I decided to start sharing parts of #fediQuest as they become mature.
Today, I am releasing a #Golang library for decoding ActivityStreams 2.0 objects into native Go objects and also for encoding Go objects into ActivityStreams 2.0 JSON objects.
The usage is your typical Go Marshal/Unmarshal, (see tests for examples).
The license is copyleft (AGPLv3).
Your feedback (and a star) are welcome :-)
Announcing LearnAwesome.org - an open-source, ActivityPub-compliant alternative to GoodReads, Coursera etc.
The goal is to build humanity's universal learning map by tagging learning resources with rich metadata such as topics, format, length, cost etc. There's a companion browser extension, a mobile app and peer-groups for project-based learning, mentored by selected experts and more.
The webapp is built with Ruby, Rails and PostgreSQL. Inviting devs: https://github.com/learn-awesome/learn

The extraordinarily useful, popular, and necessary browser privacy and security extension has been archived and set read-only.

Overall, my recommendation would be:
If you want Phosh shell, go with #Mobian first or if you want full disk encryption then #postmarketOS but be ready to use a shell script to trigger deep sleep, because only #systemd can handle it properly atm and pmOS doesn't use it.
If you want Plasma Mobile, I'd suggest you wait until at least the next release when the pmOS implementation is supposed to get better, if you cannot wait there's the Manjaro Plasma builds.
Also, give #Sxmo a try, it's fun.
After initially being skeptical, I can honestly see myself using Sxmo, my only concern really would be with its reliance on the hardware buttons of the #PinePhone which do not feel built with the intention of being used constantly, so them being the primary method of interaction with the UI may not have been the wisest choice.
Other than that, am impressed with it.
Also, it's pretty much the only UI where deep sleep works flawlessly without having to echo to /sys...
Sxmo is basically a #dwm config for the PinePhone with some additional tooling to make it recognize touchscreen gestures and handle rapid successive key presses in order to map more functionality on to the 3 HW buttons of the PinePhone than they would normally be able to.
This feels the most old-school UNIXy and power user UI
For #KDE Plasma Mobile, there's the KDE Neon builds for the #PinePhone, however they feel less functional than the Manjaro Plasma builds, specifically when it comes to turning of the screen, going to sleep, waking up and also the Neon builds seem more prone to freezes.
That being said, it is hard to recommend a Manjaro build after all the drama they've been involved in and how they treat upstream.
Plasma also has problems bringing up the keyboard in GTK apps, so I'd wait for a while re KDE.
#postmarketOS in particular shines with its mobile friendly #Firefox config that also works with non-ESR versions, but it's held back by #AlpineLinux insisting on not using #systemd and the fact that #OpenRC just can't handle deep CRUST sleep properly, which is not a problem on say #Mobian.
#Mobian however currently relies on Firefox ESR, rather than the latest stable version, however it does have the most mobile parches to make apps usable on the small screen, including for Geary.
Some observations regarding what DE works best on which distro for the #PinePhone:
In particular #Geary would be a good candidate since every modern smartphone needs a good email client in its arsenal.

Surprise! I just released Fragments 1.5 🥳
It's now even sexier - thanks to libhandy 1.0! It also includes additional features like desktop notifications.
#Flathub build will be available very soon!
The big surprise here is how long it took Facebook to say "Hold my beer" after Google Glass
@MatejLach I have a hard time hearing in crowded places like bars. Want the tech, but anything from FB is gonna be a no from me
