When you start reading Color Separation Conventions for PostScript Language Programs, a technical note from Adobe in 1996, you know you’re taking the wrong path : /

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!

@k_purpose I quite randomly ended in choosing p.lu, maybe mostly by its domain name! p.lu/w/dTokJutm2ocd9yf2d1iNbV

@k_purpose I just switched! And discovered shotcut.org/ but still didn’t really tried it.

@entreprecariat Thanks! For some of the students I work with, indesign is already an unusual workflow, and many of them have a rather clumsy use of it (anchoring notes is hard…) Some of them are used to writing tools like Zettlr, Evernote (plain text / markdown). I imagined this tool as the hypothesis bringing the least friction from the native files, while building on heavily documented, easily hostable and rather simple language that is PHP. Some have already tested it, and the feedbacks are pretty good so far. Text integration is faster than in Indesign! (It's when it comes to the iconography that things become a bit more complex.)

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): modesofcriticism.org/its-nice-

Unparenthesized `a ? b : c ? d : e` is not supported. Use either `(a ? b : c) ? d : e` or `a ? b : (c ? d : e)`

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. accentgrave.net/log/

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