Hi, I'm the admin here at stream.void.garden
I'm trying to build a small, friendly community for people who make things and want a chill place to hang out
I'm modelling this community based on advice from runyourown.social
I'm someone who makes mostly digital things, generative art, interactive media, and I'm also learning about electronics and modular synthesisers
@Ludonaut George says hi
I've created a Gitea instance at shed.void.garden
Mostly as a test thing for now, but one thing that's nice is that it's now hosting the code for this Mastodon/Hometown instance
Hey, so I set up Gitea on my server last night, and it's pretty easy (for a Linux server thing), plenty of people running it on Raspberry Pis and other low-spec machines. A nice way to escape the GitHub/GitLab/BitBucket thing.
Also, I pushed the sources to my personal website, if people want to see how it's made
It's a small thing, but stop using master/slave terminology
Here's how to set up Git so new repos will have a new name by default: https://stackoverflow.com/questions/42871542/how-to-create-a-git-repository-with-the-default-branch-name-other-than-master
And now I see what people mean when they say they want an ActivityPub-enabled Git server
It would be cool if fediverse users could post issues, star, and subscribe to the commit/release logs without needing an account on my Gitea instance
I don't intend to have open account registration to this Gitea instance, but I'd like it if people could easily report bugs and fork code as if there was
It's three in the morning, and I'm still just as bad at figuring out how to set up Linux services
But chekkitout, I have my own Gitea server now! It's hosting this brand new Git repo
I started using GitLab because GitHub was doing some shady shit, all GitLab had to do was not do shady shit
GitLab does some super shady shit
With that in mind, I'm going to be setting up my own Git server soon, with a NoShadyShit™ guarantee, which shouldn't be too hard, all I have to do is not be an asshole to marginalised people, and not work with fascist organisations
GitHub: maybe working with ICE is ok? Our employees won’t mind, right?
GitLab: Hold my beer.
HELLO TRANS FRIENDS
I put in a Google Drive folder:
- 265 pdf & pics & others
- 323 bookmarks (in the .html file)
Related one way or an other to transidentity (with a bit of intersectionality here and there)
If you're a cis ally and you'd like to support me doing this kind of work for the community, you're welcome to send me a ko-fi!
It'll go directly in me being able to take some of my work time for this
Thank you so much ✨
Capitalism: Communism would mean the death of ownership! Say goodbye to having any personal goods of your very own.
Also Capitalism: Sure, you have a right to what you own, but we never actually *sold* you a product, we merely provided a service/product on loan for which your payment has currently run out. *said about literally everything*
I made Halloween stickers and prints! You can get them in your house! While supporting me! Amazing 🎃
