Hello everyone!

My name is Johannes. I live in Germany and am currently studying computer science.I’ve been a FLOSS dev for a few years now and am currently working on getting end-to-end encryption into GNOME’s Matrix client Fractal.

I’m interested in systems programming, desktop app development, cryptography and hacking.

Pushing for more accessibility and diversity in the Free Software community is one of my major goals.

Expect me to post about my projects, stuff happening in the FLOSS world, adjacent political stuff and more.

Finally this happened!

#Friendica 2019.01 release now officially supports #activitypub out of the gate.

github.com/friendica/friendica

From their #changelong:

''The AP functionality was tested with Hubzilla, #Mastodon, #NextcloudSocial, #Osada, #PeerTube, with #Pixelfed and #Pleroma.''

Another bunch of users to interact with... a more viable alternative to FB and #Diaspora, because #activitypub (and #zot) is the future of decentralised social net.

Thank you guys,

two photos I took from my backyard of the full moon and lunar eclipse totality tonight, just a couple hours apart.

I have recently spent more time learning RxJS, I'm really enjoying it more and more.

Here I am passing the changes of a form to a processing function while also making a HTTP call to search for data. I added the debounce to prevent unneeded network calls, even though the switchMap operator will cancel the previous Observable stream when a new one starts.

No need to unsubscribe either since I'm using the async pipe in my html template.

Started over fresh (again) using jest for testing and was actually able to get much farther along in testing than ever before!

So it looks like I've got it finally figured out. Wheeeeeew!

I learned something pretty cool today. You ever heard a song on a YouTube video that was electronic music? It might have been Monstercat. Monstercat has terms where YouTubers who make money via advertisement must pay them $5 a month in order to use them in monetized videos, but unmonetized videos can use them for free. However, their page only lists certain platforms they have deals for like YouTube and Twitch.

Due to how PeerTube is decentralized and doesn't do ad revenue, I was worried about whether or not I could use their songs in a video without risking an entire instance. So, I sent a support request, and they confirmed that it would be fine if people use their songs on PeerTube as long as the Monsercat, the artist, and the song all get proper credit!

So if you're looking to publish on PeerTube and need background music, Monstercat has your back.

Dining out alone (out on a business trip). My thoughts are noisy though.
