The browser is qtwebengine based and they backported it to a semi recent version of Chromium.

As I said, the port started years ago. They already skipped 18.04. Once 20.04 actually works, an upgrade to 22.04 should not be so difficult as much less changed under the hood between those versions. You can’t constantly try to hit a moving target and 20.04 is still supported a few more years.

Ubuntu Touch is a highly customized version of Ubuntu 16.04 that still depends on Upstart instead of Systemd. This sadly was a major undertaking to change under the hood and the small team has been working on that for years.

Looks like you will even be able to buy it from the official store with UT preinstalled.

early-stage bootable version of Ubuntu Touch based on 20.04 available
Looks like it is finally happening and an upgrade to 22.04 should be much easier luckily.

The Mate desktop (Gnome2 based) has a similar Netbook interface mode.

Yeah, I kinda agree. But at least advocating for dense affordable housing is not totally unrelated to Solarpunk.


Yeah it has some learning curve. Personally I am not very fond of Age of Empire like RTS, but 0 A.D. can be quite fun in multiplayer coop.

But if you plan to play it on a LAN or such ask your friends to try it out in a CPU skirmish first, otherwise they will be too lost to enjoy the game on first try.

Indeed, that corner mechanic takes a bit to get used to, but feels quite natural after that :)

Good text I like to link from time to time :) So I thought it might fit here as well.

Actually, they promote it as a “simplistic OIDC provider”, but it is also a really awesome OpenLDAP web-management interface including delegating user & group management, password self-service and user invites.

Can be also purchased on [Steam](https://store.steampowered.com/app/1993830/ROTA/) and [itch.io](https://harmonyhoney.itch.io/rota)

Still, why EV cars and Solar Punk? Solar Punk is pretty anti car in general and rather imagines dense walkable cities with electric public transport.

I plan to run this on a solar powered ARM SBC where the Lemmy pict-rs image uploads will be already somewhat of a challenge, so Peertube is sadly not in the cards due to traffic and storage requirements.

I think Google makes that a requirement for Chomebooks, same with Mesa GPU drivers.

Looks like that by lucky accident (?) it should work out of the box, really cool. Just some minor differences that could be fixed, but the main stuff happens to use the same parameter names :)

By id seems to work: https://slrpnk.net/api/v3/community?id=4112

But https://slrpnk.net/api/v3/community?name=foss just results in error: "couldnt_find_community"

Sadly by id doesn’t work for my usecase as I want to use the same webfinger address of the communty as the chatroom address on XMPP, and I only know the name not the id for that.

Edit: ah, that works only for non-federated communities: https://slrpnk.net/api/v3/community?name=farming

or with the full address: https://slrpnk.net/api/v3/community?name=foss@beehaw.org

I think I like the idea better to just offer chat rooms on here. Most people (should) have already their XMPP or Matrix account which which they can join such federated XMPP rooms. But we could also provide a simple web-client that can be used without an account.

Email is out of the questions, nearly impossible to host these days due to the excessive spam filtering.

Bookstack isn’t really a classic wiki, more something to write and catalogue books with.

No, how can I list the details of a specific community that I know the name off? GetCommunity just returns a blank page and list doesn’t seem to allow specifying a specific community.

Hmm, I tried querying for individual communities but it just gives a blank page. What would be the syntax for that?

Thanks! I think the first link should probably work 🤔

Edit: odd, it only seems to list 10 communities.

JSON API endpoint for communities?
Does Lemmy have some public JSON API to query information about communities? I would like to adapt this to automatically configure XMPP chatrooms for each Lemmy community: https://modules.prosody.im/mod_muc_http_defaults.html Thanks!

We could just run it as a pure muc service without user accounts, meaning that you would need a xmpp account elsewhere but we could have chatrooms on the domain.

Maybe there is even a way to automatically create a chatroom for each community. Need to investigate that. I think there is some prosody plugin that might be adaptable for the lemmy API to do that?

Edit: yeah seems like something that might be doable with this: https://modules.prosody.im/mod_muc_http_defaults.html

I think this piece vastly underestimates the necessary changes in the next few decades, but still… food for thought.

That’s a fair take I guess. Although the author of the video is a relatively well known Anarchist and is surely aware of what I wrote.

Regarding your last point: you can’t really divide the means (aesthetics) and the desired outcome. If you do that your outcome will be inevitably different from what you set out to do. So while Solar Punk is not so in-your-face political, I think it also does not try to hide its Anarchist roots for anyone who bothers looking for them. If that turns away certain people that is probably for the better as otherwise those people would likely try to distort the idea of Solar Punk (which is a well recognized risk; green-washing and the like).

Other possible stuff to provide via slrpnk.net?
What other services would people be interested to have available via slrpnk.net? Keeping in mind that it should not be too resource heavy on the server I was thinking of maybe a [Bookstack Wiki](https://www.bookstackapp.com/) for collaborative writing of fiction and non-fiction? A XMPP chat service would also be easy to add. Sadly Lemmy currently AFAIK offers no account integration options, so that will make things a bit annoying.
