FreshRSS 1.11.1

FreshRSS 1.11.1 has just been released!

It is a quick release to fix a regression introduced in 1.11.0, as well as various other bugs. But in addition, this version does come with a few noteworthy goodies :-)

Notable changes:
* Better support of media: tags such as thumbnails and descriptions (e.g. for YouTube)
* Built-in extension to fix Tumblr feeds from European Union due to #gdpr
* Fix regression in fetching full articles content
* Fix several bugs in the new Fever API
* Etc. See the release notes for details:

As usual, it is already available for git and Docker update methods, and will soon be available by auto-zip-update when @marien has pushed the changes to the update server :-)

Thanks again to all the #freshrss contributors 👍🏻 (6 in this mini release)

Soleil au nord

À Copenhague (55°N), le soleil en été se lève au nord-est et se couche au nord-ouest, ce qui fait que les fenêtres donnant au nord peuvent être ensoleillées le matin et le soir 🌞
et ca s'accentue
bonjour voisin
moi je suis en Norvège

Episode 17 of Pepper & Carrot in Danish

It's been a while since the last episode, but my daughter has just made the French to Danish translation of the Episode 17 of #peppercarrot :-)

She was a bit slowed down by the transition from GitHub to Framagit, but should be back on track now.

@alkarex Many thanks again to you and your daughter @alkarex !


FreshRSS dans Next INpact

Petit article sympa sur notre FreshRSS dans Next INpact aujourd'hui
#freshrss @marien @Marien Fressinaud

Intelligence, social... FreshRSS veut redonner un coup de fouet aux agrégateurs de flux

Près de cinq ans après la mort de Google Reader, l'équipe derrière FreshRSS veut faire évoluer les protocoles et l'utilisation des flux d'actualité. Détection des doublons, regroupement par thèmes, nouvelle présentation : les idées ne manquent pas, pour un outil qui mise aujourd'hui plus sur ses valeurs que sur l'innovation.

Grats ;-)


FreshRSS 1.10.1

Notable changes:
* Fix regressions in 1.10.0 and other bugs, such as affecting the API in EasyRSS
* New Docker image, much smaller (based on Alpine Linux) and newer (with PHP 7.1) with automated build for x86-64
* Etc. See the release notes for details:

Thanks again to all the #freshrss contributors 👍🏻 (5 in this minor release)


FreshRSS - A free, self-hostable aggregator…
J'ai release le package yunohost dans la foulée.

@alkarex Je dois mal m'y prendre, parce que FreshRSS ne me propose pas de mise à jour, alors que je suis en 1.9.0

Faut peut-être que je le fasse à la main.

@igor Le système de mise à jour intégré cause pas mal de soucis et doit être amélioré (déjà prévu). En attendant, git, YunoHost, Docker, ou zip (manuel), sont de bonnes options pour les mises à jour :-)

@alkarex Ok, merci pour la réponse. :)


FreshRSS 1.10.0

FreshRSS 1.10.0 has just been released!

Notable changes:
* Compatibility with FeedMe 3.5.3+ on Android (see the beta version if not already out)
* Ability for the admin to reset a user’s password
* Ability to pause feeds, and to hide them from categories
* New icons for marking as favourite and marking as read in the Reading View
* Compatibility PHP 7.2
* Etc. See the release notes for details:

It will soon be available by auto-update when @marien has pushed the changes to the update server :-)

Thanks again to all the #freshrss contributors 👍🏻 (13 in this release)
In FeedMe, remember to set “Settings / Synchronisation Mode / All”.
FeedMe currently has a synchronisation strategy that is much slower than e.g. News+, especially for large amounts of unread articles, but I will make some suggestions of improvement to the developer in the coming days.

@alkarex Thanks a lot for this release!
I had problems previously with the API despite it had already worked a long time ago with easyRSS (don't know if it's a Nginx problem or freshRSS, but everything seemed to be OK in conf...)
I will retry to configure it then :)

@alkarex Update server is up-to-date 👍 Thanks again for the hard work!

