🤘 Matthew Are you talking about the Local feed? That doesn't solve the problem of trying to have a conversation with people on your instance only to have some troll from shitposter.club or neckbeard.xyz jump in. Mastodon provides public, unlisted, followers-only, and direct--but not local-only, and unlisted isn't an adequate substitute because unlisted toots are still accessible from the open web.
🗨️ Keb Ah yes, I see what you're saying. Although I think that's one of federation's greatest strengths -- I personally have not experienced trolls derailing conversations, but I reckon that can be an issue on any large enough community. Mastodon and Pleroma can definitely find better ways to help isolate users that want to be isolated.
Miso What's your favorite text editor?
🤘 Matthew I disagree. Federation is one of the reasons Mastodon/Pleroma are unpleasant; it contributes to context collapse and makes it harder to compartmentalize across forums. If I'm on server X, I don't want to hear from anybody on servers Y and Z (or see their untagged loli porn or alt-reich memes). If I wanted to interact with people on servers Y and Z, I'd create accounts there.
🗨️ Keb Both Mastodon and Pleroma have features to only see content from within your server.
🏒 Lucian Marin They said the same thing about app distribution. We have both systems: package managers and app stores.
🗨️ Keb I believe people and social networks are vastly different than apps and app stores, respectively.
🗨️ Keb I am starting to think that any new microblog should have federation support at this point. There's too many social networks; things are too fragmented. It's definitely nice having a small community of likeminded folks, but the paradox is that every community in its early stage wants *more* users until the point where old users reminisce of the good old days when the site had "personality", and then leave to another smaller community.

👨‍💻 Matthieu V. Actually using Albert or rofi on Linux (X11) as application launcher, do you have any other recommendation ?
🗨️ Keb I currently use Rofi and love it, but maybe check out ulauncher.io if you're looking for alternatives.
🗨️ Keb volta.sh this seems really useful so far!
👨‍💻 Matthieu V. I bookmarked this one that should help you : subreply.com/n4n/jrg
🗨️ Keb This is awesome, thanks. I really wish websites would just give us a switch if they already have a dark mode. Just use localStorage!
🏒 Lucian Marin Opera has a dark mode switcher. OS switcher should work too.
🗨️ Keb Ah that's lame. I use Firefox, and I prefer the light theme for my OS.
🗨️ Keb how do i force dark mode on subreply?

🗨️ Keb Anyone have recommended reading on Front-End App Architecture? Preferably not React-specific, but that's fine. I'd like the knowledge to transfer to other frameworks like Mithril, Hyperapp, Svelte, etc.
🧐 Nrmn Vuejs has excellent documentation and Svelte's documentation is getting better and better each time I'm checking. I'd recommend you to check Svelte first because it's the most different from a technical view.
🗨️ Keb reading the news is a bigger waste of time than playing video games
🧐 Nrmn Nice, that looks indeed useful for Javascript. I'm planning on checking out ReScript (former buckleScript) and may rewrite some projects over the years end. Let's see!
🗨️ Keb Does ReScript also replace ReasonML? I'm kind of confused by how they play together with OCaml. Looks cool nonetheless.
🧐 Nrmn Did you find a solution for runtime type checks in your node project?
🗨️ Keb Hey! Thanks for following up. I ended up going with github.com/userpix... for it's tiny size and minimalism. it was also pretty easy to wrap a "validator" function around its methods
🧐 Nrmn Finally dark mode in Github! About damn time! github.com/setting...
🗨️ Keb Finally, I can retire my custom Sylus CSS
🧐 Nrmn No recommendations for a runtime package from my side except that I would personally prefer compile time checks instead of putting the load onto the client.
🗨️ Keb Thanks. Likewise, I wouldn't wanna do that client-side either. This is a server-side Node app wherein I'm trying to keep the tooling to a minimum. :) I may adopt TypeScript in the future since it seems that's where the JS-world is headed...
