Completely lost in QPDF “readable” PDF output code, trying to understand commands, sizes and units.

Having lot of trouble with browser-generated PDFs that I cannot stop to having a white background. If anybody already met this problem and has a solution, any help would be greatly appreciated!

Since a few days, the ÉSAD Pyrénees is switching its standardized formatting template for master thesis from to (md → php → html → ). Responsive web & print design, side notes, images notes, appendices, interviews, bibliography... The goal is to speed up the formatting phase to leave more time for writing, and to promote the sharing of the produced documents.

Just read (once again? sounds so familiar… and still so necessary) Francisco Laranjo / Modes of Criticism rant on It's nice that and friends (2018):

Currently strugling, editing and runing a 1200 lines long python script to migrate a full Django DB to Kirby flat files structure.

So sad, angry and desperate by the results of the French elections tonight.

Tomorrow, almost tomorrow, I will vote so that a crack exists in the wall. — A note on upcoming French elections.

Currently writing an awfully long e-mail to @raphael and @QuentinJuhel (you're advised ;) about some hypothesis.

Leaving Bruxelles. I shouldn't travel to cities where one can meet such great publishers and print designers. My suitcase overflows and I look like a moving bookshop.

Being in Bruxelles these days to meet some nice people around the Erg. @raphael, I heard you might be there too?

@julienbidoret Still not used to toots syntax… @gee wrote the text linked above.

À quelques semaines du 1er tour, voilà où j'en suis de mes réflexions…

Hi Lukers of the world. I am Julien. Graphic designer and web developer, I lead Webdesign and Digital writing courses at the Ecole supérieure d'art et de design des Pyrénées in Pau, South of France. I gather projects, courses, code snippets and various proposals on My interests lead me towards exploratory practices of digital art and design, sometimes connected with the approaches developed by the initiative. I am also leading an emerging research project on what I call “radical approaches” to webdesign:

We are an instance for discussions around cultural freedom, experimental, new media art, net and computational culture, and things like that.
