Announcing Blutwurst 0.5

This one really isn’t new – I cut the release over a month ago. Blutwurst is a test data generation program. It is written in Clojure and offers a ready way to create data for use in a database or in unit tests. I plan to write a longer introduction to the application later.

There is a more detailed changelog entry at https://github.com/michaeljmcd/blutwurst/blob/master/CHANGELOG.md but the big change was the addition of JSON Schema parsing to the options for developing a schema and XML as an output format.

Announcing mm2tiddlywikitext v0.1

I’m trying to catch up on writing posts about some of the open source stuff I’ve been building out lately. This is an older one, but still useful (I hope) to someone.

mm2tiddlywikitext is a stylesheet that reformats a FreeMind mind map as TiddlyWiki bulleted text. My main use-case for this is importing my mind maps in a searchable way into TiddlyWiki.

The easiest option is to use it directly from within FreeMind. Go to File > Export > Using XSLT…. In the dialog that pops up, provide the path to stylesheet.xslt and an output location. This will create a TiddlyWiki 5 JSON file that can be imported into TiddlyWiki.
