Hi Leute,
ich wollt einfach mal sagen das ich froh bin das hier eine Community entstanden ist die sich der Freiheit verschrieben fühlt und sich bewusst ist was für Gesellschaftliche folgen die Verwendung von proprietärer Software in der Zukunft haben wird und nicht dem reinen Kapital/Profit dient.
Freut mich einfach das es noch so viele Freidenker gibt und man mit seinen Gedanken nicht allein ist :-)

Very exciting! #Riot reaches version 1.0, and it's quite the makeover, with easier encryption, better looks...

Der Oberbürgermeister Münchens, #Reiter ( SPD ), steigt mit seiner #SPD / #CSU Koalition aus dem international anerkannten #LiMux Projekt der Rot-Grünen Koalition seines Vorgängers #Uhde ( SPD ) aus.
Wo ist da der #Landesrechnungshof?
Wieso begibt man sich in die Abhängigkeit des Monopolisten #Microsoft?
Wieso wird der #Datenschutz leichtfertig auf’s Spiel gesetzt?
Wieso erkennt man nicht den Wert der #OpenSource-Software für die Gesellschaft?
Wieso wird dieser digitale #Amoklauf nicht gestoppt?

Die niedersächsische Finanzverwaltung muß, im Koalitionsvertrag der #GroKo beschlossen, aus Linux aussteigen.

Three weeks ago I wrote a guide about FLOSS tools to create a forum or community. I updated this original post a fair bit and published it on my blog. I added lots of links to the source code and example websites of forums. I also expanded on most of the alternatives. Lastly I added Discourse as an option.

Movim, FLOSS Alternative for Hangouts

 
MoeNavigator news 2018-12-29
The last days I worked on MoeNavigatorEngine, its HTTP protocol handler, the HTML and XML parser and the renderer interface.

The work on the HTTP handler resulted in better HTTP header field reading. In practice this means that file downloads and accepting (session) cookies may soon be possible in programs that use MoeNavigatorEngine as its web browser engine.

Another thing I am working on is a graphical renderer that renders parsed documents as SVG graphics. The renderer itself creates an SVG graphic consisting of rect and textArea elements where the rect elements represent borders and the textArea elements obviously represent text inside document nodes. The program mne2svg from the repository https://gitlab.com/moenavigator/moenavigatorengine-tools uses the new renderer and outputs its result on stdout.

Correct placement of document nodes is not yet possible since placement information have to be provided from the engine. Resolving the segfault I mentioned in my previous post has a high priority so that the engine can apply default or side-specific CSS rules to the document and graphical renderers produce better results.


Regards
Moritz

More information about MoeNavigator, its engine and tools can be found on the page of the GitLab group: https://gitlab.com/moenavigator

MoeNavigator status update 2018-12-21
The XML and HTML parsers got an update which improved their node tree construction. The parsers don't add an empty node below the root node anymore and they don't create text nodes that only consist of whitespace anymore. Together with the current state of the tool mnestripper (from moenavigatorengine-tools) it is now possible to read a document via HTTP from a web page and get the XHTML version of that document. However, the HTML parser is far from being standard compliant. For example, in one of my tests with a real web page it produced a DOM tree where a "meta" tag has child elements.

CSS rules are currently ignored since trying to apply them to the DOM tree causes a segfault in the engine whose source I haven't found yet. In this early state I think it is also more important to get basic networking (HTTP) and HTML DOM construction working.

Regards
Moritz

Hey everyone, I’m #newhere. I’m interested in #climateprotection, #debian, #ecology, #floss, #history, #javascript, #linux, #opensource, #philosophy, #python, #rust, #socialism, #socialjustice, and #sustainability.

In preparation for The Great G+ Migration,,I thought I'd join up here to reacquaint myself with Diaspora before more seriously considering running my own pod. It's been a long time since I last explored it so I expect much has improved since its earliest days.

Application Prototype: Remembering - Update 2


For people who have tried this application before, please scroll to "New in this version"

Lately i’ve been working on a personal project:

https://gitlab.com/SunyataZero/remembering

Remembering is a reminder application for things we’d like to stay mindful/aware of during the day when using the computer
The application runs in the background “in the system tray” and notifications are shown in the systray menu. Clicking a menu item will launch the associated action

These actions are supported at the moment:

* Showing a text
* Displaying an image
* Launching a website
* Custom command (for example launching an application)
* Breathing phrase - experimental

The time of the reminders can be set to a certain frequency or to specific times of day (or both)

Examples of how this application can be used:

* Showing a reminder of a loved one by adding images
* Quotes and wisdom that we want to remember can be shown
* Reminding us of an intention that we set at the start of the day
* Launching a website which has content that is updated daily

New in this version

  • Breathing phrases as a new action type - experimental
  • When viewing images, texts, or breathing phrases: It's possible to click "next" to see the next notification. This makes it much easier when there are many notifications queued up
  • More info in the list interface on the left side of the settings window
  • Now possible to select some items to always be shown at the bottom of the systray menu - experimenal
  • Notifications are now displayed in fullscreen

