New Service, Spyda


Thu, 27 Oct 2022

Today, I deployed spyda, an independent web-crawler and search engine on ~vern.

With spyda, we can have an independent crawler for indexing cool free-software related websites

Along with this, I would like to announce the discontinuation of our Wiby instance.

It was a pain to host and update plus the way it indexed was not very good since it was done synchronously..

Moreover it also needed admin-verification for all new website requests which sucked :/

It will go down next thursday (5th november).

Thank you for being a part of ~vern.
