Developing libre script replacements for sites

New offer: writing Haketilo-compatible fixes for sites you request, for a pay.
Added by koszko about 1 month ago

Hi!

Many of us are having hard time trying to use what "Web" has become
without running nonfree javascript. So far, most freesw movement's
efforts in this regard concentrated on blocking proprietary scripts in
the web browser. Since something more is needed to actually make the
js-encumbered sites work again, we're developing this browser
extension which facilitates replacing site-served scripts with
user-supplies ones. As you perhaps already know, it comes with a repository, Hydrilla1 that
serves the libre scripts developed by myself and contributors.

The tools, although not perfect, are already functional, with
100% free/libre fixes contributed for:

  • browsing of Google Drive folders
  • viewing of Google sheets
  • signing of SumOfUs petitions
  • viewing of videos on Odysee
  • and more...2

I honestly think this is cool but in order to be able to deliver more
site fixes and speed up work in general we could do with some additional
funds. Since freedom-wanting folks might be obviously interested in this thing, I
decided to offer you the following:

Writing of Haketilo-compatible fixes for sites you
request, for a pay.

How much it would cost to have one site fixed will obviously depend on
how complex it is. Just send a link to the website you're interested in (either on this tracker or in email to koszko@koszko.org) for its difficulty to get rated.

Besides, it'd be great to hear some feedback from the freesw
community. If you already tried out Haketilo, you can also share
what you did or did not like.
