Offering $50 via PayPal to the first person who completes a working Mastodon patch to switch from uws to ws. Only this file is affected afaict:
@sir why do you want that?
@szbalint uws was abandoned by its maintainers and mastodon is pinned to node 10 because of it
Nice! I just put my eyes on an USB rubber ducky...
May I know the reason of the switch?
@ilpianista uws was abandoned upstream, it's pinning mastodon to node 10, and its native dependencies are a huge headache for me as a sysadmin
@sir Will creating an issue and posting a bounty be a greater incentive? https://www.bountysource.com/teams/mastodon/issues
@sir API looks similar. Simple
--- const WebSocket = require('uws');
+++ const WebSocket = require('ws');
might be enough, or am I missing something?
@czero1 no, that's not enough
