    Seems like a lot more hassle than just using Bitwarden, be it cloud, or self-hosted. especially on mobile. Plus even if not as secure, 2FA in bitwarden is great

      It’s more initial setup, but after that point depending upon your workflow it can be less hassle. In my case I’ve got it hooked up with fzf in my TWM so it’s more efficient than any proprietary UI could ever be. And long term there’s less hassle in using standard, multipurpose, open source tools like gpg and git.

      1. 5

        Oh, I would be totally onboard, but since I use passwords and 2fa on mobile a lot, not having the autofill capabilities on that app the article linked is a bit of a hinderance, along with other niceties. For my usecases, bitwarden is open source enough to satisfy that.

        But if I think about it, I can see the benefit in the simplicity of this workflow if you don’t need the features I depend on, or they extra app switching doesn’t bother you.

        I tried pass a long time ago, probably around when it first came out and liked it, just mobile was always a sticking point, and syncing everything. I mean thats solved with stuff like Seafile, Nextcloud, dropbox, syncthing, rsync, etc. But it being built into what I am using is just a time saver.

        I will also admit hat I am not as privacy-conscious as many are.

          Hi, Android Password Store maintainer here. The app does support Autofill, and does it rather well (even if I say so myself).

          I assume the author is on a very old Android version which doesn’t have native Autofill capabilities. The mention of overlays probably is about System Alert Windows, which apps used pre-Android 8.0 to present Autofill UIs. The accessibility and clipboard backed implementation that was used before native Autofill is extremely buggy and unsafe, so we’ve opted to completely remove it in our development branch.

          Another possibility is that they accidentally installed our legacy version that hasn’t been updated in a couple years, and was marked as archived on F-Droid but I presume stays accessible even today. Here’s the currently maintained version.

          If neither of them are true /u/rhardih, please email me at aps@msfjarvis.dev with some info about your phone and Android version, and I’d love to sort this out :)

          1. 4

            Hi, this was totally a blunder on my part. I didn’t see it showing up in the Autofill menu next to LastPass and didn’t really think about it more than that, because I personally didn’t mind having to copy paste a bit.

            I’m guessing it’s disabled by default, because it’s necessary to trigger the “Auto-fill service” system settings page when enabling, in order to choose Password Store as default.

            I’m sorry for the misunderstanding. I’ve updated the post with a correction.

            1. 3

              Thanks for the prompt correction! We recommend users to enable Autofill from within the app since it allows us to present each currently installed browser’s Autofill support level upfront, so that users can adjust their expectations. This was mostly necessary back when Chromium-based browsers had absolutely terrible Autofill support, but is slightly less useful now that all the patches my co-maintainer has been pushing to Chromium have reached the stable channel with Chrome 89.

            2. 2

              Oh, cool, thank you for clarifying that and thank you for working on the app. I know it might not be for some, but it definitely solves a need for many, and I respect that and appreciate your efforts on the app.

              I might check it out for work related stuff.

              1. 2

                Thanks a lot for your kind words :)

        2. 2

          It isnt. I host my password store on a git directory on my server and just use that to keep it updated on my phone and anything else. I also use rofi so having pass-otp and rofi-pass really makes it great on my desktop for example. The android app also just works with otp codes.

          1. 1

            I’m also in favour of a more seamless setup and am heading towards Bitwarden setup myself, albeit slowly.

            Recently, I’ve been made aware of a 3rd-party command line client for Bitwarden - rbw - it lacks some basic functionality, i.e. one can only edit the pass{word,phrase}, but it’s quite usable otherwise.

          1. 2

            I own 5 mechanical keyboards, but the one I’m using right now is a custom. DZ60 v2 w/ novelkey creams (lubed), polycarbonate plate and an aluminium case.

            1. 3

              Changing from i3 to bspwm, it’s been too long and I’m already noticing that bspwm is faster, it’s kind of insane. I am also thinking about moving my whole system to nixos, probably unsurprisingly because of the posts here. I’ve actually installed it on my laptop and its that good that it’s making me consider it.

              I’m also getting bored of the fact that I’ve never programmed anything good, so I want to try and think of something useful to make.

              1. 1

                I use pass with git on my personal server and it works wonders and it’s like a god send for me. I have used bitwarden in the past amongst many others though and would reccomend bitwarden to anyone that isn’t technically savvy or just wants a ready to go password manager.

                I’ve heard good things about 1password though, but never used it.

                    My site is at: https://josm.site

                    I do need to re-do the whole thing to be honest, but there we are. It’s basically a bunch of links.

                    1. 2

                      Not responsive or mobile friendly. On iPhone X, initial page load looked empty, with just a bit of the centered image at the right edge of the screen. I scrolled a bit to bring it into view.

                      You should consider trying to make your widths, etc max-width.

                      1. 1

                        Yeaaah, it’s really not optimized for anything tbh, I’m going to re-do everything.

