Oooh! 😲 Ecco, infatti non lo conoscevo kbin.
Tecnicamente questo è già ciò che voglio io, solo la UI/UX non mi piace granché; però, se dovessi fare una scelta tra forkare Lemmy per sistemare sia un po’ di backend che un po’ di frontend, o questo dove potrei avere ciò che voglio alla base semplicemente modificando il frontend, beh… potrei partire da questo 😄! (anche se il fatto che sia creato con PHP mi fa storcere il naso…)
Ci guarderò un po’ dentro, grazie ancora. L’ho aggiunto alla mia lista di piattaforme del Fediverso, ultimamente ne stanno uscendo fuori di nuove come funghi (è buono) e se non te le segni te le perdi!
Beh si, a livello concettuale si tratta di mettere in piedi una piattaforma con federazione che però, anziché prendere il design da Twitter per esempio, come fa Mastodon, prende le idee da Miiverse.
Sul come farlo dal lato pratico, ci sono tante opzioni:
Partendo da Lemmy, come ho detto, le cose da fare sarebbero circa queste:
Ah bene bene, non sapevo che proprio in questi giorni si stesse muovendo qualcosa a riguardo. Bene, sarebbe un passo avanti!
Per il resto, se voglio usare Lemmy come base, a meno che non mettono anche opzioni per cambiare lo stile delle timeline, dovrò comunque fare il mio fork. Sicuramente non metteranno le reazioni pubbliche, a meno di un ridesign completo della UX di Lemmy, perché sarebbe un cambiamento troppo radicale. Idem se voglio fare un’altra cosa non necessaria ma per me bella: implementare delle API client parallele nel server, per permettere, oltre alle app Lemmy, anche alle app di Miiverse per WiiU e 3DS di collegarsi 🤫

On the Pi I already use an HDD for data and most of my programs, plus some megabytes (64 today, yesterday it was 32) of swap in addition to the 128 MB I have on my slow microSD, (which apart from that only holds the base system, really).
Considering that an SSD on the Pi3 is wasteful due to the USB 2.0 limit, that I don’t have any spare, and that the smallest SSD I can find (128 GB) is still at least twice the cost of my 320 GB HDD, guess what 2.5" external drive I’ll keep as main currently.
System and programs aren’t running slow right now, so, since I need more swap, I could try adding some more on the HDD, and only then actually try pendrives, just for 1 o 2 GB of swap at max. I can add them, since I have some spare and they are cheap to get anyways.
But yeah, if I had USB 3.0 on a SBC with 1 GB of RAM, I would get the SSD.
Flashdrives die sooner than good quality SSDs, but in general are at least a bit more resilient than microSD cards. Even I’m considering starting to use a small USB pen as extra swap space for my Raspberry Pi 3; for what they cost, even if they will eventually break, they are good value.
Why is it slow for you? Here are some things to consider:
USB speeds: USB as a protocol is generally slower than SATA, even version 3. If your drive or your port are 2.0, then you will deal with a theoretical max bandwidth of 480 mbps (but the practical one is much lower!). If they are 3.x, check that the flashdrive makes proper contact in the port with not only the main big 4 pins, but also the small pins hidden deeper inside the connector (I have no idea how on Linux tho :/); most USB A 3.0 connectors and ports have issues connecting together for some reason, and it may happen that the SuperSpeed pins can’t get close and thus the connection will degrade to 2.0 speeds.
Cheap chips (pun intended): Cheap USB pen drives nowadays use both low-quality controller chips and memory chips. From experience I can say that some inexpensive modern flashdrives that are sold as USB 3.0, and get connected as 3.0 to an host system, actually work at around 2.0 speeds. Why? Sometimes it’s because low-quality memory chips are used, that won’t work properly if accessed with high speeds, and thus the controller chips in the drives are programmed to limit read/write speeds… some other times, the controller chip is also crappy, and transfers slow down because it overheats. Also, bandwidth is not the only thing that suffers: on cheap flashdrives you can experience high latency.
Both limited bandwidth and high latency impact a lot when you use any storage medium for OS or program storage, or even swap memory. If you want some decent but easy to read statistics to test those values (with graphs too), install GNOME Disks and use its disk benchmark tool. You can verify how well your USB pen drive performs, and even compare it to your SSD.
As a side note, from most of my flashdrives (including one which connects via USB 3.0) I always get no more than 15 MB/s read + 5 MB/s write… that’s a practical speed of 160 mbps, a mere 1/3 of the theoretical for 2.0.
comments aren’t a thing with writefreely
What do you mean? You can look up any profile in the form of
@firstname.lastname@example.org from apps like Mastodon, Friendica, etc…, see all posts, and comment regularly.
