Invidious

*

This is a lightweight web wrapper around YT. It also is libre software, so there are multiple hosted instances of it, and you could host it yourself if you wanted. It has a bunch of nice features, such as no ads, audio-only mode, doesn’t require JS, and no tracking.

  • Is there a danger in making decentralised, individual self-hosted easy? If it isn't combined with making maintenance and updates easy.
  • Great thread on the licensing and business model of Cloudron - https://forum.cloudron.io/topic/2862/why-not-make-cloudron-fully-open-source-again/1?lang=en-US. A casy study of a bigger issue.
  • Truth: setting up Yunohost and using it to install Invidious, is easier than just installing Invidious by itself.
  • I feel proud to say I am using YunoHost. I wouldn't have the same pride in announcing I am using Cloudron, as useful as it is.
  • Baikal - I can't immediately see a way to import calendars. So given that and that it doesn't seem to work with LDAP, I'll going to uninstall it and try NextCloud.
  • YunoHost - interesting the default preference for subfolders rather than subdomains. I kind of prefer subdomains, but I feel like that's maybe just familiarity. Obviously some nice reverse proxy magic being set up by YunoHost too, would be interesting to look at that.
  • The way the YunoHost SSO straight in to NextCloud works is pretty sweet.
  • The fact YunoHost has the Anarchist Library as an app tells you something about its ethics :) (I think it's partly building on top of Debian, which also bundles that library IIRC).
  • On libraries:

  • Self-hosting conundrum.
  • I like this little talk from EmacsConf 2020 about using org-mode to prioritise tasks based on a vision for life. Dead simple, just add a tag to each of the headlines that flags what the long-term impact of doing a particular thing will be.
    • It looks like you could run the risk of never doing daily chores though, if they all factor in as 0 towards a long-term goal. Maybe it needs to be a mix of urgency and importance that you tag things with.
  • Firefox blocks autoplay on video sites by default. You might watch to allow your Invidious instance to autoplay if you're listening to a playlist. https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/block-autoplay

  • Been looking at orger. Looks pretty great - a way to PESOS a ton of personal data into org-mode.
  • I think I'll try and pull in all my old tweets to my digital garden with it.
  • I was thinking I'd like to get my toots on social.coop pulled in to my garden too. But ideally, POSSEing would be better than PESOS there. So again maybe it comes down to sorting out my stream and webmentions etc in the garden.
  • That said - maybe there's an argument for PESOS over POSSE when it comes to a digital garden? Use the interface of the apps that were specifically designed for the platform rather than try to reverse engineer and rebuild. Just make sure you've got the data.
  • Trying to upgrade Invidious on YunoHost. It is giving the error. I am trying to fix it. YunoHost Invidious upgrade gives "Not enough free space"
  • Set my self-hosted Searx instance as my default search engine in Firefox.

  • Video embeds

If it is just a plain link where 'youtube' is cleary visible, it is OK I think - at least the visitor can tell that it is going to take them to Youtube and choose whether to click or not. Still, I'd use Invidious if the video is working there.

  • YunoHost

  • It's a bit like an OS specifically designed for installing web apps. I use it and really like it.
  • Self-hosting made a bit easier.
  • My notes on Setting up YunoHost.
  • Truth: setting up Yunohost and using it to install Invidious, is easier than just installing Invidious by itself.
  • Interesting the default preference for subfolders rather than subdomains. I kind of prefer subdomains, but I feel like that's maybe just familiarity. Obviously some nice reverse proxy magic being set up by YunoHost too, would be interesting to look at that.
  • The way the YunoHost SSO straight in to NextCloud works is pretty sweet.
  • Reading more about Yunohost's aims - https://yunohost.org/#/faq and https://yunohost.org/#/project_organization - I feel like I can't not support them.
  • The fact YunoHost has the Anarchist Library as an app tells you something about its ethics :) (I think it's partly because it's building on top of Debian, which also bundles that library IIRC).
  • YunoHost Invidious upgrade gives "Not enough free space"

Trying to upgrade Invidious on YunoHost. It is giving the error: '168261 Not enough free space on '/home/yunohost.backup/archives'.
