WIP - Work In Progress in my blog
In my blog I prefer to share as soon as possible what I’m working on and what I’m writing about. When there is a small amount of value in what I’m writing, I don’t wait to end it to publish it. Obviously these WIP (Work In Progress) pieces could be incomplete (duh!), not entirely correct (waiting factchecking), and/or readable (waiting editing).
I use this Hugo shortcode
to include WIP sections in my posts. This shortcode corresponds to this rendered section:
This is a Work In Progress (WIP).
I’ve also found a simple solution for a problem in the RSS feed: when I’m working on a WIP piece I dont’t want to send an RSS item for every single editing, but I would like to create a new RSS item after an important update. To do that, I use the
guid tag (https://www.rssboard.org/rss-specification#ltguidgtSubelementOfLtitemgt) in the RSS Hugo template:
and in the frontmatter of the WIP post I write:
I use UUIDv4 for the rssGuid. When I want to send an update to my RSS feed followers, I generate a new UUID and remplace the value in the rssGuid parameter.
