(OK, so not really ALL of them… not by a long shot, actually.) 🤦‍♂️

How cool is this: watch my mouse and keyboard follow seamlessly from my desktop to my Raspberry Pi 🤓

It’s a little app called Synergy that I now have running across my Linux box, 2 Pis, Mac, and Windows clunker. (And VSCode is connected via SSH to the Pi in the video too.)

Has made working on and testing Raspberry Pi support for Site.js (sitejs.org) so much simpler :)

Meet the new Site.js (sitejs.org) build and deployment box… Yep, that’s a Raspberry Pi 3B+ :)

Given that you cannot cross-compile for ARM in Nexe yet, it’s the only device I have that can build for all four (as of later today) supported platforms (Linux x64, Linux ARM, macOS, and Windows 10).

I hope to have Site.js version 12.8.0 out this afternoon with Linux on ARM support for Raspberry Pi, etc.

Blood money is fine with us, says GitLab: Vetting non-evil customers is ‘time consuming, potentially distracting’

Anyone else seeing extra characters (purely cosmetic) being shown during completions in latest VSCode on Pop!_OS/Ubuntu 19.04 with zsh by chance?

Think it started happening one update ago.

Sadly, Switching.social was discontinued but, thanks to the efforts of @tobias, it is being reincarnated as Switching.software.

Follow here: @switchingsoftware

Site: switching.software/

Thank you, Tobias. And thank you to the original anonymous person who created and maintained it until now.

Hi Fediverse 👋

let me sum up the situation around #switchingsocial

Around September 20th, the original (anonymous) author of switching.social shut down its website and all related Social Media accounts, including mastodon 🤔

This info reached me (@tobias ) the next day via my German version @swisode .

As there hasn't been any sign of life since then, I restored the website and created this new account. Right now I'm out of spare time to work on it, but that'll change in a few weeks 🙂

@sheogorath @tobias @switchingsoftware Thanks for the background. I believe the original author is aware of how much we all appreciated/appreciate the resource.

Congrats on the effort to relaunch it, @tobias

PS. The original author may or may not be a he. They wish to remain anonymous.

@switchingsoftware Hi there, question: who are you?

Your bio says “formerly known as switching.social” but I spoke to the person who was running (and shut down – for personal reasons – switching.social) and they said they don’t know who’s running this and that they’re not involved.

Can you please clarify?

Thank you.

OK, so it gets better: the URL is actually hitting the v2 endpoint. And the dude has a crowdfunder for adding v2 support. Code’s so convoluted and full of marketing BS, I don’t even know where to begin…

My kingdom for a BS-free RFC 8555 implementation for Node.js.

There is a special place in hell for a certain dev who called ACME v1 ACME v2 in his library… I guess I know how I’m spending this week, then. Motherfucker!

(Not to mention added telemetry and an email address requirement to it, which I had to fork X modules to remove…)


@djayroma @nev @aral @maarteuh @gitlab um, baby jails. I'm judging people who put babies in jail. That's not a very hard ethical bar to clear

So this is happening, apparently ;)

The lovely Nexe folks fixed the compilation bug under Raspberry Pi recently and I woke up this morning to a successful build of Site.js (sitejs.org) on the Pi. Will test today on both the 3 and 4 with an eye towards issuing an official release :)

Very exciting… Site.js is about to become the easiest way to deploy sites on Raspberry Pi and might even make Node.js a first-class citizen in that world… ;)

@danarel @aral SourceHut seems to be fairly decent. sourcehut.org/ That was always my second choice after GitLab.

@matt @danarel @aral
Yes, they are. They are also pretty involved in upstream development of Gitea itself, ie. contributing code back to the project and such.

@ck @danarel @aral @codeberg Looks like they run on Gitea, which I was going to say is a solid alternative: gitea.io
