Comme il y a beaucoup (trop) de liens qui circulent ici qui pointent sur j'en profite pour signaler l'extension Make Medium Readable Again pour Firefox, Chrome, Chromium, Brave, et Vivaldi.

Cela permet de dégager tout ce qui empêche de lire le contenu lorsque l'on a pas un compte sur Medium: pop-up de retape, bannière géante de publication, etc.

Cela a été développé par Matt Baer le créateur de @write_as c'est du libre et cela fonctionne. boosted

As we approach #WriteFreely v1.0 and I don't see many huge changes ahead, I'm starting on our documentation.

I'm getting the core stuff (like configuration) written in a new repository now. Everything is in plain text / Markdown, which we'll eventually use to generate nice web pages on the official project site.

Contributions are always welcome, as well as suggestions for what we should include! boosted

Coming to #WriteFreely in v0.8: user invites! This'll make it much easier to run a private / invite-only community.

It's a pretty big feature, so if you're comfortable working with Go (#golang), you can help us test it out here:


Do you publish several posts a day on, especially on a free account or without an account at all? I'd love to hear what you think of some potential upcoming changes.

Mon nouveau blog est hébergé par L’occasion pour moi de dire quelques mots de ce service de publication sur le Web atypique au concept plutôt original qui combine minimalisme éditorial, respect de l’anonymat (et même droit aux identités multiples), développement open source, et intégration à la fédiverse.

Also re: , I'm still looking for feedback on what everyone would like to see in v1.0.

Is it more moderation tools? Customization? Additional features? Let me know here or (preferably) on the forums:
