In-reply-to > @prologic Is there any plans for DMs to become a feature at all?

So… If we build one, it’ll be a completely separate (but eventually integrated) thing. But I believe at a bare minimum (for me anyway) it has to have:

  • Secure and Private by design
  • Operationally easy to stand up and run on say a RPi
  • Actually have a User Experience that doesn’t suck

In-reply-to > @prologic Is there any plans for DMs to become a feature at all?

To further expand on this… @fastidious and I have been discussing this on/off for a while now and explored all the various options that exists out there including Delta.Chat, Matrix, various XMPP-based solutions, etc. All of them literally suck in terms of their properties of “Self Hosted”, “Private/Secure” or “Ease of use”.

@adi Because apparently PHP is still commonly found in many cheap/free? hosting providers where allegedly nothing else is allowed? 🤔Which to be frank, I don’t really get because Lightsail is essentially free, Vultr VMs are a mere $2.50/month and I’m sure you could do interesting things on some rented space from a friend’s server or infra 😅

In-reply-to > @movq Or folks could choose to not host their feeds over inferior protocols 😂

@fastidious Bahahahah I hope anyone knows I wasn’t being serious, I was jesting of course 😂 But in all seriousness though both gopher:// and gemini:// are “crippled” protocols in my opinion, and that’s fine, they were designed that way. Just don’t expect us to bend over backwards to support things like:

  • Who fetched my feed
  • Please only fetch me if I’ve actually changed
  • Please just fetch from where you were last at
  • Do I even exist?

And so on… 😅

@lyse

A few years back I made the resolution to never execute PHP code again if I can help it. 8-)

Sadly the same here too, I used to actually be a PHP Web Deveoper once upon a time, never again 😅


But congrats @darch I hope pixelblog flouries! Who knows maybe we can incorporate some ideas intp yarnd over time 👌

In-reply-to > Hey @apex :) If you're reading this: In your twtxt feed, make sure to put a literal tab (0x09) between the timestamp and the text. You're currently using a space (0x20) -- some parsers trip on that.

@movq Or folks could choose to not host their feeds over inferior protocols 😂

It isn’t just the User-Agent that doesn’t work either, Last-Modified, If-Modified-Since, Range requests, HEAD and so on 🤣 You know useful things 🤦‍♂️

@apex Congrats and welcome 🥳

In-reply-to > Twitter Close Friends Feature in Beta Now Called 'Flock' With 150-Person Limit Twitter continues to work on a new feature that lets users post certain tweets to a limited number of close friends in a parallel timeline on the social media platform.

This is something I want to support in Yarn eventually too with “Private Feeds” 👌 I believe it’s on thee roadmap I blogged about a couple of months ago 🤔

In-reply-to > I was on a video call with Attract.AI and the co-founders jumped on our video call to say hi and see how I was doing (we use them for recruiting in my current day job) -- Well this happened! 😂

@fastidious I still can’t work out how to solve more than one side ! 😅 I’m still struggling on my own, I want to keep at it until I figure it out on my own 😂

In-reply-to > Wondering what (non-pod) twtxt clients are being used out there. twtxt doesn't work on modern python versions, txtnish is no longer maintained. I've thinking of becoming a tt user, but it still has so many features missing...

@jdtron ’s client is now listed on Yarn.social’s landing page. @~duriny Shall we list your twtr client now? 🤔


#x5xi77a

Oh @screem there is also a Mobile App too, it’s still in development and also needs a bit more work/love (finding it hard to find folks to help me with this, know any Flutter devs?) – Anyway it does work quite well and quite a few folks use it every day 👌

Let me know if you want to get on that bandwagon, otherwise the Mobile Web interface also works quite nicely 👌

In-reply-to > @fastidious Agreed, however we've had a monopoly in a lot of areas in Australia and they haven't taken the initiative with faster speeds without mind blowing cost, unfortunately. Government intervention was actually a blessing to stop the monopoly.

@screem Oh! I think you meant to reply to #6j4xf6a but that’s okay 😅

In-reply-to > It's #ilovefs day! All my to Free Software users, creators and activists. Our movement is more needed than ever, today is our day! ;-)
