Hey @cassidyjames I have a WebDev question for you, if you don't mind:
Do you try actively to have as little JS as possible on websites, or just, you know, whatever bit is needed to make things function as they should?
I was just pondering your statement about 'yay for the new blog having no JS' something i can understand for it's own sake, but i was wondering if that's how you feel in general about JS and why?
I personally hate JS, as a language, but it's still pretty useful.
got that new Ethernet icon in #elementary
Damn that's sexy!
@cassidyjames Wow. How innovative...
Though, I think i recall something like... Lenovo Yoga... something, Dell XPS 2-in-1... nah.
Apple's probably the first to do the Tablet/laptop in one thing
From all the hosting providers and cloud stuff I've tried out so far, #DigitalOcean is the one i like the best.
It's SO easy and simple to use. And it's pretty cheap as well. For Droplets at least.
So i read the post about how the ethernet icon had changed in #elementary OS
How come it's not changed here? 🧐️
#vala still has me sceptical. Overall it seems a decent enough language, if occassionally a bit messy.
But man, does developing in it take forever. Things I can do a couple of hours in C# takes days in vala simply because i have to work around odd quirks of GLib and GObject that seemingly make no sense at all.
I've had a problem in #vala for some time now. It has been driving me nuts.
I had an interface, that inherited Gee.Collection<specificClass> and implemented an abstract class for it: AbstractClass : Gee.AbstractCollection<SpecificClass> but i kept getting a GObject assertion error. Now i changed the interface to inherit the AbstractCollection<SpecificClass> instead, and now it's not a problem.
...What the fuck.
Get work done. Or play.
Stay productive and focused with Multitasking View, Picture-in-Picture, Do Not Disturb, and more. Or keep work out of sight when watching videos or playing games. elementary OS is built to cater to your workflow. https://buff.ly/2GarNd2
Hi there fellow #elementary app devs.
I was wondering, does anyone else make use of the app 'ValaCompiler' ?
While i enjoy #vala overall, the documentation on how to use delegates is shite.
I went through it three times I think without properly understanding it, then I ended up making a couple of guesses and thanks to the #valaTester app for #elementary by Bart Zaalberg, trying out these things aren't too difficult.
While writing unittests (particularly in #vala) is one of the most tiresome parts of doing quality implementation work, watching the tests all pass successfully is a very satisfying experience 🤓️
Hey @cassidyjames, I was wondering if there is a specific reason there are no appratings in the appcenter?
I'm not opposed to there being no way to rate apps, It's just with a good deal of the curated ones, it'd be nice to sort of give a 'I approve of this' or '👍️' kind of thing, so other users know that this app is just the best.
