CLI for Readlist

I maintain the readlist in a CouchDB database. Each feed (channel) is a document in that database. I use the file’s name as the primary key i.e “_id”. For example, “sri-lankas-economic-crisis.json” is the key to the Sri Lankan Economic Crisis reading list. It’s a single document. It has many feed items like any JSONFeed. The first few were easy to create and manage. But then I needed something simple to manage this if I was going to be serious about using it.

GeoJSON and WordPress

I have been using maps inside WordPress using Maps Maker Pro. You can see all my major road trips were mapped using that. I like it so much that I paid for it. But recently, I have been thinking about moving map content outside WordPress and maybe using WordPress only to display. Then came the question of how and where to store GIS content.
