The Key Principles of the IndieWeb.

— Own your data, content, metadata and your identity.
— Publish data for humans first, machines second.
— Scratch Your Own Itches. Make tools, templates, etc. for yourself first.
— Use what you make!
— Document your stuff.
— Open source your stuff!
— UX and design is more important than protocols, formats, and data models.
— Build platform agnostic platforms.
— Longevity. Build for the long web.
— Plurality.
— Have fun.

Open-source hardware - with its practical straight lines and flat surfaces, clearly designed to be 3D printed and CNC milled and taken apart and messed with/repaired by the end user - looks 5x as cool as curvy-ass generic corporate proprietary shit don't @ me

Just so you know, "git -amend" doesn't amend anything.

It gets parsed as: git -a -m 'end'

That is, it commits all modified files with a message that just says "end"

I suffer so you don't have to 🤦‍♂️

Mastodon is written in Ruby. The creator of Ruby, @matz is on Mastodon (albeit inactive). Mastodon uses Sidekiq for background processing. The creator of Sidekiq, @mperham is on Mastodon. It's kind of a bizarre feeling.

@hsribei Yep, with a webapp I also know I have control over:

- push notifications
- sharing location data
- userstyles (via extensions)
- whether it's allowed to run Service Workers, JS, etc. (via extensions)

Every couple of months I like to share with new people or people on new instances how to add #Mastodon timelines into #rss feeds:
mastodon.sdf.org/@cosullivan.a

Roll your own: https://[federated.instance]/@[userid].atom

Could be worth trying if your favourite accounts are 8-16hrs away, or if you detect spotty synchronization issues between instances. #Mastodon101 #rss

@pinafore especially cool because it is actually useful offline, as it offlines already-seen data. Some apps give you a useless app shell and call themselves offline-capable.

I'm very new to this. So there's no "boost with comment" option?

Using @pinafore as a client. Offline-first PWAs? Hell yes. Might also become an excuse to peek into Svelte.

I'm more like Andre Staltz. A cyberpunk dreaming of a solarpunk life.

Sunbeam City is a Libertarian Socialist solarpunk instance. It is ran democratically by a cooperative of like-minded individuals.
