About cat aescling

Hello! I am the syscatmin for the social networking instance GlitchCat, and a developer for its codebase, Kibicat Mastodon, a fork of Mastodon: Glitch Edition being developed as community software. (I like to call the latter meowstodev). I am opening this Patreon to cover GlitchCat's domain name and hosting costs, as well as for generally supporting my development work on its codebase. (And while I am trying not to work on code for upstream Mastodon or Glitch Edition, but I have already gotten a simple PR merged into the former, and it is not unfeasible that I would attempt more upstream PRs in the future.)

In the past I was working on an httpd written in execline (think shell script, but much more verbose, and entirely continuation based). Development got put on hold when I ran into strange regex bugs in an execline update; on resuming development it could likely explode into further software, and perhaps a small library alongside that, to replace infrastructure I use to perform actual networking. My hope in this all this work was to show that You Can Write Useful Programs Too. (Perhaps using an obscure language to demonstrate this was a bad choice…)

$16.39 of $36 per month
This would fully fund GlitchCat hosting!