Thanks again to all the #freshrss contributors 👍🏻

@alkarex It's already done! :)


Pepper & Carrot en papier

@davidrevoy En attendant peut-être un jour une édition papier de notre traduction danoise de #peppercarrot , nous avons déjà acheté les deux premiers tomes en français :-)
@alkarex Merci! 👍


Firefox Quantum

Very impressed by the speed of #Firefox 57 (Quantum), especially in the UI :-)
I was quite annoyed of seeing most of my extensions not supported, but I found replacements for a good share of them. Here are some remaining ones (suggestions welcome for alternatives):
* ChatZilla (not yet possible with WebExtension)
* DownThemAll (a Lite version is coming soon for WebExtension)
* SSLeuth (not yet possible with WebExtension)
* Link Widgets


tt-rss to FreshRSS

I am always happy to see users leaving tt-rss for #freshrss for ideological reasons (e.g. fleeing insults), but I hope they will stay both for ideological reasons as well as technical ones :-)


first thanks for creating FreshRSS - I have been using tt-rss for a long time and am looking for alternatives now - FreshRSS seems the right solution for me...
Related discussion (in French)

Je n'avais pas conscience des problème d’insulte sur tt-rrs. Je suis surtout venu à FreshRSS pour la vitesse, les qualités techniques donc :)


Video-surveillance at home

Following some burglary in our neighbourhood, I am installing some video-surveillance. I would rather not have my videos uploaded to a (foreign) cloud service, pay a monthly license fee, or lose the service when (not if) the cloud service stops. #domotics

I have settled for a (discount) D-Link DCS-2210L, and I am glad for my choice so far. It is a discontinued model, but that does not matter much for me: it is not directly exposed to the Internet, and can still be bought. #iot
Yes, I know :-P

It has a wide-angle Full-HD camera (covers one large room without problem), MPEG4, night vision, PIR (infrared) motion sensor, 2-way audio, Ethernet (I do not like Wi-Fi for stationary installations), and IPv6. #ipv6

It can be used standalone, with many options to view videos live, upload videos by e.g. FTP, send video-clips by e-mail when motion has been detected, mask areas of the video, etc.

There is also the option to use the D-Link cloud system "mydlink" and their mobile app. That is not for me, but good for someone who wants to be self-hosted, but who is not ready yet.

I use it coupled with my Synology Surveillance Station, which stores videos continuously locally in low quality, and in high quality when events are detected, as well as sending notification alerts with photos, also accessible from a mobile app. There are good options to sync/upload with a distant server, in case the NAS is stolen :-P


Next step is a second camera for outside.
To be continued...


Episode 12-16 of Pepper & Carrot in Danish

My daughter (9 years old) has continued her translation work and episodes 12-16 of #peppercarrot are now available in Danish :-)

Friendica to Mastodon

My Friendica instance is finally working with Mastodon in both directions :-)
One must disable HTTP/2 due to a bug in Mastodon / Ruby


Flat UI designs are slow

A study, which makes me happy (I do not like flat design) :-)

Flat UI Elements Attract Less Attention and Cause Uncertainty
A "flat" design removes the distinction between navigation controls and content. Historically, navigation controls such as buttons were shaded, or given 3D relief, to distinguish them from the application or web page's content.
Flat interfaces often use weak signifiers. In an eyetracking experiment comparing different kinds of clickability clues, UIs with weak signifiers required more user effort than strong ones.

It's official: Users navigate flat UI designs 22 per cent slower

Put in some chrome and shade


Pepper & Carrot (MOTION COMIC) Episode 6: The Potion Contest

(With Danish subtitles courtesy of our little family :-) )

Félicitation à l’équipe Morevna pour avoir achevé leur dérivation en “BD Animé” (Motion Comic) de l’épisode 6 de Pepper&Carrot “Le Concours de Potion”. En tant qu’auteur, ça fait sacrément drôle d’entendre parler et gesticulé mes personnages. J’adore la voie de anglaise de Saffron et Shichimi! Le projet a été fait entièrement avec des outils libres et est distribué en CC-By-Sa.

Bonne séance!

Amusing maths test

Amusing maths test, and not with fake numbers like on Facebook (X% will fail blabla) :-)

Can you solve it? Are you in the smartest 10 per cent?

As UK students sit their A-levels, here’s a ‘simple’ puzzle that once stumped nine out of ten 18-year-olds around the world
Ha, solved it, fun indeed, and I understand how so many people can be stumped.


Pepper & Carrot Animated - Danish

Just got a pull request merged for Danish subtitles of the #peppercarrot animation project @David Revoy
