Today's Port of the Week is about Lagrange, a gemini web browser.

Lagrange is the finest browser I ever used and it's still brand new. I imported it into OpenBSD and so it will be available starting from OpenBSD 6.9 releases.
Lagrange is fantastic in the way it helps the user with the content browsed.
- Links already visited display the last visited date
- Subscription on page without RSS is possible for pages respecting a specific format (most of gemini space does)
- Easy management of client certificates, used for authentication
- In-page image loading, video watching and sound playing
- Gopher support
- Table of content displayed generated from headings
- Keyboard navigation
- Very light (dependencies, memory footprint, cpu usage)
- Smooth scrolling
- Dark and light modes
- Much more
If you are interested into Gemini, I highly recommend this piece of software as a browser.
In case you would like to host your own Gemini content without requiring infrastructure, some community servers are offering hosting through secure sftp transfers.

Un bon café !
Once you get into Gemini space, I recommend the following resources:
CAPCOM feed agregator, a great place to meet new authors
GUS: a search engine
