I have this vague sense that Notes, as opposed to blog posts, allow me to work more openly, rather than holding something back until it’s perfect. So in that spirit I’m publishing the Todo list I keep for Diplograph. It also shows off a new style for Task Lists.
A ton of backend work supports the book notes. There’s a new informal style for bibliographic entries: “Title by Author” instead of the not-quite-MLA format used elsewhere. There’s support for marking books as being part of a series, and a new content warning tagging system that I eventually want to extend to the notes themselves.
I wanted to keep track of who suggested what book to me in my The Book Pile, so I added a small mapping system that maps friends to anonymous identifiers. (If you’d like this mapping to instead map to your name or nym, let me know; it can handle that as well).
Also, there are some books that I’d rather not share here, but still want to track of or write notes on, so I’ve added a feature that removes parts of a page marked “private” before publishing. A small placeholder is left where content is omitted, like this:
Some private content has been omitted.
Finally, some type updates, all concerning Inter, the sans-serif used in figure captions and technical writing:
- Updated from version 3.15 to 3.19.
- Captions no longer have any negative tracking, and indeed now have some positive tracking. I think the type reads a little better, especially on smaller devices, when it has a little room.
- The subset font now includes the
Disambiguation without slashed zero, which I’ve been thinking about using in some places like recipes, where you want to be able to quickly glance at some text without needing to think whether you’re looking at an l or a 1.
