It's even worse than it appears.

  • I was emailing with Anil Dash about Glitch. Learned a few things.#
    • The GitHub integration is still early. The problem is that when you update from a repo, it wipes out all the other files in the project. The data and settings. But that's going to be fixed, he says, and when it is I will be able to connect to a project through the GitHub version. #
    • Also good to know is that you can change which files cause the app to restart by adding a watch.json file to the project. #
  • Also my test server,, is still running. A reminder that my stack (still) works there. Node is a good platform. #
  • If the Glitch folk can answer the other questions I asked here in April, the thread on GitHub is a good place to go. #

You know those obnoxious sites that pop up dialogs when they think you're about to leave, asking you to subscribe to their email newsletter? Well that won't do for Scripting News readers who are a discerning lot, very loyal, but that wouldn't last long if I did rude stuff like that. So here I am at the bottom of the page quietly encouraging you to sign up for the nightly email. It's got everything from the previous day on Scripting, plus the contents of the linkblog and who knows what else we'll get in there. People really love it. I wish I had done it sooner. And every email has an unsub link so if you want to get out, you can, easily -- no questions asked, and no follow-ups. Go ahead and do it, you won't be sorry! :-)
