I tried fossil for a bit and it seems extremely promising, aside from not being able to purge “asfgs” commits when trying to text CI. But as you said, using something other than git cuts you off from the larger ecosystem.
I tried Fossil on a whim for a small project three years ago and adored it so much that I’ve used it for several larger ones since. It solves a lot of problems in a very small footprint.
When the CI/CD config is stored in a yaml and the only way to see if I set it up write is to commit and push
Is it possible to get a data dump of all of Lobsters comments/links/threads? Would be interesting to do some data science on it.
No, but @pushcx will run queries for you: https://lobste.rs/about#transparency
Out of curiosity, what is the reasoning behind keeping this data private instead of publicly open to all?
Does Google get to fully index lobsters?
Users haven’t agreed to their comments being reused.
The 800 pound gorilla indexes whatever it would like to. We’ve also been indexed by ArchiveTeam, Archive.org, and many hobbyists. There’s some mild rate-limiting in place, and we have trivially predictable URLs with
.json endpoints on many.
Gotcha, this is a considerate policy that I can certainly appreciate. Thank you kindly for explaining.
There is apparently a Mac contender: https://shrugs.app/
Though it seems pretty crap in comparison to RC.
Not a native Mac app; you’d lose a lot of native features. Qt is better than Electron, but not by much.
Oh, you can integrate the features - it just takes a lot of work to do so, moreso than a native app. What’s more annoying is all the annoying subtleties, everything from editing controls to menu bar behaviour.
How does this compare to Magic Wormhole?
Firefox Send is “async”. The file is uploaded first, then the server “buffers” it until the downloader comes by. This enables a nicer workflow but has some downsides (mostly server costs).
Magic Wormhole is Peer-to-Peer which removes the need for size limits and can have lower end-to-end latency and higher performance if both ends have a good connection (although it also means that both ends have to suffer if one end has a bad connection). But both users need to be online at the same time.
Wormhole is single-use, whereas Send can be accessed by several people without generating a new link.
Wish this was visible on Android. Even rotating sideways cuts off past the margin.
What about using Redbean?
Given that it’s not part of the base system I’d assume it’s not on topic.
Exactly. I find Redbean quite interesting in principle and starred it on Github a while ago but it never quite seems like what I need.
