Durante la pestilenza, per sentirmi meno solo, ho inventato un amico immaginario al quale parlare. Si chiama Vanvera.

# 1.0 !! 🥳 🎉

TIL* about Project Gemini
"Gemini is a new, collaboratively designed internet protocol, which explores the space inbetween gopher and the web, striving to address (perceived) limitations of one while avoiding the (undeniable) pitfalls of the other."

Found about it via Castor ( ), a graphical gemini (+ gopher and finger) browser, written in # / # , which I found thanks to the "Featured projects" list of Sourcehut Hub ( read more here )

So, obviously, I neeeeded a # browser on my # phone.

It's not yet here, but while experimenting I ended up writing a desktop browser for # with # and # which I called Alrisha :

At this point I neeeeeeeeed a presence on the 'gemini space'. But I'm not inclined to maintain it by hand. It will become stale quickly, I'm sure.

So I'm on the road to write an "ActivityPub C2S client via gemini". A web.. no, a gemini app that will render gemini pages from ActivityStream objects.

Just to publish this # on gemini automatically. Because why not.

It's been written in # using Jetforce

Here a screenshot of what I have now: on the left firefox shows my profile page via http/html, on the right the terminal running the gemini appserver, in the middle Alrisha rendering the result of the work...

entrambe, direi

Mostly I open a backing track on youtube and jam over it..

sometime I connect to some ninjam rooom at to jam online. I'm using JamTaba (a software that does not convince me completely..)

I'm not recording anything :)

I've got a lighting-fast # dashboard disabling most of the search providers. I'm not using them anyway.. I keep only File and Calculator 👍

"you can read a good book"
"or study a foreign language"
"or exercise"
"or tidying wardrobes"

Ha! Hahahahaha! 🤣🤣🤣

Look ma! New site!

yes, ma. I copied it from Foliate.. sorry..

Thibault reshared this.

Did you ask them first?
me copying the website

What's new in # today:

- nice button in headbar to update main menu list or event cached data
- nice overlay toaster to show notifications

- main menu data is updated automatically at start if older than one day
- event cache is updated automatically at open (if network is available).
- event data is downloaded asynchronously. This leave the UI responsive while downloading.
- talk detail page show "conflicting" starred talks

- Remind upcoming starred events with a system notification

What's wrong in # today:

- flatpak doesn't work anymore (see #. I think it's related to sandbox permissions, but I can't understand how fix it. So, flatpak building in is disabled.
- The "+" button ("Add event from URL") is just a placeholder. More work must be done to support it correctly
- apart from event data, other downloads are still sync and block the ui
- I still have issues with Leaflet and folding.... I'm missing something here...

please, send help...

What's missing, in "likely it will land" order:

- Download all data asynchronously.
- An app menu is needed, with things like "options" and "back to event list" ...
- An options window, with things like "update event cache every" and "clear all cached data"
- The "Map" page is still a placeholder
- Support for FOSDEM's room status API

# # # built on sourcehut build service, with a nice artifact. :)

still a test. Next step, trigger build of master branch when pushed.

Conf listing from Giggity data, I hope it's ok :)

So, yesterday evening @Gruppo Linux Como hosted the first "virtual meetup" using # .
We had a very nice experience (keeping the video stream at minimum), and friends abroad were able to join us!
I only missed the pizza together 😄
But Jami was very unreliable for me

yes. also for me.

I was told Jitsi was bought by a company and other messengers should be preferred.

Never heard of.

Anyway, Jitsi Meet it's fully opensource and self-hostable. Don't see any problem..

8×8 announced it has acquired the Jitsi team and our technology from Atlassian

"from Atlassian" looks like an improvement, to me.
Again, all the source code is available :)
Sounds good. I guess there are not many other alternatives.


They simply declared what they wanted to happen, entering into a negotiation with the borrow checker, and then revised their design until both parties were left satisfied.
