Still 11k active installations of the really outdated free version on Google Play.
I read some misleading messages. Google removed the free version due to donation links. Remove means you can't even find it in your library though you downloaded it. That has nothing to do with a personal choice ;)
To this 11k users, please, go on #Fdroid to get last updates for free.

I am searching beta testers who :
- Use Google Play
- Have an account on Mastodon & Pixelfed
- That don't care about clunky UI
- That don't throw their device when an app crash
- And that love to send bug reports

If you are one of them, ping me so I can give you a code for getting Fedilab :)

Boosts appreciated (thanks)

If you use an animated banner, could you ping me so I can check your profile with the app? Thank you.

I will need the help of Android developers.
I recently used a lib that includes Glide 4.8.0 (same version that Fedilab uses)

I got this error:
D8: Program type already present: com.bumptech.glide.GeneratedRequestManagerFactory
I tried to exclude the dependency from this lib without any success.


If you had already encountered this issue, I would appreciate your help :)

To everyone praising Tusky for including hardcoded obstacles to users trying to access Gab instances, I don't think you understand what Libre software is.

I will stop here with #Gab by removing the block feature inside the app in the next release.

My motivations:

- I didn't receive a reply from Google policy team about a potential ban of the application.
- Without the previous risk, I clearly think that's not my role. I can't hard-code instance blocks especially when every tools are here for that.
- If you want a strong block, it's in the hands of social network developers or your admins.

Pixelfed will be a year old in a few days.

I'm a high school dropout that has never taken any CS or computer classes.

Web development is just a hobby of mine, I work in the auto industry.

I'm so proud of this project, I never would have imagined that I could make something like this.

Thank you for helping me realize credentialism isn't so important as you think. 鉂わ笍 :pixelfed:

If I could magically make everyone aware of just one thing, it would be this:

Government, laws, and policies are tools for reaching particular ends. They are not expressions of your identity, your morals, or the morals of your country. If a policy won't accomplish what you want, it doesn't matter how good its intentions are, it's still a bad policy.

I guess the player for Android got renamed to ?

Dear #fediverse. I work as an #architect and design buildings that harm the planet. I am looking for a practicing #engineer who can teach me building energy modelling using #opensource tools. I have a background in software dev, run #gentoo #linux and am willing to learn down to the details.

I do not have a background in heat transfer or thermodynamics, which is why I am asking for a tutor.

I promise to use this to design better buildings.

Please help retoot this so I can find someone.


Liberdon is a Mastodon instance for libertarians, ancaps, anarchists, voluntaryists, agorists, etc to sound off without fear of reprisal from jack or zuck. It was created in the wake of the Great Twitter Cullings of 2018, when a number of prominent libertarian accounts were suspended or banned.
