1111 apps on Flathub 🎉

Huge kudos to @barthalion, @wjt, @bilelmoussaoui and everyone else who helped to get it to this point!

Anybody remembers that video where an AI makes human faces that correspond to a techno-like beat music? I forgot to favorite when it was shared here... :sadlinux:

#MadeAThing …and a year later @brainblasted finally got it out into the world (Thank You :-) )

Typography is another little “tool-app” from the @gnome Design Tooling Team as a companion to (Colour) Palette offering buttons to copy various css classes/characters you may need in your app/mockup

Along the way we got a couple of gtk4 bugs ironed out, thanks @exalm et al for the help with that

As ever some nice artwork from @tbernard

Asking for help, financial aid 

Hey everyone. I'm currently financially in a bad situation. Lockdown is back, I have no money, I'm disabled and I can't buy food. If you could help, don't feel obliged to, but any help is welcome. Thank you, boosts appreciated.

Can we please, please – PLEASE! not make the nonsensical US date format month/day/year the default in applications? 🤦‍♂️

PRE 👏 TTY 👏 PLEASE

And to all users of that format: it makes no sense, it's counter-intuitive, it makes collaboration frustrating, it introduces inconsistencies and errors... Just stop. Please. Use international standards.
(And don't get me started on your other units of weights, volumes and distances. Bloody hell.)

Boost if I'm right.

Merveillites, any tips to avoiding burnout or disinterest to continue to do something? :moar:

Today marks 1 year and 9 months of studying Japanese alone. Almost 2 years. Time flies. 🦾

This [Google's new web standard] threatens to change the web from a hyperlinked collection of resources to opaque all-or-nothing ‘blobs’ (like PDFs or SWFs).

Fiddling with Plan9 on a VM...

This really feels like a OS of the future. I love how none of the Acme commands have names that correspond to what eventually became common terms like Copy, Paste, etc. Instead it's Snarf, Zerox, etc.

Question: is there some sort of "dock" or "panel" for Plan9?

@neauoire 's struggle with more faux ease-of-use has set in stone my theories that modern OSes have to have a paradigm shift from windows and panels, to something akin to Mercury OS - [mercuryos.com/] in UI.

Something that guides you and organizes things for you in a distractionless and focused environment free of cruft from old 80's GUI conventions fossilized in our GUIs today.

Imagine something like this, with the futuristic aesthetic of Merveillan projects?

Wondering how to inject a div with a class to my sidebar links to pages on my site, so that they are inside a dropdown when on mobile... 🤔

Finally made a page for my own Design System that I'll use on my apps, and hopefully inspire others.

Revel in the marvels of the universe. We are a collective of forward-thinking individuals who strive to better ourselves and our surroundings through constant creation. We express ourselves through music, art, games, and writing. We also put great value in play. A warm welcome to any like-minded people who feel these ideals resonate with them.
