Moving off GitHub: I'm mov­ing Celestial's pri­mary de­vel­op­ment away from GitHub, which will only get the oc­ca­sional pushes from now on. Issues were al­ready im­ported into the new host a while ago, but the pro­ject kan­ban boards will need to set up man­u­ally. I don't think Gitea sup­ported pro­ject boards at the time of im­port.

Once the pro­ject boards are also mir­rored man­u­ally, I in­tend to close them as well as all is­sues from GitHub it­self in fa­vor of the new repos­i­tory holder: Codeberg.

I ex­pect con­ver­sa­tion will be se­verely lim­ited due to the net­work ef­fect that GitHub has. I don't think Codeberg solves this deeper is­sue, but in the medium term, the move is war­ranted in my opin­ion and should be worth it.

Donations: I'm also ac­cept­ing do­na­tions on Librepay now — both to help de­vel­op­ment of Celestial into a more ma­ture prod­uct, and for run­ning SmallCamp, my Hometown/Mastodon com­mu­nity. For now, only PayPal is set up and is likely to be that way as I don't have many op­tions. If you're in India and would like to make a one-time do­na­tion through an al­ter­na­tive pay­ment proces­sor, please drop me an email.

Development up­date: I'm in the process of break­ing my IndieAuth im­ple­men­ta­tion into an in­de­pen­dent mod­ule that can be used by any­one in the com­mu­nity. You've prob­a­bly seen me toot­ing about this re­cently, al­beit with­out any nam­ing.

Any modules” will stay on TypeScript, whereas the core Celestial app will be mi­grated to vanilla JavaScript.

While there are more plans and ideas, I'm tak­ing it slow and don't wish to re­veal too much. It causes me to lose mo­ti­va­tion be­cause of an in­vis­i­ble pres­sure out of a writ­ten promise to the com­mu­nity.

Thinking of mov­ing to Gitea too. Did you fol­low some spe­cific howto or did you just rtfm? Very in­ter­ested in a guide here 😆

…and I re­moved it. Seems quite point­less putting up my per­sonal goal there. 🤷‍♀️
