Is there any decentralized software similar to MusicBrainz or booru-style image boards for collaboratively tagging various media files (music, movies, books, images, etc.) without the need for a centralized database? I'm looking for something where users can contribute metadata and tags in a peer-to-peer fashion.

While I understand that such a decentralized system may result in messy or unreliable metadata due to the lack of curation, I'm willing to accept that trade-off. Sometimes, having any metadata available, even if it's imperfect, is better than having no information at all about a particular file, especially when I don't remember the details myself.

I'd be grateful if anyone could recommend existing software or projects that fit this decentralized, collaborative tagging approach, even if it's a proof-of-concept or works for only a specific media type like music or images. The key requirement is the absence of a central database or authority, with metadata being crowdsourced and distributed across a peer-to-peer network.

Hello! In qalc I can do calculations using measuring units like this:

> 5 W * 3 s

  (5 watts) × (3 seconds) = 15 J

I'd like to be able to do something similar also in GNU Octave. I think the symbolic library could be a place to look at, but I found nothing "already done". Do any of you know of a way to achieve this functionality?

C/Cpp Projects (github.com)
submitted 2 days ago by ibra_kdbra@lemmy.ml to c/opensource@lemmy.ml

A while back, I created a repository for all the C/Cpp projects I've worked on, ones I'm still creating, or projects I've really liked from other people (including their licenses and credits). It's essentially a big collection of C++ projects you can browse or use.

I recommend starting with:

- miniShell

- canChat

- Simple-Code

- design-patterns

- Template_Language_Generator

- simple_turso

- CPP20_Develop

GitHub repository: https://github.com/ibra-kdbra/Cpp_Projects

Every directory has a README markdown file. The main README file is a bit disorganized because I've just been adding projects to it. To be honest, I could use some help with that.

Any contribution is welcome, just trying to spread Cpp projects more among people


Beekeeper Studio is a cross-platform SQL editor and database manager available for Linux, Mac, and Windows. Beekeeper Studio Community Edition is GPL licensed so it is free (libre) and free (gratis).




I am currently learning to be a sysadmin and I have no software development skills. I love FOSS very much and want to contribute to several projects, including non-networked ones.

How can I do this with my skillset? I have a very small (16GB RAM) server that I could offer to these projects as a build server or web host. IDK what else I could do.

Hi all! Do you know a valid app for GutHub? I've searched on F-Droid, but they are all abandoned. Thanks!

I recently created a new Github Account but probably there is some issue with my account. Whenever I am creating a issue on any repo either by web or cli. It shows that issue is created and actually it is shown as created in my recent activity tab if I am loggined. But If I pull up a incognito tab and Enter issues URL there it shows page not found. What is actual issue (do I need any verification?) And how to solve it?

Ventoy is an open source tool to create bootable USB drives for ISO/IMG/VHD(x)/WIM/EFI files. With Ventoy, you don't need to format the disk over and over, you just need to copy the disk images to the USB drive and boot them directly. You can have multiple images on the disk and Ventoy will give you a boot menu to select them.

Avenza seems to be the go-to app. It works pretty well and all, but I'm wanting to know if there's any software available that can allow a team of people to simultaneously access and make edits/notes to a geo-referenced map. It also need to have kind of the same base functionality of being able to show your current location and all that. Ideally it should be designed for mobile first, but being able to access it from desktop too would be a plus.

So, just for one example, I could add a placemarker on the map, and any of my team members who are also accessing that map will be able to see (in real time) the placemarker that I just made. Does this type of feature exist?


Hi all, I really like the open source Linux application called DIA it's a diagram tool that handles flowcharts beautifully.

I'm trying to find an offline Android application that is similar to that, that I can use locally on my Android tablet.

Other software categories that might work include mind mapping, but anything like that really is what I'm after.

There seems to be a severe lack of this, I can't really find anything. I used to use freemind on Linux also, again a great application, but nothing seems to be available for Android.

If anyone has any suggestions, I would love to hear them. Thank you.

FOSS AI painting with Krita

It's so awesome that I can let my kid paint with Krita and let her enhance the picture with AI live. She wanted to have an AI picture editor on her phone but I didn't like the privacy policy. But Krita AI Diffusion came to the rescue.

After testing it out myself I showed her Krita, the most important tools and how to use layers and before I could say anything she was off to paint a nice landscape. When she was finished I actually got to enable the AI plugin and show her the ropes around that. And after enabling live painting she went ham and added a phoenix and a giant hand.

Hardest thing about it was that she had to describe what she wanted in English. But she's already learning that in school so it shouldn't give her too much trouble in the long run.

Anyways, FOSS rules!

Hey there.

Im working on a project for some software I want in the world. But I'm such a hobbyist that I've never thought of publishing any of my projects, but after doing so much work in it I kind of want other to have access to it after I feel its ready.

Whats the process of distribution? I guess I typically use github when interacting with FOSS community, but its still confusing for me to navigate as an end user sometimes, let alone being an uploader.

FWIW its simply a few python modules and other supporting txt and jsons. Targeting mostly Windows because that's what I use.

Thanks! (If this isn't the right place to ask please let me know!)

Edit: there are a bunch of great comments here! To clarify, I want to get it functional and somewhat bug free then fully upload everything so someone can see my idea and do it better. So I think I'm going to go with unlicense, because I don't really care about getting credit or getting contributions necessarily. Thanks all!

Link is a 1h42m video interview between Louis Rossmann, FUTO and Immich developers with a introduction to Immich by Louis.

Immich is an open source self-hosted in-development tool to manage image libraries from a central server, and sync/distribute them across your devices, as an alternative to Google Photos. Also see: https://immich.app

The important news here is that FUTO has funded full time development on Immich for 3 years.
