Looking for a FOSS way to backup my encrypted Blueray disks so I can stream them with Jellyfin and not worry about the disks getting scratched.

Much like the linked post, I hope this thread serves as a snapshot or "state of the industry" as of April 2024.

"Anything that can be written in Rust will eventually be written in Rust"

Rsync 3.3.0 released (www.mail-archive.com)
submitted 15 hours ago by lemmyreader@lemmy.ml to c/opensource@lemmy.ml

It seems like the FOSS community is continuing to grow, and FOSS apps keep getting better (Immich reallh blew my mind recently), which is a big win ๐Ÿ˜Ž but there are still many apps I use that I would kill for an open source alternative. I am curious what you guys think? Are there any apps you'd love alternatives for?

**The purpose of this post is not to endorse the use of Reddit (), but rather to inform users of a privacy-friendly approach in case they need to utilize the platform.**

Redlib is a private front-end like Invidious but for Reddit.

  • ๐Ÿš€ Fast: written in Rust for blazing-fast speeds and memory safety
  • โ˜๏ธ Light: no JavaScript, no ads, no tracking, no bloat
  • ๐Ÿ•ต Private: all requests are proxied through the server, including media
  • ๐Ÿ”’ Secure: strong Content Security Policy prevents browser requests to Reddit
  • Self-hostable

Redlib currently implements most of Reddit's (signed-out) functionalities but still lacks a few features.

  • IP address
  • User-agent string
  • Browser type
  • Operating system
  • Referral URLs
  • Device information (e.g., device IDs)
  • Device settings
  • Pages visited
  • Links clicked
  • The requested URL
  • Search terms

Location: The same privacy policy goes on to describe that location data may be collected through the use of:

  • GPS (consensual)

Note: The above text presents an abridged and modified version of information found in the developer's documentation. Some context has been removed or altered for brevity. For the full and unmodified documentation, please see the original source.

Additional Information on Frontends from Privacy Guides

Sometimes services will try to force you to sign up for an account by blocking access to content with annoying popups. They might also break without JavaScript enabled. Frontends can allow you to get around these restrictions.

If you choose to self-host these frontends, it is important that you have other people using your instance as well in order for you to blend in. You should be careful with where and how you are hosting, as other peoples' usage will be linked to your hosting.

When you are using an instance run by someone else, make sure to read the privacy policy of that specific instance. They can be modified by their owners and therefore may not reflect the default policy. Some instances have Tor .onion addresses which may grant some privacy as long as your search queries don't contain PII.



Hi there ๐Ÿ‘‹, Iโ€™m Gerard, founder of Latitude.

I have written an article on how I approached building an open-source data tool. I had doubts about Python vs JavaScript, but Iโ€™m happy with the path I chose.

Would love it if you guys give me any feedback!

Does anyone know of a website that recommends music based off a chosen song, that is also open source?

I'm sure I had one bookmarked but I can't seem to find it.

KStars 3.7.0 is Released (knro.blogspot.com)
submitted 2 days ago by JRepin@lemmy.ml to c/opensource@lemmy.ml

So I don't know if this is the proper community to post this in but after the recent shenanigans that Roku has pulled I want to redo my entertainment setup and stream my media through a box I control. I have a couple of Odroid N2+ laying around and I'm trying to build a stream box out of them. First I tried CoreElec but Jellyfin didn't work out to well for me. Now I'm trying Android but some apps (cough* Curiosity Stream) are terrible.

My question is what does the community use to stream their media? What I'm looking for is the ability to connect to Jellyfin servers, Nebula/Curiosity Stream/HiDive subscription service access, adblocked Youtube. Does anyone have a similar setup?

Is there is any tool out there that takes a list of github events (like this https://api.github.com/repos/internetarchive/openlibrary/events) and puts them one one nice page so you can see what's going on in a repo recently?

My main laptop is dead, so I'm on a potato laptop with a 6th gen Intel i3 processor and 4GB of RAM. I have IceCat installed, but I really don't like the defaults it provides.

Maybe I am in the wrong here, but from the Arkenfox page, I've read that having way too many extension is bad - there's an unbelievable amount of these plugins. IceCat being on the older ESR version is a big no when it comes to security. Last but not the least, I want to create a separate, non-secure profile to use normal pages, but IceCat has hard-coded blocks on several websites.

And that is exactly why I'm looking to move to LibreWolf. But the issue is that there is no pre-built binaries available for my distro. I've waited the entire day for this browser, and I'm tired of having to come back to a frozen desktop, or build fails while waking from sleep.

I'm trying the build once again, and I just wanted to know how long it takes to build, so that I can leave it uninterrupted.
