Back when the GNU project was starting, among the first things they rewrote as Free Software were:
- text editor / IDE (Emacs)
- assembler, linker, and compiler
- make

IOW, they made tools that they needed to further develop Free Software without relying on proprietary tools.

They wanted their project to be self-hosting.

Nowadays, we have more free software than ever, but we develop it using github and Discord...

@n8 Compared with other platforms (mainly music streaming; but also news sites) I find YT'd reccs actually pretty good. Especially the one based on my subscriptions and when browsing music. // The "public timeline" or what it's called is crap; and to the Relateds on some random video I usually (except when music browsing) don't pay attention to.

@bkastl ich habe letztens "Undercover"-Fahrscheinkontrolleure ohne Hingucken (quasi ausm Augenwinkel) erkannt. Da war ich selbst von beeindruckt. Wenn man bewusst drauf achtet, ist das ja seit Jahren keine Kunst mehr.

I know, separation of concerns etc., but I replaced Templates with the much more flexible Jinja2 again. Good that these are (almost) first-class citizen in Django nowadays. 🐍

@blabber seit wir den Kampf gegen „der Blog“ verloren haben, bin desillusioniert.

@inAktion @irgendwiejuna ich habe als Kind TKKG gehört; heute gibt es besseres, finde ich. Falls jemand Empfehlungen für Kids 4-10 braucht, ich kann ausholen ;)

Not sure if something like this exists yet, I haven't looked too far into it, but it would be really nice to have a FOSS app for advanced timers/alarms.

I've been using "Clock" from F-Droid but it doesn't seem to support timers that go off every x minutes, or setting an alarm relative to the current time (i.e. six hours from now).

@chartier good question. Subscribing didn't work really well for us, too. Years back and we didn’t try really hard. My current web hoster has OpenExchange included, and I wanted to try that. OTHO the analog family calendar in the kitchen seems to work well enough.

People who share a calendar or events with a significant other: how do you actually do it?

Do you subscribe to each other's 'personal' calendar to see events? Do you collaborate on a single calendar? Invite each other to events the other should be aware of?

Jess and I have tried a variety of these solutions with mixed results. Subscribed calendars sometimes disappear, shared events sometimes disappear.

We're both on Apple devices but she's on gCal because of work. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

phew! I did a big update to Medic, my #Rust CLI that checks KeePass databases for breached/weak/duplicate passwords. It's now more of a real CLI!

big h/t to @bugaevc for tipping me off to structopt (github.com/TeXitoi/structopt), which was pretty intuitive!

@eitland there is no decision to be made. I'm not designing a new languages. And existing languages work one way or the other. I was just curious what people think the right™ should be. Imho ordered is convenient, but not ordered is correct 😉

@hirnbrot the blur is calculated on upload, so a one-time fee to pay.

@hirnbrot it is nicer looking; it gives you a hint what to expect (as said: the blurriness factor is debatable, but you can usually diff. between a landscape, a screenshot, and people/skin tones). It's not free but pretty light-weight: a 32x32px canvas element is rendered in the client.

First bunch of talks I watched were all of very high quality and information density. Thanks & congrats to all the folks involved in this great event! 👍 🐍

@Mainebot hm, the fix to my phone's loading issues: rubber band 😫

I gave a talk at #PyCon2019 about #mastodon, #activitypub, and how to use it with #python. And why you might want to! The video is up now: youtube.com/watch?v=3AQZfXG-ZX

Łukasz Langa on the Black formatter for code. The talk goes into some detail on concrete syntax trees & Black's implementation of formatting, which may be too esoteric if you're just interested in using Black, but wraps up with some brief tips on usage.
