    I've tried hosted Pi-Hole and AdGuard Home. They are good as long as I'm around to fix stuffs. Then I tested something which can be global (home) and also for individual devices -- Control-D, NextDNS, and Adguard DNS. All of them works pretty well. If I really have to choose, then it would be in the order of NextDNS > Control-D > AdGuard DNS. Affiliated with none, and have decided to subscribe to all three to further test them for this year.




  • any-sync

    An open-source protocol designed to create high-performance, local-first, peer-to-peer, end-to-end encrypted applications that facilitate seamless collaboration among multiple users and devices

  • Project mention: Show HN: Anytype multi-player: local-first, P2P, encrypted collaboration | news.ycombinator.com | 2024-04-25

    Co-founder of Anytype is here [1]. Excited to share the multi-player release is live!

    Last time I shared how Anytype can be used to build encrypted, local-first spaces around your interests [2]. Today, these spaces can be shared and co-created together: with your family members, small communities, teams, neighbors and people with similar interests. Examples: https://gallery.any.coop/Collaboration.

    When we were testing collaboration internally for the first time, it felt like magic - we as a team were editing the same page, even after switching off the Internet - changes happened in an instant and all of them were synced via wi-fi.

    Unlike cloud applications, in Anytype the encryption keys are stored locally, so only creators have access to them, so they own the space with its data and social graph. Every change is cryptographically signed, spaces can be created offline and can sync in peer to peer ways in local networks. This is enabled by open source protocol AnySync that supports high-performant collaboration over encrypted data and creators’ controlled keys. All our code is open on Github - https://github.com/anyproto/any-sync.

    This first version of collaboration is very basic - it’s an alpha. It’s far from polished. We will focus on making it complete by adding notifications, public spaces, comments, and many other essential features in the coming months.

    Why we’ve built it? Why anytype is the way it is?
