  • Discourse

    A platform for community discussion. Free, open, simple.

  • Project mention: Discord to Start Showing Ads for Gamers to Boost Revenue | | 2024-04-01

    > Tell me another platform that is free, has realtime chat, voice and video, has stable service, allows sharing images and other media, with good ownership management... and is open source.



    Nextcloud Talk:

    Self hosting and some assembly required. I've run all of them on cheap VPSes to explore a Slack/Discord replacement, neither was mindblowing but all of them seemed okay (Nextcloud's offering was rather barebones, though).

    Audio and video support varies because getting those right is challenging, at best you'd just integrate with something like Jitsi, that one's actually pretty good for meetings and such: and has a cloud version too: (yet people still go for Zoom and it's odd UI/UX choices)

    I actually rather liked forums back in the day, but I guess nobody will be setting up that many phpBB instances in the current year, though projects like Discourse also seem promising:

    I don't think many people at all will be leaving Discord, due to how entrenched the platform is (network effect): if you want people to help you with what you're working on, you go where they are, not vice versa.

  • Opal

    Ruby ♥︎ JavaScript

  • Project mention: RubyJS-Vite | | 2024-04-15

    It's been a long time dream for me since about 2013 when I started getting deep into Ruby and Rails, to be able to write Ruby code for the frontend instead of JavaScript. I was a lover and adopter of CoffeeScript (which had it's flaws and imperfections), but that mostly got killed by ES6. I wrote some PoCs with Opal[1] that felt pretty good to write, but the overhead was rough (this was many years ago so things might be different now) and I never really felt like I didn't have to know about or care about the underlying javascript. I tend to discard leaky abstractions as I feel they often add more complexity than they were meant to cover in the first place.

    Has anybody used this or Opal or anything else? What is the state of "write your frontend in Ruby" nowadays?


  • Zammad

  • Project mention: An open-source ticketing system | /r/sysadmin | 2023-05-22

  • dependabot-core

  • Project mention: Why I recommend Renovate over any other dependency update tools | | 2024-04-12

    Oh yes, I wouldn't go so far as saying it was locked because it was too uncivil, mostly just because "additional commentary wasn't adding value" ;)

    Your read on the situation is spot on, and no, it doesn't look like it's been "fixed" (mostly because "fixing it would re-introduce the same potential vulnerability).

    Citizen science! It's great when people realize they can answer their own questions with observation and data, and for activism because data is a powerful story. One friend of mine started to feed this, and another is doing data journalism to highlight holes in the government's environmental data.
