I've left Unity some time ago, but surely there should be a dock similar to the one I have
sidneys.github.io
@sidneys
I'm also using gnome, unity was to buggy
or am I? I think I did a rollback a while ago
nope I'm on unity. fuck
but there's also arc theme available

hey everyone, i'm sorry for my inactivity, i'd like to clarify the situation and answer all the questions
whatsie/wfd is dead because of WhatsApp's cease & desist
the builds on github are all clean except the nsis
i still own the github repo, pipeline, updates server
Émile Fugulin
@Sytten
Hey :)
Alexandru Rosianu
@aluxian
if you want to create an alternative domain that's fine with me (although i saw the .org is up already)
i saw some comments about rebuilding the pipeline — don't, it's a lot of work and pain
Émile Fugulin
@Sytten
I agree!
Alexandru Rosianu
@aluxian
as i said, the builds on github are and have always been clean (with that nsis exception, which i can remove from GitHub)
Émile Fugulin
@Sytten
the builds output from circle ci and cie, where are they going after?
Alexandru Rosianu
@aluxian
the pipeline is broken right now though, pushing only triggers CircleCI and not appveyor/travis. i have no idea why, i looked on it last week, will fix it this weekend
after this, pushing to develop/staging/deploy should work again
the pipeline goes like this:
push to github develop/staging/deploy -> triggers all CIs -> they build the app and upload it to bintray/github
from there the updates server (https://github.com/Aluxian/squirrel-updates-server) picks it up (actually it just requests the releases from GitHub api every time with a cache period of 2h)
the updates server has /update and /download endpoints used for updates and (clean) downloads
however, there's another endpoint, /download/mirror/ which instead of returning the download link from github, returns a download link from the ad network
Émile Fugulin
@Sytten
so you host the two right?
Alexandru Rosianu
@aluxian
can you clarify? the two what?
Émile Fugulin
@Sytten
the two endpoints
Alexandru Rosianu
@aluxian
yes, same server
Émile Fugulin
@Sytten
and I guess that messengerfordesktop.com still uses the gh-pages form your github repo
Alexandru Rosianu
@aluxian
correct
Émile Fugulin
@Sytten
Hence the need for the community to fork
(in my opinion)
I believe we still can`t point to your builds since their update urls point to the mirror endpoint
(which contains malware)
Alexandru Rosianu
@aluxian
no, let me clarify
the only endpoint that serves the ad version is /download/mirror
and the only place where that is used is on mfd.com
all updates are /update
Émile Fugulin
@Sytten
I see, its just the package urls that are pointing to the mirror endpoint (in the json)
Alexandru Rosianu
@aluxian
oops
right, i'll fix those
they're for the 1.x versions in case they still check for updates (i have no idea though)
Émile Fugulin
@Sytten
Are your legally bound to provide the website for the mirror endpoint?
Alexandru Rosianu
@aluxian
you mean the updates server that provides /download/mirror?
Émile Fugulin
@Sytten
and the gh-pages
If you are thats fine, I would just have a proposition to make it clean.
I suggest that the website be moved outside the app codebase so nothing refers to it. Another step (again just an idea), would be to create an organization (of which you would be the owner) and move the code base to it. That organization would also own the .org website (I will happily give the domain to the community).
If you want to keep the repo on your account thats fine, but moving the website outside the repo is I think essential
Alexandru Rosianu
@aluxian
not legally bound, but i'm still helping with things. i didn't separate them because it was easier
i've just removed the .nsis files from all releases
i'll move the website this weekend
so gh-pages will be cleared
i don't see the advantage of moving it to an org. besides, i love that it shows up on my github profile with 2k stars
