Working on a cool space project (launching soon! 🚀) and noticed that @elementary@twitter.com's file manager puts checkered backgrounds on transparent rocket images automatically! Nice touch.

Having a proper "perfer dark" preference is something we'd like, but doing that in a non-hacky way is a ton of work.

For example, you need to make it opt-in for apps, to avoid glitches like illegible text. You need to make sure non-GTK apps, websites, etc. can access the preference. You need tooling for developers to test with both dark and light, etc. etc.

Changing the system stylesheet is a hack, not a real solution and should definitely not be be exposed in system settings by default.

Repeat after me: Changing the system stylesheet is not "dark mode"

2019 was a big year for elementary. Read about what we accomplished, plus what we're up to in 2020! blog.elementary.io/our-2019-in

A file manager should be good at managing files, and increasingly people who care about files on elementary OS also care about version control. So it’s a good match!

@elementary@twitter.com gives me so much joy. Now I can easily see the git status of the files on a git repository. Features like this one is what makes elementary so nice to work with. Thanks a lot @CassidyJames@twitter.com for the suggestion and to those who worked on the PR. 😀

#introductions

Hello world! I've been a software developer for nearly a decade and I'm a huge proponent of FOSS.

My primary workstation OS is @elementary and I look forward to the day I can convert my gaming PC as well. Looking at you #destiny2.

Mastodon first impressions: I need to find some relevant follows. My subreddits took years to curate and I fear this may take nearly as long.
