J'ai honte de mon travail parfois 🙈 je le mets en open source, sachant délibérément qu'on ne pourra rien en faire...

‘The web is not "open" if nobody new can write a web browser engine. It's the illusion of openness.’

This point, made in an excellent thread over on the bird site, gets to the heart of the matter. What we have today on the web is the illusion of openness.


Today I tried to submit a patch to … what a journey! Learning about first, then trying to install all the build dependencies and miserably failing >_< I still submitted my untested patch without much hope…

Adopt an project: , a fantastic graph visualization tool, whose development seems to have stalled github.com/gephi/gephi

Today I discovered , a package manager, which you are supposed to install with `curl -sSL raw.githubusercontent.com/… | python -`. So you write a package manager but you don't think it is worth it? Really?

Adopting abandoned FOSS projects to maintain them is a rewarding experience. I hope this could happen to , github.com/tabulapdf/tabula, because it's a great tool.

I just don't want to count the number of repositories I need to migrate out of after their princing update. I am still hoping for a quick U-turn on their side, otherwise I will hardly do anything else this month.

I have set up a load balancer for the first time (for the service) and what a satisfaction! It works!

Under the hood, it uses fancy Python3 , a nice revival of cooperative multitasking. What else would you expect for a collaborative knowledge base, after all?
