FlorisBoard | FOSS keyboard that respects your privacy ( florisboard.org )

I came across everyday topic on Techlore Discussions about free and open source keyboards for Android and discovered this little gem. It is FlorisBoard, a virtual keyboard for Android which respects privacy of the user. I can sigh with relief and finish my search for that singular keyboard for typing stuff on the go....

Oh… It sucks.

Exactly because the thing is FOSS, that becomes possible for more people with enough qualifications to resume it. In proprietary case, only very limited circle gets to touch the source code. We’re probably witnessing a curse with virtual keyboards in FOSS, like some niche kinds of software…

Create threads from Lemmy | Kbin

Just made a little test: turns out you can post a thread from UI to magazine! So if you have a Lemmy account, you don't miss out on Threads creation, while having no Kbin account at all. One exception is if you want to post something more sophisticated than just a link or an article: if you're gonna add tags and other things that Kbin does over basics. 🤷

But you cannot post into Microblog from Lemmy, so keep that in mind.

From the perspective of Lemmy, community page is showing both Threads and Microblog posts in one place. It truncates microblog text to 200 characters to put in the title, putting entirety of the text behind a click.
