Thanks for sharing! I’m working on Sorcia.
But this software is not ready for that at all yet. The federation has to be done. It is still under development :)
Contributors are welcome!
Thats awesome, I thought it was a fitting project so I posted it. Good luck in the future!
That’s Okay and Thank you! I’ll post here when it is ready.
I’m not sure how you’re planning to implement the federated aspect of your service, but if you’re interested in providing ActivityPub support, I’m working on a general purpose library for it and I could use other projects’ use cases.
AP is one part of it I’m exploring, but that’s not my real concern. I’ve been seeing that AP has been adapted particularly for Mastodon’s needs recently. It works well for a social network.
But the question would be, how am I going to handle streaming or we can say bi-directional streaming when a user or multiple users forks a repository into their instance and again getting them to make a pull request to the forked/original repository on another instance. The use-case here is that what if all this happens simultaneously from many users. There are many bottlenecks here and I need a framework in order to handle this.
So, I recently came across gRPC and it looks promising for what I wanted to do. Gotta give it a try.
This is interesting nonetheless, if I gather correctly, it’s supposed to be a self-hosted Git daemon of sorts with an emphasis on federation between installations so you can discover more software?
That’s what I’ve thought at first. I need to discover more softwares through Sorcia if people started using it. So, I’d have to go this way - the federation features are not much different from GitHub or any sorts of similar centralized social git hosting service if you ask me now.
But I gotta be careful here, I don’t want to introduce too many social aspects into Sorcia. And that is the main reason I’ve started this project. So, it’s a challenge and an interesting one to explore and solve..
The federations features would apply for:
These are the main features of federation in Sorcia.
That’s a pretty cool idea, I’m happy to see you exploring it! Good luck!
I stopped working on the JS-based git engine I was developing when GitHub bought npm. Seemed like it was time to return after two years of hosting my code on Gitlab, Gitea, and Rhodecode.
However, I like how Sorcia is looking thus far.
JS-based git engine? I’d be very interested in that. Actually I did a small repo-viewer in JS back then (that cloned the repo partially in the browser). Do you have your work pushed somewhere? (quick glance at your github did not reveal anything but I probably missed it :) ).
Nope, I don’t have it publicly available. It was still in the discovery phase but it was very clean visually. I may embark upon it in the future.
Oh, maybe at least a screenshot even via a private message? :)
