I've decided to retire the directory today. The excellent gemini://medusae.space directory by Mjollna & Laërte is growing at quite a pace, and will easily outpace my efforts. Their DB backed approach also has some advantages for nesting, multi-category links, language info that will be nice as the Gemini space grows.
At the moment the Gemini space is quite small, and directories can be fairly complete, so I'd prefer not to maintain something that will have a very large overlap.
I'll leave gemini://directory.randomroad.net up for 3 months, until the end of April. The source repo will stay beyond that, in case it warrants revisiting in future.
This has been a short but fun project. Found a lot of interesting things to read over the last couple of months.
This is the source for the Random Road Gemini directory, which is hosted at:
Contributions are welcomed by email to firstname.lastname@example.org, whether a simple email with some links, or a git patch. Please try to propose a category, and a 1 sentence summary of each suggested link.
I aim to periodically review new sites known to GUS etc. and check for broken links to keep the directory reasonably up to date, and growing.
The directory is purposefully a manually edited collection of pages, rather than a database or scripted site. Please refrain from proposing helper scripts, CGIs etc. However, note that the content is CC0 licensed, so you can use it as the basis for creating your own directory with as much funky tech as you see fit :-)
