I made a thing that lets me post Dungeon Crawl Stone Soup game logs to my website!

It has… kind of a long story, actually. So back in 2013 when I was a huge fan of App.net, I wanted to make an App.net client that would be “like Battlelog but for Crawl”. (Why would anyone use that instead of the Tavern, I don’t know. I thought I could get DCSS players to sign up for App.net :D)

So I wrote clj-dcss, a working parser for DCSS morgue files (out of date by now; also turns out it’s a bad idea to parse the whole log), and rxjava-http-tail for following logs on public servers. And Crawllog itself was also somewhat complete, but I never actually deployed it.

Fast forward to 2016, I no longer use App.net, I’m a huge fan of the IndieWeb and I made a new Crawllog :D
