  • @funkwhale I'll happily open gitlab issues if that's desired.

    Kinda unrelated, I thought I read somewhere that the Podcasts library in subsonic apps (ultrasonic) should show me channels from funkwhale? For me it just errors. I can also find podcasts by search, but they contain no tracks. Only searching for individual episodes works. (Yes, I have ID3 based browsing enabled)

  • @funkwhale not sure what you mean with that, isn't that what I've done?

  • Finally have @AsteroidOS working reliably on my G Watch R. Just took a new battery and a bit if luck in the flashing lottery.

  • @funkwhale also, coukd I propose a "listened" indicator on podcast episodes based in listening history, so I don't have to remember that myself?

  • @funkwhale I've been transferring my playlists over to funkwhale and found it a bit annoying that I can't directly add entire albums to playlists. I'm aware of the add to queue and then transfer to playlist workaround, but that doesn't really work if you want to listen to music while building independent playlists...

  • @dietrich pretty sure it at least used to dump your old profile on the desktop and there is a SUMO article on restoring it iirc

  • Wir sollten mindestens die Gewohnheit staatliche Softwareprojekte als Open Source zu entwickeln aus der COVID-Zeit beibehalten.

  • Thanks to my @Fairphone having Android 9 I can finally use the DoT resolver from @digiges.

  • This is my current home screen in @efoundation OS. Red means proprietary, orange/yellow means open source but only available by proprietary means and green means freely available (and open source).

  • ActivityPub backed fitness tracker.

  • Are there commercial uses of ActivityPub?

  • @fdroidorg @briar oh, there IS a send fdroid button and I just didn't look at the feature well enough. Nice!

  • I think the nearby feature of @fdroidorg is great even if I hope that I'll never have to depend on it. It lets you easily boitstrap things like @briar to other people that weren't prepared. However I wonder how would you get f-droid onto the phones of people around you? I'd imagine sending the APK over Bluetooth should be easy enough, but that assumes you have the APK handy/accessible. I'd suggest a "send f-droid to others" button in the app for this use case.

  • @dietrich you're essentially asking for a self-hosted ecommerce solution with digital entitlements? Or did you have some more book-optimized features in mind?
