New Theme & More Transparency
If you were unlucky enough to be using the git web-service during the period of 8:00 to 9:00 UTC today you may have seen a couple 404s or 503s while I was deploying the new container gitea runs in.
Two major changes have happened.
- We have cool new themes! Mainly the Catppuccin themes from here: https://github.com/catppuccin/gitea/
- I've enabled the new Actions service to be setup on our responsitories
- I've also sneakly been testing the new inbuild package repository
- & if that wasn't enough. We've setup Renovate to run under the "Slowpoke" bot account
Checkout the Catppuccin repo for some picks, or checkout your Settings > Appearance and pick one you like. I'm currently rocking the
catppuccin-macchiato-mauve and have picked a nice default
catppuccin-frappe-green for all new accounts.
If you do not like them, please of course feel free to change back to
Runners are gitea's answer to Github actions, and while it is still in alpha stages, you can test it out! Here are some examples:
Currently I'll only allow donators access to Slowb.ro's runners (ARMv8 & AMD64), but the best part is... you can self host it! See the gitea act_runner responsitory for more information on setting up a self hosted runner. (And don't forget to enable the 'Actions' setting in your responsitories!)
The Renovate bot has one addendum in that it is setup to run in the gitea runner, and unfortunately gitea runner does not currently support schedules. Follow this pull-request for more information on gitea's supporting schedules: https://github.com/go-gitea/gitea/pull/22751
Also currently I am funding this git host out of my own pocket, which is mostly because I want a git box and test out cool things. If I've popped a little widget showing our funding goal for the year. Our current goal is to get a new server which has a greater storage allowance. Currently the underlying server only has around ~15GB of space left, of it's ~60GB allowance.
While using the service is enough for me to get all warm inside, at the end of the day someone needs to pay for the compute and mostly storage. But if you wish to contribute to keeping the service online (and gaining access to some benefits) please do check it out. It even has a link to all the other information regarding what we do on the web, such as running a Metasearch engine, and DNS resolvers.
To anyone reading this, thankyou for using our service, it means a whole lot to me!
