Alright #foss lovers, which web browser are you using on #android these days?

I just flashed #lineageos on my phone, and pausing to think about software choices.

I was previously using fennec, which worked well enough. Curious what else is out there/recommended.

Social media growth is stagnating. Are users fed up? Are users ready for #PrivacyByDefault?
...Or, dare we say, #FreedomBox?

Hi everyone! We've already got 46 updated apps that _might_ be in the next #TWIF.


What is _your_ favourite new feature or new app? And why? What annoying bug finally got squashed? Let us know before Thursday, and we'll feature it in the next edition.

Linux apps that run anywhere

Whether you're a developer or user of a application, you should be aware of - appimage.org/

any designers on here that wanna help out on a mastodon app for ios? particularly interested in working with you if youre part of an underrepresented group in tech.

boost for visibility? 😊

I often struggle with "blank page paralysis". Even though I know I can fall back to doing studies, for me studies require attention and intent to actually learn something. Earlier this year I found a subreddit called #redditgetsdrawn where people post selfies (or pet pics) and anyone can just draw them. I find it a nice medium between practice and mindless making of things with the bonus of doing something for someone else. @ me if mastodon has something similar. #digitalart #mastoart

I'm unhappy-ish with my current website setup. It's in Pelican currently, which is okay. I'd like to move it to something in a lispy language.

Haunt by @dthompson is hands down the most wonderful "flexible" site generator I've ever used. There's also Frog in Racket, but that one isn't as flexible as I'd like about a few things.

I would love to be able to use either org-mode or Racket's Scribble markup to compose blogposts though. I guess I could possibly add support for those to Haunt.

#litepub conclusions for today:

- litepub specification will be a few documents:

* litepub federation (s2s protocol)
* litepub discovery (optional; webfinger-based discovery of email@domain)
* litepub nodeinfo (optional; documentation of litepub extensions to diaspora's nodeinfo format)
* litepub JSON-LD integration (optional; discussion of using JSON-LD with litepub)
* litepub vocabulary (reference; technical discussion about the semantic litepub vocabulary, with or without JSON-LD, builds ontop of ActivityStreams 2.0 and ActivityStreams Vocabulary)

- pushing messages to inboxes: HTTP signatures are required. No other signature scheme (e.g. LDS) is required, but may be used if desired. There is no requirement to validate any other signature scheme besides HTTP signatures, even if present in the message.

- fetching activities: Bearer tokens will be supported to prove authorization to fetch non-public activities.

- LitePub messages will be distributed in a way that is compatible with JSON-LD, but JSON-LD consumers must use the URI namespaced keys format over the wire to be compliant. specific guidance on how to accomplish that coming soon.

- optional redistribution of private posts (friendica/diaspora behavior, friends-of-friends visibility scope): this builds ontop of the non-public bearer token fetch rules to allow Create activities to be redistributed referencing a foreign URI with bearer token.

- E2E encryption: waiting for W3C SocialCG to finalize E2E extensions, after which we will evaluate viability of those extensions.
maybe in 6 months, audacious 4.0 will finally be out. that will be the version which drops gtk+ support. there are a handful of features not yet ported from the gtk+ version yet.
