comments aren’t a thing with writefreely

What do you mean? You can look up any profile in the form of @blogname@writefreelyinstance.domain 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)



Is Kiki saving money to donate some to Krita developers??? 😳😳😍


Since this is all JavaScript there’s not really much to fork I think, you would need to write everything (not really a lot) from scratch

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)


The idea is nice, but it’s kind of sad that it requires JavaScript.
If it wasn’t designed for static sites with no pre-parser/compiler, this could be recreated with no JS, but just using the HTML5 <details> element and some CSS to draw boxes and realign stuff.


You gotta hate people that are different from you a lot, to be able to go as far as making a videogame mod like this, wtf


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


I’m glad a part of my devices still are micro USB-B…


I, on the other hand, can’t understand why, in a big part of the normie Internet sphere, the Metaverse has been hyped and appreciated so much - by the same people that don’t know Mozilla had basically already created the Metaverse, many years prior, with Mozilla Hubs.


I really like the UI, minimal but colourful!

The 20KB limit is just on your own server I hope, not an hard limit of the software, right?


Friendica has a follow thread feature and yes, it’s so convenient. Lemmy should have that as well imo.


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.


Well, Friendica is libre software and a federated social network. Not highly controlled.

As with plagued with uselessness… Actually, doesn’t differ from the real world. Depends on who/what you like to see (at least on fedi platforms, where you choose, not a heuristic algorithm).


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.


Nah, let’s tell them about Friendica and they will be happy


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.


That’s fine too. I do both :)


Me vibing with my Invidious instance that lets me have no ads, no tracking or proprietary scripts, and syncing of subscriptions, history, and playlist on all my devices 😌


Actually, LGPL with linking exception seems quite a good solution. I will probably use this, then. Thanks again!


Unlike Chromium though, Firefox still lets you theme a lot of stuff, including position and dimension of UI elements, via browser-level CSS.

Online, you can find many themes for many work styles, or you can make your own. I want my browser to be compact and minimalist, for example, so I made this: https://mastodon.uno/@octo/108329542312201239


Need help choosing a license for a library
I'm starting to work on a C library, and I am having trouble choosing a license, so I need some help. Keeping in mind that: - I want as many people as possible to be able to use my lib, without them worrying about license compatibility, both for libre and proprietary programs; - My lib is designed to be statically linked, so its license must allow static linking without compromises; But, also: - I want for whoever uses my lib to credit me: I think mentioning my library's name, optionally with an URL to my repo and the license text copypasted, in the final software's documentation / credit page / whatever would be enough; - I want for people that make changes to my library, and then use the modified version in their program, be it free or proprietary, to publish the modified source code of my library, under my license (but they can keep the rest of their program under whatever license they want). **What license should I choose?** I really have no idea. I think that if I only cared about the first 3 points, I could choose MIT, but considering the last one?
