🍪 🚫 Clicking away the so called "cookie banners" is annoying and sometimes also quite time consuming to find the least invasive option, so automating it is of course the right solution. I am now using this extension
If you have better options let me know!
🚀 I have created an open q&a chat bot for @matrix Taavi can answer "any" question in any language:
It has a binary distribution for Linux and is quite simple to set up. Yes some might say, but you could use Google directly, but that would not be as much fun, right?
How to automate the deployment of a web project?
For deployment automation there is not a single solution, but setting up an automated deployment is not hard and mostly follows the same steps.
- building the project
- copying the build files to a server
- installing or updating dependencies on the server
- reloading the server
These steps can be automated with a simple script.
In my article I show an example how to create this script and how I integrate it in a build system.
Nextcloud 💓 Matrix
To connect Matrix *Synapse* with Nextcloud, let
Nextcloud act as an OpenID Connect / OAuth2 provider and Matrix as client. User management is done by Nextcloud, where you can benefit from their app store to integrate even more authentication systems.
Read the full setup:
Backend databse? MySQL, PostgreSQL, MongoDB? ... naaaa
Too boring, to technical!
I will used Nextcloud as my next backend database!
How do? Nuxt content loves .md .yml .csv files, Nextcloud stores them and has editors, syncs to phone, editors also on phone, nice, symlink them together, win!
Well so far the plan.
🙏Dear Mastodon, please do not advertise Mastodon as the solution to the deplatforming of Trump (and other extrimist right wings).
This is how we will destroy Mastodon. This will get the wrong people here. This will result in policing and restrictions of our freedom.
There are great reasons why to use Mastodon, but anti-deplatforming is a dangerous path.
Choosing a USB-C hub/dock is quite a daunting task. There are like 3 to ∞ number of things you could connect, but not the ones you would like to connect.
I already have a freaking SD card reader, but I want more USB-C inputs!!!!
Who still connects something to VGA, come one!
Where is the cool product TM startup where I can select the connectors I want (USB-C Hub Configurator TM) that will send me my perfect hub.
Yes please steal this idea from me and get rich. 💸
Since our schools 🎓 are now progressing into the digital age with an incredible pace that keeps them struggling, I was asked by a friend to help him create a PDF from for their grade sheets.
The old edit the Word document method was just too error prone.
So I said, hold my beer, opened my laptop and started to convince LibreOffice to create this form (yes, it was not trivial).
I never imagined I would do this 😅
Anybody in need for the template?
So I was tinkering with matrix (the chat protocol) a lot lately and finally got what I wanted to have for a long time: Nextcloud with Matrix.
Nextcloud is providing OAuth2 to Matrix-Synapse, both run on separate subdomains since the NC Element app is an iFrame which prevents OAuth logins.
I have written down a full documentation so you can set this up too 📖
... but here is the next challenge I face: set up a blog (again).
Have you seen This Week in Matrix yet!? First of the year, absolutely top quality news and updates about Matrix, including an interview with the maintainers of NeoChat, the Matrix client from KDE! #twim #matrix #decentralisation https://matrix.org/blog/2021/01/08/this-week-in-matrix-2021-01-08
Wir trafen uns mit ca.70 Rebellis aus Hamburg & Umgebung, um einen kleinen Kreisel am Bhf Bergedorf zu blockieren. 4 Durchgänge á 5 Min drehten wir uns im Kreis u. beflyerten Passanten und Autofahrer mit unseren 3 Forderungen.
There is always one bad apple in a web project, and quite often it's . So how to debug WebKit when you are on #linux? One solution is to use www.browserstack.com but it costs money and ... other things. But I just found something much better:
Gnome Web uses WebKit for rendering and it's a "pleasure" to reproduce Apple browser bugs.
Now that #github finally has a dark mode (which I couldn't care less for) how about adding a real productivity feature and create a button to create a branch + pull request from an issue.
#gitlab is so much more advanced in this respect. After using the "Gitlab flow" for a year and now working with Github again I just feel like
Well at least this is now the top upvoted feature request... finally
While I'm trying to get away from Github in favor of Gitlab I recently started a remote client project on Github and created CI/CD workflows with Github actions.
I especially enjoyed creating the CD workflow that sends a message to a #matrix channel when the deployment was a success.
There is still a problem left, the message is send unencrypted to an e2e encrypted channel. It arrives but ...
Anyway my client loves Matrix, which I introduced them to, and we use it every day.
Good code is like a beautiful poem.
