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 :-)

Exasperated by Qt's buggy/janky built-in platform agnostic style engine, for my commercial software project ( https://cancel.fm/ripcord/ ), I wrote a new Qt style engine, Phantom, and also released it as open source: https://github.com/randrew/phantomstyle
The open source KeePassXC project has released version 2.6.0, which uses the Phantom code for their new cross-platform theme: https://keepassxc.org/blog/2020-07-07-2.6.0-released/

This is a really cool guide on setting up your own Jitsi server. It really doesn't look that difficult. I like the way NotS explains the ins-and-outs of the process, very useful and interesting.
