Haunted by strange dreams that my waking mind could not contain. What dreamlands did you visit last night?

Good morning, #fediverse. Good morning.

Mastodon doesn't punish you for living your life.

It doesn't actively take metrics of your interactions to gauge your social or cultural capital.

Never will it demand that you post this much to be or stay relevant to the community, disappearing into the void if you don't meet The Quota.

So please, for the love of toot, take breaks whenever you feel you need to! We'll be here when you get back! :patcat:

I'm happy to announce that my barebones ActivityPub server, implemented in Node.js/Express, is now open source! I intend for it to be a reference implementation for developers who are adding ActivityPub to their own services, but also it is an application server that you can build on if you want.

In other words, t's a few hundred lines of code that lets you create Mastodon-compatible accounts that can accept follow requests and post stuff to their followers.

Why is it whenever somebody hands you a business card you feel obligated to stare at it for a good few seconds? πŸ€”

You might think that someone who complains is having a bad time while someone who is quiet is having a good time.

It's the opposite.

Someone who complains:

* believes that what they are doing is worth complaining about
* believes that they are worthy of better circumstances
* feels a sense of agency over their environment

Someone who is quiet:

* doesn't believe what they're doing is worth complaining about
* doesn't believe they're worthy of better circumstances
* feels powerless

OK, screw it: anybody good with and/or ? πŸ˜…

Trying to write a GObject wrapper around an existing C++ library, so I can generate GIR/Typelib introspection files for use in GJS apps. Unfortunately, my C-fu consists of Stack overflow copypasta.

I have everything working in isolation, just never together 😁

It's just like the good old days at University: copying code and making educated guesses to make it work πŸ˜‚

At least the end goal of all this will make it accessible in ...

If you missed it yesterday: @nicoalt has written a proposal for integrating packages with /#activitypub! The best thing about this proposal? It could in the future power comments and popularity of apps in F-Droid. 😍
