Hey developers & ActivityPub enthusiasts!

https://gettogether.community is a free open alternative to MeetUp.com.

The lead developer needs help with implementing federation, either coding or better documentation about ActivityPub.

There's an open issue for it here:
https://github.com/GetTogetherComm/GetTogether/issues/60

There's been discussion but no code contributions yet.
Can you help?

(It would be so cool to get this kind of service federated, imagine every town having its own instance!)

Eine Frage: Gibt es irgendwo gute und pragmatische, vorzugsweise englische, Texte, die jemanden auf einfache Weise erklären, warum es besser ist eine Software als OpenSource zu veröffentlichen? Welche Lizenz zum Beispiel gut ist, damit man nicht von großen Firmen platt gemacht werden kann.

Hintergrund ist, ich würde gerne die Entwickler der Synthesizer/Sequencer/Sampler Hardwarebox https://synthstrom.com/product/deluge/ überzeugen, damit die Community bei der Entwicklung helfen kann. Im Moment macht das ein einziger Entwickler, der wirklich gut ist, aber ich bin mir sicher, dass weitere Entwickler diesem phänomenalem Gerät mit ihrer Hilfe recht schnell den Status einer Legende im Synthesizer Olymp verschaffen könnten.

Bitte keine dieser religiös und verbohrt anhaftenden Texte "OSS ist beste von Welt, weil isso". Der Text muss die richtigen Argumente haben, die die Angst vor Diebstahl nimmt und das Gefühl von der Sicherheit gibt, die OpenSourc... show more

Musk releases all Tesla patents to help save the Earth
Elon Musk announced Thursday he had released all of the electric carmaker Tesla's patents, as part of an effort to fight climate change.

"We believe that applying the open-source philosophy to our patents will strengthen rather than diminish Tesla's position," and ability to attract talented engineers, he said.

Steven Vaughan-Nichols went to the dark side


To my horror I saw today that the ZDNet journalist Steven Vaughan-Nichols that I followed on G+ opened a FB account and asked people to follow him there. He tried Diaspora* but didn't like it much. I couldn't convince him to try another Fediverse social network. It somehow feels like a loss to me. I think he's a good journalist that writes a lot about FLOSS but FB, Come on.

@Hyp🅾️lℹ️te 🅿️etovan (he/him) @Vladimir unless it is #FLOSS ... No bashing of closed-source here, it could be good-indented at the start, too. But it might be changed in a way that was not intended from the start (like all OSes/WMs like Windows 1.0-3.11 were). #MacOS was well-intended and until the X was added, it was by far very stable. Same with #Windows , well-intended at the start (easy usage of PCs) but look at it now.

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... show more

VCV RACK 0.6.2c
Open-source virtual modular synthesizer
Linux / macOS / Windows
Often general-purpose monolithic DAWs rightfully use a proprietary software model, but the principle behind modular synthesizers is identical to the UNIX philosophy, where stable, minimal modules working together are preferred to a monolithic platform controlled by a single vendor (like portable synthesizer keyboards). As proven by the Linux and BSD projects, this philosophy thrives when the ability to develop small modules is opened to the public with minimal legal friction, which ultimately benefits consumers and the Rack platform itself greater than proprietary platforms. For this reason, VCV Rack will always remain free and open-source so that users and developers can freely explore their ideas.

Hi guys...

I had to get rid of #Atom editor because too fat on my root partition, probably if I am going to buy a second HD I will mount /usr in another partition, anyway now I need a new --- in #Debian --- editor replacement. I would like to exclude as first instance Vi/Vim and Emacs, and I would like to say that #Geany is amazing but unfortunately not enough as Atom, if there is another modern editor like Atom available in the Debian repo that you were aware about, please share it with me and the federation!

Cheers 🍻

For the #mac user great news!

Beside the fact that #Gimp 2.10.8 is already available, today I discovered that finally the #mac user the #gmic plugin finally working (almost) out of the box!

To make it working you have to install before, in case you haven't it, XQuartz then download the plugin: Mac OSX tgz archive (daily build), last you have to move the extracted files into the GIMP config folder.

The easy way to copy these files is open a terminal inside the folder where you extracted the plugins and paste this command:
cp -r \* ~/Library/Application\ Support/GIMP/2.10/plug-ins/
Enjoy them!
