords.
