My objection to binary executables that Just Work has diminished in my old age

I haven't used it a lot yet, but so far I'm impressed with as a plug-and-play ultralight github/gitlab workalike... it's written in , so it's just a binary that you run ... even on ARM.

Why is sticking a spurious chunk of path in front of the proper directory when specifying a static image -_-

Somebody, somewhere, will build it. So prepare.

Search & discoverability is coming to the whether anyone likes it or not. is an open platform. These features are coming, one way or another.

If this might be problematic for you or people you care about, it would be good for you to start planning for this now. Because it IS going to happen, in the same way that gene-edited babies happened.

I mean, the was cool for a hot minute back in 2014, but it's been a "same 10 stories below the fold as above the fold, but in different layout" journalistic dead end for a while now.
