Hipster Pixel Product Reviews

I forgot to post about this here. I wrote several reviews over at Hipster Pixel go give them a read.

While everyone is switching to mesh networks, the Linksys WRT3200ACM router is still a great solution for appartments or smaller houses.

Next up, Apple removed magsafe when they introduced the new Macbook Pro in 2016. Griffin released a new breaksafe USB-C solution. Go read the review.

The new Macbook Pro’s only include USB-C ports and a headphone jack. A good dock is a must, the Belkin thunderbolt 3 dock is exactly what you need to connect all your peripherals.

Finally, even the latest Apple product, the HomePod, can benefit from accessories. This time it’s from Elago, the accessory maker behind the iPhone stand, the Watch stand, the Macbook Pro hanger and many more. The HomePod accessory lets you rest your speaker on the side. It’s a simple stand for people that have their HomePod’s higher up on a shelf and want to access the top buttons. Go read the review over at Hipster Pixel.

JSON Feed for Hugo

A new format syndaction format was introduced a couple of weeks ago called JSON Feed. It’s like RSS or Atom but it’s JSON instead of XML.

The 1.0 spec was released by Manton Reece and Brent Simmons. You can find all the required and available on the spec page.

Defining the spec in the easier part, now to make this the new standard it needs to be adopted by websites and feed readers. A feed reader was created by Maxime Vaillancourt. You can add your feed’s url to test it out.

I fully support this new format and hope it gets widely adopted. So here is how I added a JSON Feed to my Hugo blog.

First thing is to add the two lines in your config.toml file. This adds JSON as an Output Format for the homepage.

[outputs]
home = ["HTML", "RSS", "JSON"]

Then you simply need to add an index.json file at the root layouts folder.

You can check out my Github project.
