honestly.
provided you trust all the other collaborators' computers / captp toolkit sufficiently protects against using file sync for trojan attacks or whatever

this might be a great way to replace something like google docs

Show thread

basically you would make a commit on any device and all the other devices would get it immediately so there would be no need to do "git push" manually

@cwebber

i just had a thought:
could we use the toolkit of captp-related-things to abstract which computer a git repo is sitting on as long as its commit history is the same

I feel like that would be incredibly useful for when I want to alternate between typing things on my server and laptop machines but it's easy to forget which one I last did something on and which one to "git push" to.

I'm in the process of making a thingy for AR game players to individually record which points are in existing games.

I hope this can one day just allow people to submit all this portal data into one gigantic public database of portals - if they want to. - while allowing each individual to 'self-host' the basic editor somehow and run it nice and fast with just their own small set of recorded data they have easy access to

obviously I can fix things by downloading and building leaflet in my Makefile
[which I already have to work around issues with javascript not being allowed to load files]

but I'd like to have the rest of my program working before I find out what new errors will almost invariably happen trying to run locally a script that's probably designed to run remotely

[sarc.]

note that Leaflet's code is minified so when it throws an error message it tells you some cryptic thing like "t is undefined" that you can't even find by going to the git repository and looking at the source.

I needed the unreadable minified version and yet the server wouldn't let me see it

Show thread

it's great that the web programming environment is so secure I can't open the 'view source' for a Leaflet script in my browser console without getting a 403 instead of source code

abbreviations / context 

DOM = Document Object Model, the hierarchy of objects you access with expressions like "link.href"

XHR = XmlHttpRequest, a standard tool in javascript to look up resources by url on the same domain but *not* on the same computer using file:///

CSP = Content-Security-Policy <meta> tag / http header

Show thread

i really almost thought i'd solved the problem of how to easily access a nearby asset in javascript in a 'well-behaved' way by putting it in a <link rel="preload">

but there's no way to just access this preloaded content from within the DOM??
the only way to access the already-cached content is sending an XHR?

I'm a bit confused why CSP even exists if there's no way to statically load resources in html vs inside JS where some ad script could siphon data & there have to be separate rules

depression; "why are the notes followers-only?" 

(wow. this is one of those posts where cutting out the last ~50 extra characters made it much more stilted than i intended.

*"i'm tired of the futility of boosting to actually enrich the quality of interactions i get instead of the quantity")

Show thread

depression; "why are the notes followers-only?" 

well. I sometimes have moods.

sometimes I get really tired of the whole concept of 'boosts' and that somebody can take a second to boost content & then forget its poster exists, maybe not even having enough followers for it to go further and the post just sputters & stops

i'm tired of the futility of boosting to actually enrich quality of interactions versus quantity

so some posts I leave just for people who really care about following asekai etc

Show thread

here i'll share raw notes from my development that I think are especially interesting

not everything in there is comprehensible outside my head, but if I'm not at a time where I can do many drawings, this is the next best thing
