Let's have a thread to share some cool things with each other that help replace garbage programs. As an example, Skype. Skype is garbage, but I've had a really hard time finding something better that's also easy enough to convince friends and family to use. This looks pretty promising: appear.in
What do you guys think? Are there any other neat places you have all found to replace shitty programs?

 No.1595

It looks like appear.in is using WebRTC to make the connections in browser. Be forewarned.

Krita is by far my favorite painting software. Works everywhere. No matter what computer I am on it's the same experience. A+

Discord is pretty good alternative right now, in terms of usability and friendliness. However it's not open source, so if you're one of those guys you might not like it. They're also getting video calls soon i think (if they don't already have it), so it's utility as a skype replacement is getting pretty good.

I never tried it since I don't like video calls but in the same ballpark as Skype there's also Ring, might be worth considering.

For IM I've been wanting to use XMPP+OTR but I don't know anyone using it and it seems too autistic to market it to my friends. Also tried Matrix which seems promising in itself but I hate Riot's UI and it probably won't get any better.

The Facebook messaging app used to be XMPP (probably still is, but not open to all other domains anymore). It was the most amount of normies ever using it. XMPP is fantastic though.

It's not XMPP anymore, at least open XMPP, they changed that in like 2012-2013. Unsure what it is now but it's a proprietary API.

PROMISEDCHAN
(name liable to future change)

There is a new imageboard-software concept in the works. Addressing the problem of powerful moderating positions being compromised and shitting up the board against the will of board communities and their established board culture.
(See: 4chan 8/b/, 8/pol/, 8/wx/ etc.)
>Nothing that isn't spam or illegal is deleted, ever. You can subscribe to different moderation teams (and bots) to have the shit filtered to your liking. There would be a default moderation team for each board but the default would change if the majority changed the moderators they subscribed to.
>To keep normies from freaking the fuck out a default profile of moderation subscriptions will be applied by default, the default moderation will be decided by an impartial algorithm that takes in to account the modoration most users in a board choose, weighting the chooses by activity.

Unfortunately there is a shortage of skilled /tech/anons who are willing to assist in the planning and development of this new imageboard concept, which is holding back development.

If you're interested in assisting in the development of this new imageboard concept, please go to

Ever heard of nntpchan (from the overchan project)? It works on top of i2p or tor but has that feature builtin: each node duplicates the content from ALL other nodes, but also applies their own moderation on top, so most nodes remove CP but some are completely unfiltered. If nothing else this should serve as a good base for whatever you're building.
You might also want to look into distributed systems, like ipfs, eth, neo, maidsafe, etc. and build a user-weight moderation system on top of that.

Hey anons, there's a way to startx automatically on login? I've read that you have to modify /etc/inittab, but I don't have it. I also couldn't find ~/.bash_profile nor /etc/systemd/system/getty@tty1.service.d/override.conf.

Thanks you anon, but unfortunately that didn't work.
I also read about installing gdm and then do
#update-rc gdm defaults
but I'm not sure about it, nor about:
"I think you should install and use nodm, “an automatic display manager which automatically starts an X session at system boot”. It is extremely lightweight and works like a charm.

Create the file /etc/sv/nodm/conf and add the configuration like this:
NODM_USER='{username}' NODM_XSESSION='/home/{username}/.xinitrc

Additionally, your .xinitrc has to be executable in order to work with nodm (chmod 555)."

you could try lightdm. this was helpful for me when i was getting it set up. systemctl enable lightdm is the command to enable the daemon, and subsequently an x session, all that you need to figure out is adding it to startup via systemctl

Let's post some addons that you couldn't live without and what they do.

Browser: Firefox v58
Ublock Origin: Block ads
Lastpass: Password manager
Stylus: Change styles for sites. Favorite theme is gruvbox dark.
Vimium-FF: vim keybindings

Tree Style Tab: Display tabs in a tree rather than horizontally. Very useful for large amount of tabs. In the screenshot I have about 30 tabs open.
Tab Session Manager: Saves open tabs in intervals so you can go back to what you were working on days later.

Dark mode is nice but it doesn't work on some sites like twitch.

You may like the extension flashgot. It's specifically a download manager, but you can config it to open videos in vlc or mpv if you have youtube-dl installed. So you'd be able to right click a video and send it to your out of browser video player.

Why play videos out of browser? You get better playback and you have the option to user shaders like sharpen or denoise.

Firefox quantum isn't compatible with flashgot because it's in the old extension format so I had to settle for 'Open in VLC'

I just use the twitch site to watch vods. I use streamlink-twitch-gui and chatty twitch client normally.

I find that streamlink twitch gui has better video search than gnome-twitch and use chatty to chat in the channel. I think the user experience is better to have chat in a separate program.

Chatty can be used on it's own to watch twitch streams but there is no search or ability to watch vods.

So, /t/, I got a Raspberry Pi for Christmas. I've been playing with it and quite enjoy it, and I was wondering, what do you all think I should do with it? Should I use it for emulation, as a file server, perhaps as a seedbox? Also, can anyone recommend a decent web browser that runs on the pi because it comes with >Chromium and Firefucks runs like ass. Everything else I've checked either doesn't run on ARM or else doesn't support watching muh YouTube.

 No.1563

Are you running android on it? If so I recommend Firefox Klar as a browser.

You can use it to make an occupied indicator for the bathroom. That way you don't have to get up and see if someone is in the bathroom, you can just glance and see if the light is on.

Those are some decent ideas. I may look into that. I do like having it as an emulation station though. I threw complete libraries for the NES, Genesis, and SNES on there. I also already have a VPN.

Oh neat, I threw a retropie together about two weeks ago. I've mostly been using it as a retro games console, but I'm actually considering getting another with an LCD screen and using it as a type of onboard computer in the equipment I'm putting together for a little 'project' I'm working on.

Does anyone know if you can reliably run wireshark off the pi? I imagine it doesn't have the RAM or processing speed to handle it but I'm not totally sure. It can definitely run metasploit though as there are kali distributions made specifically for devices like it.

I've tried IPFS and it seems cool, but it's really not super usable until there are easty to remember names for sites or a good search engine. The hashes are a pain to remember and it's hard to find things. Can someone give me the quick rundown on zeronet?

 No.1545

Zeronet is a literal honeypot. There's enough documentation thereof online so I won't bother looking it up again just for (You). IPFS doesn't do dynamic content yet, and the go daemon is buggy as shit. When it doesn't bug out, though, it works really fucking well, and for static content it's already far superior to zeronet even if you ignore zeronet's honeypot shit.

For the time being I think projects like substratum are more interesting. Substratum lets nodes in the networks act as full hosts, so you still have the classical client-server architecture but with a random host from the pool. Much easier to setup for developers, and figuring shit like sideeffects is a no-brainer. It's not quite as nice as fully distributed/decentralized sites but it's effectively close enough.

 No.1546

>>1540
You can use IPNS and any DNS system to enable easy names like e.g. localhost:whatever/ipns/mycoolsite.xxx for example. There are more complete instructions if you look around. This has been a feature since almost the beginning. The point of non-ipns records is to be able to keep a content-addressed exact versionned copy of a chunk, e.g. if a site becomes compromised or if you just prefer the older version.

 No.1547

I don't know enough about any of these, but I'm completely on board for a large scale network that operates under different rules than the current one.
