In my GTK travels last night I also discovered the broadway GTK backend. It renders GTK apps via a server in the browser. Here it is showing a quite responsive and faithful rendition of gedit. For more info check out the main developers blog: blogs.gnome.org/alexl/

Commentary from GitHub’s Semantic project on why they use Haskell. I liked the part pictured — it’s a pretty compelling sales pitch. github.com/github/semantic/blo

Apple to stop shipping Ruby, Python, and Perl in future releases. “Future versions of macOS won’t include scripting language runtimes by default”. Native binaries FTW 😉 developer.apple.com/documentat

It's been more than two years since my move away from Mac OS. Time for another blog post. This one covers moving on from desktop FreeBSD and finding a tiling window manager bitcannon.net/post/two-years-o

"hikari is a stacking window manager with additional tiling capabilities, it is heavily inspired by the Calm Window manager (cwm(1)). Its core concepts are windows, groups, sheets and the workspace." — by @raichoo hub.darcs.net/raichoo/hikari

Continuing the c2rust adventures. This morning I converted the dunst notification daemon.

Here it is with Neovim in alacritty, editing the heinous source.

dwm (dynamic window manager dwm.suckless.org/) converted from C to (unsafe) Rust with c2rust running in Xephyr

Maybe more Medium articles should have a gopher version. (Second screenshot is lynx running in iSH on iPhone)

hunter is a fast and lag-free file browser/manager for the terminal written in Rust. It features a heavily asychronous and multi-threaded design and all disk IO happens off the main thread in a non-blocking fashion, so that hunter will always stay responsive. github.com/rabite0/hunter

Here is a simple hello example. For my larger project, the reason for doing this, it's still failing to compile one crate that has some C code in it. Need to convince it to use the cross compiler.
