Which leads me to think that perhaps there should be a portal for thumbnailers, since there are not a few applications that would benefit from this. It would also help Totem to be a Flatpak, and therefore be easily replaceable by any other application if the user doesn't like it.

Then apps like Totem or Evince must clearly come as "part of the system", since otherwise a valuable functionality is lost: the thumbnailer

At first I thought that all the apps that were pre-installed in the GNOME OS image would be the ones that should come as part of the system, but then apps like Boxes work better in Flatpak than as "part of the system".

Can someone point me out which GNOME apps are supposed to come as part of the system instead of Flatpak? ๐Ÿค”

I'm testing a Fedora 33 Beta live... And it works better than my Fedora 33 Beta installation

@bilelmoussaoui Just going to see if I can update all the gnome games. Right now I'm with Nibbles

Oh, 'cause Fedora Flatpak repo has the 3.38.0 version, and Flathub has the 3.36.0

Well, let's see if we can contribute to update it on Flathub :D

Just wondering... Why Fedora Flatpak repo has the cool icon and Flathub has the old icon?

@glimpse Why not just "Glimpse"? "Glimpse Image Editor" is too long and gets cropped on GNOME

aaaaaa I've to reorganize my app grid but I'm too lazy right now ๐Ÿ˜ซ

Just to clarify in case someone misunderstood... The app isn't mine, it's developed by gl-lom, Mufeed Ali and Rafael Mardojai ๐Ÿ˜…

I just shared that it was already available on Flathub, since Rafael only shared this on birdsite

(I'm dying inside)

@brainblasted I think that Solanum would be cool with a circular window, don't you think? ๐Ÿ˜œ

Progress report for Replay! Working again on UTLib, the YouTube Data API client library for Vala that I'm developing in order to provide the YouTube backend to my app.

There's a lot of things that are just, fine, things that I want to change and things that I need to document ๐Ÿ˜…

Maybe in a few days I would be able to update the repo :)

Vala needs better support for JSON. JSON-GLib isn't really enough, since it doesn't have support for Gee collections, and its syntax is quite complicated to use.

I found GJson, a JSON library for Vala with support for Gee collections, but its quality still has a lot of room for improvement, and its license isn't very friendly to closed source projects

I'm thinking more and more we should handle window buttons similarly to how macOS does it rather than having them be a part of headerbar:

* Window controls are a part of the window, overlaid atop content
* Window has API for querying window controls size and position
* Header bars don't have window controls and instead have padding there
* During leaflet child transitions, header bars just keep their padding
* During mode transitions, they animate padding from 0 to the window button size
