All-in-one P2P Twitter-like. Not that I dont want to do it, I have 0 coding skills.
del.icio.us but in its prime
Something like keynav for Wayland
A massive news aggregator that uses AI to be able to categorize news from all around the world in a way that allows one to filter through news articles with specific biases. This would make it easier to get a more balanced picture of world events, and would be an excellent research tool to study propaganda.
I would want a decentralized chat with e2e enceyption,has voice chat and video chat,supports 2FA,and uses Tor just like Briar
Matrix sorta does everything you said minus the TOR afaik. It’s definitely decentralized, federated, E2EE, and has voice/video chat. The 2FA is more of a verification but it’s there (not TOTP/HOTP though). You can also route the app through TOR I’d imagine!
XMPP cover most of it, plus Tor.
Duolingo but it’s maths.
Like, it teaches you all of maths from stuff as simple as small addition all the way up to complicated things like calculus and integration. It would have problem generators that keep feeding you practice questions until you can do it all from heart.
I’d call the app “Euler”, after the prolific mathematician.
Khan Academy has something similar in their iPad app.
This would be fantastic, although as a maths student myself I would want a mix of human-written and automatically-generated problems (since automatic ones are severely limited in scope and routine problems are rarely done in any quantity at high level).
If it also integrated with (an) Interactive Theorem Prover(s) to allow leaners to write proofs which are computer-checked that would be incredible.
I’ve actually been meaning to start this project myself for around 2 years but the barrier for me is web development, I’m a competent Python programmer so I reckon I have a chance with the backend but I have literally 0 ability in UI/frontend design and frontend development.
If anyone considers themselves mildy competent (post-beginner) level at frontend web development and wants to chat about this on matrix I’m all ears.
Do you know about Project Euler? https://projecteuler.net/
It contains a mixture of math and programming problems, and a similar name to the one you propose! :-)
A service like letterboxd, myanimelist, and goodreads, that unifies all these mediums and more, into one single media tracking site with individual user profiles and off that, on the side, some social-networking. As of today, there’s no site for tracking ALL media, rather only many sites focused on a single medium, each with ad-hoc databases and different UI:
If I’d just like to keep track of media I consume I can just keep one big offline spreadsheet, but what I enjoy of these services is the ability to make friends with similar tastes and being introduced to amazing art through personalized recommendations, that I otherwise would’ve never known about.
Apart of being fragmented, most of the aforementioned available media tracking services sell user’s data and are proprietary. I guess I’d like to see something like bookwyrm, but with a larger scope than just books. Maybe integration with Wikidata is the only viable solution for the herculean scope of cataloguing every media release that ever existed. Not sure how this would turn out in practice, but Wikidata could benefit too, from having legions of people adding info on their favorite obscure shows.
Social media with Maps integration. imagine walking around in a city and you can read nearby posts with gps. you can see people post about the nearby street performer, talking about work, food, and how they felt about something. after hearing all the conversations, you feel as though the world is really loud. as if you can see text bubbles around you. screaming some pointless human statements and complaints and art and questions and all the other stuff. after you see the globe, and all the other people who speaks other languages. as a person who never gotten close to anyone, you realize the world has become too surreal. a change that makes it impossible not to see the invisible world. the 7 billion screaming users are just in one screen. you’re a small cog in a system, along with everyone else, all of which has drastically changed everything for better or worse. how can you change the world now if you don’t control what happens. It’s all too advanced for humans to even make the slightest change. and If the social media is owned by one entity, we will become a rat in a box trained to behave and think in a certain way.
this social media will be created by people who stays being a good person, hopefully. thanks for listening to my ted talk, goodnight.

Hmm, honestly a new kind of decentralized social media. most of what exists now are just alternatives. if a unique social media came out of nowhere from the fediverse It would gain alot of traction. (not just because It’s decentralized but because It offers something different)
social media has gamified elements, and often times games are similar, but not quite there yet. in conclusion the easiest unique thing to make is a fully gamified social media app. we have levels instead of followers, and we gain XPs for every follow, like, comment, etc. whatever game-like elements can be added here in the concept but I would guess older people might get embarrassed if we go off a bit like making a ‘2D room user interface’ and ‘2D avatars’ or even pokemon worlds or whatever.
The technology you need for this is coming to a Fediverse near you :D
Christopher Lemmer Webber, activitypub spec co-author has plans to create Fantasary as part of Spritely Project. It is a proof-of-concept, and based on this technology all kinds of games you can imagine come within reach of any fedi developer.
I’m so excited, I’m glad that It’s finally happening.
There’s already some other game-like stuff happening on Fedi. Like Immers Space with federated 3D virtual worlds.
WHOA WHOA WHOA WHOA WHOA. ARE YOU KIDDING NOW??
I’d be really interested in seeing how something like that plays out.
doesn’t Misskey have like a virtual room thing?
never heard about it, what is that?
idk, i just saw a couple of references to it on their English-language homepage. there’s a page for it in the docs, but i can’t read Japanese
A fast and not too memory hungry selfhosted, decentralised chat (Matrix) client, with support for E2E-encryption and voice chat (Mumble?) integration.
Bonus points if it could have different types of “chat” rooms with different user interfaces, such as ones for “ephemeral” content, such as general banter and memes. These could let their content expire after a certain time and have typing indicators and so on.
An other type of room could have a more of a forum style interface, which encourages “slow” chat with more lengthy and content-rich posts. It could remove typing indicators and not automatically display new messages to encourage people writing their thoughts out in one message, instead of feeling pressured to send their messages as quickly as possible.
Basically an all in one application for communities but FLOSS. I don’t necessarily think an all-in-one community application is needed, but Discord proves that’s what people seem to want.
I’m super excited for matrix’s new server, dendrite.
A distributed, anonymous and uncensorable network like ZeroNet or Freenet with a distributed market, like OpenBazaar, built on top of it.
Distributed social network based on IPFS/IPLD.
Open source robot vacuum, or home-assistant robots in general. All the options available out there are just a bunch of proprietary, patented, cloud-controlled, privacy-invading buckets running on rented software.
A FOSS Music app that’s as good as Musicolet. I got too used to its queue system that now I can’t use any other music app that does it the more “traditional” way. Also multi-select, menus, options and search are just too well done in this app. Literally the best IMO.
The fact that it does so much and is still ad-free and mostly donation-based (iirc) also always makes me reconsider if going full-FOSS is actually worth it at all. It just feels like it was built with so much care… Similar to other non-FOSS apps I used to use.
I guess not everything that’s proprietary sucks
Ever tried emby? Hits in the good spot. it’s the open-source alternative to spotify. understandably some features of their google play app are subscription only. It isn’t cheap maintaining apps in the commercial eco-system.
Much better to recommend Jellyfin instead of Emby.
Navidrome is also an excellent music server that’s very fast and lightweight with great support from multiple mobile apps
