Just published a short guide for finding stuff on #PeerTube, along with how you actually subscribe to channels.
I have a number of channel recommendations for anyone that's wondering "Where the heck do I watch stuff?"
(eternal apologies to everyone that might gripe, I'm still working on a Medium replacement)
@orekix right now, both. I'm trying to build one in Elixir, but if I fail I will invest in an alternative.
@deadsuperhero kick ass good info!
@deadsuperhero Good article. Looks like my peertube instance is too out of date for that, though. Humm...
@catgirl Encourage your admin to update. PeerTube has an upgrade script that's really easy to run: https://github.com/Chocobozzz/PeerTube/blob/develop/support/doc/production.md#upgrade
@catgirl Stylish tracks browsing history across all websites.
Install Stylus, migrate stylesheets from Stylish to Stylus, and nuke Stylish.
@dredmorbius Makes sense to me.
@catgirl I kept Stylish installed but disabled for a few days to confirm the migration before blowing it away, but It Just Worked[tm].
@dredmorbius I don't actually need Stylish to reskin the web for me, generally speaking. "Dark Reader" is a much simpler solution for that. (Apparently it can do static CSS stuff too now?)
I just wanted a quick hotfix for this one particular website deciding to be cheeky and slip in an "overflow: hidden" where it doesn't belong on me. 🤷
@catgirl It's overkill for basics, but tremendously valuable for its power and flexibility.
@dredmorbius I like it. This suits me.
@catgirl Of possible interest, a CSS bestiary:
@deadsuperhero Isn't Plume the Medium replacement? The styling isn't all there yet, but functionally it fills the same niche.
@trwnh It is, and I have a lot of respect for the project. But deep-down, I kind of want to present something that only displays a Medium-like dashboard for users, and a different set of public-facing views.
In a nutshell, you could say it'd be more comparable to Wordpress or Ghost, with a public-facing frontend that can be customized for publishers.
@deadsuperhero Then you're not really looking for a Medium replacement, are you? Medium (and Plume, by extension) is a multi-user platform, where users have profiles of articles. You're looking for a blog CMS, where you manage individual blogs instead of profiles.
@trwnh Yes, it would effectively be a minimalist CMS, but the editing experience would probably be similar to Medium, and there might be publications that serve as ActivityPub Actor objects inside of it.
@deadsuperhero great write-up! i hope i can subscribe to individual ppl or channels & not entire instances from an admin/instance-wide perspective soon.
@Curator well, it is supported as of Beta12
@Curator in my experimenting, I found that you can subscribe to individuals without following entire instances.
@deadsuperhero Great article. Thank you for the shout out.
