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.
They said the same thing about app distribution. We have both systems: package managers and app stores.
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.
how do i force dark mode on subreply?
Opera has a dark mode switcher. OS switcher should work too.
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.
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.
reading the news is a bigger waste of time than playing video games
what are some options excluding TypeScript and Flow for type-checking a Node project?
You could write it in Reason and output JS. :)
the sun kil moon/jesu collab albums are seriously underrated
anyone running Nextcloud on a Raspberry Pi? what's the easiest way to get it up and running fast? I got me an 8GB model with an external SSD.
There should be ready made Debian compatible packages for nextcloud. **EDIT** There is actually this: ownyourbits.com/ne...
Yes ! with Archlinux ARM on PI 4, 2 GB model with 128 GB SD Card. Minimal config. With your device's configuration, it could be easy to setup Nextcloud. I don't see any package for installation (or a snap package maybe)
drupal is the worst thing in the world
installing WSL2 on my work PC. hopefully this goes well...
Docker with WSL2 backend was a huge upgrade for my workflow.
Learning SQL! Starting with a simple app. Posted a question on stackoverflow, but wondering if anyone here can help? The full question is over here: stackoverflow.com/...
best storage for a Raspberry Pi if I want to host web applications? wondering how viable an SD card/flash drive/2.5 SSD are. I'm thinking of getting an external enclosure for a 2.5 SSD i have lying around and using that, but not sure how each compares.
I host web applications (Nextcloud, Wordpress, ...) on my rasp with an SD card (128 Go) for the moment. It's not the best i know but working well. If i buy next year the 4 Go RAM version, i'll be interested in using a SSD.
I think the main issue with the SD card (even more than speed) is the usually shitty lifetimes.
