It's very early days, and I have a lot of design work to do, but is on its way to becoming a reality!

If you'd like to to making this alternative as good as possible, check out the project on GitLab. Ideas and designs will help just as much as code:

I just uploaded new features and bug fixes for (lexicon.ga)! There's custom alphabetical order, custom CSS, and more!

Check out the release notes for all the details:
github.com/Alamantus/Lexiconga

(Hey, custom CSS means you can use fonts in your dictionary! Check this blog post to learn how to set it up: blog.lexicon.ga/post/186302976)

In case you missed it...

If you're looking for a free open alternative to Amazon's Goodreads, there's a project just started called #Readlebee. You can follow them at:

@Readlebee

You can help out with feature suggestions and code at:

Readlebee uses a wikidata-based book database maintained by @inventaire which you can contribute to:

twitter.com/sweekbat/status/11 "My roommate got super stoned a couple weeks back and found out you can order a personalized big toblerone. He immediately forgot about it until it showed up last night"

I just imported my Goodreads library into @inventaire and it was such a smooth, amazingly easy process!

I was trying to update the information for an author on Mastodon (@dmoonfire) but it said the Mastodon address was invalid. I tried both the handle and the url, and both were called invalid. Is it not set up to allow addresses outside of Mastodon.social, or was I entering the address wrong?

Hey all, does anyone know a good place to get affordable winter coats for women with larger hips? It appears that everything my wife finds is really long and specifically designed for human-sized pencils.

Any websites or shops in or near Denver would be best! I'm asking here because I have no idea how to search for this on a search engine...

Thanks in advance!

#Readlebee's goal is to keep only community interactions and reviews in its database and just pull book information from external sources. Currently, it's using @inventaire 's API as its source for book information.

Since there's a lot that still needs to be set up before coding contributions can be really helpful to the project, one great way to contribute to the project is to actually help clean up and expand #Inventaire's database!

See this page to learn how:

For anyone looking at this post's thread, here is the new, separate #Readlebee account!

@Readlebee

I'll post stuff about Readlebee and its progress here from now on. :)

Wow, a lot of new people are following me because of . I was going to wait to make a separate account for Readlebee when the project was more mature, but should I do that now? I post some inane shit sometimes (but also some cute dogs sometimes), and I don't want people who only care about the project to have to endure that just for the occasional project update...

Thoughts?

I tried to use Kast (kast.gg) last night to stream because it seemed like a fun idea, but it turns out the allow *only* Chrome users to view from the browser. Not any browser *based on* Chromium, but *only* Google Chrome!

I /cannot/ understand that. I could understand throwing up a warning for other browsers to say it might not work perfectly because it was built for Chrome and then allowing them to try to load it, but instead they straight up deny access 🀯 πŸ€¦β€β™‚οΈ

And that's all for tonight! If you hopped in, I hope you enjoyed the music! 😊

Hey everyone! I'm streaming some development right now on Twitch! Come join me if you'd like!

twitch.tv/alamantusgamedev

I'm desperately trying to get shit set up for streaming, but damn, it's hard... Hopefully I can stream for a little while tonight!

Does Kast work outside of Chrome? Or are there any objections to Kast? I truly don't know anything about this streaming shit.

The best propaganda is the propaganda you don't notice. Which is why you need to mute and block any/all commercials. Don't just ignore it. They're chipping away at you.
If you can't mute, reply to it. Yes, talk to the tv. Make the fearmongering sound silly, aggressively regect the rhetorical questions, groan when a man is useless at housework. Get the whole car/house in on it.

Where do people stream writing code? Is it all just Twitch or is there somewhere better? Twitch and YouTube are the only good platforms I know about for streaming. I'm thinking of streaming some Readlebee code tonight with some music.

Hey Instagram users, did you know you can export your account?

Pixelfed will be rolling out experimental Instagram Import soon!

@carolinagiorno I thought I saw a notification from you earlier about not being able to find the Readlebee Gitter chat, but I can't find the message anywhere! Just in case I wasn't imaging it, the chat had to move, and I haven't had a good chance to update my pinned post with the new link.

If you still need it, the new link is:

Hey wtf, Youtube just did the "Are you still watching?" bullshit that Netflix has (or used to? I haven't seen it in a little while). If Youtube is gonna make it required to watch longer-length videos for creators to make revenue, they can't pull that shit!

My wife is going to be out on Friday night, which means I get more or less the whole night to work on , which is very exciting to me! I'm gonna set up a database connection and then the ball is really gonna get rolling! πŸ˜ƒ
