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 :-)
@alatiera weird question: is it possible (from a noobs (ie "me") POV to open an existing GNOME section (Networkmanager, Openvpn settings) in Glade to edit that directly?
(sry for singling you out, you where the first GNOME dev I found :) )

We would like to ask you again to help us out and use our tiny feedback tool: #36c3 – Have your say https://events.ccc.de/2019/09/20/36c3-have-your-say/ (And please, refrain from any blockchain jokes.)
Translating Chef's spin
"It’s not about the $100,000, it’s about decisions we’ve made to engage the government." [because future contracts would be worth far more?]
"that’s the decision that we made as a leadership team" [so shut up about it, worker bees?]
"I certainly don’t want to be viewed as I’m taking a strong stand in support of ICE" [He'd rather just support them without being noticed?]
Regardless of what one things about the actual issue, this is a terrible writing style for a CEO.
Translating Chef's spin
So Chef's CEO has published a blog post regarding the current controversy re their U.S. Gov contracts & honestly it's among the worst attempts at a positive spin I've ever seen,
"For some portion of the community, and some portion of our company, this is a super, super-charged lightning rod..." [but not him?]
"I think our challenge as leadership right now is how do we collectively navigate through times like this" [so that we don't face backslash?]
@MatejLach one of the new offenders are Electron and other cross-platform apps that create prominent non-hidden directories like Applications or their subdirectories in Documents to keep their service files. Another reminder that "cross-platform" means "out of place on all platforms".
systemd is not an init system, it's a system manager designed to be useful way beyond simply bringing the system up.
2.) Linux home directory handling is currently a mess. Any random app can ignore XDG conventions, making it hard to be sure that a simple rsync of home is sufficient i.e. it would be working as expected if you were forced to nuke your system. From my experience, it doesn't work particularly well for backing up the configs of many programs as they write to places like /etc
The reactions to systemd-homed have predictably been, "soon there's going to be a word processor in #systemd", without these people realizing that:
1.) systemd is NOT a single binary, it's a project, an ecosystem of utilities. That's like saying to GNU; Why is there wget? I want GNU to compile stuff with GCC, why is GNU nano a thing?
Of course the goal of the GNU Project is to produce everything needed to have a libre OS - the goal of systemd is to produce everything needed to manage this OS.
How IPFS works. Nice description imo
Having seen the accusations against RMS & the dishonest misquotes of him, (which in full context don't defend Epstein at all), I find the push for his resignation disgraceful.
I am the first to admit that #RMS could sometimes be less than eloquent, however this isn't really the case here, it's just a straight up smear, this really sums it up:
If it's this easy to blacklist someone, how long before Bernie Sanders would be forced out, if he actually won?
Just published another part of my gestures overview: https://blogs.gnome.org/alexm/2019/09/15/gnome-and-gestures-part-2-hdyleaflet/
(No, it's not about paginator yet)
@klaatu listing individual features misses the point; the idea is that if the software you use every day can't do "view source" on any command you run, it's defective. if you can't edit the source and see the effects of your change immediately: also really missing the point of software.
#emacs only happens to be the most widespread instance of this philosophy being applied, and the one with the richest history and active community.
Hi there! I am a free software developer. I enjoy working on useful software, as well as advocating for software freedom and the use of open standards, promoting data ownership, decentralization and privacy. If this is important to you, I may be worth following. If you like Go, Rust, or Swift, it may be worth following me as well. Besides computing, I enjoy metal, a good read and occasionally some gaming, (not much time for that these days).
