List of public instances 23 days ago

From Amolith to ~edwardloveall/scribe

Hello o/

It might be a good idea to have a list of public Scribe instances
somewhere. Projects like Nitter, Invidious, and Bibliogram have wiki
pages or simple markdown files listing known instances so people are
aware of their options.

- https://github.com/zedeus/nitter/wiki/Instances
- https://docs.invidious.io/Invidious-Instances.md
- https://git.sr.ht/~cadence/bibliogram-docs/tree/master/docs/Instances.md

It might actually be cool for Scribe itself to have a page displaying
other instances. This could be similar to the FAQ, but generated at
build-time from a text file. To make it a bit more dynamic so it's

If you mean cross-browser like Chrome/Firefox on different desktops or
Firefox on desktop and Chrome on mobile or something, you might like
xBrowserSync [0]. It's open source, end-to-end encrypted, and
self-hostable. I find the mobile app quite nice too.

Sure, I've just removed the limits on your accounts. The first few
uploads will be blocked by default and require moderator approval before
publishing, so if we're taking too long or just don't notice them, feel
free to nudge us in IRC!

I apologise for the long wait; university has been hectic the last few

We would be more than happy to host your videos! :) There is also the
possibility of streaming to PeerTube as well if you'd be interested in

[PATCH] Add Vale linting manifest 11 months ago

From Amolith to ~whereswaldon/arbor-dev

This is another very simple manifest that spins up an Arch VM, installs
a couple packages, downloads the latest version of Vale [1], then checks
our documentation. At the moment, it's a bit stupid and runs on
everything, for which there are currently …

> ✖ 15 errors, 121 warnings and 182 suggestions in 9 files.

This much output makes it somewhat difficult to figure out what's what
so it would be good if Vale only checked files modified in the commit(s)
being pushed. However, I feel like rudimentary functionality is better
than no functionality at the moment.

[PATCH] Add MkDocs build manifest 11 months ago

From Amolith to ~whereswaldon/arbor-dev

This is a simple manifest that spins up an Arch VM, installs Material
for MkDocs [1], builds the site, then pushes it to a web server. The
port, user, server IP address, and webroot path are specified using
environment variables.

Correct submodule command in the manifest 11 months ago

From Amolith to ~whereswaldon/arbor-dev

In the previous patch, I mixed the git submodule flag/argument up.
Rather than init --update, it should be update --init. This is the
corrected version.
