OMG GUI development sucks! I've read a few tutorials for different frameworks, and it looks like the situation is just as shit as it was ten years ago.
- Size of elements is usually defined in pixels, disregarding user set preferences in the system.
- Resizing is a f***ing headache.
- Getting things where you want them is pretty difficult.
- The only easier option seems to be to always load a bloated chromium instance in order to build your GUI on HTML+CSS+JS...

Anyone knows of a simpler way?

Oh, yeah! Fixed up nginx conf and letsencrypt for :D

You won't get anything intelligible there atm, but that's by design. Or really by lack of design. I.e. I'll get to it sooner or later :D

Random thought: What's the state of GUI app development on Linux (or cross platform) these days? Is Electron the only way to go, or is there some easier, more lightweight, more elegant, or more liked by you, toolkit?

Just registered, which will point to my in-development server sometime in the near future.

I mean. Whenever I get to it :D

PL politics, women's rights, PLEASE boost 

The Constitutional Court of Poland (which includes illegally appointed judges) just made a ruling regarding abortion law.

Abortion in PL is now illegal for p. much ANY reason. Women will be forced to give birth not just to children that result from rape. It'll actually be illegal to abort a foetus without lungs or a brain. No, this is not an exaggeration.

This is a EU country in 2020. Difficult to imagine, right?

Please boost to make this widely known.

What do we *need* to live a decent life? Probably a lot less than I currently have...

Could my family of five live in a 50m2 house? Probably. Could we manage with only one computer and one phone? Uhm...

"Decent Living Standards: Material Prerequisites for Human Wellbeing"

My SO and I have discussed well-being and lifestyle a lot lately. Words like "enough" and "sufficient" are common in those discussions.

I'm going to have a look at what science has to say about The Sufficiently Good Life:

Does anyone know about a good/simple -LD lib for , for usage?

Opinion: National governments should run publicly funded social networks, based on open standards that guarantee interoperability between them and private actors.

@cj @cwebber I see OCAP thrown around, but my google fu only gets me halfway through the acronym. Object Capability... Application Programming?

I actually got to code a bit this weekend! Another commit added to my server:

The documentation in the README is heftier than the actual added code, but hey. It's supposed to be a learning resource :D

I'm reading about HTTP signatures in AP, and it strikes me as weird that 1) each actor has its own certificate, instead of using one for the sending server, 2) the public certificate for verification is included in the post -- doesn't that mean a malicious sender can just point to whatever certificate *they* used to sign a post? What extents do receiving AP servers usually go to to verify a message?

I'm thinking about 2.0, and wondering what social media *should* be like.
I'm thinking about that while writing a public toot and having only a handful of followers, not knowing if anyone of them is interested in this topic. That's got to be the modern equivalent of shouting in the woods.

Hey, all! I'm a devops engineer/sysadmin, ttrpg/pbp gamer, parent, spouse, and part-time cat's slave. I'm also a bit artsy/crafty. Lately I'm trying to get into web dev, hoping to build a pretty minimal ActivityPub server with a web interface. Although I've done dev work before, web is mostly new to me.
I'll try to get somewhere, and share my thoughts and woes along the way here :D

For people who care about, support, or build Free, Libre, and Open Source Software (FLOSS).
