As of today, akedia supports Webauthn and TOTP for 2Factor Authentication. Some notes on this:
- TOTP is used as a fallback in case Webauthn cannot be used. I got the idea from gitea
- My phone does not support Webauthn (yet?). Here TOTP is the only option.
- Only one U2F Device is supported, which is my Trezor One. In the future I may add the option to add multiple devices.
- I’m very confused about the state of Webauthn on Android/Firefox. This post on xda says Webauthn is available on certain devices, whatever that means.
- Google supports Webauthn, afaik it only works with Google Play Services, which I have not installed on my phone. Does that mean Webauthn on Android only works with Google Play Services? Dunno.
- Webauthn does not work via my Trezor connected via OTG on my phone.
Despite the limited use cases (for now), I’m still very exited for Webauthn. A world without passwords seems too good to be true.
I’m contemplating RSS and reading articles. Since my introduction to the fediverse I actually treated my timeline like a feed reader and mostly read articles from hackernews and stuff that people shared. I’ve also implemented a rough microsub server in akedia. Which mostly works, but man, parsing feeds is hard
So yesterday I installed miniflux which is a no-frills RSS reader and I love it. The simplicity of RSS is really intriguing to me. Most blogs I read (still) have RSS support even if they don’t advertise it. (For example Hugo has
/index.xml in the default configuration)
So I will run with miniflux for now and see how it goes.
PS: Readably is a really nice android reader with support for a lot of selfhosted readers/aggregators through the fever api.
