(a TUI client written in ) v0.20.0 is here.

You can now make themes for Waffle using an INI file!

Pictured is a horrible example of the infamous "Hotdog Stand" theme from Windows 3.1 being implemented in Waffle.

I have theming working locally for (a TUI browser written in ).

Suggest some default themes to be included! For example: autumn, monochrome, etc.

( client written in ) v0.17.0 is out!

The GIF shows off all the new features, but also a bug... find mode should close when it opens a text file (something for next release).


* Docs/help for using jump to menu item #
* Titlebar uses display string from links which led the user to the resource
* Refresh feature! Press F5 to reload a text file or a menu!


* Make it so menu item find is case-insensitive

Should I continue using using Data.ConfigFile because I've used it for a while and because the author has a Gopherhole and this is for a project, or should I start using Data.Ini which I like better? I've already started half-reimplementing in Data.Ini.

I find Data.ConfigFile feels overcomplicated, probably because I'm uncomfortable sitll with monads and monad transformers.

I have my first (
browser) user in the wild, reporting bugs! How exciting!

I'm trying to get to the bottom of their crash and make an expedited patch (as soon as I hear back).

I believe the bug is related to my INI parser not being able to parse certain section titles.

(a client written in ) v0.12.0 is out!

Now you can bookmark text files and menus with the + key!

Edit a text file to manage your bookmarks or use the TUI!

Not much left until v1.0.0! A couple features and then a big cleanup.

Here's a peak of the bookmarks feature in ( TUI client written in ).

You can use the TUI to manage bookmarks *OR* you can just edit the INI file directly.

I am making progress on bookmarking in (a client written in ). As you can see, the INI file representing bookmarks of resources in gopherspace is read in and represented as a normal menu.

By the way, I'm looking for default bookmark recommendations! Recommend your favorite gopherholes, including your own!
