Did you already see the insanely beautiful Map of the #SolarSystem by Eleanor Lutz? 🌌

She published the #python code and a tutorial on how she made it. ❤️

@Bubu Still quoting @grote:

E.g. you leave the group with device A and communicate this to a subset of your contacts. Then you write a couple of messages in the very same group with device B and sync this to another subset of contacts (which might overlap with the first one). How should your contacts deal with you leaving the group, but still writing in it?

@Bubu Good question! Quoting @grote from their dev chat:

No and real support would be very tricky to implement.

The reason is that different devices might do conflicting actions while they are offline and we wouldn't know how to combine their conflicting actions when they come online.

In the recent months I've worked on a desktop version of . This is my first demo video showing the progress I've made so far:

Wahlschlappe nach Rezo-Clip: CDU-Chefin erwägt Regeln für Meinungsäußerungen

Kritiker sollen vor der Wahl gefälligst die Klappe halten, meint AKK. Und unterstreicht damit erneut: #NieWiederCDU !

@bilelmoussaoui السلام عليك بلال! شكرا جزيلا
for your offer to help, that's really nice! Sadly, because of other priorities I had to extremely lower my time spent on learning Arabic, but I'm still motivated to proceed in the near future. After learning the script, basic grammar and first sentences, I'm even more astonished by the (logical) beauty of your mother tongue. I'll make sure to come back to you.
ما سلام!

ICANN granted the domain '.amazon' today, rather than the entire geographic region of the Amazon Basin.

Acts like this are colonial, obviously, but also a slap in the face to early internet promises of global representation + shared power. Its really sad.

We've got big news.

After months of work, Tor Browser is now stable on Android.

Tor Browser 8.5 brings the highest degree of privacy and censorship-circumvention available to Android users.

@bilelmoussaoui The problem I struggle the most with currently is with all the different widgets. In e.g. your article, how did you come up with `GtkListBox`? Experience? Glade? Some awesome documentation I've missed?

I'm working on a GTK version of , a P2P messenger, and therefore plan to read Fractal's code in future. But your article helped me again because I will now build my contact list and conversation view prototypes with `GtkListBox`, I think.

@bilelmoussaoui Really nice article! Thanks for writing it!

I've started programming with GTK 3 months ago and it's good to read about the basics again. It would have been great to read your article back then because now I've read a loooot of documentations, code examples and actual code (mostly Lollypop by @gnumdk, great work!).

Always wanted to create a Gtk Application using Python, build it using Meson, package it as a Flatpak and submit to Flathub?
Here's the first tutorial for you
We will be building a Todo application. Feedback is appreciated!

Oh hey, I should post this here too! I made a CSS-only async chat by using background-image requests to send data and long-running http requests to return it.

Here’s a bootleg recording* of my talk from Europacamp in Hamburg last week:

Shot on a mobile phone thanks to Mirjam Buettner’s tireless arms.
