  • Ask HN: What's Happenning with SourceHut?
    For anyone coming across this, a new page has been set up at - Source: Hacker News / 6 months ago
  • Using Git Offline
    Do you know SourceHut? I would be really curious to have your opinion about it as compared to how it was 14 years ago. I feel like SourceHut does a really good job helping on the tooling side (it's super easy to setup a mailing list). Also I find Aerc very cool for that. The author describes it here: - Source: Hacker News / 6 months ago
  • Email and Git = <3
    A few comments in-line, but I don't want to "sell" anything to you, so just FWIW. > The amount of "gotchas" in this process and the tooling required just to use git + email seems insane to me. The base system is really, really simple, but there are some common rules/guidelines that just help when working together, and those are required for forge based workflows too (or do you like a single commit touching a dozen... - Source: Hacker News / 9 months ago
  • Show HN: FlakeHub – Discover and publish Nix flakes
    > We're planning on expanding to support other forges, Just want to put in a request for SourceHut support in case it's not already on your list. Sometimes it gets overlooked in favor of the big corporate forges. - Source: Hacker News / 11 months ago
  • Vim Boss – Neovim
    Https:// fits this pretty well. - Source: Hacker News / 11 months ago
  • Let's Make Sure GitHub Doesn't Become the Only Option
    Not shilling here, but big upvote for Sourcehut - When you pay money to Drew DeVault and his crew, their work is all open source. And, that includes work outside of Sourcehut. They are also hired guns for existing open source projects. - Source: Hacker News / about 1 year ago
  • Let's Make Sure GitHub Doesn't Become the Only Option
    There's a number of places out there, some of which also support alternatives to Git itself. By no means a complete list and in no particular order: GitLab - Sourcehut - Codeberg - Launchpad - Debian Salsa - Pagure - For self hsoted options, there's these below... - Source: Hacker News / about 1 year ago
  • Is there any way I can make a career out of developing free software?
    Drew Devault is an example of someone that has done this. He has developed many useful pieces of software. He eventually developed sourcehut, which is a code hosting (and many other things now) platform that is developed as free software. And it seems to make enough money to support him and a few others.

  • Codeberg – Fast Open Source Alternative to GitHub
    SourceHut[1] has CI out of the box[2]. [1] [2] - Source: Hacker News / over 1 year ago
  • AUTOMATIC1111's GitHub Account Appears to Have Been Removed
    That's called source hut (, which I use with great delight. - Source: Hacker News / over 1 year ago
  • Ask HN: Why did Front end development explode in complexity?
    My theory and personal opinion. In the past, we didn't have complex UIs, we did, but we dealt with them differently. For example, in the era of forms and limited Ajax, keeping the DOM synced with the state took a lot of work. The complexity we see today results from different ideas of how to deal with that _synchronicity_. Keep in mind that there's no way to do it natively; the only way to do it is to manually... - Source: Hacker News / over 1 year ago
  • Four Years of Sourcehut
    Sourcehut the website is indeed very nice and pleasant to even just browse, but as a very occasional browser of it I have struggled perhaps three times over the last several months, for several minutes each, to find the list of services you posted above—even though I knew it was there. At least the last two times I’ve finally remembered the existence of, which does have a (different) list of... - Source: Hacker News / over 1 year ago
  • Four Years of Sourcehut
    SourceHut just feels refreshingly snappy! Even their homepage has a few links that you can click around, to explore some of the features for yourself: Hosted git repositories: Powerful continuous integration: Mailing lists & code review tools: Focused ticket... - Source: Hacker News / over 1 year ago

    Use then. It is against such gamification elements and Drew has been quite vocal abut this issue. - Source: Hacker News / over 1 year ago
  • Ask HN: Curated list of JavaScript-free/lite sites?
    Sourcehut is a good example - Source: Hacker News / almost 2 years ago
  • Use Plain-Text Email
    Right above that line, the site notes that the code is available here [1]. It looks like the majority of it was written by Drew DeVault, who runs SourceHut [2], where the code is hosted. [1]: [2]: - Source: Hacker News / almost 2 years ago
  • In Praise of QEMU
    I've ever never heard of or never bothered to pay attention to SourceHut. How did GitHub ever get so big when this exists? Is it because GH predates SourceHut? I'm not clear on when SH came into existence, but they have entries on their blog from 2019. > * Absolutely no tracking or advertising > * All features work without JavaScript > * Many features work without an account > * The fastest... - Source: Hacker News / almost 2 years ago
  • Unix legend Brian Kernighan, who is the "k" in "awk" and is 80 years old, keeps fixing things. He has added Unicode support to awk, but he couldn't figure out how use git, so he just emailed his changes to the current maintainer

  • Ask HN: Switching from GitHub to Gitlab for Ethical Reasons?
    I moved from Github to Gitlab years ago due to ethical issues (open source vs closed). I think that, at the very least, it's beneficial to prop up competitors to Github to prevent them from achieving a monopoly. Too many people currently see Github and git as interchangeable and that is potentially disastrous considering Microsoft owns Github. I'm currently using privately and... - Source: Hacker News / almost 2 years ago
  • The Gullible Software Altruist
    While I like (and recently started using) Sourcehut [1], I also hear and read good things about codeberg [2] these days. Haven't used it yet though. [1] [2] - Source: Hacker News / almost 2 years ago
