@aral I missed your stream today but watched the recorded version. It's pretty interesting what you guys are striving to achieve.
@matharoo Thanks. It feels good to be starting to make progress again after a frustrating few weeks :)
@aral About the question from Paulo for getting it to more users - people generally don't like to type commands (except for some us). I was thinking if there was an web UI to:
- register for a vps
- pay for the vps
- install Site.js/Place with 1 click
- when logged in can let the user manage content and everything
- optionally offer to donate
Or if that's too centralized, what about a GUI program that can do the above? Maybe we can have API in Site.js/Place that can help in that.
@adnan360 That’s exactly what we’re building with Basil (the small web hosting client) and what will be running at small-web.org. If you can, join the S’update live stream I’m about to do at https://ar.al (about to announce it) where I’m going to talk about it (or you can catch the recording later) :) It’ll also be free and open source and I hope others will host at other domains also. Right now, it’s not even ready for other devs. Then it’ll go devs → everyone :)
