@nextcloud @tuxpost2 the idea is great, most examples are not. I've just checked a few: many of them include a bunch of evil trackers (Facebook etc), are sitting behind Cloudflare (ugh, which is even recommended as replacement for Google DNS? Yuck! And Zoom, yikes! Where are the 👎 ?), etc. Some I couldn't even open as they are in uBlock Origin's default blocks.
"Privacy-friendly alternatives to Google that don't track you"? 🤣
So: Yes, please check them out – but look very closely when making your choice!
Oh, special thanks for the Analytics hint!!! Any of those suitable for Android apps, so I can add them to my F-Droid snippet?
Looks like Posthog might be a candidate…
@humanetech Oh, you want more? Are you taking suggestions for your list? Geolocation: microG has some modules; TowerCollector (Android App) feeds MLS and OpenCellID; OsmAnd; Fedi-Apps for Android: https://android.izzysoft.de/applists/category/named/fediverse ; Tracking: AFWall+ and AdAway on Android. In general, my AppLists make things transparent for Android users: which apps are privacy-friendly ("star"), how many (and which) trackers inside…
@IzzyOnDroid will check these out. Thanks much!
@IzzyOnDroid I have made your input a reminder issue on the repo (bit time constrained now): https://github.com/humanetech-community/awesome-humane-tech/issues/50
@humanetech Note that ACRA is officially accepted by F-Droid even.
@IzzyOnDroid is ACRA the resource list you are maintaining?
PS. Note that I decided not to include nomoregoogle because of what's on the list.
@humanetech ACRA is on the GitLab snippet with the F-Droid hints.
And yes, good decision with nomoregoogle. I mean, the worst they have made is claiming "not spy on you", check manually – and then blandly violate that statement. That's like taking Ricin to not be poisoned by Cyanide. They do have good candidates on their list, though, but should not have accepted the bad ones just to get the list full.
@humanetech Thanks, but I'm already maintaining enough stuff, cannot cope with even more: my eBook server, my app lists, my F-Droid repo, the official F-Droid repo… Wish I'd get paid for this full-time, then I could add even more power to it…
@IzzyOnDroid yeah time... pfew. Have the same problem.
Given some time available I'll look to give https://codeberg.org/teaserbot-labs/delightful-funding a good boost. Right now I am just adding something in an issue to add later.
@IzzyOnDroid I am really interested in funding and revenue models for FOSS and sustainable business.
There's another list waiting for me there: https://codeberg.org/teaserbot-labs/delightful-sustainable-business/
(the list must go on, ha ha %)
@IzzyOnDroid I have added some meat to the funding list.. just tooted about them.
@humanetech Cool, thanks! I wish it good growth. I tried the NLNet "lottery" once, but didn't win…
@nextcloud I mean good idea but like a ton of the recommendations are WORSE than their Google counterparts.
