We are very much looking forward to many wonderful things that federation within forges can support.
Take the lead! The lead section-writing contest of English Wikipedia has come back.
This is particularly important for us at Kiwix, so if you want to help, here is why 👇 (#thread)
Partly EU-funded security forces of member states like Croatia, Romania, Poland, and Greece continue to violate human rights (and law) as countless investigations have revealed.
Meanwhile, the @EU_Commission "[...] continues to have serious concerns".
Frontex will kein Bargeld von @fragdenstaat
There was this incredibly useful extension  for the Atom editor that allowed one to pin documentation popups that normally display if you hover over an expression (or press whatever keybinding you have configured). I.e. the hover popups would become permanently visible next to your code until you unpinned them.
Does anyone know if something similar exists for VS Code (or any other editor)?
Today I played a bit with Builder + deviced after reading this:
Builder compiles your project for the target architecture (in my case a OnePlus 6 / aarch64) using qemu and installs it on your mobile device (without having to use a cable!).
Cease and desist from Facebook to Barinsta, a FOSS Instagram client
At approximately 21:33 UTC July 26 2021, I have been hit with a cease & desist letter from a law firm repsenting Facebook. The letter was sent to one of my personal email address as well as Barinsta's public inbox (and as a result, it is published). In response, the source code has been taken down, and all promotional materials within my control has been adjusted to reflect the fact.
While I believe it is nearly impossible to fight a resourceful multinational firm and reinstate the app, we will still try to get as much resources as we could to navigate in this crisis.
At this dire moment, I ask you to do 1 thing: Please let others know what is happening here. Such bullying behaviour against a young university student is in no way excusable. Such bullying behaviour against many internet users is in no way excusable.
It has been an honour of a lifetime to serve as one of the main contributors of Barinsta. I am forever grateful for the countless supporters along the way.
Thank you & Best Regards,
