Inkscape is preparing a 6-week summer of Hackfest online, beginning Sat., July 11, @ 4 pm UTC. Live video session runs 6 hours - come for as long as you like. Learn about Inkscape's board this week. Bring your questions! Everyone welcome! Details:

I took the leap and migrated from pass to my own password manager today, asides that I had to write two patches to make it work with my real life data (alpha mind you ;)) I'm now pleasantly convinced that this is good shit and I'm not just following some daft DIY whim. :D yaaayyyy onwards to beta!

Sicuit now has a shiny website, a new demo screencast, import/export scripts for pass, and the alpha builds are getting a little less experimental every two days or so. :)

Any visual artists out there using Noveau drivers while working with Krita and Blender? I've given this a shot (been using the proprietary nvidia drivers so far) but right now it unfortunately feels like a dead end - distracting cursor lag in krita, realtime rendering glitches in EEVEE, complete crashes in blender during the most basic usage ... different experiences anyone?

#PCB design, #electronics, #KiCAD: Does anyone know of a good, possibly video, lecture series covering basic and intermediate topics? paid is ok. boosts very welcome! #pcbdesign

[V3 Roadmap] Global Search ✅ Thank you all for being so many in funding this solution! Let's go to moderation tools!

Just published the first alpha snapshot build for sicuit \(^ヮ^)/

sicuit is a minimal password store concept - like pass, but the store is just a single, structured textfile.

Wrote some proof of concept Rust FFI bindings for libeno today. Without any prior knowledge took me well under an hour for a "hello world" and about another hour for real life interaction with the parser API, shuffling around data both ways (in just around ~50 LOC). Bottom line: Surprised how easy this was, kudos to the rust team!

Today we are releasing a new beta version of #Mobilizon, both to show the progress since development resumed, but also to start testing, especially with people who would know how to install it on their server.


I successfully argued the maintainers (github owned) into allowing the addition of licenses that are popular outside of github:

I did not (yet) contest one of their other criteria which only declares licenses approved by FSF/OSI worthy of representation, but eventually this would be the really important change to facilitate - not because I want licenses on either side of the spectrum declared as "right" or "wrong" but simply because denying the ethical discourse around licenses that is going on is definitely inacceptable for a site acting as a huge gatekeeper for license information in the wider tech community.

Spent well over 2 days redesigning and rewriting, resulting in the first design that I actually really like :) (subpages still quite incomplete though) Sometimes I wonder if I'm chasing after some technological figment of mine with eno, but right now I'm again convinced of the importance and potential of the endeavour. Plaintext databases and interfaces ftw. °˖✧◝(⁰▿⁰)◜✧˖°

Good Form now supports exporting selections! With the recent additions it begins to feel like a very practical tool, not just R&D - I'm delighted. \o/

New goodie for macOS users: You can now use Cmd+Q to quit :)

Over the last half year I brought my @apertus R&D project on @Blender based automated industrial visualization back into mint condition.

It's been ported to blender 2.82, the server completely rewritten in rust and all the frontend implementation brought up to speed.Today with publishing the macOS and Windows builds the renovation project finally concludes, and I'm super happy. :)

Everyone's expressly invited to build upon the research and make something new and exciting out of the technical foundation provided: Hack it, fork it, make it yours! <3
