Talking about creating useless software, last weekend I spent some time to create an RSS feed aggregator for The Verge. Could I not just use any RSS aggregator to do the same, yes, but that would deprive me of learning something new and writing useless code.

The site stores its links in Deno KV and uses expireIn to automatically remove links 7 days after their publish date. It applies :visited styling to the links to see which pages you have already visited. And on a return visit it shows the time of the new links in bold.

It’s pretty basic, but was fun to create, the source code is up on Github.

Oh yeah, the name, I didn’t want this thing to be too serious, of course it is related to Shook Ones, Pt. II by Mobb Deep.
