Framasoft will be delighted to kmow this.. After they started supporting global search, they mentioned they want to make a website like this. But they'll also make it free software so that others can make such indexing websites too.


A search engine for #peertube

"PeerTube Index is a centralized search engine for PeerTube videos. We run a crawler that visits PeerTube instances to find videos and new instances. All found videos are made searchable by their name. We exclude videos marked as Not Safe For Work (NSFW) for now.

This site is not affiliated to Framasoft, the maintainer of the PeerTube software. "

@claudius I saw an issue yesterday where they (Microsoft) said rsync was “out of scope”.


Right, so, just so I’m sure I’ve covered all the bases. Options for getting rsync with ssh running on Windows 10 (not WSL):

- cygwin
- msys2
- A couple of incomplete cross-platform clones in Rust (none support ssh yet)

None of these are great options. There isn’t a statically-linked single binary (or better yet, pure JS option) I’ve missed, is there?

We're moving forward on #PeerTube's roadmap!

New moderation tools, work started on plugins and playlists, and much more news to read here

>#Briar requires face-to-face linking initially

Version 1.2 fixed that:

"This release allows users to add each other securely by exchanging links. Previously users needed to meet in person or ask a mutual contact to introduce them."

"#Briar over #I2P would be absolutely fantastic and we'd welcome and enccourage anyone who wishes to take on that project. Unfortunately I don't have the time or Briar knowlege to do it at the moment, but if someone who does has SAM or I2CP or even i2ptunnel questions I can certainly help answer those."

@briar, @amoeba requests for a file transfers feature.

My additions: as I understand, Briar stores messages in a hashlinked list structure and doesn't support deletions. This can be the reason against support of big files and images. Maybe to store them as external data (optional files in term of ZeroNet)?
@briar the UX of forums and private groups. After some activity it becomes hard to navigate through all the branches. It needs simple group chats like in other messengers.

What is hindering you the most to use #Briar (more often)?

@bthylafh @Horizon_Innovations @protonmail @Tutanota @hyploma IIRC, is one of the more versatile ones. It can send email from to both clearnet & onion recipients, it can receive email via onion or clearnet (you have two address domains), and the UI is accessible by either onion or clearnet. Onionmail may be the same, but most services have on limitation or another.

@hyploma @Tutanota @protonmail @Horizon_Innovations @bthylafh indeed. Most clearnet services are incapable of sending mail to #onion email addresses. Even some onion email services do not accept or send onion mail. And some onion email services can't email clearnet, while others can (but some of those can't put a clearnet reply address in the header).

In case you missed it: #Anbox works on @mobian on the @PINE64
#PinePhone. Progress on making the process easier is being tracked here: If you are considering a #PinePhone, but there is that one publicly available app holding you back, please @ me.

Also, here is a hasty video I shot this morning before work:

Ran for a full workday and still had 30% on the #pinephone battery. The work on improvements to power management recently has really made a noticeable difference.
