Same, fish is my fav. Fish + starship is a really great combo for terms.

do you feel that it’s actually that much more efficient (like their gh page says) than, say dvorak, or it is hard/too early to tell?

Hard to say… I’m fairly sold on it because it uses both real world hand distance measurements, and a genetic algorithm to not only find the best keyboard layout possible, but to score existing ones. Its def more comfortable than dvorak or qwerty, but I also haven’t tried colemak-dh or some of the other ones ppl like a lot.

The main thing I’ve learned is that while these alternate layouts don’t make you type faster, they do make things more comfortable.

Ya just keyboard. Did dvorak for about 3 years, got up to 50 with that, now I’m on halmak.

About 50 after 6 months or so on a new keyboard layout.

People ( especially more vulnerable people like the elderly, or those in hospitals ) die when electricity grids go down for even a few hours.

Did they post these themselves? That’s pretty great if they did.

Still not gonna touch it bc of electron obvi.

The HTTP docs are what you want: https://join-lemmy.org/api/classes/LemmyHttp.html#getPost

It tells you the full input and output types, and if you click the defined in link, it shows you the endpoint you can use for curl.

Example from above:

return this.wrapper(HttpType.Get, '/post', form);

We do it this way because the lemmy-js-client exactly matches what you need to build a client, and is completely auto-generated. Before we used to manually maintain other API docs, and it was a huge hassle to keep them updated.

For the UI, I was thinking they’d look similar to discord reactions, small, grouped, and at the bottom:

I was originally thinking anonymous, but I never thought of ppl using them for nefarious purposes…

For example its illogical to downvote a topic or eg. song from a music genre you personally dislike

Why is that wrong to do? Votes are preference, and completely up to the person voting how they want to use it. Other people don’t have to follow anyones rules for how they vote.

I find myself using them on pretty much every platform that has them: matrix, masto, discord, etc. …

People really do forget the days of unsorted forums, having to click through 30+ pages of replies to find the correct answers.

You can use the search page, and filter both by your user, community, and type comments. You’d probably find it pretty quickly.

I refuse to watch these click-bait videos, but it seems like his whole thing is about manufacturing controversy in linux spaces to get more engagement and views: IE the youtube / twitter model of social media.

I’ve always been confused as to why some people think its required that you write an essay when expressing “dislike / aversion”, but not when expressing “like”. Its inconsistent, and would just deter people from expressing dislike if it takes much more effort.

As a user of arch btw for many years, does anyone have any link to anything that fully goes into why a lot of distros such as arch don’t have this problem? Packages, runtimes, and dependencies have been a non-issue on arch (and I’m sure other distros with proper package managers) for a long time.

IMO the only funding that federation needs, is for developers, not really hosting costs. Most instances can be run on $5-10 dollar a month VPS’s.

Wikipedia has the best model (or at least used to, nowadays they have far more funding than they could ever need, and their requests are just annoying), where they do yearly funding drives. When our NLNet funding runs out, we will most likely have to do something similar in order to continue working on lemmy full-time.

Its a sad state of affairs, because most fediverse projects have < 3 developers, yet we all make less in donations than the average youtuber with a patreon. Eventually I think it’ll be a good idea to have yearly campaigns where we share all the fediverse projects that need funding, along with their liberapay / OpenCollective accounts. We all would prefer to stay donation funded, to remain free of any business or political entanglements.

At the moment we only have a few “scale” blockers, one of them being proper comment tree paging. Outside of that, there’s nothing stopping any instance from getting thousands of daily users.

Someone could start one, but I doubt many would use it, as most ppl don’t like seeing ads.

This is one of those vague messages that tells no one what’s actually happening. They should provide some context as to what’s going on.

Same. I’d love for us to grow, but never at the expense of it becoming overwhelming. I’d much rather have a bunch of smaller, community / interest focused, interconnected instances, than a giant one that values growth above all.

Our goal for this instance at least is just for it to be an enjoyable experience.

Currently it blanks out the content ( IE the post title, etc ) when you go to a mod removed post, but you will still see the title in the modlog. …

Since our last release earlier this month, we’ve had ~30 commits to Lemmy. …

Lemmy.ml now uses open federation.

You no longer have to ask us to add you manually, you can subscribe and interact without the approval process. …

Fixed several critical websocket bugs. …


Lemmy instance list updated!

If your instance doesn’t have a description, please edit it in your instance settings (It will be the Description field, above the sidebar), and we’ll pick that info up on our next update of join-lemmy
