and now, a quick commercial break..

Hei #SailfishOS users! #FOSDEM2021 is coming!
This year is a virtual event, all online, but the schedule is packed as always!
Wouldn't it be nice to have an app to explore the schedule and keep track of interesting talks? Wait no more! Here is the app you are looking for!
Go in the official Jolla Store and search for "FOSDEM QML"!
And if you have it already installed, just drag down the upper menu in the app and select "Import": the url to the new schedule of #FOSDEM is already there!! What a convenience!!!

#SailfishOS by #Jolla running on the Dell XPS 15 2-in-1. This port works on most x86_64 devices that can run Ubuntu 20.04 and have a graphics card supported by Mesa. Disk images/rootfs is coming soon.

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."
https://gemini.circumlunar.space/

Found about it via Castor ( https://sr.ht/~julienxx/Castor/ ), a graphical gemini (+ gopher and finger) browser, written in #rust / #gtk , which I found thanks to the "Featured projects" list of Sourcehut Hub ( read more here https://sourcehut.org/blog/2020-04-30-the-sourcehut-hub-is-live/ )

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

It's not yet here, but while experimenting I ended up writing a desktop browser for #gemini with #Qt and #QML which I called Alrisha : https://git.sr.ht/~fabrixxm/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 #microblog on gemini automatically. Because why not.

It's been written in #python using Jetforce https://github.com/michael-lazar/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...
