when working on creating a #ProgrammingLanguage there are many things to consider. I'll recommend starting my looking into Finite Automatons (DFA's, NFA's, PDA's), Context Free Grammars, Lexers, Parsers and Abstract syntax trees.
On that note, The more I work with these things, the more, strangely, i come to like #C
Also, in regard to that tag: see what i did there 😊️
I am a huge fan of #letsencrypt
When considering #Licensing, which would choose to fulfill the following criteria:
- You can freely use the software
- You are free to modify the software
- Any changes in a modified version, used in projects accomodating the public, e.g. a search engine, a serverbackend for some client, or a distributed program must be made public
- The original creator must be credited for his work
Is it the AGPL ? I'm kind of uncertain.
@cassidyjames How'd you get my Laptop?!
Nah, I kid. How does elementary OS run on an XPS? :D
also, is that the 13"?
There's a guy in my Semester on the university running Linux on one. But he says the only DE he has run so far that plays nice enough with the (what, 4K?) display is KDE on Fedora.
@cassidyjames In Denmark, we pay about 45% of our income in taxes.
Everything we buy, has an 25% added to the price, as sales tax (we don't see that, but you can get the number by taking the price of the item in question and multiply it by 0.2)
In return, we can apply for about $1000/month while doing an education (that's something like $800 on the account) and our universities and so on are all free. So is the hospitals.
But yeah, companies like Coca cola don't pay a dime
Does anyone have some experience with #elementary files and webdav? When i use the address to the nextcloud server on my raspberry pi, it seemingly connects and then returns to the login screen, which is very annoying. I was kind of hoping to use this for a fileshare.
@cassidyjames at the risk of being bothersome: Can you point me to some place where i can enable my app to handle certain types of protocols, such as:
I know you've done it with AppCenter links, somehow, but glancing at the code it's not immediately obvious to me.
While developing with #vala and #gtk for #elementary is certainly fun, I'm having some issues with the GLib.ListModel, so much so that I'm considering doing a Box based object to replace ListBox, that does not depend on it, but rather can use a slightly modified version of Gee.ArrayList 🙄
But that makes me feel dirty too.
Hrm, what to do...
@cassidyjames How do you open external applications from a GTK window? Say, triggering a new mail in the default mail program, or opening a browser window. Would those just be by use of the LinkButton? (with mail being email@example.com)
I've had my #OnePlus 6T for a week now, and boy am I loving it!
Did a tiny bit of Vala coding today for the first time in a long time, on an #elementary app that will eventually be released into the wild. As it happens I just finished writing a lot of Java code for a semester project. The summation of my experiences might seem simpleminded, but imo:
Vala > Java
io.elementary.code > IntelliJ
On the latter comparison, yes, they are barely comparable, but code just has such a beautiful, clean interface.
Thank you #elementary Devs :)
Alessandro Castellani—the developer behind the excellent Sequeler and Taxi apps—is building Akira, a native UI/UX design tool for elementary OS. Help him raise the funds necessary to hire on some stellar community developers and get the first release out! https://buff.ly/2FGHLMD
@cassidyjames oh my, is it that strong, or just 'to die for'?
Bet you can write some killer code after drinking that
Loving the update to the #elementary OS app center!
Is it alright to base #elementaryOS app icons off of those in the System?
