Cross Imageboard Login System Idea Anonymous 2021-04-25T12:36:40Z No. fprog-1TOIV0D3 [Report]

I've had this idea for some time, and have shared it on and off. I wanted to share it here though. Basically, I've had the idea of a very minimal/lightweight, free, libre, and open source, self-hostable program that provides users with a login for imageboards. How it would work is, the user would setup a username and password, then on any clients (4chanX, KurobaEx, etc.) the user would input that username and password. Then whenever they post something, it would sync to the server, then sync to their other devices. So basically no matter which device they are on, they can keep track of their watched threads, posts, bookmarks, (You)s (replies), etc. This would be a privacy friendly way for users to sync their activity between devices to keep track of everything, instead of relying on image-board logins (which most don't have anyways). The hardest part would probably be submitting a pull request to add support for the login/sync system into clients such as KurobaEx and 4chanX. At worst it's a separate extension, or someone forks them and adds it...

>>fprog-1TOIV0D3 (OP) the whole point of imagebords imo is that everyone is anonymous and you don't need an account - the only reason to need an account is if you're a moderator or a passfag, which I don't think should be a shared status among all imageboards for obvious reasons.

>>fprog-1TOIV0D3 (OP) Anyway nice idea built on air but I can't see how to implement it. You want to federate personal user data back and forth with other instances? Where do you go as a user to keep control of your data? How do you know a federation really deleted your data if you wanted it? I'd never use it

>>fprog-6XWQ0OV7 >>fprog-SIBVJ7M1 I'm failing to understand your guys' points. Did you read my entire idea? Nothing is being stored on the imageboard servers, that's the entire point of it being self-hosted. Some imageboards DO have logins, which I dislike for the exact reasons you guys mention (anonymity). The service would be something you self-host, then it would be added as an option to "log in" on clients such as KurobaEx, or browser extensions such as 4chanX. This would of course require a pull request be submitted, then accepted. They can also be forked but the devs seem like they'd be open to such. If not, a fork of the project with this feature added is always possible too. Anyways, the server itself needs to come before any of the client side stuff. The hardest part will be getting clients to add in the login feature, although it should be reasonably simple, some devs can be annoying yk. But anyways back on point, after the user logs in, it would sync down all their watched threads, (You)s, etc. and it will be synced between each client/device they login to. Everything is stored on the server, the server which is the program that I am suggesting be made. That program will run on a server that the user self-hosts, meaning it's run entirely by them, they have full control. The program would ideally also be as minimal, lightweight as possible. And of course free, libre and open source. Nothing is being touched with the imageboards, nothing is being stored on imageboard servers besides your actual public posts to them as usual, the login system is completely self-hosted, and the login prompts are added to the end clients themselves. I don't know how I can be anymore clearer than that. But you guys obviously didn't understand the point.

>>fprog-KTOLYBDX Oh I see, you've just basically reinvented the idea of public key cryptographic authentication. You make a gpg keypair, and what you're suggesting would probably be implemented as some sort of browser plugin that can use that keypair to authenticate you cross platform. Perhaps that plugin also stores what threads you are watching and polls them for any replies. Yeah ok, I just didn't understand your idea. This could be something, but it'd be pretty niche. But possible.

Anonymous 2021-05-01T21:07:49Z No. fprog-LTSWC8J9 [Report]

>>fprog-MYSR0DXC Kinda but not really, it's basically just a service that you selfhost, and it centralizes all your watched threads and boommarks on the server you host. You login on any device and it syncs it between them all. Not reeeally a hard concept idk how I can explain it any better. If you use 4chanX, or Kuroba you know about the thread watcher right? When you post to a thread, it adds it to the watch list. You can also watch threads or posts you didn't post to. Anyways basically that list will sync to your server, then your server syncs it to any other devices logged in. The lists are merged on the server and all your devices stay up to date with one another.

Interfacing with Fchan Anonymous 2021-04-19T09:32:07Z No. fprog-F6926VVH [Report]

I'm making my own chan, because there weren't enough chans already. So how can I make it interface with fchan? How does it work in a nutshell? I send POST requests to fchan, fchan sends POST requests to me? We keep seperate databases? Verification?

>>fprog-ARWGGSPK do anonymous imageboards fit in with microblog type systems that usually have a login attached to each post? how would a post from or to peertube look without a user login? would it be a post dedicated to that video?

>>fprog-DOJ72ZI8 AFAI have been told the boards are the actors, aka "users". PreferredUsername is probably set to "anonymous" or something. So you would "follow" the "user" fchan.xyz/prog/ and then see "anonymous" post on your feed.

>>fprog-B80MCOQQ That's how fchan works, but how would fchan federate with pleroma, mastodon, peertube etc where the original quote was referencing the mastodon url posted about auth standards.

Anonymous 2021-04-24T10:08:56Z No. fprog-8C2S6A3I [Report]

>>fprog-VJ1IU688 as of now, not. fchan needs to abide by their rules and setup if it wants to federate. The http request signature and a simple shared key for all boards seem pretty easy to add though. There's probably an opensll library available for go.

Anonymous 2021-04-25T00:14:31Z No. fprog-9VIPQZ85 [Report]

Being closer to what other federated services do sounds like a decent idea. I'm also having trouble imagining what crossposting between something like pleroma and fchan would be like but maybe someone will come up with an inventive interface that would make it work?

How is it that in order to be very good programmer, you need to be very logical and mathematical, yet the field is full of trannies? Is this not a contradiction? I don’t get it.

i want to make a curses TCG which has some form of meme blockchain to keep track of card rarity and ownership of cards. challenging opponents through a network

Anonymous 2021-02-05T03:21:10Z No. fprog-BAYDDEEY [Report]

>>fprog-T62PQHNG Sounds rather easy, and also fun. Ignore the curses for now, interfaces can just be built on top of a sane backend. Rather that putting it on top of an existing blockchain product, you could modify one of them to make tokens equal cards, or via a token system. Might even be fun to make the system generic enough that other people can build their own card system on top of it just by modifying a few configuration files.
