To everyone who suggested 'bat' for cat:ing patch files, thanks!

Really liking it so far!

What's the go-to solution for viewing diffs (i.e patch files) in the terminal, with colors?

E.g 'cat foobar.patch', but with colors?

Any users out there running it under KDE/Plasma?

Looking for testers of a performance improving PR:

The task would be to verify that a) it actually works (i.e. no rendering glitches, at least no more than usual 😂 ), and b) it improves performance.

Reverted to 5.11. The backlight was eating the battery for breakfast...

First time in many years something breaks like this.

Linux 5.12 broke my laptop's backlight. Yay :/

Guess I should be happy it's stuck at 100% and not 0% though...

Just merged:

Improved 'bell' configuration in . Most importantly, the ability to execute a custom command, regardless of whether the window is focused or not.

And once has been implemented, things will look really good :)

I hear Sway has a new default terminal emulator.

Rasterizing an anti-aliased curve is annoyingly difficult...

Spent half the day programming C pre-processor macros :/

@selea jag får "SSL certificate problem: certificate has expired"-fel mot sen idag, tror jag.

Working on text shaping in fcft, primarily for fancy, and *very* important things like emoji ZWJ sequences.

But looks like we now, almost by accident, also supports RTL scripts, like arabic, even when mixed with LTR scripts.

At least it _looks_ right, to someone like me who has no clue what he's doing... 😂

It's that time again... for another release!

1.7.2 is out 🎉

* pywal no longer turns foot windows transparent
* change selection fg/bg at runtime (used by e.g. pywal)
* fixed regression in the escapes sent for certain key combinations
* new value, 'palette-based', for the bold-text-in-bright option.
* underline cursor is now visible on underlined text
* new option: box-drawings-uses-font-glyphs=yes|no

Don't like the new line- and box drawing characters in 1.7?

The next release will have an option to revert to the old behavior, where font glyphs are used instead.

Trying out the base16-default-dark color theme.

I've been using solarized-dark for a couple of years. While I like it, there's too much blue in it in my opinion.

Might just have found a worthy replacement :)

Fun with sixel and git commit messages:

Beware! This *will* crash (on the second run) , unless you run a build that has (latest git HEAD at the moment).

It's there a way to specify optional make dependencies in Arch PKGBUILD files?

The man page suggests it isn't...

Note that URL handling is a bit different in foot compared to other terminal emulators.

TL;DR - it's keyboard driven:

1.7.0 is out 🎉

The big new thing is URLs - both auto detected and OSC-8 based URLs.

Another pretty big thing is that foot now renders box drawing characters itself, instead of using font glyphs.

We've also added support for transparent sixels, improved double- and triple-click selection, and more :)
