@pimterry yeah, I think you're right there. Something in that area is causing me problems though :)

if you pin the dependencies on your npm package to "^x.x.x", so you never allow updates to minor versions, only patch versions, I hate you.

@andrew hi! Welcome to mastodon.me.uk (from your friendly neighbourhood admin)

Fizzbot getting a lift on Unicornbot. Great work @rossatkin@twitter.com!

Are there any CLI tools out there for automating setup of dev ecosystem tools like codecov, dependabot/dependencies.io, codacy across multiple repositories? Github marketplace did a good job, but Gitlab is less easy.

If I had all the money in the world I'd pay someone else to break in my new DMs.

Evening choices:

* [ ] Play Sunless Skies (released yesterday)
* [ ] Play Spinnortality (released today)
* [ ] Fix my E:D HOTAS configuration now I've realised that most of the bindings are terrible
* [x] Turn off computer and go do something else instead

Open social media for the UK

A social media community hosted in the UK; part of the Mastodon/ActivityPub federated social network, which allows you to follow users on other communities. It's a bit like Twitter but without a single company in control.

If you use this server, you are required to abide by our Code of Conduct. If you don't like it, there are plenty of other communities you can use.

If you're coming here from Twitter, there are some very useful services to help you find friends and automatically crosspost toots that you might like to set up once you're signed in.


This is a volunteer-run community administered by @floppy, and hosted by Mastohost in the UK. Please support our running costs by joining the Open Collective and becoming a backer. Thanks go to our existing backers - this place exists because of them!

Service status is available from our status page and the @status account.
