What a bargain! /s
@OTheB That is pretty annoying!
I would just like to say though - packaging software for linux IS hard! I don't know if you've done it before - but trying to get a .deb into a launchpad PPA, for example, is stupidly overly complicated. Packaging into a snap or a flatpak and publishing your app is way easier, as a developer, in my experience.
And that's not even talking about sandboxing etc.
Welcome to the club. There's no going back once you've seen the light 😁
Yep, should be!
Yeah, that'll happen! Heheh. In terms of tracking, you can inspect the code on GitHub and you can see that no tracking tags are loaded if you inspect network.
@preslavrachev There are some things that, as far as I'm aware, can't be achieved without using aggregations.
For example, getting a random sample from a table - https://docs.mongodb.com/manual/reference/operator/aggregation/sample/
@edwardloveall It sure is! The cool thing about dat is that the user doens't need to know anything about the underlying magic - whole distributed applications can be built on top of the protocol that "just work".
Here's something I've been working on the past few weeks:
dcp - remote file copy, powered by the Dat protocol
Think of it as a replacement for rsync/scp that doesn't require you to have an SSH connection between the two machines.

#rust errors are THE BEST
@rasf Welcome! Wha kind of stuff do you normally develop?
@devthedevel yes indeed!
@devthedevel Yeah I believe that any instances that are connected to this one will show in hashtag searches, and viceversa.
@bkool Meh, Opera is still closed-source and owned by secretive Chinese billionaires.
I recently put together a P2P video conferencing app using WebRTC swarms.
I'd love if people could check it out and give some feedback.
Does anyone have any experience with https://github.com/amark/gun ?
It looks pretty exciting and I'd love to play around with it. What are your thoughts?

@evgeni Oh and I see you're self-learning to code - that's cool.
I've got plenty of experience with Python if you need any help with that :)
