Seeking a little fediverse advice/learning use-cases... I would like to discover and follow interesting photographers on . Since that's part of the fediverse, I can follow anyone from this account (awesome!). But how do I browse and discover (without creating a pixelfed account)?
What do y'all do? Multiple accounts and apps or discover with specific accounts on specific platforms and then follow from a main fediverse identity?

If anyone has some experience with or scripting I would love some help for , a utility.

I wrote up all the details on this issue:
Note this is on feature branch which is ahead of main for all proof management.

This isn't an official @keyoxide effort so please don't bug them but I'd love to get help from @yarmo if you have time.

Out now: Glow 1.1.0 🎊

🌟 Config File
Find yourself entering the same flags over and over? Not anymore: glow now supports a config file! See “glow help config”.

🌟 Local-Only Mode
You can now use glow without the network if you fancy. See “glow help”.

I’m 34 years old, dad of two, ICU-nurse and a hobbyist computer programmer and FOSS-lover.
I just learned about mastodon and I am fascinated by its concept.

Hoping to find some chill people here to talk about my interests!

release 0.1.0 is out. Which means I'm hopeful it does what it claims: provides a guided experience in setting up @keyoxide. Currently supports: DNS, Gitea, Github, and Mastodon proofs. If you try it, and find a bug / have suggestions please let me know.

The repo is now also on @codeberg:
It'll continue to be pushed to both Codeberg and Github: in keeping with the spirit of making things easier for users.

Keyoxidizer is 50% less janky now and doesn't require any user intervention (relative to ) in generating key and adding proofs:

It now supports Mastodon and DNS/domain. Github and Twitter are next, I'll have to make accounts for the other services.

Just a little update: I'm back from a much needed break so development is resuming soon. Though I haven't touched the code in three weeks, I haven't been idle either and I'll hopefully have some good news soon 😉

I saw some discussions around @keyoxide and a comment about how 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:

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!

What's your favorite open source on ?

I'm looking for recommendations on those with better features, both functionality and aesthetic features even if I'd have to donate a little something to the devs

Boosts are appreciated 😊

Adobe is one of the two non-foss software ecosystems I use by choice even though there are strong contenders. Most of it has to do with legacy tie-in but subjectively I find the usability and polish better (Adobe Landscape color profile, lens corrections, one click hdr panorama merge). However, I really do want to switch to and this excellent article might just be the catalyst

This is a long but very thoughtfully written article by (of and others fame) about their experience with and being a volunteer maintainer:
So much of it is applicable for working on any kind of team. Cultivating empathy for yourself and towards others are fundamental to fostering good experiences and interactions. Thanks for sharing, Andrew!

There seem to be frequent discussion on /r/emacs about the best way to attract new users to emacs and one such discussion inspired me to put together:
I shared that earlier today on a similar thread and was pleasantly surprised to get a PR helping me flesh it out.
Figured I'd share here, if anyone is interested in collaborating by contributing some config through in . Ultimate goal is to submit to for consideration.
