Monthly link collections with staticsite

A year ago, I wrote:

Instead of keeping substantial tabs open until I have read all of them, or losing them in the jungle of browser bookmarks, I have written a script that collects them into a file per month, and turns them into markdown files for my blog.

That script turned out to be quirky and overengineered, so much so that I stopped using it myself.

I've now rethought my approach, and downscaled it: instead of saving a copy of each page locally, I can blog a reference to or I do not need to autogenerate a description from the site itself.

The result has been a nicely minimal set of changes to staticsite that resulted in a new version where adding a link to a monthly collection is as easy as typing ssite new -a links.

As long as I'll remember to rebuild the site 3 weeks from now, a new post should automagically appear in my blog.
