Tiktok sure has a strict vetting program for allowing developer access to their API. I've circumvented it for now by just scraping the website, although it's been tough since it's all JS lazy loading.
i've been on fedi nearly three years now and for all its flaws, it's one of the most 'my-kind-of-people' places i've ever spent time online.
also, it's become difficult to imagine trying to nurture any meaningful conviviality or community in a medium driven and constantly interrupted by advertising.
dokku didn't work properly, yunohost is too limited, proxmox too advanced.
My goldilocks zone is shrinking rapidly.
#suggestions are welcome
i bet software quality would increase with no loss of ""productivity"" if it was common practice to budget 20% of a developer's time to study
and i dont mean (primarily) keeping up with new tech, libraries, and language features, etc
i mean drilling on core stuff and basics to stay fast and sharp, make sure you know why it works the way it does and you haven't accidentally absorbed any antipatterns
to bring you from "copy-paste and change a bit" to knowing the best way to build from scratch
Some Mastodon 3.4.0 tweaks
A few tweaks in the forthcoming Mastodon 3.4.0:
- new users can receive follow suggestions (it'll only suggest you if you've chosen your account to be discoverable, and you don't require follow request approval)
- "Lock account" is now "Require follow requests"
- when boosting, you can select Public/Unlisted/Followers-Only privacy for that boost
- When a post contains mentions of two or more users who have the same username, but on different domains, render their names with domain to help disambiguate them
No one is illegal! The Detention Center of #Rotterdam has been around for more than a decade, playing a big role in the criminalization and marginalisation of #refugees. A cynical symbol of #neoliberalism, the de facto prison was the first Dutch detention center built with the help of private corporations.
It's a good example on how the pain and suffering of war torn human beings is just another source of income for our rich overlords.
Our home is our planet, not arbitrary lines drawn in the sand or fenced off by barbed wires.
Turn your anger into action: come to the demonstration, show solidarity with people imprisoned in DCR and raise your voice for a world without borders!
