I'll note that the Linux backend code isn't exactly high-quality, I wrote it before I really got good with C. There's really no need to point it out and make me read my own abomination.
Just released a joystick library I wrote last year and haven't touched since. The goal is a simple platform-independent interface.
Currently, the only backend present is for #linux, but the API is extremely simple and other systems should be really easy to add.
I plan to add a #plan9 backend (eh? eh? sorry, I'll stop) soonish, but have no intentions of adding Windows / MacOS support. Patches welcome, though!
@dogstar In mastofs' readme, you say to echo into factotum the auth token - which makes sense. However, you specify that the password should be given as 'pass=foobar', which allows anything to read it from factotum at-will. Instead, it should be written with '!pass=foobar', which tells factotum it's private data.
i looked for a mailing list and didn't see one, but figured since you're here you probably wouldn't mind if I let you know via the 'don :)
Reminder of why #Signal is far from optimal:
- No #anonymity (every account is connected to a phone number)
- Not #opensource (the git repo of the server hasn't been updated in a year)
- No #decentralization
- No web client, and max. 1 mobile client per account
- No #privacy (your entire contact list is uploaded to the server. It's encrypted, but it's trivial to brute-force encrypted phone numbers. You can prevent it by disabling the PIN feature, but it's enabled by default without warning.)
@kev mhm, the cause sounds sane, but somehow "supporting the free software foundation by using proprietary software (GitHub)" sounds like fundamentally flawed. There are so many alternatives that provide the same feature set required for this task and are actually built on free software.
(And yes, I know it missed the main point of this letter by miles, but I think it is an example on how might even push the FSF towards "RMS as last hope", and they love to be nitpicky)
