1st day on Mastodon: hi everyone, I'm interested in art, architecture, and cat pics!! 😊

3rd day on Mastodon: gonna find bigfoot and fuck him

It's pretty cool that images can be created using pure implementation:

There are already many encoders and decoders to choose from. That looks healthier than VP8 and WebP, which (AFAIK) still have only one implementation after 10 years.

I've realized that I don't use any dependency injection in , and I don't miss it.

Cargo makes dependencies and workspaces so easy, that I break code up into small libraries instead. They are testable individually, and bigger things that would be unit tests with DI become more of integration tests instead.

Does anyone know what’s the exact formula for YCgCo color space in 8-bit bytes?

There are tons of them around, but they usually assume -1..1 range or produce 9/10-bit values. How am I supposed to fit that in a byte!?

If you're defining an alias for your crate's Result type, instead of:

type Result<T> = std::result::Result<T, MyError>;


type Result<T, E = MyError> = std::result::Result<T, E>;

This still works as `Result<()>`, but doesn't cause errors when someone accidentally shadows std's Result with it. It also makes Rustdoc display the error type explicitly in the documentation.
