I was wondering should I create an account on github(I know it's own by micro$oft)? Just to play around a littile a find out how things work?
Or you have some better options? Comment.
@redstarfish Gitlab, or a self hosted gitea?
The problem of self-hosted stuff is you can't search all repos with the same tool, i would really love an activitypub like implementation for git, so we could own our private/public repos and share them with people over a federated domain, and make them interactive (PR, MR, Merges, Comments on commits, etc)
+1 if you share this idea! I might even start doing this myself.
I have some vague memory of that gitea is looking into ActivityPub
@selea @nitox There are already a zillion of projects in that area. Please spend time reviewing them https://github.com/dspinellis/git-issue/blob/master/README.md#related-work (for instance Gitlab has an issue in its tracker about federation https://gitlab.com/gitlab-org/gitlab-foss/issues/4013.)
It soynds really cool. I defently be down
you asked 2 questions 😎
@redstarfish The good thing with git: you can have your code on more than one repository.
So learn and go public with github, use privately e.g. gitlab and maybe another open repository of your least mistrust ...
(I have my open stuff on github and our closed family gitlab server)
@redstarfish Yes. Do it on GitHub and on a GitLab instance (e.g. gitlab.com).
@redstarfish I've started using notabug.org after they banned some devs from US embargoed countries. There are other alternatives as well.
@redstarfish if you're just playing around, try Codeberg. Create code without worrying about how some corporation will try to monetize you and your content.
Codeberg, but I am biased. Seems to fit looking at your profile though ;)
Awesome, I've actually thought about closing my own gitea server and move to codeberg instead
@redstarfish is there an opensource/federated alternative to github?
Can't say about federated, but a free software("Open Source") alternative is codeberg.org which I'm currently using.
If you read the replies of my post, there are other such alternatives sugested by others.
