ETOOBUSY 🚀 minimal blogging for the impatient
I’m thinking on an API for collecting a few data.
I’d like to collect some data about things I do, from sports to getting good habits, and so far I used a few apps like Habitica.
But… this does not really thrill me from a privacy standpoint. Which meant that I eventually settled on Loop Habit Tracker, because it only works locally.
But… I’d really like to use a web application, because who needs all those stinkin’ apps? Only… self-hosted.
I’m sort of bouncing like a flipper ball here. On the one hand, I’d go to a solution like Prometheus – at the end of the day, we’re collecting metrics here, right? Yet, it seems overkill for collecting data of one or two people.
In pure wheel-reinventing spirit, then, I’ll probably settle for doing it myself and come out with some half-baked solution that will fail me at some time. Optimism time!
We’ll see where it takes me, in the meantime stay safe!
