Hi fediverse! Boosts appreciated on this one.
I’m part of a co-op building a platform for artists to sell art without getting exploited. I’ve been working on it for a while but there’s a lot of work to do and I could use some help. A ton of the main features are in place, but there’s still some big gaps and a lot of polish left before it can launch.
The platform is fully open source and developed in the open. It’s built on Phoenix/Elixir and Tailwindcss. Our co-op is already incorporated and established and it’s open to members that want to actually commit but you don’t need to be a member to contribute or help.
Does this sound interesting? I’d love some help! I’m also happy to answer questions. And no, you don’t need to know Elixir already. It’s pretty easy to learn for the things you’d be using it for. Even some design help would be welcome. Feel free to reply here or DM me!
As of nushell 0.62.0, if you get a `nu::shell` error, you'll get a link you can click (first image).
If you click on that link, it'll take you straight to the docs (in docs.rs!) for that error (second image), with a handy "Resolution" section!
Yay miette! #rust
Oh rad - got vlc remote up and running. I can drive everything from my phone now.
Now to load it up :D
In light of recent news and an increased interest in alternatives, I've updated my Mastodon Quickstart Guide with the latest info on apps and such.

Wow I haven't been on here in ages.
What are some fun #rustlang projects folks are working on these days?
Holy crap. Malware hidden in a strand of DNA hijacks the computer that analyzes that particular gene sequence.
We're going to live in a very weird world man.

@jntrnr I don't know. I certainly hope so!
We have a few very cool, very new apps in Rust for GNOME, and for example GStreamer (used *everywhere*) is being Rustified. Hopefully those will set a good example.
We are definitely understaffed for the platform libraries, though. I hope to convince people, even new contributors, that it's totally worthwhile to revitalize under-maintained C code with #rustlang.
