I am working on a #javafx desktop app for Mastodon. Key goal is to have a seamless experience for multi accounts across multi instances. It is still in alpha stages. So far you can login with multi accounts, view the main 3 feeds, boost, favorite, and view notifications. Help would be greatly appreciated. I will be building out GitHub issues for all the features to get parity with the webapp. It is written in #kotlin using the #tornadofx framework https://github.com/wakingrufus/mastodon-jfx
The entire Apollo 11 computer code is available on @firstname.lastname@example.org, and it's incredible:

do you have good examples of "lowtech" websites?
Using less assets/fonts/energy, but still being nicely usable and with cool aesthetics...
And yes, I already know https://solar.lowtechmagazine.com, this is one of the best examples... :)
Hugs and kisses for your suggestions and boosts!

Today I learned that Rocket.Chat, an open source team communications platform similar to Slack, allows federation! I am a big fan of IRC and XMPP because they are open protocols that allow anyone to set up their own private server. XMPP further allows you to federate your server to other XMPP servers. I definitely need to keep an eye on Rocket.Chat now!
