Firefox' "Reader View" is amazing, especially when paired with this addon that lets you activate it pretty much everywhere
A little button in the address bar re-styles the page for great readability, with some options to customise for your needs
@dzuk I'm excited to see that this is coming, it's great to see a new addition to this space!
I really like the look of all of the experiments you were posting before, and if Parastat looks even half as good, it looks like it'll be lovely to use
@themoep Yeah, I was just hanging out on the Change.org tech forum between coding cycles, and because I'd found so many workarounds and undocumented features, I was answering other people's questions
Basically, for a few months, *I* was their tech support guy
@jakub Oh yeah, we were even technically in a "partnership" with them, with privileged access to their technical team
It was so... so... bullshit
The whole project got changed to heck because there's literally no way for us to connect a user on our app to a user on theirs
No Oauth, no token, nothing to generate a link, nothing...
@jakub or make an app that integrates with Change.org and get the best of both, bad/deprecated/unstable api, bad docs (if you contact support, they'll send you a link to their forum where someone has the same problem and has been fixing other people's API issues, the twist is that that someone is you)
@ebel i often try to consider intent, and the balance of power when assessing this kind of thing
there is never a blanket rule that works, you always have to exercise some form of subjective evaluation to decide what's acceptable or not, imho
@electret if it's not super private stuff and you'd like me to build and send, let me know
@electret also, if you have available updates that you've not installed yet, those can take up a lot of space, either complete the updates or remove the installation files until you need them
@electret yeah, macs really aren't great with disk space
i'm considering installing a bigger ssd in mine, just so it stops being a hassle
@electret although, reading your first post again, i don't remember xcode needing a full 20gb
maybe it's just because i've always had it installed and just need the updates that aren't quite as heavy?
@electret this was entirely commandline, i've only ever opened xcode gui when working on some iOS projects a couple years ago
typing "brew install tldr" will request a full xcode installation, because that's how you compile c++ for macos
@electret xcode is terrible
like, it's not a terrible piece of software, but just having to have that massive chunk of software, in its entirety, just to recompile a tiny app is terrible
