We released gum yesterday, which lets you enhance your shell scripts with a user-friendly TUI, complete with dialogs, prompts, lists, and selections.
if you're into scripting or crafting immensely powerful shell one-liners, you should honestly check out the README, there are a ton of amazing examples:
I have a public build of Tangerine on itch now if anyone is interested. Currently only the Windows build is available. This also is Lua-only at the moment.
Hey folks working on #Fediverse projects like #Mastodon, #PixelFed, #WriteAs: I'm a writer who's spent 20 years writing blog posts, documentation, product copy, social media, and a little UX writing for a variety of orgs large and small.
Recent work involves the Bear notes app, previously: 1Password.
I can't contribute as a dev, but I can definitely help write, edit, or just polish your user-facing comms.
Can anyone help get this in front of relevant folks? Or point out how I can reach them?
Given the production values, I’m assuming they’re VC-funded but, regardless, @charm are doing some really interesting work in command-line apps via ssh (and all their stuff is open source).
Take the VC/corporate focus away for a second and their approach is actually very similar to that of the small web (https://ar.al/2020/08/07/what-is-the-small-web/), only on the command-line and with ssh.
Lots to learn from their approach for making traditionally complicated things easier to use.
I just noticed "foreach" on npm is controlled by a single maintainer.
I also noticed they let their personal email domain expire, so I bought it before someone else did.
I now control "foreach" on NPM, and the 36826 projects that depend on it.
i used an iphone for the first time in like 5+ years last night and i felt like i'm a million years old. what happened to the big button you push to go back to the home screen. the person whose phone it was told me their password and i still could not figure out how to unlock it. i am a professional computer pervert and i was reduced to cinders at the hands of apple UX
An appeal for help:
Trunk is an opt-in directory of people on Mastodon and the Fediverse looking for followers, organised into a large range of topics:
Anyone can ask to be added, and the admins of Trunk check the account (to screen out spam etc) and add them.
However, due to the need to check the contents of accounts, this Trunk only includes people who post mainly in English. It means they have to turn away a lot of non-English accounts.
The Trunk admins want to fix this situation.
Do you use a language other than English? Do you want to help make a version of Trunk in your own language?
The English Trunk admins can help you with the technical side, but they need people who speak other languages to moderate Trunks in those other languages.
➡️ Can you help? If so, get in touch with @kensanata who leads the Trunk project.
(There is a Spanish Trunk at https://trunkesp.chilemasto.casa but so far no other languages.)
Today @conservancy announces a new initiative to accept copyright assignment from ANYONE producing copyleft software.
Another tip: Every Mastodon account has RSS built in. Just add .rss to the end of the URL for your account, e.g. email@example.com
That lets people follow your public posts from an RSS reader, but it's also useful if you wanted to use IFTTT to crosspost your public posts to another platform.
