We need a healthy ecosystem of free/open reviews.
lib.reviews has been around since 2016 -- would love to collaborate (even in just making people aware of each other's efforts)! One important thing to consider is to use compatible licenses, see https://lib.reviews/terms#licensing for where we landed on that.
@nortix I saw this and was unsure if they're truly the same thing -- it looks like OsmAnd~ is a community-compiled version without Google Play services? The downside I could see of merging them is that folks might be confused as to what constitutes the first-party build.
You can now configure images that are used for rich link previews on social media (like Mastodon). It's under "Additional settings" in the review editor. More info:
(It only works for individual reviews, so far.)
They do! Right now, node and way URLs are supported. You can get those if you click through a search on OSM itself, and end up on a URL like this:
If you put that URL into lib.reviews, it'll pull the label from OSM. Still pretty basic, but it does pull it in translations (if available), and keep it up-to-date.
Yes, with two caveats:
- The site name is included in a few UI messages that would need to be updated.
- It uses RethinkDB as a database backend, which is unfortunately barely maintained (but still readily installable). I'd like to migrate to a new DB backend like CouchDB, but that's a heavy lift and will take a while.
Like many other open source projects, lib.reviews has migrated its IRC channel to libera.chat due to the implosion of FreeNode.
You can now find us on irc.libera.chat (channel #lib.reviews).
@nortix Agree, that would be pretty cool - might be even more awesome if you could follow users or teams on lib.reviews directly on Mastodon, and then simply boost their posts 🤔
Wenn ihr tolle Geschenke bekommen habt und diese für alle und frei zugänglich bewerten wollt, könnt ihr eine Bewertung bei @lib_reviews schreiben. Für einen Einladungslink könnt ihr mich gerne anschreiben.
Just finished reading Sapiens: a Brief History of Humankind by Yuval Noah Harari.
I also took the chance to write my first review on lib.reviews (https://lib.reviews/review/b4d948bc-4f4a-4841-aeb1-5ef6e844edd5)
Check @lib_reviews for more info on this cool project!
Thanks for the kind words! I personally won't be able to take the lead on federation support in the near future, but let me know if you're interested in collaborating on it! - Erik
I posted a #review about #Posteo, the secure #email provider from Germany, on @lib_reviews: https://lib.reviews/review/c977e430-5e7f-4c92-9e68-b9deab3d9d1e
@email@example.com At minimum, we want to add support for review-less ratings (similar to the IMDB review/ratings distinction).
Cataloging is probably out of scope (and there are other free/open projects like https://inventaire.io/ that are taking that on), but ultimately it's up to what the community of developers wants to work on :)
@GreyLinux Agree that this would be very cool! My (@eloquence) focus right now is on improvements to the very basic OSM integration we have, which will be a precondition for any "nearby" type features and such. I'm unlikely to work directly on an app but I want to make sure we at least provide the kind of API that makes such an app possible.
@GreyLinux Not yet, though the site should be mobile-friendly throughout. What use case do you have in mind? "Restaurants near me" kind of thing?

@priryo Thank you for saying so! Making those kinds of pages readable & friendly is a personal passion. If any particular bits stand out as potential areas for further improvement, please do let me know. :)
