I joined tilde.club a couple days ago, and I had the idea to improve the webring
so that it has "next" and "previous" links, so that you actually can follow the
ring to the end and arrive where you started, one page after the other.
Since this can only work if every page has the webring snippet in it, I have
made it so that participation is opt-in: only users with a ~/.ring file in their
home are used.
can enjoy it as well.
I explain in detail how to join the webring at
And you can see it in action at https://tilde.club/~cosarara/
I would expect people to get creative with the presentation of the
snippet. Say, instead of "Previous page" and "Next page" having
<- -> or unicode arrows, or using an old style image map, etc.
It would be cool if they didn't all look the same, is my point.
Right now, the ring has only 2 users in it (me, ~cosarara, and ~deepend), so it
is quite short.
If you like the idea, please join!
And if you don't, or have questions, just reply to this thread :)
Not sure whether this list is the right one, but I have a question about
running a small Python Flask web on tilde.club.
I saw that Python 3.8 is installed on tilde.club, so I created a
virtualenv and got all the dependencies for the app. So far so good.
I can even run the app on the Flask-built-in server and the app says
that it "is running on http://127.0.0.1:8050/“, but obviously I cannot
make tilde.club’s whole underlying web server make listen on port
So, I am curious how I could run that flask webapp, so that it can be
accessed from the outside through a subpath of my homepage
www.tilde.club/~halloleo/, for example
Maybe this is a silly question, but I really have no idea how to do
Happy web hacking,
I get pretty regularly blocked from tilde's nntp (pretty much every time
Comcast flickers and we get a new IP address) but this business of
timeouts reaching the server at all is new. Is all of Comcast under
interdict, or am I just stuck in a block with a bunch of bad actors?
(Not much choice of ISP in South Jersey. And I love you tilde but I'm
not setting up a VPN just for you.)