Is the fact that there’s no link or embed of the comment section at the bottom of the WriteFreely page that is bothering you, or am I not understanding?
On a side note: if you are really choosing how to build a blog (like it seems you are), and are not taking the first free managed hosting provider you come across…
I would think twice before using any server software instead of keeping your site static. Having a server software that’s more complex than simply serving static files will do more harm than good in the long run: more security flaws, you have to always keep the thing updated, higher resource usage, and hard to make your content survive the test of time (backing these things up is hard and when you do, you have a database file, not some plaintext ones)
Quando mai la zucca marca non si mette a rompere? a cambiare le API ogni settimana, quasi come YouTube… ma poi, mi sembra di ricordare che Instagram funzioni ancora con versioni di anni fa della app ufficiale. Che API usa? Bisognerebbe costruire un frontend su quelle. Forse la chiave è il fatto che si abbia un account? Non sarebbe difficile creare un frontend dove semplicemente, chi lo ospita (non chi visita), deve fare login con il proprio account per far funzionare il sistema.
Sorprendentemente… Ho cercato e non ho trovato nulla? Forse perché progettare bene giochi di carte alla Magic non è facile. Se a gente interessasse particolarmente un gioco di carte già esistente (come fisico o digitale) potrebbe creare un client di gioco digitale che a livello di codice è libero (ma in quanto ad assets, devi prendere in prestito creazioni altrui… finché non ti metti a fare usi commerciali e il progetto non diventa troppo famoso, però, la creazione non dovrebbe avere problemi)
As I said though, the idea is nice, I could probably implement it as a new feature for my own static site generator, as a replacement to wiki-like footnotes (the concept I currently use to move additional information away from the content body)
Miis actually look good compared to this, because their design is simple, kind of chibi, and doesn’t try at being too realistic or accurate
This is in the uncanny valley, Miis really aren’t
Update: well, I just now discovered that tmux can actually be configured to more or less be what I like. Still missing a clickable new-tab button, but being able to click to switch between open tabs and having tab ribbons with a custom color is good enough for me. I’ll try to finish setting up my config then
Maybe, that’s true on a desktop PC… but on mobile, oh well. Even with a physical full-qwerty keypad, it’s a lot harder to use what in this situation I wouldn’t call “shortcuts”.
You already have to move fingers around, better moving it to click a single, well visible, distinctly coloured button, than to aim at a specific modifier key that has the same color and is close to others, and then click another key to do the action.
I’ve been looking for some terminal multiplexer between yesterday and today but I can’t really find something that works as I like: something like GNOME terminal or Konsole, with simple clickable tabs, but it’s a TTY app instead of a GTK/Qt app, so it can run in any other terminal emulator.
I found Zellij which, if customized to only keep the tabs bar, could be a good solution.
It works on my PC, but it’s source is too heavy to compile on my server or even my smartphone…
I also found out about the amazing vtm, basically a full window manager that works in the terminal.
At the moment, it’s too mouse-focused to be fully used in a terminal emulator with only partial mouse emulation, like Termux, but, [un]maximizing windows and opening the side taskbar to navigate between windows works, so it’s at least usable. It’s included in the Termux repos, so I hope it will be easy to compile even on my server.
It has some things I don’t like, such as the fact that it forces is own dark theme - not ideal if you find yourself working on an LCD smartphone in an higly-lit environment, where light theme is basically a requirement to see anything. I will try forking it, to make it work with the standard terminal theme if possible, or a custom light theme. I will also try making some mobile improvements, like making the windows be maximized by default and the taskbar more easily accessible.
Unless someone knows of a TTY terminal multiplexer like I said I need it… just a clickable bar with open tabs, an open button, and close buttons… like any GTK/Qt terminal app, but with TTY rendering…
I already have a persistent USB drive with Puppy Linux and I really like it, but my uses for it are obviously different
I mostly use it at school to have a system that I like better than Windows, is more secure because only I have access to the file system, and I have all my files with me… but, no, absolutely not doable to boot into the thing every time I want to code.
Thanks for the suggestions!
I’ve looked a bit into it and if I understand, I can just install the VSCode server on the machine I will keep all my code on, and then use the VSCode client on a client device.
Seems OK to me, except for… do you know if VSCode being broken on mobile web browsers is a common issue? I’ve sometimes tried the online VSCode editor (github.dev, or the GitLab code editor, which are simply VSCode without a server) on Kiwi Browser (Chromium-based) and with OpenBoard (my preferred virtual keyboard) I have issues. Sometimes I can’t type anymore, some other times I can type but not delete with backspace, and a long-press to bring up the copy-paste menu stops working. I should try Firefox…
Update: well, I tried it, with code-server and it has many problems on mobile browsers. It’s Monaco Editor’s (the editor used by VSCode) fault, see https://github.com/Microsoft/monaco-editor/issues/246.
