OK, now I'm just mumbling to myself like a div, but https://github.com/hooram/ownphotos looks nice. Might try that.
and thinking about it, two things are obviously missing from everything open and indieweb out there atm - tags and the focusing/surfacing of creative commons content.
A real thrill I had early on in the mid/late 2000s was uploading some relatively inane image, say a cute donkey, only to vanity search my name later on and discover it used in some random local US newspaper.
upon further digging, I've registered for the pixelfed beta instance. Very much not for me. Too streamy, no real organisation (I'd love tags, but albums would be fine), privacy options too simple - very much attracting the instagram rather than me. Might hack together a piwiki server in the interim. Much rather that than give it all over to yet another cloud company.
Anyone #selfhosting / #federating their own photos? I have 4gb downloaded from flickr and not really sure what to do with them. The two leading choices seem to be #piwigo (I like that it's extensible, but feels pretty heavyweight/wordpressy, no #activitypub) and #pixelfed (looks modern, but a bit too instagrammy, and relatively "young").
Would love to hear others' experiences. (excuse the tagspam, throwing stuff at a wall here :D)

✅How to hand code it
Been following the next.js walkthrough and I think I'm out before I've finished learning how to navigate between pages.
It's an isomorphic framework, and magically "just works", but it just doesn't give a shit about "the web" or "people".
The reddest flag was where they suggest changing an a-tag in the Link component to a button and marvel how it still functions. Which is sweet and all, but why aren't we telling devs not to do that? Ever?
I got a Nintendo Switch at the weekend (Let's Go Evee was what tipped me over the line, but I've meant to buy for a while). Terrible initial experience from AO (Nintendo failed to fulfil day one orders, my delivery got missed one the Saturday and then finally received it on Sunday PM). I did get a £30 refund though, which was nice.
Feels a lot more comfortable posting about consumer woes on here where no one's watching. Don't feel like the noisy table in the restaurant screaming for attention.
I switched to DuckDuckGo a few weeks ago, I've consciously switched from the big G for a lot of reasons - mostly privacy.
I dunno how good DDG is - mostly because I'm not looking for hard to find things, so there's no real vector to compare on. One observation though: it's a haven for piracy. You search for a non-major motion picture, you'll get as many DDL and streaming sites as you will information about that picture. Books are the same. No comment, just merely observing.
It's really quite strange being an #ncfc fan at the moment. Last year, we had a similar run of form, but it felt kinda flukey. This time we're good. Like REALLY good.
