something something open source - apprentice, spells, wizard && make love not war
Thanks for the post but this is a no go for me, will not recommend this to friends. From their FAQ :
Sunbird is not open source. Some of the messaging community believe that open source is more secure, it is our view that it is not. The more visibility there is into the infrastructure and code, the easier it is to penetrate it.
We are currently undergoing a third party audit (not Danny’s other company), that will validate our security, encryption and data policies.
Ivory is getting a warm welcome on Mastodon, but also this open source iOS app for Mastodon got some thumbs up : https://github.com/Dimillian/IceCubesApp
Thanks all for the replies (I see one comment here on this instance, but twelve when I look at lemmy.ml). Nice to see more Friendica here!
If Bash is your default shell, you can install Fish to try its superb auto suggestions and the tab key, while leaving Bash as your default shell. These auto suggestions do not only work for your command line history but also for file names even when your first letters you type are in different order in the file name (For example, I know that I want to edit a file with the word work in it and start typing the word work and press tab key, but it turns out that the word does start instead with the word personal, Fish is still able to suggest the real file name to edit : personal_and_work_todo.txt). Fish has saved me a lot of typing time. And if you need Bash for a moment (Fish will complain about certain * usage), then temporarily exiting Fish or typing bash is an option.
After installing Fish, run the fish_config command to configure it via a local session in your web browser.
+1 for Cinny. Worth trying is also https://fluffychat.im
Usage: apx [command]
They also send Delete messages to any server they know about, even if that server isn’t an AP server and has no relationship with the originating server. My website is not an ActivityPub server, but i get thousands of spam messages from mastodon servers a day. I’ve filed two different issues related to that but neither of them has received much attention (and none from garg).
Ouch :( Are Pleroma, Akkoma and others doing a much better job at this ?
Have not tried it myself. Nice that there’s a bin package in AUR. I see that Akkoma has IRC and Discourse community channels : https://docs.akkoma.dev/stable/
Digging via https://alternativeto.net/software/reddit/?license=opensource&p=1 Here’s some of the 55 results :
Checking their Gitlab description it looks like you are right. The OP mentioned Reddit in the post title though, and Reddit is “still” not federated ;-) Using https://fediverse.party I found these as well :
Interesting topic in my opinion. https://datadetoxkit.org
Today I noticed this : https://blacktwitter.io/about Hopefully that will help more Black people to move away from Twitter
All we can do is keep trying to make a place that is useful enough and iteratively more comfortable. If we care about these people, and the concept of decentralized freedom.for all. And we need to seriously listen and consider, and maybe even compromise, as the linked article has tried to do.
Thanks for your insightful comment
I also like to see Twitter go down and dissappear. The criticism about Mastodon by Black people has indeed been seen before, and I do not understand it. They find the quote reply very important, but some journalists also wrote that they think they cannot do without it. In reply to that I saw this web link on Mastodon : https://github.com/mastodon/mastodon/issues/20673 (a long read) which shows that Mastodon no longer does not want to have the same feature as on Twitter but is looking at a more safe alternative.
Thanks for mentioning Ktistec, that looks like a neat one user Mastodon instance alternative.
The web link is for the main Teddit instance, and I was too lazy or too much in a rush to change the Lemmy auto suggestion for the post title. Arch, btw, the devs of Lemmy did post AMA on Reddit : https://teddit.net/r/rust/comments/gukx09/we_are_the_devs_behind_lemmy_an_open_source/ Sometimes it is difficult to avoid reading Reddit. The author of qutebrowser used Reddit to blog about its 9th birthday 6 days ago :( https://teddit.net/r/qutebrowser/comments/zm0x5c/happy_9th_birthday_qutebrowser/
Yes, even the EU Commission believes in John : https://social.network.europa.eu/@EU_Commission/109545164524227700
The John Mastodon meme started when some media website made a mistake about the Join Mastodon Twitter account. https://boingboing.net/2022/12/18/mastodon-users-embrace-columnists-funny-error-about-a-fictitious-john-mastodon.html
https://journa.host/about (more than 2k users) Meanwhile the banning of Twitter accounts of journalists continued : https://mastodon.social/@taylorlorenz/109535608515477675
Not an answer to your question but you can follow Mastodon users via RSS in your RSS feed reader.
In general staying away from caffeine, and use Redshift software on the computer screen. Then when I can’t sleep, listening to relaxing piano music or Binaural Beats (F-Droid app) and taking a little bit of CBD oil sometimes works wonders for me.
Someone like Micah Lee (Who just got banned on Twitter) has been on Mastodon for longer. Not only a journalist but also creator of various open source software like Tor Browser launcher and Onionshare. Besides that, I guess sometimes it can be useful to send a Direct Message to a journalist rather than trying to phone or write them.
It would have been nice to have a bit more information:
does it have a frontend? If so what does it look like? What does “somewhat compatible with mastodon” mean? Which features are working?
This software is Work in progress, found it here in the comments : https://lobste.rs/s/xvvjza/playing_with_activitypub#c_spnt25
The page shows what works and what does not work. I think it is similar as GoToSocial, having no front end.
Disroot has custom domain option if you pay : https://disroot.org/en/services/email If your account request gets approved you will have XMPP, Nextcloud and email account. Approval can take some time as Disroot is volunteer based. You can interact with them via the XMPP Community chat, which is also bridged to IRC and Matrix I believe.
The story continues with more comments : https://lobste.rs/s/cqiixy/raspberry_pi_brags_about_hiring showing that it also continues on Twitter like Nitter here (is there a Nitter redirect like for Invidious?) https://nitter.namazso.eu/Raspberry_Pi/status/1600761840367448064
On Mastodon a spike in posts and comments
