I decided to start sharing parts of as they become mature.

Today, I am releasing a library for decoding ActivityStreams 2.0 objects into native Go objects and also for encoding Go objects into ActivityStreams 2.0 JSON objects.

Repo: github.com/MatejLach/astreams

The usage is your typical Go Marshal/Unmarshal, (see tests for examples).

The license is copyleft (AGPLv3).

Your feedback (and a star) are welcome :-)

Windows and MacOS have gone from "what is internet?" to "why aren't you on the internet right *now*?!"

@aral let’s keep the conversation constructive and leave irony out please.

Epiphany holds mostly because of the efforts of Igalia, which makes all the heavy lifting to allow WebKit to be used with GTK.

The two maintainers of Epiphany are volunteers. The foundation pays exactly 0€ to people working on epiphany.

The foundation pays only one developer on GTK, and someone to maintain Flathub.

By spreading false information on alternatives you are actually reinforcing Google’s monopoly.

@aral @exalm again, the Foundation funds exactly 0€ of Epiphany and has no saying over it. Please don’t be of bad faith to prove a point.

Let’s be constructive together. Harming alternatives is reinforcing the monopolies

Programming language where primitive types are passed by reference and compound types are passed by value

Has the javascript ecosystem solved ES6 modules "just working" everywhere yet?

Or am I going to have to play bundler games? sigh

don't read if you're a 'centrist' 

An avalanche of shitty centrist takes on Palestine on the bird side...some things never change.

If I'd like to create a static page that updates content once a day by fetching rss feeds, what would you advice me to read to get started?

New map app recommendation: Organic Maps - organicmaps.app/ - Available for Android and iOS. It is a privacy preserving Maps.Me fork providing users with beautiful vector tiles for offline maps and navigation. This is my favourite way for using #OpenStreetMap on a smartphone!

One of my favorite handheld game systems of all time, the GP2X F100.

It's not just great because it's really good at emulating early systems (which it is), but because of the great, original homebrew stuff that came out for it. Many of these games are -really good!

The Gnome-Control-Center (aka g-c-c, aka "the settings app") is a pretty central piece of mobian. In our unstable distribution we have now upgraded it from 3.36 to 3.38, which fixes a whole bunch of bugs. (the now working wifi-hotspot via GUI is my personal favorite). Thanks to all contributors!

Starmer sacking anyone but himself over the election results is treated much differently in the media than Corbyn's much better showing, to say nothing of the fact Starmer never had to defend himself against supporting all manner of nasty things on a weekly basis, as supposedly Corbyn did.

Starmer's loss was entirely predictable. The guy basically agreed with BoJo 99% of the time, so why would anyone go for the 'diet' option in Starmer, when they can just as well get the real thing?

Any #FootTerminal users out there running it under KDE/Plasma?

Looking for testers of a performance improving PR: codeberg.org/dnkl/foot/pulls/4

The task would be to verify that a) it actually works (i.e. no rendering glitches, at least no more than usual 😂 ), and b) it improves performance.

Zuck is going to do more media appearances, because if there's one thing the guy is known for it's charisma and appearing human. Not.

Last Thursday we demonstrated #ActivityPub to European & national administrations with a live install & demonstration of #peertube and #mastodon by @how for the European Data Protection Supervisor (which aims to join the fediverse soon!). In case you missed it, here is the recording -> conf.tube/videos/watch/e4cc80b From the first install commands to sharing videos, moderating & comments in a little more than half an hour :amazing: 🤩
