      Please do! The whole point of wanting to use #GetTogether is to get away from the proprietary surveillance services. #FeatureRequest: Local Login

      #GetTogether looks great, but I can't figure out how to sign up -- there's only buttons for #Google, #Facebook, #Twitter and #GitHub, and I'm not about to use those...

      bobjonkman favorited something by strypey: I wonder how hard it would be to combine a blog and wiki into one user-facing tool?

So, yes, people will be bringing politics, rights, and representation into tech with them.The only people I see whining about politics being brought into tech are (checks notes) oh look. White men.

For the first phase I'm not even using any CSS.It's much more rewarding than I thought it would be. It's forcing me to think about what information […]

      Ah. Never mind. But it should be possible to do an install using text-to-speech; I've never done it, tho. There are several #blind techs in the !Fediverse who may be able to give advice.

Auto-Type Keywords for KeepassX

Posted by Bob Jonkman on 1st November 2016

KeepassX

I use KeePassX to keep track of passwords for web sites, server logins, and encrypted disks. And, at the touch of a keystroke, KeepassX can auto-type login names and passwords to those web sites, servers, and disks.

By default, KeepassX sends the sequence

{USERNAME}{TAB}{PASSWORD}{ENTER}

but if the Username field is blank then KeepassX just sends

{PASSWORD}{ENTER}

or if the Password field is blank then KeepassX only sends

{USERNAME}{ENTER}

But what other things can KeepassX send? A quick look at the AutoType.cpp source code reveals these additional keystrokes:

  • {tab}
  • {enter}
  • {up}
  • {down}
  • {left}
  • {right}
  • {insert} or {ins}
  • {delete} or {del}
  • {home}
  • {end}
  • {pgup}
  • {pgdown}
  • {backspace} or {bs} or {bksp}
  • {break}
  • {capslock}
  • {esc}
  • {help}
  • {numlock}
  • {ptrsc}
  • {scolllock}
  • {add} or {+}
  • {subtract}
  • {multiply}
  • {divide}
  • {^}
  • {%}
  • {~}
  • {(}
  • {)}
  • {{}
  • {}}
  • {f1}
  • {f2} .. {f16}
