Hi, I’m Gregor Niehl, a tech enthusiast from Germany born in 2007. I am generally interested in all things #Linux and #OpenSource.

I write apps for the #GNOME desktop, and am part of the GNOME Foundation and the GNOME Circle Committee.

TUXEDO on ARM is coming 🔧

As you may have gathered from the relevant press over the last few days, we at TUXEDO are working on an ARM notebook with a Snapdragon X Elite SoC from Qualcomm.

@tuxedocomputers Nice to see high-end ARM laptops designed for Linux!! 🚀 I was already wondering when the Snapdragon X chips would start to trickle down to Linux OEMs!

Are there any users of Adwaita-Swift by @david_swift? I'd like to chat a bit about the what the developer experience is like using those bindings. Feel free to DM me on Matrix!

@ElleGray Regardless of the mockery, I actually think it's a good job advert as well 😄

Letterpress now has a nightly Flatpak, available from the GNOME Nightly repository!

Back from outing: getting out of #fish is really hard. Tried going back to #bash (even with #blesh), tried #OilShell and none of them really work (failed bug reports). Sad. Anybody know about actually working POSIX-compatible interactive shell which actually works and at least from distance can compete with fish?

@mcepl I've heard good things about nushell, although I've never tried it.

@mcepl Of course, zsh is also always an option. More conservative than fish, but more innovative than bash.

When will I learn to only use rm -rf if rm -r fails?

I learned by accident today that you can change your working directory in Fish shell using Alt and the left/right arrow keys. It basically keeps track of the history of your directory navigation, and flips through your history.

#Shell #fish #fishShell #pwd

Also discovered accidentally, the same keys in a normal text field move the word that the cursor is on to the right or left, swapping it with the word next to it.

@lw64 I really enjoy using fish, it's full of random little niceties like this, but still manages to be really intuitive and easy. The CLI tools that I use that need some form of shell integration all provide first-class support and documentation for fish.

Especially autocompletion and command suggestion I find really helpful.

gregorni,
@gregorni@fosstodon.org avatar

@lw64 I guess I meant auto suggestion, not autocompletion. Fish can tab-complete commands, but it can also suggest commands based on autocompletion data, as well as your command history. So yes, it's a lot better than bash. Kind of intelligent, almost.

Atuin and starship are special tools for modifying the shell, they have fish support.

Homebrew and cargo somehow need to tell the shell to include their respective bin directories, and they also provide instructions for fish.

I'm surprised such a thing actually exists: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Artificial_stupidity

"Artificial stupidity is a term used within the field of computer science to refer to a technique of 'dumbing down' computer programs in order to deliberately introduce errors in their responses. "

#Moshidon community: We are currently experimenting in @moshidon nightly with removing duplicate settings that can already be controlled from the system preferences. Specifically this time the haptic feedback/vibration setting.
Does your phone have an option to disable it in the system settings (called Touch feedback, usually found under Accessibility > Vibrations & Haptics)?
If not, please reply with your Android version and phone brand so we can take this into account, thanks!

@FineFindus @moshidon I have the option, and it's in the in the expected location. If it somehow helps, I'm on Android 12L, on a vanilla AOSP GSI ROM.

/ / / folks, plz compare:

In your experience, would UX from the 2nd link distract, overstimulate or bother you in a way that represents an issue?

Note: I'm not the one proposing this, I'm not even affected. I ask for the sake of others; polling for statistical sample size.

@nekohayo I don't have ADHD or a similar disorder, but I wanted to say prefer the left-aligned scheme.

@FineFindus I actually posted this in reaction to https://hachyderm.io/@matzipan/112508954361116717

I also had Loupe in mind.

Somehow the following pseudocode:

if not condition:  
 return;  
do_stuff  

feels much more intuitive to me than

if condition:  
 do_stuff;  

Anyone else feel that way?

#programming #ifStatement

gregorni,
@gregorni@fosstodon.org avatar

@rdbende In that case an else-block makes sense, yes. I was thinking of a case where there is no else-block, in which case I prefer the early return.

I wrote a working Brainfuck interpreter! 🚀

I might rewrite it in a couple of programming languages, and then publish the bunch.

I feel like the Nothing company went from "Let's make phones less distracting" to "Let's push AI down everyone's throat!" 😢

@GalacticBox I feel like that too 😢 It's too bad, I felt like they had a lot of potential, but they've just attached their whole brand identity to hype.
