PSA: blocking users prevents you from moderating content from those users. You would also have to ban them from any sub you moderate to mitigate this issue

I’m not a shill, and I see the value of a cargo-bike. You should watch the video if you havn’t.

The whole world is built on open source projects that haven’t been touched in years!

They must be on the verge of bankruptcy to be considering this =/

Men only want one thing and its fucking expensive

IIRC reddit has an option for “open in new tab”

yeah, but, I need 3 accounts across 3 websites to participate in the fediverse. those features would make lemmy the one-stop-shop.

I completely agree, but I think video hosting would be great as an optional addon

I think the software is great!

If we could follow people, post to our own profile, and host/play videos, then it would be the only fediverse website anyone needs!

Here are some of the things that you can do with Huginn:

  • Track the weather and get an email when it’s going to rain (or snow) tomorrow (“Don’t forget your umbrella!”)
  • List terms that you care about and receive email when their occurrence on Twitter changes. (For example, want to know when something interesting has happened in the world of Machine Learning? Huginn will watch the term “machine learning” on Twitter and tell you when there is a spike in discussion.)
  • Watch for air travel or shopping deals
  • Follow your project names on Twitter and get updates when people mention them
  • Scrape websites and receive email when they change
  • Connect to Adioso, HipChat, Growl, FTP, IMAP, Jabber, JIRA, MQTT, nextbus, Pushbullet, Pushover, RSS, Bash, Slack, StubHub, translation APIs, Twilio, Twitter, and Weibo, to name a few.
  • Send digest email with things that you care about at specific times during the day
  • Track counts of high frequency events and send an SMS within moments when they spike, such as the term “san francisco emergency”
  • Send and receive WebHooks
  • Run custom JavaScript or CoffeeScript functions
  • Track your location over time
  • Create Amazon Mechanical Turk workflows as the inputs, or outputs, of agents (the Amazon Turk Agent is called the “HumanTaskAgent”). For example: “Once a day, ask 5 people for a funny cat photo; send the results to 5 more people to be rated; send the top-rated photo to 5 people for a funny caption; send to 5 final people to rate for funniest caption; finally, post the best captioned photo on my blog.”

With the help of LD_PRELOAD, Symbiote will load before any other shared objects. That allows the malware to tamper with other library files loaded for an application. The image below shows a summary of all of the malware’s evasion techniques.

It could be, but if I put the mapping of UI-theme to code theme in JS then custom themes would require custom code on the frontend. My simple implementation for #1 only involves adding an ‘@import myhljstheme.css’ statement to the themes css. This makes themeing easier, but css is blissfully unaware of what happens in JavaScript land.

that’s what I was originally thinking, but the solutions arn’t really compatible with each-other. themers would import themes, but when we add the setting, you’d end up with two themes loaded, and there could be issues until themers remove the import =/

It would be less headache for everyone to decide on a comprehensive solution from the beginning =/

There is a bug that prevents updating the configuration, so watch out. (at least w/ docker)

EDIT: I just screwed up, and forgot to run docker-compose down -v 🤦‍♂️

Its likely a known issue with nginx + docker.
When a docker container crashes it gets a new IP address, but nginx has cached the upstream hostname resolution as the old IP, so it thinks the upstream is gone.

Or it could be a million other issues, that’s just one that I run into a lot. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

[RFC] How should code-highlighting themes be handled?
I'm working on adding highlighting to `code-blocks` on lemmy using [highlight.js](, and am wondering exactly how to implement it. There are many code-themes that could be used Regarding which theme to use there are basically two different directions I could go: 1. Each lemmy-theme would have to explicitly declare an hljs theme to use. - PROS: - easy to use, users automatically get an appropriate code-theme for every ui-theme. - simple to implement (already done) - CONS: - theme-makers need to pick an appropriate theme - no user customizability, limited number of themes 2. Users can pick their preferred theme just like they pick a UI theme. - PROS: - Extreme customization, there are a buttload of themes, and users can pick any one! - CONS: - Users would **need** to pick an appropriate theme. It would use the "browser-default" (light/dark) until they pick one, and could look weird and be confusing until then - PITA to implement & requires back-end changes (wont see it for a while) Let me know what you think, or if you have another solution. I have solution #1 deployed on right now =] Here is the PR for those interested:

- Composer - Conan - Container (Docker / Helm) - Generic packages - Maven - npm - NuGet - PyPI - RubyGems

[Suggestion] Configurable "default sort" for comments
I would also appreciate site-config options for comments and posts.

Anyone else have this problem or know a solution? My instance has almost no usage, and I'm using the version recommended in the docker instructions.

Why do mod-actions on other instances show up on my instance?
I get that "federated bans" were added recently, but it seems odd to show trolls getting banned from their home-instance on my instance. =/ thoughts?

Presumably it's the link to the comment/post on the instance it was made, but that's not always the case, so I'm a little confused =/

Is there a bot that will scrape RSS / ATOM feeds and xpost to lemmy?
It would be handy for auto-posting new github releases, youtube vids, SO content, etc. If not I'll make one, so recommend libs =]

The video seems to be fine... how is this possible?!?!

Where is the line between criticism and harassment?
I've had this debate before and was unable to come to a conclusion. It seems to me that any criticism, no matter how valid, could be characterized as harassment. What do you guys think? Is there a heuristic for determining which one a statement is? Does everything just exist on a continuum between the two? Is this harassment?

[META] !piracynews mod banned me for criticizing a Bloomberg article...
@CHEFKOCH banned me for criticizing a Bloomberg article that didn't link to any primary sources. He claimed I was being "disrespectful" for that criticism... This doesn't make any sense to me, and I would avoid that sub, if you're looking for critically reviewed content, or debate of any kind.
