@tomupom Drupal can be a real drag to work with. I've had on/off 4 years experience working with it and it's not great.
I have found Laravel a better alternative, with more granular control, however you have to create most everything from the ground up.

@0xbiel You should also try Cataclysm: Dark Days Ahead if you haven't already, great ascii game
Also, in df after you've grown your world in the normal fortress mode, check it out in adventure mode


I've luckily been able to find free software for almost everything I do professionally, however it would be nice to see FOSS alternatives for:

- Music production software similar to something like Ableton
- Graphic design + UX software that supports multiple artboards similar to Affinity Designer in performance as well as features

@awalvie There are two that I could find that worked via ActivityPub ie can be federated, they might be work taking a look.

This company is trying to create a more modern Lisp machine built upon CADR. They released 1.0 last month, they're making some awesome progress on this.


@aadil Also, make sure it's accessible for people, which mean following semantic HTML so it can be read properly by screen readers and other accessibility tools.

@npisanti really good design doc, I may give fish a try sometime soon!

@rainonwires If you make some doom wads I will gladly test them out, I love playing new wads I find

@jameschip Immersion is important when learning a language. I speak Greek around my family and am used to hearing it around me, but f I didn't hear the language being used around me often I don't think I'd know it as well.

If you can find a good podcast or show in that language with transcriptions available in English then that may help with immersion and with being able to break down what things mean. I took this approach with Japanese and it helped a lot.

@peregrine Are you using Alpine as your OS? tbh I've only used Alpine for things like Containers and VMs

It's live!

HTML and CSS simple tips and tricks for your website. :cooldog:

The goal is to help you with easy tricks to make the HTML of your website accessible, readable by everyone and optimized for low bandwidth. I cover a LOT of things in these 20+ pages of text and I still need to add one or two more.

I'll share some parts in the next days, thanks for everyone who took time to proofread this huge beast. :tealheart:


@royniang That's actually really cool, I may give this a try sometime soon with a 9front vm

@neauoire I feel that people should document their struggles or their processes more.
Most problems I've faced software-wise come from lack of documentation or lack of issue trackers for said project, lots of lisp and esolang projects suffer from this from what I've seen.

@yoshiki Are you looking for ones on the web or on mobile?
On F-Droid there's a couple but Tusky being the most popular.
On the web there's Pinafore, I'm not sure what else.

@RMW I've been thinking about perhaps moving my site to org and ox-hugo may be what I choose, thanks for the recommendation.

I spent the morning creating an Org-Roam directory that contains all my org files with an index that references each one.
Now that the basis for what will be my private wiki is setup I can start filling it out with info regarding projects for clients, papers I'm writing, Blog drafts, server info, etc.
I can see myself using this for the foreseeable future as a sort of database of all the things I'm working on.

@amorris I made a similar mistake and lost the 2FA codes from my phone. I'm hoping that I have a backup key somewhere.

This post reminded me though that I need to find a better way of storing that data.

@cone That sounds really neat, I've been looking at setting up a VPS for my wife and I to play minecraft every now and again, and so I can tool around with some mods.
