Random shout out for @brainblasted who has done amazing work right across @gnome 40 adapting apps to new patterns and fixing longstanding UX bugs

This will be an amazing release and a lot of that is thanks to Chris

…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


Just in time before GNOME 40's UI freeze, I updated Characters's UI a bit to match the HIG.


There isn't that much completely new in this video: I've showed a lot of these things individually before, just not pieced together.

In libhandy 1.1 we will get a better API for HdyAvatar for using a custom image. You can set a GLoadableIcon (which includes GdkPixbuf and GFIleIcon) that is then loaded, resized and displayed automatically by HdyAvatar.

@exalm and @KekunPlazas helped a lot getting it merged, thank you very much.

Rounded bottom corners and the redesigned preferences dialog just landed in Nautilus 🎉

Thanks to @KekunPlazas and António Fernandes for making it happen!

New tabs are in Epiphany master 🎉

Huge kudos to @exalm for making it happen!

If you haven't used Epiphany in a while I encourage you to check it out once 40 hits.


An experiment from the last weekend.

This demo is a complete ripoff of, I mean inspired by:


The presets are mostly from the react-spring demo as well, though they are a placeholder.

Partially based on the implementation from github.com/robb/RBBAnimation

Shouts out to:

Manuel Genovés (not on Fediverse) - help with the math
@tbernard - design

I just published the first release of Decoder on Flathub ! It's a fancy toy app for scanning and generating QR codes.
Powered by Gtk4 & GStreamer


Well lets see how long this lasts then

I think 2020 will go down as the year we found out just how many people would hide their zombie bites

The new GNOME shell design is definitely cool, from briefly trying it out. I can’t wait for it to get more polish as GNOME 40 approaches.

A: “I can’t build the app because of this issue.” Me: “Use this tool to solve the issue.” A: “I don’t want to use that tool, stop pushing that tool at me. It doesn’t solve anything” Me: “It literally solves your issue.” A: “This time.”
