what do we use that oracle owns
nothing I’m pretty sure
i think all we are using is:
whatever is the host buying company we got meower.org and everything else with
We use a bunch of other stuff, but majority of the stuff we use is open source.
Well just for beta 6:
Other things that make the server work:
Cloudflared (agent is open source)
MongoDB (community edition is open source)
Everything here is open source.
Well we don’t use Java, and if we did, we would probably use the open source version (OpenJDK).
Ew Cloudflare, they aren’t privacy friendly.
Well, a third of the internet is on Cloudflare, so you can’t really get away from them. They are the only way we can deploy Meower fast, securely, and for free.
Ah, ok, well actually most of the stuff is about Cloudflare’s protection, we’ve configured it to be quite low, it’ll never block a request unless 1) we’ve enabled “We’re under attack”, 2) we’ve hard banned the IP, or 3) Cloudflare has detected it as a DDoS attack.
I just checked our security logs, nothing has been blocked by Cloudflare within the last 2 weeks.
Cloudflare provides access to our servers, without Cloudflare we would probably need to port forward which is a massive security risk and not one we can reasonably take.
I also saw they mentioned Cloudflare going down, it barely ever does (it has a lot of downtime in certain datacenters, but they get re-routed temporarily), if it goes down a third of the internet goes down so they are pretty damn fast at restoring it.
I’m pretty sure we can supply our own certificate so Cloudflare won’t be able to access any data between our servers and the users of Meower, but that costs money and Cloudflare offers it to us for free.
I’m also sure Cloudflare does not do anything with data inside of request bodies (they do look at request URIs but that’s only logged for like 2 weeks. The people at Cloudflare seem pretty genuine.
