I wrote about some of the ongoing GNOME Shell UX work: https://blogs.gnome.org/shell-dev/2020/06/19/gnome-shell-ux-bigger-picture
There's some very cool stuff cooking in GNOME Shell land, stay tuned!
➡️ My appeal to all beginners / newcomers:
Everyone starts small. Take small steps. It takes time to learn a completely new programming language / technology stack. If you stay motivated, you will be rewarded in the end. It is worth it. 😉
After that Gradio was getting more popular. More and more people began to use it daily. It was an incredible feeling as a beginner to know that your application is actually being used productively by people.
At some point a small test project became a useful application. As a beginner I was very suprised that the well known news site @omgubuntu made an article about Gradio:
At that time I was still an absolute beginner, and knew very little about programming. I used Gradio as a "project" to learn Vala. Over time, I have improved the source code over and over again, and added new features.
A bit history: I pushed the first Gradio commit to Launchpad in May 2016:
❗️Gradio is EOL. The required API servers will be shut down in August, so Gradio will no longer work.
❗️You should migrate to Shortwave NOW. Until the end of July it will be possible to migrate the data from Gradio to Shortwave.
RIP Gradio 🪦😢
Hey #Rust devs out there,
I'm looking for a library idea to work on for learning purposes
I'm open to any suggestions if I feel comfortable to try implementing them :)
Shortwave 1.1.0 is now available on #Flathub!
Made a little website showing off all the GNOME design tools ✨
So there is no database to retrieve elements from, and there is no API actually called, but at least all the plumbing is done!
This short video shows a simulation of Parcel handling the return call of an API for the tracking of three parcels.
Let's dig into the API calls now!
I have built a little Web site that makes removing the unnecessary apps permissions or long forgetten sessions a bit easier
It's built using Hugo and published with Github Pages. Feel free to contribute to it :)
I have released App Icon Preview 2.0.0, which consists mostly of a Vala -> Rust port along with a bunch of fixes! You can finally use it to create a nightly variant of any 128px SVG icon :)