I’ve been working on a personal project for the last week:

https://gitlab.com/SunyataZero/remembering

* Reminding us of an intention that we set at the start of the day
* Launching a website which has content that is updated daily
Feedback is most welcome! Esp. about what features would be good to have, and which features in the application you like now

Thoughts i’ve had:
* Do we want to integrate this withing the Mindfulness at the Computer application? @Marieke Bednarczyk
* I’m thinking about adding “static” reminder items in the systray menu, which could be used for if-then scenarios, like for example “when anxious” could bring up a list of things we can do when feeling anxious, or perhaps open another application which helps us dealing with our anxiety

Thank you to @Marieke Bednarczyk for coming up with the idea for this application!

The Rainbow Illusion by Pixelfed




I don’t wish to start this brief entry with a headline as the new floss alternative that wants to kill x proprietary service, because it’s already a topic quite used and, in my opinion, it does not contribute anything new to the debate.

I’ve always believed that it’s not about killing or being the only mass option. For me, if there would be a free software alternative to do anything, this must be understood as a different way of seeing the world, conceiving it and acting on it, far from other logics that are certainly prevailing and more popular.



Publishing on Pixelfed

A couple of months ago, it was announced on Mastodon, another social network attempt, but focused at sharing images,as a Instagram-like, but with the features of operating under software that federates which could mean to allow that each person to create their own server, besides the possibility of examining or not the software on which the service runs.

Now the test server opened the doors and it seems that the first two weeks have shown that this software has a promising future.

For now, it is in a closed beta status, which means that the records are opened every so often; as also that the software is in continuous improvement, which means that it lacks many features; as for example, modifying avatar, what it’s impossible right now.

The (brief) Story behind Pixelfed




Osorno Volcano, Chile

A couple of months ago, when a lone developer from Alberta, Canada, called @dansup started working on this new social network; perhaps, inspired by the success achieved by Mastodon; added to the fact that the majority of the software of this one was completely well documented as well as that the Protocol on which it is based was transformed into a W3C recommendation.

For now, the development is moving at a good pace; improving the UI every week, and allowing the integration of new features, improving the size of the images; of the text that is possible to publish next to them, among others.

Profiles and User Interface




1. Avatar


The avatar is not modifiable at the moment. It is randomly assigned by the software and consists of drawings with circular patterns

2. Number of Publications, Followers and Following Accounts


It does not deserve much explanation.

3. Photo gallery


Later you can see the Photo Gallery; which, for now, allows you to see the 21 latest publications.



4. Menu


Immagine/foto
  • Compass: The compass indicates accounts that you can follow.
  • Heart: The heart indicates notification.
  • User: The user shows the following options:
    a) My Timeline: is the place where you can find your publications and the publications of the people you follow
    b) Public Timeline: shows all the posts on the server
    c) Remote Follow: It is supposed to follow users who have their accounts hosted on other compatible servers
    d) Settings: Allows you to modify the account settings. For now, the only option that can be modified relatively is the personal profile. Warning: As in Mastodon the username is final, it can not be changed.
    e) Logout: Exit Pixelfed

5. Followers and Accounts You Follow





This page shows your followers or the accounts you follow. Here you can stop following them or follow them if you like.

Publishing on Pixelfed





It does not have much complicated explanations. You just have to look for the capture or photo, which must not exceed 30 megabytes, limited to 6 photos per publication. Another limitation is the formats of the photos, which must belong to the following formats: jpeg, png, gif and bmp.




There is the possibility of modifying the image by applying one of the innumerable filters, to achieve a better effect.

Saving posts




Khalessi gives the Fire and Blood Blessing to Pixelfed

Next to the heart, the balloon of the comments, there is also an option to save publications to observe them later and not be lost them by the flow generated by other entries.

Another resources

Conclusion


I hope it improves and can federate with Mastodon.

Cine-foro: "Nuevas tecnologías y Populismo Digital"


Miércoles 12 de septiembre, 18:30-20:30
Mercadillo Oe3-125 y Ulloa (Quito)

Arrancamos el ciclo de cine-foros de la Comuna Digital con una serie de capítulos de Black Mirror. Tendremos una proyección al mes, el primer miércoles de cada mes, en general.

En esta primera ocasión conversaremos acerca de cómo las nuevas tecnologías, y en particular las redes sociales digitales, influyen en nuestra manera de hacer política, a través del episodio "El momento de Waldo".

Estaremos abordando los fenómenos populistas y su uso de las redes sociales y de los datos masivos, pasando por el Brexit, el fenómeno Trump... hasta abrir la discusión sobre los impactos que vislumbramos para el futuro de la democracia.

¡Les esperamos! Y no duden en dar la difusión que deseen.
