Alex @alexjgriffith

@johnson @h_d Now time to get notifications and user profiles working with the new time line functions!

Alex boosted

The big mastodon.el refactor is in develop. Big shoutouts to @alexjgriffith and @h_d for all of their hard work. Expect v0.7.0 by the end of today.

This big bottleneck should allow us to add notifications, favourites, and profiles rather quickly.

Riot.im is awesome but the client uses Google Analytics.

If you are using the web client opt for disroot.org/.

I've opened an issue for the #Android client on F-Droid's repo: gitlab.com/fdroid/fdroiddata/i

For desktop client, best check your distribution; ArchLinux's AUR package patches it for example (it's how I found out).

#matrix #riot #privacy

Namespaces, how I missed you!

The "organic, all natural, GMO-free" movement sorta pisses me off and in my opinion displays a degree of ignorance.

The mastodon.el v0.6.3 release has been tagged and pushed. It should be available on MELPA-stable in ~2 hours.

@johnson @PinkCathodeCat customizable faces are now on the development branch. Thanks for the heads up in the mouse face warning. I think I know where it is comming from.

@clarkenciel unfortunately not, though on my mac i just use searchlight, find emacs, and it reopens the current session

@clarkenciel this happens to me at least once a day. Thank god for `fg`!!

@PinkCathodeCat @johnson Currently it uses 'highlight as its face

@h_d the longer i looked at it the more depressing I found it!

@PinkCathodeCat @johnson currently the faces are not customizable, but we could look into making them so.

@h_d how I wish I could unsee what I have just seen! How do you come across something as jarring as this?

I think I've overdone my exposure for the week. Starting to have nightmares where the antagonist is always insisting that what I am trying to insert is not a string and that my mode-line looks aweful.

I'm rewatching the Harry Potter movies and here's a couple thoughts:

Nerdwriter is right, Prisoner of Azkaban is the best of the movies

Harry James Evans-Verres Potter is a better character than Harry Potter, canon Harry is pretty dumb and hard to watch. Also, wtf is Hermione doing in Gryffindor. What's the reason for Ravenclaw house to exist if Hermione is not in it?

One of the reasons I like HPMOR more than canon is because the characters' awesomeness potential is actually used

@NicolasPetton for your next blog post can you detail how you made your mode-line look awesome?

Alex boosted

Kinda tempts me to try emacs... emacs.sexy/ Especially with all the work @johnson has been doing with the emacs mastodon client...

@clarkenciel I put a box around mine and make it the same colour as the mode-line background.

(set-face-attribute
'mode-line nil
:box '(:line-width 3 :color (face-background 'mode-line)))

(set-face-attribute
'mode-line-inactive nil
:box '(:line-width 3 :color (face-background 'mode-line-inactive)))

Note that this will look weird if you are using overlines / underlines in your mode line

@NicolasPetton Where did you find the icons for your modeline?

@johnson dash.el is a massive library. It would be nice to use some of its functionality elsewhere, but I don't see how it helps with the keybinding / endpoint issue.
