fuck big tech.
@libreture yeah I hear he's working on something. Not sure how fast there will be a solution though.
Might just have to try a spreadsheet for 1 year until there is a viable option.
I could literally survive with 3 pieces is info per book: title - author, book cover, and link to book info. Even 2 after the only essential things.
An automated spreadsheet wouldn't be that bad... If I could type in the book and it automatically found the book cover, that would make me happy.
I'm building it in my free time so the end of the year is not a likely launch window... but it will definitely be announced when it is!
It will definitely be for some people to host and others to use, and the goal is to make it federate like Mastodon, though! And even if you don't know GitLab, you can still contribute ideas and follow along with things! I try to link things intuitively. 😊
