The Feneas forum


Today we launch our discussion forum powered by #Discourse to help #federated folk have a place for cross-platform collaboration discussion.

Welcome!

So Gab is coming to the fediverse by converting their system from proprietary to a fork of Mastodon (why a fork?). I have thoughts but umm should be interesting... #fediverse https://gab.com/gab/posts/VnZRendFcDM1alBhNm9QeWV4d0xidz09
#fediverse fediverse

Yeah, but if they were planning to expose their closed social network to a giant external one with hundreds of thousands of users, you'd think they'd at least say so in layman's terms, no?

Well, it's like if they said they're setting up an email server that uses "SMTP". I'd assume they mean that SMTP will be available for talking to other servers, even if not specifically mentioned. Since they do mention ActivityPub, I'd also assume they mean it will be used to talk to other servers :)



 
Hats off to the Matrix.org team for publishing the post mortem on their hack. It's painful to admit mistakes and security lapses but this can help others learn from their mistakes #cybersecurity #fediverse matrix.org/blog/2019/05/0…

Thanks, this is always helpful



 
I'm having a bit of "writers block" on developing recently. Trying to ruminate on it to get past it. #programming #opensource #fediverse

@Hank G have you ever touched the Social Home project by @Jason Robinson 🐍🍻?

It's Python, not PHP and to my knowledge the project's team doesn't mind integrating different Fediverse protocols too

@senya I've chatted with him about it but haven't played with it yet.

@Hank G maybe there you'll find your happiness :)



 
If you know a language other than English, you can contribute to many different Fediverse-related projects by translating their text.

Here are some translation links:

🐰 Friendica

🎧 Funkwhale

🐤 Halcyon

🐘 Mastodon
https://github.com/tootsuite/mastodon/blob/master/CONTRIBUTING.md#translations

📺 PeerTube
https://github.com/Chocobozzz/PeerTube/blob/develop/support/doc/translation.md

Are there other links to add to this list?

#Localisation #Localization #Translation #Languages #Fediverse

Hmm, Peertube needs to learn a bit about L10n. That way they won't find many helpers.

For our open source bibliography manager JabRef we use crowdin for translation management. Really simple and easy to use



 

Friendica Dev Environment


Alright! After many hours getting up to speed on #PHP #phpstorm and #LAMP in general finally got a dev environment running with #friendica ...I think I'll celebrate with a little Stardew Valley before moving on :) #fediverse



 

FOSDEM 2019 Was Awesome


Just landed back in the states from my first #FOSDEM #fosdem2019 I'll be doing a long blog post on it later but it was great meeting people from across global the #fediverse and #opensource community.

@hankg was great to meet you in real life!
