Keyoxide Project Update #1
Been a bit busy lately: creating a non-profit foundation, getting a grant and releasing a #node library! 😎
Oh, and there's a Keyoxide Matrix room now! #keyoxide:matrix.org 🤩
Big announcement time 🎉
This #keyoxide project started as a "labor of love" side project but the awesome community response clearly showed me it deserved even more attention and care.
I'm excited to announce that NLnet / @NGIZero will be funding the project, allowing me to dedicate my full time to it and contribute in my own way to our collective struggle for online identity and security.
I thank all of you for your motivating feedback. Now, we can really begin 😎
I saw some discussions around @keyoxide and a comment about how #keybase is more novice friendly caught my eye. So I decided to checkout @yarmo 's excellent documentation and create an interactive (hopefully) novice-friendly script.
Here's Keyoxidizer: https://github.com/shombando/keyoxidizer
This is work in progress and the notation is a shameful hack, so I'd love to help to sort it out. It only supports Mastodon now but I plan to incrementally add other platforms (that I have accounts on). PRs welcome!
Great feeling to start the monday with a release 🎉 2.2.0!
If you know SEMVER, you know it's going to be more than just fixes 😋
I have started using #keyoxide in conjunction with my Yubikey! I have also provided an "how to add notations" PR to DrDuh's Yubikey Guide: https://github.com/drduh/YubiKey-Guide#adding-notations
I just replaced my link to Keybase with @keyoxide.
I only used Keybase to provide my PGP key and let people encrypt their messages using a web-based software but well, Keyoxide is much better.
Fosstodon is an English speaking Mastodon instance that is open to anyone who is interested in technology; particularly free & open source software.
