Example of debugging an http endpoint (or function in general) in Biff (or Clojure in general)

Ratings API

I just added an API endpoint which gives you all your ratings as JSON. You could use it to e.g. fetch all your favorited articles and send them to your aunt. You can enable it from the settings page.

Also, Findka Essays has been a little flaky this week. There have been a couple days when it hasn't sent the emails out. I can trigger them manually, but I, uh, sometimes get distracted. Anyway, I've tweaked some things and hopefully it won't be an issue anymore. But either way, I'm keeping an eye on it, and I'll dig in further if the problem persists.

Better logs for Datomic Cloud Ions

You may discover soon after adding logging to your Ions that CloudWatch really sucks. Fortunately you can forward your logs to Loggly instead. See here.

Modifying Datomic schema for composite tuples

Say you define a composite tuple like so:

#:db{:ident :foo,
     :valueType :db.type/tuple,
     :unique :db.unique/identity,
     :tupleAttrs [:bar :baz],
     :cardinality :db.cardinality/one}

Now suppose you want to change [:bar :baz] to [:bar :quux]. The [Datomic
