It was a normal, almost boring work week. For open source, I released a new version of django-cast, now compatible with Wagtail 6.1. The fix turned out to be surprisingly simple: just define window.chooserUrls = {} before using it like this window.chooserUrls.audioChooser = '/cms/audio/audio/chooser/';.Perhaps some Wagtail JavaScript defined window.chooserUrls previously, and version 6.1 no longer does this? Additionally, I added cover images for blogs. For episodes the podcasts iTunes artwork is used as a fallback when a cover image is missing. But what about normal blog posts? And even for podcast episodes, the iTunes artwork might not be appropriate in every situation. Adding a cover image to the blog makes the behavior consistent. I also fixed a bug, where the Podlove player stopped working after HTMX navigation. Finally, I discovered the cause of the mysterious "DataError: PostgreSQL text fields cannot contain NUL (0x00) bytes" errors in the logs. It seems that Wagtail APIViewSets don't validate user input properly.

And then we caught a stomach bug that ruined our weekend.

If you want to do good, make sure the people who tell you you're doing good are actually good. --Chris McDonough


It was a busy work week, leaving little time for anything else. I did manage to procrastinate a bit by diving deeper into the Rust programming language. I might even write a small game - let's see how it goes. Voting this time didn't feel great at all. This is not going to end well.

Short work week. Didn't get anything done besides work because I was sick more than half of the week.
