#community-first portal

moinho.app.jpg

Took some time this week to do some work on #moinho's community portal. With @Nico Pace's help I got an online version and a local version of moinho.app working, both with SSL.

Through an APC grant the community worked on two local newspapers and collected information on local goods and services. The points in the map show every person/family and the goods/services they provide, with a button to message them through Whatsapp.

The local infrastructure also has some services, that have been proven to be useful, running, such as an SSB infra (pub and browser-client), Youtube-DL UI, Jellyfin, Kolibri and Internet speed-test.

Next steps

To make SSB really inviting for the community we need a separate network, thus pubs/rooms for that network, as documented in @arj's blog post. I've been working on Dockerfiles for easily creating rooms/pubs with different network keys: ssb-infra. But still not there yet.

In the future this portal app should be a #ssb-browser instance itself, so that users can post their locations, goods/services and send/receive messages all from within the app.

Very excited to get some community feedback and export this to other #communitynetworks.

We're experimenting with co-buying goods in #moinho, so we expanded the community app to show the cycles in a more acessible way, other then the original spreadsheet, where the data comes from.

The organizing unfortunately happens mostly through WhatsApp, but giving more usefulness to the app might bring more people-in and enable shift to using SSB (in the future...). Also would be good to shift to self-hosted spreadsheet solution in the future.

We had 23 participants in this first round for olive oil, which is very expensive in town. We've done other rounds, but we're really trying to systematize this time, and hopefully continue cobuying, specially more regional goods.

@Luandro Pàtwy I'd like to make it easy to setup alternative network keys with peachcloud to support this type of usecase too