                        Thanks for the feedback!

                      2. 1

                        Yea, gotta use some of that “above the fold” space. Not so good on mobile either.

                        1. 2

                          Indeed, definitely gonna have to sort that out. Especially mobile because I haven’t even done anything on that front.

                      1. 16

                        Finding my will to live. Not in a serious sense, more as in it’s boring not finding interest in everything you used to do anymore.

                            Seconded – heck, even if you think things are going pretty good, if you can afford it, a check in with a therapist is great preventative maintenance. I know that since I started regularly seeing a therapist I have seen marked improvement in my experience of life. I’m happier, more productive, and more resilient to shit going haywire.

                          2. 5

                            might be an opportunity to revisit really old hobbies that you let go before. Got back into some PC gaming the past couple months after a couple years away and it feels good to be back

                            1. 2

                              I feel the same way between personal projects. For me, it always help to pick up a good fiction book and just relax for a couple of days.

                                                Rust or any language that is closer to the “metal”. I’m a web dev so these things scare me a little bit.

                                                1. 7

                                                  Question for the group. If you use Stylus (or used to use Stylish), what do you use it for?

                                                  I headed over the the userstyles.org site and most of the styles seem to be “dark themes” or other cosmetic changes like changing the background of a site. Are there more practical uses of the extension? Can it modify HTML or Javascript (where the real power would be), or is it CSS only?

                                                  1. 27

                                                    other cosmetic changes like changing the background of a site

                                                    You call it cosmetic changes, other people call it accessibility.

                                                    1. 7

                                                      I use it to tweak the layout of some of the sites I use, like moving a fixed top navbar to the side, and making it smaller. Or making narrow columns wider. Small stuff like that, which make the browsing experience much more bearable. I rarely use the social or sharing aspects of it. I haven’t found anything useful there, and I’m not sharing my tweaks either, because they’re very personal anyway.

                                                      I rarely use it to hide things, my adblocker can do that more conveniently indeed.

                                                      1. 6

                                                        I apply a style of body { max-width: 800px; } on a few blogs that weren’t designed with wide browser windows in mind—they spill text across the entire width of the screen, which makes them really hard to read. (You could use your browser’s “reading mode” to fix this, too, but this CSS change usually does the job without breaking any layouts.)

                                                        1. 4

                                                          Now that I’ve started using Dark Reader, I use Stylus for well-made, site-specific dark themes. Previously I was using the Gruvbox Dark Everywhere userstyle, but its shotgun approach leaves much to be desired. Beware: Dark Reader has some major performance issues on Firefox.

                                                          Edit: My installed themes (which I enable along with Dark Reader after sunset): https://ptpb.pw/nUrG.png

                                                          Edit 2: Also I enable the Firefox and Tree Style Tabs dark themes. This really needs to get more streamlined.

                                                          Edit 3: And then I get to enable dark/night mode on sites that support it natively, one-by-one as I visit them. Sigh.

                                                          1. 2

                                                            Man, Dark Reader is great. Thanks for bringing my attention to that.

                                                            1. 1

                                                              Funny that you mention this. I don’t often long for the days when I had a CSS styling addon installed, but exactly this Dark Reader page made me bob my head back 20cm. That page seems to be made for a mobile phone or tablet screen, not a 27” monitor. Wow.

                                                            2. 3

                                                                I like to use it to remove ads in core apps I use. I’d like to share the styles I create with others who use those apps. I use the free version of toggl, and they have a persistent, animated thing in the bottom-right corner that tells me the benefits of “going pro”. I just made a stylish thing to display: none the element which matches that rule. It’s great.

                                                                1. 1

                                                                  1. 1

                                                                2. 3

                                                                  1. 2

                                                                    1. 1

                                                                      1. 1

Another forum I visit regularly now is ad free and doesn’t waste a bunch of whitespace where these were removed. I created an ironic one for hiding the ads for stylish for android on userstyles.org… :D Also, my day job involves using a console that has a lot of useless (to me) menu items - bye bye.

                                                                        1. 1

                                                                            1. 1

                                                                              1. 1

                                                                            2. 1

                                                                            1. 2

I also might be re-writing a discord bot because it’s a dumb bot as of right now and it’s a good way to learn for me.

                                                                              1. 2

                                                                                I’m skeptical though.

                                                                                1. 7

                                                                                  Individual rationality often appears to have no bearing on corporate level actions at all.

                                                                                  1. 1

                                                                                    Exactly, that’s what I said to her.

                                                                                    1. 1

                                                                                      But bringing important parts of your supply chain in house does make sense, and you don’t destroy your supplier when you do that

                                                                                    2. 2

                                                                                      It’s always counter intuitive to ruin things. But the innovation doesn’t stop.

                                                                                    1. 2

                                                                                      Acer C720. I kinda want a thinkpad carbon x1 though.
