I agree that NPM should not have ideally caved in to whatever Kik™ asked them too. Also agree that NPM had the right to restore the module as dictated by the terms of license the module was distributed under. I haven’t checked but I am 99% sure that is licensed under MIT which is the darling license of the node ecosystem. When you do that you are basically opening yourself to being abused by corporations. But I don’t want to blame the victim here because it is pretty common in webdev to be seduced by sweet whispers of the “open source” “community”.
Whether the function should be a part of the standard library I am not sure. If I had to do something like that I would most likely copy paste the code from a stack overflow answer. Having a whole module for one small function seems ridiculous to me.
This user is uploading the version you are looking for but you will have to set up crack/steam emulator and creamapi yourself: https://cs.rin.ru/forum/viewtopic.php?p=2700283#p2700283
get it from rutracker.org. i use it and it works flawlessly. you can also try using krita or gimp as alternatives.
hedgedoc landing page says “real-time collaboration” but i can’t find any more info on it.
As far as I can recall he didn’t share any articles. Authorities could only guess what he was going to do with them based on a manifesto he wrote about how knowledge should be more accessible but that is technically not a crime. So the feds and MIT killed him for basically nothing. I think they wanted to make an example out of him.
I think the focus must be on an image-based design rather than a package-based one. For robustness and security it is essential to operate with reproducible, immutable images that describe the OS or large parts of it in full, rather than operating always with fine-grained RPM/dpkg style packages. That’s not to say that packages are not relevant (I actually think they matter a lot!), but I think they should be less of a tool for deploying code but more one of building the objects to deploy.
How is this different from any linux distro with docker installed on it?
You can use some translation service (google translate, deepl, etc.). Then it becomes pretty straightforward.
