Another day, another flatpak. Currently building a "Lens" flatpak.

Putting k8slens.dev/ into a flatpak. Once this is done and working, submitting to FlatHub :)

Currently a bit undecided about the permissions, because it contains a CLI feature, but probably less than more permissions.

Something that really drives me crazy is how everything K8s related boils down to "curl this binary from our website and run it in your full user context" 👀

This should help.

Apple hardware confusion 

I don't understand why Apple sells 3000€ laptops with a USB-C cable that feels cheaper and breaks more often than one from a 300€ phone. I really don't understand, it doesn't make sense.

But even funnier is that a lot of the Apple younglings will buy such a bad quality cable again from Apple instead of buying a proper one for a fraction of the price.

Nice little feature of Bitwarden:

vault.bitwarden.com/#/tools/in

Check what services you are registered to have 2FA options and check the instructions on how to enable them.

I wouldn't recommend to store your 2FA credentials along with te passwords in Bitwarden, but checking once a year, where you can set up new 2FA is definitely recommended!

Oh holy crap I found the culprit!

#Firefox came with this Widevine DRM extension by #Google. That was overriding uBlock Origin. As soon as I disabled the YT ads were gone. TIL.

A few days ago I contributed the "Data By-Pass Pattern" to the docs of the digital twin Framework Eclipse Ditto. With this I share a concept I introduced at my company to send bigger piles of data through a by-pass high-performance proxy while still using the autorization system of the cluster. I've added the PoC Code for this to the Ceryx Proxy project, an API configurable, nginx-based reverse proxy. Still need to bring it upstream though. #opensource

Fancy, @threemaapp is now on Mastodon. It's good to see more and more apps and platforms creating official accounts on the Fediverse. It really helps the society acceptance snowball to go :)

I find myself quite often in discussions about newer packaging mechanisms like flatpak or snap. It appears that a lot of people love to mixup the packaging software with the package provider/distributor. Most claims made against both technologies talk about bad maintained packages, not about the packaging system itself.

There are many good things that went into stacks like Flatpak. The packaging philosophies of some distributions might not fit everyone's taste.

If someone freelancing as Firmware Engineer with experience in Fedora IoT, OSTree and the generation of raw images for flashing devices like Raspberry Pi is interested in a closed job package I just posted an offering at UpWork. Feel free to contact me!

upwork.com/ab/applicants/13573

It's basically about adding (raw-)image build functionality for my open source project rpm-ostree-engine which allows you to maintain your own Version of Fedora IoT with custom modifications

I may have sneaked the letters “CCTG” into the description text, so you can now find the app by searching for the abbreviation.
