Recently released Radicle, a peer-to-peer code collaboration stack. Super excited!
🤝 Peer-to-peer — no central servers, no censorship
💻 Local-first — everything's stored on your machine
🔐 Secure by design — no accounts, just crypto 🔑
💕 For the collective — a fresh take on sustainability
@cloudhead Do you see a problem with merge conflicts without a common 'master'/'main' branch for people to touch base on periodically?
@ndpi shouldn’t be a problem for single-maintainer projects, since their repo will essentially act as the canonical upstream. For multi-maintainer projects it’s trickier: maintainers may need to settle on who maintains the canonical repo, eg. Linus for the Linux kernel, but we’re also looking into a bunch of more automated solutions.
@ndpi one of them is just looking at which maintainer has the most recent HEAD, another more expensive one is to use a blockchain or centralized server to checkpoint the latest hash. This could be useful for large projects with lots of maintainers, or projects that want to tightly control merge privileges.
@cloudhead I'm super excited about Radicle!
Very cool to have one of the maintainers here in Merveilles Town :)
I'll be checking it out as soon as there's a Nix package for it.
@maxdeviant hey! Someone in the community was working on a nix package, I wonder if it’s already available 👀
Merveilles is a community project aimed at the establishment of new ways of speaking, seeing and organizing information — A culture that seeks augmentation through the arts of engineering and design. A warm welcome to any like-minded people who feel these ideals resonate with them.
