New Open Graph (OG) images have been added, these are quite cool and I do encourage you to check 'em out. They should hopefully make shared benchmarks more compelling to look at 🤔

If you want to try it out, don't wait! Have a link on me - free of charge of course! 🤑

Last, but not least, the shorts-section of HASTY has been give a pretty cool overhaul. Also the OG-tags - and images - are updated 🥳


Most all of the OG- and meta-tags have been updated, along with some of the visible text 📈🤞

All pages have been migrated/re-branded to notebook*, this makes it easier to understand by new users 🤗 Don't worry, though, all old pages still work, but will be redirected to notebooks 🤫


Paid a massive tech-debt. Not all, but it's a great start! 🥵

👋 until next time,

Optimizations that caches!

Published by: Mobilpadde, Founder of

I might not have been very active on the socials - namely Twitter these past weeks. Due to some personal reasons, I have not been able to work on any side-projects. Sadly, and I'm so, so sorry! 😢

Today has been very different though! I've been typing away, and quite fast - if I should say so myself 🥹

Thus, prepare yourselves for the new and massively improved! 😍


We all love those fast and snappy site, right? Well, the secret sauce is sometimes caching, something I've not implemented on - until now! Whoop! 🚤 So, please, enjoy the power of caching!

Of cause it won't be cached for ever, just a few moments, so if you might click the Run by accident right after another run, this won't hurt anybody now.

What happens if you change the code, then? Well, it's a completely new payload, meaning the tasks will be run anew! Also, the percentages will update according to these new op/s.

Quite a few new improvements, I don't even know where to start 🤷


Use the proper fetching mechanism for the front-end - this has been a tech-debt for quite awhile. I'm using SvelteKit, just FYI. Simply haven't been able to love any other front-end SSR framework as much!

Along with this, I've messed a bit with the request and responses, these are now far smaller than before! This should - maybe - equal to some faster answers to whatever you might seek!

The API got the largest overhaul, this also means the deployment process. The docker-image is now exactly half the size of what it used to be! - Did somebody say faster releases? Heck ya!

All in all, clarified the code for future me to work in - I'll love past self in the future 🤗


What about being able to see those variable texts of one of the notebooks, those are much better handled now. You're welcome! 🤩

Hopefully fixed issues with the API, that unfortunately seems to disconnect from the data-store at randomized weird moments 🫣

Also, a big mystery still is the recovering from a complete panic, these are still on a testing basis, but might the right ones now.

On other - related - news: I have decided to try out with the new (a tad old) kid in the yard! Mastodon, here I am...


Branching and Reviews

Published by: Mobilpadde, Founder of gitbird

How about it. Some people don't want all of their commits to become tweets for every branch but some do! And that's quite alright!

Two new features on gitbird, some of you might ahve noticed my newest tweet and yes, it's for real!

  1. I for one, are using sub-modules in my git repository and have only installed the gitbird web-hook to one the main repository. Thus whenever I commit to it, it can become a tweet immediately! But some users weren't super happy with this, thus I've added a new feature to select which branch gitbird will collect commits from to turn into tweets 🐦

  2. I - some times - commit a lot. And I mean quite a lot. So I don't want to turn every commit into a tweet, but other a users has suggested that they don't want to login to the dashboard to check out the tweets. They are confident on what they commit - and in conjunction with the branch-feature, they can now be completely certain! Yes, you might have guessed it, I added a toggle to turn on or off the review mode! 🦜 Let that parrot, parrot 😍

I hope the world (🌐) is gonna love it.

Best regards, Mads 🐦

gitbird 🐦

A story

After three years without being online, I've decided to re-launch gitbird 🐦

With a tagline of:

Tweeting has been rather tedious for developers, some even forget. With gitbird you never have to tweet, ever, again! We'll provide a missing link 🐦

One might assume that gitbird will tweet all and everything that a user has committed, but this is not exactly true! With gitbird, you decide what, when and how to tweet the essential commits for your product!

The death and resurrection

The reason why I took it off-line those years back, is the code wasn't completely up-to date with today's standard. So I decided to kill it. Now, though, I've been in all secrecy been developing on it. I now think it is time to finally release the bird and let people see it spread its wings again! 🥳


All I have to say now, is that I totally think you should go give it a try! It's totally ready and waiting just for you!

For the fun of it, I've decided to twet out the first tweet of my own from @gitbird (here). Why don't you be the second?

I love these short urls! 🤓

Published by: Mobilpadde, Founder of

Don't you just hate it when an app sharing feature turns into a 5k long char-chain? Well, I did for, but no more! I've updated most everything and urls are now always 22 characters long, no more, no less! Oh happy joy!

Here's an example of a shorter url, it's for the notebook feature of, which I've dubbed pages.

Even works for everything else, that's sharable via! What are you waiting for? Please go check it out 😍

Sorting Algorithms

Published by: Mobilpadde, Founder of

After a lot of thinking, I've implemented a few sorting algorithms comparing them against eachother! 😍

These can be found at or by navigating to the direct link and so on for the different algorithms! Nerdy, I know! 🤓

So far I've added:

  • Bubble Sort
  • Selection Sort
  • Insertion Sort
  • Merge Sort
  • Quick Sort
  • Heap Sort

Happy benchmarking!

Pages are like notebooks

Published by: Mobilpadde, Founder of

The Idea

I've for a while have been tinkering with what I think JavaScript'ers have been missing - namely a way to make Jupyter-like notebooks!

So I started building. Actually been on this since November 12th - so about a month. Lot's of stuff is going to happen still!

The past

Back on the 12th of November it couldn't do much, in fact you were only able to build a page using the source code!

This couldn't spark much joy to any people, so that brings us to the present.

The present

Now you are able to build pages as your heart desires! still missing some documentation on how to use the page-builder, but it's definitely a step in the right direction!

The future

No one knows what the future will bring, not even me for this project! What I do know, though, is that there wil have to be some docs upon how to use the scripting of the pages. Hopefully also a more intuitive way to use the page builder and so on.

I'd love to get some way to work on a saved notebook again, as for now it is not possible to get working on an old saved notebook, which is quite a shame!

The page itself

The notebooks are easily managed by a notion-esque idea-inspired way to build a page - in this case, a notebook.

You start with mostly nothing, then add along all the fields you'd possibly need for a long coding experiment.

It all starts with a box - a magic box one might say. This box allows you to add any element you'd like.

For now though, there are four elements to choose from:

  • Header - A header element
  • Text - A text-area element
  • Code - The snippets to run and global to run from
  • Comment - A super simple comment - for less text that Text, but not quite a heading

Checkout the /page to get a taste off all the elements. It'll show off all of the elements!

The End

Thanks for reading!

By now you must be super excited to get the pages - notbooks - a try! You without further ado, and a demo is also available on 🥰

Pst. There's also a shortcut to get a compelely clean slate by navigating to 💡