Hovewer, I found this project, a web IDE that’s not VSCode but uses a patched version of Monaco Editor, that should work well with mobile: BLACKICEcoder.
If I can’t get a satisfying workflow with TUI text editors, I might try using this to edit code, and SSH to run it and have access to a terminal (which this does not include, unlike VSCode).
I found out that things like Replit (a SaaS-only, proprietary and not selfhostable, cloud IDE) use another editor, CodeMirror.
Unfortunately, I can’t find any ready-to-use selfhostable solution that has the text editor web client connect to a server, like code-server does for VSCode.
I already use Termux and SSH to administrate my server, sometimes I use nano to edit small scripts, but as I said, I don’t really like it… and vim for me would be even worse :c
As far as a terminal text editor goes, there are some which I would like to try but haven’t already. One of them if mcedit (included in Midnight Commander). I probably should try to use it as my main editor for a while…
Another problem of using just the terminal is that multitasking is not easy. Either you use the tab feature of your terminal emulator, which when using SSH is not really a good idea, or you’re pretty much screwed. I don’t know of any terminal multiplexer/wm that is not too focused on having so many keyboard shortcuts, I would like something with maybe a taskbar at the bottom and that’s it, you switch between consoles by clicking that (or using one simple shortcut).
But, yes, the idea itself of keeping stuff onto one server and just remoting into it seems good. I just need to find a software stack for that that I really like.
Io l’ho provato SSB (tramite Manyverse) e si, non è adatto. Più che altro perché va con un P2P davvero estremo. Neanche io sono riuscita a farlo funzionare, provandolo con alcune persone, a dire la verità. C’era confusione su come seguirsi a vicenda, sul perché i post non arrivassero agli altri, e inoltre dava anche problemi su rete mobile.
Un protocollo come l’ho pensato io oggi potrebbe a mio parere essere implementato in maniera molto user-friendly, per esempio in una app che di default ti fa creare un account su uno a caso di diversi provider inclusi nella app (che so, GitHub sites, Neocities, e così via). Solo gli utenti esperti, che conoscono il funzionamento tecnico della app e vogliono usare un loro server, andranno ad aprire le opzioni avanzate.
L’uso ad app configurata non dovrebbe essere invece per nulla difficile, dovrebbe essere come le piattaforme ActivityPub, ma invece degli username (@email@example.com) i profili hanno gli URL (pinco.pallino.net).
I actually do know that… but it still has higher probability of convincing someone, compared to privacy
That’s actually sadly real, and I can’t emphasize “sadly” enough 😅
I have a friend that about 3 years ago introduced me to libre software. At that time, she used very few proprietary garbage. From about a year though she went back to using Instagram (why???) and other stuff (not only social networks, but things like messaging apps, which is a bit less bad), but luckily still prefers libre software when possible.
I still have to thank her for being so insistent at the time about “you have to remove google play services!!!” and other stuff. Even if she is now cringe, and not a based free software purist anymore, it’s partly thanks to her that I’m now a more aware computer user.
Put it on ethics and mental health: say how proprietary platforms don’t give a damn about any of their users, and won’t think twice about abusing them (with vendor lock-in, ads, and, most importantly, causing addiction just to make you use them more so they can milk you for money)
Also, maybe explain how moderation on there is an absolute turd, with platforms often punishing users which break their ToS less, if those users make a lot of money to the platform (think influencers); unlike on decentralized platforms, where you can choose an instance where the rules satifsy you and you see the moderators working good.
I too am waiting for Invidious integration in NewPipe, not really because I don’t like the Invidious UI/UX but because I have a bug (only on mobile data, not WiFi, and only on Invidious, not on NewPipe or the YouTube webapp) where the video stops loading after a while and I have to refresh the page (and the playback doesn’t even resume at the point it stopped :c). So right now, Invidious on my smartphone is not really pleasant, it could be better.
L’industria dell’intrattenimento pornografico è infinitamente peggio di quella dell’intrattenimento classico. Capitalismo incurante dell’etica elevato al cubo.
Stavolta la merda è OnlyFans, ma tutta l’industria fa ugualmente schifo. Non dimentichiamoci di tutte le schifezze che ha fino ad ora fatto PornHub (oltre alle pratiche monopolistiche)…
Finalmente è stata aperta questa /c/, dopo un anno intero di silenzio a riguardo 🤣
