GitLab CE is a complete source management and CI/CD solution, available under the MIT license.

I started using hosted GitLab for all of my repositories when GitHub was acquired by Microsoft last year, and I've found it to be every bit as capable for all my SCM needs. GitLab also boasts a full-fledged deployment chain, which means I no longer need Travis CI or Docker Hub for building and deploying my software.


Finished making the core mechanics, rough placeholder art and deploy pipeline for my game, using GNU/Linux, Godot, Inkscape, GitLab and Docker.

Happy to finally release #GodotEngine 3.0 after 18 months of development by hundreds of contributors!

And kinda tired too, it's was a wild ride... But I'm so looking forward to stabler 3.x release cycles without a compatibility breakage in each PR :)

Come and meet the #GodotEngine community on 3-4 Feb 2018 at #FOSDEM and 5-6 Feb at our very own #GodotCon, both in Brussels 🇧🇪

It will be a great opportunity for Europeans to meet @reduz and discuss Godot 3 and beyond!

TeXstudio is one of many great editors for creating rich text documents with LaTeX.

TeX has been around for almost 40 years and is still one of the best tools for creating professional documents, reports and books. LaTeX provides an expressive syntax and packages for creating nice formatting, tables, math formulas, reference lists, and pretty much anything with very a few sprinkles of inline code.

The #GodotEngine already changed my life so much, so many new friends I made, so much I learned!

I am extremely lucky to have experienced all the nice moments with developers as well as devs and other people simply curious about the engine!

If you like the work I did so far, I would be really thankful if you enable me to help out the project even more!

Either way, I can't wait for the years to come for this project! :)

I'll be at the #Capitole du Libre in Toulouse, France this week-end, together with #GDquest, @StraToN and @groud!

Meet us at our stand to discuss and play games, and don't miss the Godot-made presentation and the #workshop! Of course focusing on #GodotEngine 3.0 :)

Looks like an improved debugger with remote tree view and edit will make it for #GodotEngine 3.0 beta right before the feature freeze :) #FOSS

Hello #Mastodon! 🍍

You and your friends need to know about this amazing #libre game engine 🎮, so watch, boost and spread the word! 🗣

🎨 maybe you create art, photography, design, using software like #krita #gimp #ardour #blender, #darktable, #mypaint #inkscape

🎼 ...and music using #ardour #lmms #kxstudio #hydrogen #puredata or distros like #ubuntustudio

📝 ...or when writing stories your tools to go are #plume #libreoffice or #zim

📽 Maybe you make films and animation with #kdenlive #pitivi #synfig

🎮 ...or make games with #godot or #twine

🛠 You might be using tools like #robocut #openCAD #processing or #arduino to create your art or design of any form

🎪 or simply creating art using traditional mediums, doing work in performance art, circus arts or theatre, using any of the above or others to create or document your work.

are you an artist or creative in the most generic sense of the word, and use #FOSS / #FLOSS / #OpenSource software as part of your workflow?

consider tagging your works with
🐧 #artWithOpenSource tag and check out the tag for works by your fellow mastodon artists who also prefer Open Sourced alternatives.

(sibling tags of interest: #linuxartists #flossart #libreMonday and #creativeCommons )

If you want Mastodon to be less toxic (the Internet in general is toxic in my experience and every space eventually becomes just like the rest of the Internet)

It starts with you.

Don't start shit.

Don't go on witch hunts. Don't feed into witch hunts even if you agree with the reason. One person's witch hunt is another person's victimisation.

If you see bullshit, don't feed into it.

If you have something to add, CW it.

If it bothers you, don't click through a discourse CW.

A lot of the software used by public institutions is proprietary. This means that the public - including you - is financing software that cannot be modified, studied, shared, or improved.

How can we put our trust in public bodies if they don't have full control over the software they are using?

Shouldn't your money be used to develop software that benefits you and other citizens?

If you think it should, join the #publiccode campaign.

software became very common. Meanwhile patents are still used to gain more control over our basic needs such as .

There's an initative in wanting to change that:

- Fight market concentration in the seed sector
- Promote food security through diversity
- Restore crop seeds as
- Seed must be utilised freely
- Use open-source licensing against patents and variety protection

Kids and Linux/Opensource , all my kids use Arch Linux ( 8yrs, 12yrs and 16yrs)

my 8 yr old likes using GIMP , my 12 yr old daughter uses Krita - was interviewed earlier in teh year

My eldest has a youtube channel and uses kdenlive to edit his videos.

they all prefer their home PC's Operating System and software over using the Windows PC's they use at school

I hope they continue to use and enjoy.

Almost forgot my #LibreMonday :)

#CuteMarkEd is a lightweight, cross-platform #Markdown editor with HTML preview.

I use it every now and then when #nano is not enough for a quick edit of a .md file :)

I use Wallabag every day, but I don't think I posted about it yet. (I'm a bookmark hoarder.)

Wallabag makes it convenient to bookmark and tag web content on multiple devices and browsers, can be used to keep track of reading and integrates nicely with RSS readers. The backend can be set up on your own server, but there's also an affordable paid hosting option for those who prefer that.


Last Wednesday I thought of a project I wanted to highlight for this week's . Can't for the life of me remember what it was now though. :/

Fortunately, it's possible to do very gentle anti-racist interventions that won't cause a scene (or make your racist relative defensive, which is also not helpful). The SPLC has a guide:

You can be very subtle and still be effective. This is a way to address bigotry in a quiet, non-confrontational, but effective manner. Now is the time to start on this.

#imageMagick [] is the other CLI tool I use regularly. It has many image modification features: resizing, converting between file types, color management, creating gifs and even drawing.

I use imageMagick for averaging already aligned images and occasionally scaling them when creating the super-resolution images. (Another advantage to imageMagick is that you can turn an operation with exact settings into a script - or at least a copy-pastable command that is somewhere in your notes). :)
