SourceCrypto Research-Index

2 minute read


A discord server and web-portal for creating an open-source, public-domain, index of Crypto Knowledge.

Source Crypto Discord Chat is a landing pad.. I drop links there on the fly, occasionaly exporting and publishing the channels here. The next step is to systematically build better, more organized resources with the server as a starting point.

The aim is to generally map out the history and knowledge related to Bitcoin and blockchain in general.

There is so much to learn about, I mostly manage to avoid thinking about scammy stuff and icos, and really whatever you are hyped about, I probably don’t care. So the application section is in rough shape.. I don’t spend a lot of time there. Tech, History, Development, Webwork. I care about real web technologies.

So, little by little, those un-organized pages will grow to become each a formidible resource of its own.

While I do intend to build custom pages for most of these channels, being able to simply export the entire discord server and publish it is excellent.

A Machine Readable Repository on Every Subject In Crypto.

Source⧉Crypto Discord server - I collect and categorize links in here, on the fly.

Previously, I was putting information in TOML format. Then, after I started to learn GitHub pages, and working with some other people on a similar project for Decentralized Identity, I realized that GitHub Pages \ Jekyll have built-in support for yaml, csv, and json… but I haven’t really gotten so far as figuring that out.

Recently, I found Tyrrrz/DiscordChatExporter which quickly turned the entire contents of Source Crypto Discord Server into 170+ html files.

Then, I used minimal-mistakes collections feature to quickly publish the lot of them, using VSCode to easily edit all of the files at the same time.

I cut out the head of each of the files and injected the css to be applied to those pages.

That’s a super quick way to get all that content up here on the web where anyone can access it more easily.

Bitcoin Nerds

Eventually all of the info in these Bitcoin servers will be published on the same site.
