Not better enough to be worth missing out on all the features GH provides that CB doesn’t. I’d rather they wait for the right platform than have to migrate a second time when CB takes Lemmy down

There’s a twitter that tweets daily union election news and there’s a good amount of attempts to scrape NLRB’s website like unionelections.org, but I’ve been wanting something focused on strikes for forever

Looks like they rely on manually updating a json file for this extension to work, but they use striketracker.ilr.cornell.edu to keep up to date with new strikes. What an amazing resource! Thanks for sharing, OP

idk I kinda love it. I don’t get it, but I 100% support this person

not deadly for you, just deadly for others. Masks aren’t to protect yourself, they’re to protect other people. Something that seems to be extremely difficult to grasp for Americans that have had decades of being told that they’re the center of the universe

They might try to push out actual posts that would show up on other instances.

Not sure what “defederate” means though. Can’t all the major instances just like… stop following tumblr?

Not sure it matters

Hope so

Lol. But on a more serious note, I don’t think it’ll happen until we reach the tipping point of non-tech people getting on it. I had a friend who tried it years ago and it was all just tech nerds so he eventually fell off of it. Yes the business and personalities side of it is big too, but I don’t think it’ll happen until people are joining because their irl friends are on it

Mastodon needs more angsty teens making relatable meirl depression memes

Ah didn’t realize there was a Phabricator successor, thanks, will add these and your comments on GitTea to the main post

I see, I wasn’t aware. Thanks for the info!

Let’s do em all!:

  • GitHub: most mature/reliable
  • GitLab: the most popular and mature GitHub alternative. Generally seen as a more ethical alternative since it’s not owned by MS and is open-sourced, but is still criticized for it’s open-core business model
  • Bitbucket: the “third party” of the bunch that’s no better than the first
  • GitTea: the “fourth party” that’s actually cool but kinda not quite there yet. Worth keeping an eye because it’s the most likely to integrate with ActivityPub soon
  • Gogs: great, but you need to self-host. GitTea is just a community hosted fork of Gogs
  • SourceForge: wow, they’re still around?
  • Codeberg: centered around open-source projects only. Managed by a non-profit org
  • Launchpad: run by Canonical (Ubuntu), has a lot of other features/goals than just hosting code
  • GitBucket: a self-hostable GitHub clone written in Scala
  • NotABug: another “liberated” version of Gogs
  • Radicle: imo, one of the most interesting alternatives to look at. It’s unique in that it’s build on p2p technologies. Unfortunately, it seems quite coupled with many projects in the web3 space
  • Pagure: RedHat developed git forge that can be selfhosted
  • Phorge: community fork of Facebook’s internal Phabricator forge tool which was deprecated in 2011 but got a lot of things right that GitHub is often criticized for
  • Heptapod: Gitlab modified to work with Mercurial
  • Fossil: self-contained small team collaboration tool doing its own thing entirely
  • Kallithea: git and hg web frontend with code review functionality (community fork of Rhode code)
  • RhodeCode: git and hg frontend (original codebase where Kallithea forked off)
  • Sourcehut: email centric git frontend

Would love to see other people’s one-liner blurbs on these as well

EDIT: added additional alternatives and comments (thanks @poVoq@slrpnk.net especially)

What’s wrong with GitLab? Definitely the most mature alternative.

If you’re really interested in something that will not go down or get discontinued anytime soon, I’d also suggest taking a look at Radicle which is P2P and free

Tbh I don’t think it’s enough to “feel bad about it”. I’ve been in a lot of situations like this where they becoming the opening of a huge rift

If you wanna keep things sustainable you should probably reach out and make some sort of peace or at least let them know you care about and respect them. Might even have to make a few compromises to keep some sort of peace and show you’re willing to work with them

The thing everyone wants the most in politics isn’t necessarily that people AGREE with them. It’s that they UNDERSTAND them. Open up a dialogue and send some thoughtful messages showing you take their concerns seriously and are ultimately fighting the same fight

Sorry I’m confused. Is @DankZedong@lemmygrad.ml praising the book or condemning it? It was written by a Marxist-Leninist, embraced by Putin, taught in the Russian public school system since 2009, and is very critical of Stalin and the gulags (the author spent 8 years in a gulag)

Eh. Probably a good way to limit spam and commercial influence that plagues most attempts at building review sites. I think this is one of the few valid uses of the technique though I’m sure there are other routes they could’ve taken. But things like reputations and trust systems are a big engineering feat to accomplish and get right

maybe they just don’t like gov Phil Murphy using it as a convenient virtue signal while vetoing bills to extend aid to houseless folks in the middle of winter? 20-40% of lgbtq+ folks are houseless (compared to 5-10% overall)

Been doxxed before. 4chan believed my friend was “the president of antifa” lmao. But believe me you won’t regret being overly careful but you will regret not being careful enough

Which international observers has Russia cited? All I saw was some German energy CEO who “took holiday” to go see it. He was “impressed by the transparency” but also said, “I assess what I see, in the full knowledge that I am only being allowed to see what I should see.”

Was there any others?

Yeah, my native language is uncommon enough (haven’t seen it posted here yet) that I feel like revealing it would give too much away

You can just look at the polling from before the invasion and see that those areas were always pro-Russia. Polling done under and by the Ukrainian gov’t

Unpopular opinion, but it was probably Poland. The only way Russia can send gas to Europe now is through the Yamal–Europe pipeline which they control

I think equating “damage to property” and “damage to human (or more-than-human) lives” under the same banner of “violence” is a capitalist ploy. It’s used to discredit riots and justify police killings because “both sides” did a violence

The violence was done over the long term. Forcing people to be reliant on exploitation of mother earth for their own survival. All that happened was a bubble popped. We should focus on who made the bubble more than who popped it

Sorry if this seems out of place, but I think collapse is often framed as something we'll lose. I think it's important to remember things like this that will be gained We didn't abandon incredible architectures like this because we "advanced" passed them. We abandoned them because nails and bricks got cheap to make and mass produced architecture became the norm Collapse shows us the true costs of industrial building methods and forces us to face what we've turned into "economic externalities"
