Another Shell update from the GNOME Shell & Mutter blog gets into UX changes in the works for GNOME 40. Read the whole article here: https://blogs.gnome.org/shell-dev/2021/01/01/another-shell-ux-update/
A new major version of Authenticator, powered by Rust, GTK4 & GStreamer/ZBar is on Flathub! It has all you could need for 2-Factor-Authentication from QR code scanning to custom providers support like Steam.
Grab it while hot
I just noticed that there are actually a lot of developers using my Flatpak Github Action.
If you are writing a desktop application, hosted on Github and want to make testing your latest changes easier for the users you should definitely check out
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
Wishing you all a very Happy New Year! As we look forward to a brighter 2021, Executive Director Neil McGovern reminds us of all the wonderful things we accomplished together in this very unique year. https://www.gnome.org/news/2020/12/looking-back-on-2020-with-neil-mcgovern/
libhandy 1.0.3 released! Just another bunch of bug fixes, really.
I wrote a pretty dumb qr code generator while playing with Gtk 4's Paintable API, pretty fancy stuff
Source code at: https://gitlab.gnome.org/bilelmoussaoui/paintable-rs
So I started porting my apps to GTK 4 and the first one is Authenticator. On the menu: GTK4 of course, a ton of new features & complete rewrite in Rust
The source code is available at https://gitlab.gnome.org/World/Authenticator
I have been working a lot lately on gtk4 rust bindings (with over than 180 commits in the last 2 months). There are still a lot of things to be done if we want the bindings to be in a very good shape (they are very usable though) by the release of gtk4.
If you would like to support the work I do to improve the Rust & GNOME <3, you can do so on https://liberapay.com/bielmoussaoui
If you’re interested in gtk-rs, I just landed initial support for composite templates in gtk4-rs!
If you want to see how to use it, take a look at the example here:
Imagine there existed a cooperative dedicated to bringing GNOME forward, and its members worked full time on polishing the ecosystem.
If the designers and engineers announced their projects, and a communication team kept you posted of progress.
Would you throw money at it? And how would you contribute?
🔄 boosts welcome
Another batch of fixes, now we can start merging new features for the upcoming 1.1. :)
