Fediverse Development Security
Never thought I would see the day. https://www-cnbc-com.cdn.ampproject.org/v/s/www.cnbc.com/amp/2018/10/28/ibm-to-acquire-red-hat-in-deal-valued-at-34-billion.html?amp_js_v=0.1#referrer=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.google.com&_tf=From%20%251%24s&share=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.cnbc.com%2F2018%2F10%2F28%2Fibm-to-acquire-red-hat-in-deal-valued-at-34-billion.html
@hund I choosed the Matias Quiet Click because i wanted to try a Clicky/Tactile switch ^^
@hund rev6, the last. It is not the Planck drop with the RGB lights, but the normal one. I wanted to assembly one myself but it costs me a lot more than picking the drop. Which type are you using? Clicky, Linear or Tactile?
Just got a request about Facebook alternatives on the Fediverse.
There are a number of options, but the one most suitable for non-technical people is probably Friendica.
Friendica's major instances are already federating through ActivityPub (on the development branch of the code), such as:
Friendica has a Facebook-like interface, and FB-like features such as events and photo albums.
I ordered the Planck keyboard from Massdrop, and I choosed Matias switches. The other choices were Gatheron and other that I don't remember. There weren't Cherry MX switches, so I went for the Matias. I hope I will like them, considering it's my first mechanical keyboard :)
Pleroma is a federated social networking platform, compatible with GNU social, Mastodon and other ActivityPub and OStatus implementations. https://pleroma.social And it has a gopher server.
What do you think of the Matias switches?
If you love vim or emacs but have to work on some markdown files collaborative, you should consider using CodiMD.
Sad part: It's not complete implementation of these editors but it may helps you to feel a bit more home.
Making progress with federation support, once this is done I can get back to:
- Instagram Import
- Video support
- APIs (for mobile apps)
- Help Center
I think the only reason is that XMPP has been around for more ten years. Riot.im is not so good (Electron *sigh*), but there are many clients in development.
Have a look at Gnome's client development, they talk about 2 different clients, one to replace IRC-like communication (1 to many) and one to replace Telegram-like messagging (1 on 1).
Though the extension auto completes both username and password.
I have another problem: dmenu and rofi are X11 programs, so they start on xwayland because I am using Sway. And the clipboard sharing is not working currently lol.
Thanks for suggestion, I've always wanted to try it.
