Good text I like to link from time to time :) So I thought it might fit here as well.

Actually, they promote it as a “simplistic OIDC provider”, but it is also a really awesome OpenLDAP web-management interface including delegating user & group management, password self-service and user invites.

I plan to run this on a solar powered ARM SBC where the Lemmy pict-rs image uploads will be already somewhat of a challenge, so Peertube is sadly not in the cards due to traffic and storage requirements.

I think Google makes that a requirement for Chomebooks, same with Mesa GPU drivers.

Looks like that by lucky accident (?) it should work out of the box, really cool. Just some minor differences that could be fixed, but the main stuff happens to use the same parameter names :)

I think I like the idea better to just offer chat rooms on here. Most people (should) have already their XMPP or Matrix account which which they can join such federated XMPP rooms. But we could also provide a simple web-client that can be used without an account.

Email is out of the questions, nearly impossible to host these days due to the excessive spam filtering.

Bookstack isn’t really a classic wiki, more something to write and catalogue books with.

Hmm, I tried querying for individual communities but it just gives a blank page. What would be the syntax for that?

Thanks! I think the first link should probably work 🤔

Edit: odd, it only seems to list 10 communities.

JSON API endpoint for communities?
Does Lemmy have some public JSON API to query information about communities? I would like to adapt this to automatically configure XMPP chatrooms for each Lemmy community: https://modules.prosody.im/mod_muc_http_defaults.html Thanks!

We could just run it as a pure muc service without user accounts, meaning that you would need a xmpp account elsewhere but we could have chatrooms on the domain.

Maybe there is even a way to automatically create a chatroom for each community. Need to investigate that. I think there is some prosody plugin that might be adaptable for the lemmy API to do that?

Edit: yeah seems like something that might be doable with this: https://modules.prosody.im/mod_muc_http_defaults.html

I think this piece vastly underestimates the necessary changes in the next few decades, but still… food for thought.

I run a xmpp server anyways so once I take over the domain it will be super easy to add (right now it would be a bit more tricky with delegating the SSL certificate authority and such).

I was mainly talking about user account integration, i.e. that you can register on Lemmy and use the same account to log into Bookstack or a XMPP account.

I think the best would be if someone would add LDAP support to Lemmy, but I am neither versed in Rust nor do I have time for that sadly.

Yes pretty much. That seems to the the intended use-case, but I think it could also be used locally to distribute/replicate storage on multiple servers easily.

Of course the “friend” could be also a VPS rented somewhere as an off-site backup.

Other possible stuff to provide via slrpnk.net?
What other services would people be interested to have available via slrpnk.net? Keeping in mind that it should not be too resource heavy on the server I was thinking of maybe a [Bookstack Wiki](https://www.bookstackapp.com/) for collaborative writing of fiction and non-fiction? A XMPP chat service would also be easy to add. Sadly Lemmy currently AFAIK offers no account integration options, so that will make things a bit annoying.

I think even assuming all the explanations in the article are correct, it misses the point that for a super-human AI, space is a vastly more resource rich and easy to operate in environment, so it will just leave earth and not bother with us insects any longer as space is near infinite and earth is irrelevant for an AI.

Yeah, I was a bit too excited about it and posted prematurely ;)

Yeah and it would actually work with Lemmy, since pict-rs has a S3 interface. They even list Lemmy as a possible but untested app on their documentation.

I think I will try using Garage for this server once we move it.

Actually S3 compatible interface might be interesting to link Pict-rs to Garage

Needs a really new Ruby version that is not on Debian Bullseye. So I will postpone setting this up a bit. Looks otherwise quite easy though, relatively simple Ruby app with sample config and systemd service file.

We enabled community creation. But to keep things a bit clean we will probably prune dead ones from time to time… community gardening ;)

I don’t want to spent more time documenting than actually creating it though :) But yes some nice pictures would be good.

Might be interesting to setup here on slrpnk.net for some common sources like solarpunks.net

I’ll see later today how difficult it is to get running. Luckily google seems to do a good job at translating the docs and the config file itself is in English.

Read-me in Japanese, but it can take sources like RSS or Twitter and repost them on Lemmy and a few other ActivityPub compatible software as well as to webhooks of various chat software.
