The Hitchhiker’s Guide to PlantUML

PlantUML is an amazingly useful tool, and The Hitchhiker’s Guide to PlantUML provides a productive introduction to the tool (including why you might want to use it). News to me: the C4 model is in the standard library.

Foam: a Roam-like setup for VS Code

Summer: curate lists of things

Summer is a poorly-named (from an SEO perspective) app that’s a cool idea: make lists of media you’re interested in. The business model seems interesting because it’s essentially going with a paid subscription model (there may be ads in the free version, I’m not sure). “A better GoodReads” would be great. I haven’t tried Summer yet, so I don’t know if it will be that.
