In other very good news, I've release the new app I made: Swatch!

Swatch is a color palette manager with a straight forward interface for all your projects.

Coming right up on 🎉

Alright, update on the Feeds situation: I went ahead and bundled webkit. It's gonna be a substantial download, but it's finally out!

I've been itching to release this 1.0 for a long time, since it's so much better than the previous version: and , but also the very necessary cleanups and improvements, plus the new backend built on top of syndication-domination, the small library I made to parse rss/atom/opml and a little html as well.

Coming VERY soon on 😁

I just found out that the 42 runtime won't ship with with support because apparently it isn't API stable.

I've been waiting a very long time to release Feeds, and I still can't, this is very frustrating.

Fellow GNOMies, do you have any suggestions? Would it be feasible to create a webkit2gtk5 runtime extension?

Boosts appreciated

Mousai is a program which can listens to an audio source, be that your desktop audio or your microphone, and checks for any songs that it hears, providing you with the link if it can find one. This is very useful if you just can't quite put your finger on what the name of that one song is

Update: seems like the appeal got approved! Weird that it just happened like that, I didn't want to cause any trouble. Maybe it was an automated false positive.

@deckcentral@mastodon.social uhm, update: it seems like this new account has been suspended for spam. I appealed it, but I probably misunderstood the terms of use for mastodon.social. Am I not allowed to have a bot account automatically share what I post on my blog? I've seen other publications do it, so why is my case different? Anyone has any clue?

Since this whole new mozilla debacle I've been thinking about other browsers, and since chromium-based isn't an option has been on my mind.

After skimming through their FAQ, I realized that every single little thing you do with your browser is used for fingerprinting. So it comes down to either use a web browser like a normal human being or retain a little bit of privacy.

Honestly, the sooner big tech web crumbles the better. I want the old web back.

I don't know what the hell is wrong with game developers saying that making or maintaining a linux port is difficult.

I made an effing vulkan game engine completely on linux using the great tools we have for development without even breaking a sweat.

At the same time I once lost like 3 hours trying to install gcc and compile a very basic c exercise program on windows, just to see it segfault for no reason.

Why is this all so backwards?

Call for testers! I've made some pretty substantial changes to and I'd love to know if they resulted in any bugs.

Plus I'd love to be able to release the new version once the 42 runtime lands, so it's as good a time as any for a good round of testing.

If you want to help, install the latest snapshot from this page: gitlab.gnome.org/World/gfeeds/ and report any issue you find in the issue tracker.

One of the biggest problems I have with developing in and is that no static analysis tool/linter that I know of can properly interact with GObject based libraries. I started tackling this problem on my own, making a tool to generate python stubs. It's somewhat working already, but it still needs lots of improvements. If you feel like helping it'd be greatly appreciated!
