As I've had a few new followers, by way of #introduction:
- I'm a free and open source software developer
- I contribute to #gnome, typically in the core platform libraries
- I mostly toot about my History of the GNOME project podcast (every week, on Thursday) and about my #gundam plastic models
- I try to keep my software development ranting to the bird site, but it may end up spilling over here
Let's say this one more time together, #blacklivesmatter
As the release of GTK4 inches closer, one final item we're working on is WebKitGTK, and we can use your help! Learn how you can join us in building WebKitGTK for GTK4:
I'm going to add some more API and then publish it on crates.io once I get it in a reasonable state.
Been working on this for a bit, but I finally got it in a decent state this weekend: https://github.com/ebassi/xdg-mime-rs
Xdg-mime-rs is a Rust crate that loads and queries the shared-mime-info database; you can check what's the MIME type of a file based on its filename or its contents.

Seriously, it doesn't mean shit what system someone might be running. What difference would it make someone selling a different product than windows? (btw this wouldn't even matter cause its the OEM sales that are the revenue)
Stop with the damn preaching...

I've written a report on the #GTK hackfest held in Brussels at the end of January: https://blog.gtk.org/2020/02/17/gtk-hackfest-2020-roadmap-and-accessibility/
Lots of work to do on the #accessibility side, but we have a plan
I'm still looking for a stable job, programming related this time hopefully. I have some experience in writing desktop/web apps and open to learn new stuff.
In the meantime, if you enjoy the work I do and you would like to donate I would appreciate that a lot https://liberapay.com/bielmoussaoui :)
