A maintainers job is not to write software for you or your community just because you make a feature request. A maintainers job is to code-review, merge patches, and guide community contributions.
Development is a requirement insomuch as to facilitate more of that.
I wish "git push --atomic" was the default when more than one ref is specified.
Pushed some code today that makes Builder restore your open documents while preserving the document layout (splits and what not).
Trying to find a new place to live in Portland is pretty laborious when you need space for music gear, office, and pet friendly.
Made some improvements to Dazzle's suggestion entry today so that it feels more natural as a web browser entry. Coming to an Epiphany browser near you soon.
I brought a bunch of Habanero to my girlfriend's mother. I left with home-made hot sauce.
This is definitely love.
My life has gotten immeasurably better as I reduce social media from it.
My mom's long-term partner owns a plastics mold business. This Target semi truck drove through it this morning. He's the only employee, scary truck factor of 1.
Repeat after me: "I am not my code"
4 years ago this week I announced in Strasbourg that I was quitting my job to prototype @GNOME Builder.
Best and most scary decision of my life thus far.
NixOS packaging for GNOME Builder Show more
Today's accomplishment: I got to see @hergertme's Builder run for the first time! Previously I tried using the flatpak, but I guess that requires a system service, which is a pain. So I've spent a couple days struggling to get it packaged in nixpkgs instead.
Tomorrow, hopefully I just need to figure out why g-ir-scanner is putting the wrong path to libide.so in the generated .gir file. (It's missing the gnome-builder subdirectory in lib.)

Embed a WebKit view in a popover? Why not!
A major downside to GNOME being an OS upstream is that we almost never get the credit for the insane amount of work/plumbing/integration/turn-key work we do.
Truly a bummer.
I'm going to write a lot more about this in the coming days but the most important takeaway from my first few days of switching my main development machine to Linux (Pop!_OS 18.04)?
I. Do. Not. Miss. The. Mac. One. Bit.
Everything Just Works (tm), including my USB-C-only LG external monitor (which doesn't even work with Laura's older MacBook Pro), Magic Trackpad, etc. And there are things I actually enjoy more about the experience. Never thought I'd be writing this about Linux. Exciting times!
