Fraidycat: follow from afar

Did I mention I quit social media? I think I did. And it felt great, the negative side it's I miss reading the stupid and not so stupid things my friends are posting.

As I'm getting older, I don't enjoy writing code just for the sake of coding anymore 🤷🏻‍♂️, I'm a little tired of reinventing the wheel over and over, I've been doing it since I'm 16 years old. So before jumping into my coding editor of choice (VS Code), I went to Github and searched for: social media scrappers. BINGO!

What's Fraidycat anyways?

Fraidycat is a desktop app or browser extension for Firefox or Chrome. I use it to follow people (hundreds) on whatever platform they choose - Twitter, a blog, YouTube, even on a public TiddlyWiki.

I watched the sick intro video the author's made and got sold!

If you want to dig more on Fraidycat's, check the README.md.

So they only job left was to migrate my list of contacts and subscribe to my favorite RSS feeds. Profit! 💰

Thanks kickscondor for this terrific job!
