Hi rustaceans! What are you working on this week? Did you discover something new, you want to share?

    Still working on my P2P Lemmy/Reddit alternative. I made the UI prettier and got CI all figured out. It’s written with Iroh and Tauri, with React on the FE.

    So this week will be filling in the basic features (voting, commenting, etc). And maybe a little bit of testing NAT traversal and whatnot.

    If I get super productive, I can start playing around with decentralized moderation. That’s the most interesting part of the app, and I have some POC code for it, just need to add in the data and start tuning (will probably scrape some Lemmy data 🙃). Once that’s there, I’ll be ready to share my project publicly for the first time (😧).

        Certainly!

        I still need to think about what I want in terms of licensing (it’s currently MPL 2.0), but once I figure that out, I’d love some help. Also, naming things is hard. 🙃

          For the name maybe you could do some sort of play on the expression “spread the word” since it is distributed? Probably not something you want to use verbatim though since it would be hard to search.

            Yeah, I’ve been looking at variations of “handbill.” I have a name with a decent domain and everything, but it’s hard to pronounce by E. Asians and taken by another popular project.

            But I have a fallback plan, so I’m gonna go with it unless I think of something better.
