The video section is shorter than usual, as the way to conveniently aggregate YouTube videos by using a searX instance, that allows RSS feeds, is currently unavailable, as the the searx instance is down. I was unable to quickly find another searX(NG) instance that supports this. Help with finding another searX(NG) instance supporting RSS feeds or with the collection of relevant videos is highly appreciated!


Huge thanks to Plata for the nifty set of Python scripts that speed up collecting links from feeds by a lot.

If your project's cool story (or your awesome video or nifty blog post or ...) is missing and you don't want that to happen again, please just put it into the hedgedoc pad for the next one! Since I am collecting many things there, this get's you early access if you will ;-) If you just stumble on a thing, please put it in there too - all help is appreciated!
