In-reply-to » @prologic I'm taking a look at yarn.social search codebase. Just created a tiny PR to add some documentation around setup. I was thinking that I might start with "Document how to use the query language really well" since that would be a good learning exercise. It looks like maybe https://search.twtxt.net/help would be a good place to put that work. Were you wanting to put any search help text anywhere else in the UI?

@prologic@twtxt.net Yeah, I figured I’d finally dox myself (my git.mills.io profile). 😉

re memory usage: is there some memory target you’re trying to hit? I would suspect that it partly depends on the data set, but maybe that plus search stats could give me enough to figure out a good set of test data.

@abucci@anthony.buc.ci I agree with you on all points. I want to clarify that while I think we should build stuff that preserves peoples rights, I’m am strongly opposed to forcing them to use it. It’s entirely possible that what I build might be misguided and actually hurt those ends. It might also just suck. Ultimately, I think people’s free choice should be the decider.

@abucci@anthony.buc.ci @prologic I agree that IPv6 would/will be a great thing for decentralization. However, I think folks would like easy to use software regardless of whether it’s centralized or decentralized. I have found a deep lack of care about privacy and rights in general from your average citizen. They just want nice stuff. They don’t care if it means giving away rights/becoming slaves.

In-reply-to » @prologic Any plans/thoughts on implementing the twtxt registry protocol as part of yarn.social?

@prologic It’s really easy to publish a flat twtxt file from just about any client you can imagine. The hard part is being notified of mentions and discovering new feeds. There is some degree of centralization/always on needed for that piece. By standardizing the hard part to an interchangeable API, it would allow a diversity of clients to be built with little effort. Just plug in your preferred search engine(s) and you’re good to go.

In-reply-to » @prologic Any plans/thoughts on implementing the twtxt registry protocol as part of yarn.social?

@tkanos@netbros.com That’s why I was thinking it might be easy to implement. I am looking at implementing my own client/server, and it would be nice to have as few protocols as possible to deal with. Now that I’m saying this, I don’t actually know how many people are using twtxt registries vs yarn.social json protocol.

In-reply-to » 💡 TIL: Today I learned that there is nothing special about pkg/ inside of Go projects. It is just like any other sub-package structure you might otherwise define in your project. It just adds an extra part to your imports. I think it's actually confusing at best and just unnecessary typing and an unnecessary sub-structure. Just keep your packages in the top-level and be done with it 👌

@prologic I sometimes wonder if this is a breadth of experience problem. I know I did this a lot when I was first starting out. As I’ve learned more programming languages, I have noticed that I’ve gotten better at following each language’s idioms.

@prologic Sometimes it feels like a cultural import from the Java world. I work a lot with Kubernetes code and it feels a bit like a bunch of Java devs wrote it. Good Java devs, but Java devs nonetheless.

@prologic I think many projects largely started using it because of “the standard go project layout” which is not actually endorsed by the go core dev team. I generally advise against it for similar reasons.

In-reply-to » You don't want to be on Cloudflare's naughty list: https://www.ctrl.blog/entry/cloudflare-ip-blockade.html

@abucci@anthony.buc.ci Wow I agree that’s terrible. Definitely gonna think twice about using Cloudflare in the future. This is potential lost revenue for any company who uses their services!
