Do you have Codeberg account?

codeberg.org

Please boost if you are a programmer.

Hi @alcinnz, thanks for boosting, you are the first programmer.

Wow, Man, @codeberg helped boosting my post about Codeberg. This feels truly amazing.

Hi my friend @Zergling_man, thanks for boosting my post once again. Let's support .

This poll above is 1 day left with 900 people already participating and still counting.

It is about and as a solution.

Would you join us to boost and reshare? Please share your opinion if you don't mind.

Thank you.

One hour left and it's just a few to 1000 people participating.

If you are a programmer, please participate in the poll above.

It's about and as a solution.

Boosts are highly appreciated.

@ademalsasa No account, but I'm intending to set up a gitea instance before I do any personal coding.

@ademalsasa

I opted to run my own Gitea instance, so I don't. But I like Gitea, so far.

I have some special needs, or from another perspective, intend to seriously strain the software.

I felt it would be a little abusive to treat a free public resource like Codeberg that way. I also had to set some NGINX and Gitea parameters to handle larger files without choking.

Works, though. So far, anyway. My instance can handle multi-gigabyte blobs, as needed for my animation production files.

@TerryHancock I've got a very deep insight and experience here. Thank you, Sir, for sharing such valuable thing.

@ademalsasa Yes, I do. And I am also a paying member of Codeberg e.V., the association running the show. The 48€/year I used to spend on GitHub now go to them.

@ademalsasa It wasn't really an emotional thing. I like Gitea, Codeberg does a fantastic job, IMHO, and I prefer to pay for good service :) I hope many more not only start using Codeberg but also help them grow by donating time or money :)

@ademalsasa I've been having a Codeberg account for more than two years now but I am not a programmer, so won't boost. (git, issue tracking, pages etc. is useful for other tasks as well, e.g. for editing and publishing things on the web.)

@acka47 hello, I am also having Codeberg account since its first inception and am not a programmer also. Thanks for participating!

@ademalsasa I don't have public open source projects. As soon as that changes I know where to go 😅

@carce nice to hear that. Please keep your free software development.

@ademalsasa

I have an @fdroidorg and @codeberg exhibition since august 2020 in berlin

and in september in dresden.

So - i ❤️ #fdroid and #codeberg

@ademalsasa

Thank you for the praise.

(There are also devs who simply delete all oversettings and I find that really annoying).

So thank you very much for your praise.

@ademalsasa I can't load context for this post, so I can't tell if someone has already said this... Any centralised service will meet the same fate. I think codeberg is equally worthless. Run your own git server.
Gitea's federation (pretty close!) will solve many of the related issues, but then, so does email patch/ticket systems. (Captain Arepa can tell you *all about* those!)
And, of course, reminder that git can run over ssh. You don't need anything fancy. Keep things simple, justify why complexity is necessary.

@ademalsasa Nah.

I ran a private gitea instance for a bit, but wasn't a fan. SourceHut better fits my tastes.

I'm glad that CodeBerg/Gitea exist for the people who prefer it, but it's not for me.

@pixelherodev What are the most notable difference between the two platforms?

@ChrisWere Gitea had most of the same issues I had with GitHub; it seemed too cloney. Moreover, gitea was heavily dependent on JavaScript, which I have blocked by default on most devices, and is completely unsupported by the rest. sr.ht works flawlessly with mothra, netsurf, and w3m. Gitea won't even let me *look* at *other people's repos* in such an environment!

gitea also has antisocial misfeatures ala GitHub.

Gitea is a better GitHub, and that's not a compliment.

Primarily the UI, but also the social stuff (stars), the not-actually-forks, the not-actually-pull-requests, the activity trackers, the... huh. Does *Github* even have a followers systeM?? Yep. Yes, it does, I had to check. >_>

So, yeah. It has a lot of things I dislike, its performance is bad (probably as a result of all the misfeatures and the computation needed to support them), and it requires JS.

What's to like?

@juliobiason

I'd love to, but unfortunately, the comment box is unusable on mobile.

@ademalsasa Ironically, I have just recently signed up to codeberg a few minutes ago. Still learning how to use it, but looking great so far.

@blenderdumbass hello, thanks for sharing Notabug.org. I'm also at Notabug, my friend, and even since long before Codeberg. Please share more.

@arcade thanks for sharing Sourcehut. I'm at Sourcehut too, my friend.

Just discovered this, sounds great as an alternative to github. I'm definetly giving this a go.

@ademalsasa I still have a GitHub account, but don't use it anymore. My (really small) projects are now self hosted (git + gitweb).
