digestsforthought is a small program that uses the Twitter API to select a random tweet from the last 50 tweets for a few accounts, and then mails a digest using SparkPost’s Transmissions API.
I started the project back in 2017 to scratch multiple itches. I wanted a way to keep up with some specific Twitter accounts. But I also wanted to learn:
Python AWS Lambda AWS CloudFormation Twitter API I had done a little Python before, but I had not used the other technologies.
The following are some International Domain Names that I’ve used for testing mail clients or other mail processing systems in the past:
Punycode UTF-8 xn--ss-2ia1b.phekda.org ðssæ.phekda.org xn--aa-yia.phekda.org aåa.phekda.org
File::ExtAttr 1.06, mab2ldif I released File::ExtAttr 1.06 to fix building on Mac OS X. File::ExtAttr provides an interface to extended file attributes (meta-data) that’s consistent across Linux, Mac OS X, *BSD, Solaris.
I also released mab2ldif, which takes a Mork-format address book (e.g.: as used by Thunderbird) and converts it into an LDIF file. You can import the LDIF file into Thunderbird. I wrote this to recover my old Thunderbird address book from an old computer that died.
postfix config-o-rama I spent a lot of today finally setting up e-mail for my domain, phekda.org. My goals were:
Set up an SMTP SUBMIT server (running on port 587), so that I can send mail from @phekda.org addresses from anywhere. Require mail to be submitted over TLS. Authenticate the client by requiring that the client presents a certificate issued by my private certificate authority (CA). Since I’m only going to issue certificates to people/machines I trust, possession of a certificate is implicit authentication.
