NEW: Food prices in Europe have been soaring. Earlier this year, the Austrian government said it would build a price database to let people compare costs at different supermarkets. It said this would take months to make and only include a small number of product categories.

Within 2 hours, @badlogic had built a first prototype, pulling the data from supermarket's websites, and open sourced the project. Now Heisse Preise lists 177,000 products from 10 chains.

The transparency has allowed prices to be compared: and the results appear to show supermarkets are watching each other and adjusting their prices based on others. The competition authority is investigating and already said new laws should make supermarkets publish proper APIs with full item data

@fanta Estaba buscando una lista de software #localfirst y #opensource, y a lo mejor tienes alguna. ¿Puede ser?

I want to ask something to #Flathub, @FlatpakApps and the entire #Linux and #FLOSS ecosystem.

Please, stop to translate "proprietary" as "propietario" in Spanish. This was something used by #Microsoft to attack #FreeSoftware in the past.

If you translate "proprietary" as "propietario", you are implying that libre and #OpenSource software doesn't have any owner, and that isn't correct.

The correct translation of "proprietary" is "privativo."

Cult of the Dead Cow has released #Veilid: A secure peer-to-peer #network for apps that flips off the #surveillance economy

The idea being here that apps – #mobile, #desktop, #web, and headless – can find and talk to each other across the #internet privately and securely without having to go through centralized and often corporate-owned systems. Veilid provides code for app developers to drop into their #software so that their clients can join and communicate in a peer-to-peer #community.

On this day, 40 years ago, the GNU Project started to pave the way to Free Software, a way that many projects over the years have decided to travel, following the idea of a computer world with the User served and not exploited.

Lichess is mainly licensed under GNU AGPL, being proudly free as in free speech, in addiction of being free as in free beer.

Happy birthday GNU! 🥳

Holy shit #kdenlive has gotten good!

I got to use it today on a work project, making a video for all the vertical video platforms. The multiple sequences is an absolute game changer.

That plus all the other tools like color clips, gradients, transforms & crops, keyframing, corner tool and so on meant I didn't need to turn to Resolve, let alone (horror) Adobe for a relatively complex project.

This is getting closer and closer to replacing proprietary for everything I need.

Thanks! I'll definitely check out AntennaPod! I think now is a great moment to switch to something #opensource!

I hope Google will add a way to export to OMPL!

Here is today's reminder that #Discord is NOT a forum! I'm looking at you. (Nice to see you here though!)

Discord is directly hostile to #opensource users.

It is not #accessible
It is not archived.
It does not allow anonymous viewing.
It is not searchable, and neither is it indexed by external search engines.
Data is walled in and unexportable.

Bonus round: Chat is also NOT a forum!

Chat is a chronological firehose, good for temporally transient information, largely ungrouped. Forums are a topical tree, good for longer-lasting information grouped by subject.

If you would write it down in real life (including email) then use a forum.

If you would only say it out loud (in the hallway or on a call) then chat is perfectly fine.

And if you say it out loud while someone else writes it down, tell your assistant to use a forum.

Firefox 118 comes with built-in website translation, no addon/plugin/extension or 3rd party service needed.
This uses Mozilla's own in house translating engine, the translation happens locally, client side, never leaving your computer, so you can be sure your data stays private.

Spent a good while thinking about this. I’m going to be even more tough on contributions to my #opensource projects.

Over twenty years ago when I first started out, I was happy when I got contributions and interacted with people using my code. Looking back however, it’s clear that the vast majority were code dumps other people wanted me to maintain for free for them. I’ve even been scolded publicly on the rare occasions when I denied or removed code and broke their use case.
