I haven't looked at rendering fonts yet, but Lettercase can handle your local fonts library and install new ones from Google Fonts.

If anyone have any interesting reads about font rendering feel free to throw that my way, thanks!

I've written a report on the #GTK hackfest held in Brussels at the end of January: blog.gtk.org/2020/02/17/gtk-ha

Lots of work to do on the #accessibility side, but we have a plan

I'm still looking for a stable job, programming related this time hopefully. I have some experience in writing desktop/web apps and open to learn new stuff.

In the meantime, if you enjoy the work I do and you would like to donate I would appreciate that a lot liberapay.com/bielmoussaoui :)

Imho, this one of my apps that I really like, but I know the image previewer isn't great and gegl bindings are a mess to generate :( still, it does a pretty good job for fast CTRL + SHIFT + SCREEN & CTRL + V on the app to just obfuscate parts of the selected screenshot

Playing with the new, adaptive version of Clocks, which is really coming together.

Kudos to Allan Day and @snwh for the design, and @bilelmoussaoui and Zander Brown for making it happen!

I finally got the time to finish the most basic things I wanted in Read It Later, my @wallabag client and released it today!
You can read a bit about it here belmoussaoui.com/2020/02/04/re

I was a bit bored last night and I wrote a simple React app to help you generate metainfo files. It doesn't support all the possible tags yet, but PR are welcome :)

You can also use it as an example if you wanted to auto-deploy your web app using Github pages


You can see the latest graph I tooted 3 months ago from here to get an idea of how things progressed so far mstdn.fr/@bilelmoussaoui/10295

I have been migrating some apps to newer runtimes recently and I'm very happy with the progress the Flatpak/Flathub community has managed to do in 3 months

Loving Authenticator by @bilelmoussaoui


Gotta love this kind of focused and well designed apps that make #gnome great.

I knew the @gnome community was very welcoming, and @bilelmoussaoui just proved it!

He kindly guided me through the errors I faced when trying to build his GTK @wallabag client, and as a result I've been able to create a (very small) merge request so others can benefit from it.

Thanks Bilal!


Working on a new icon for App Icon Preview, using App Icon Preview :P

Iterating on this with @jimmac and @snwh is a ton of fun!

It is now done, use the libhandy-0-0 branch until the new version is ready. For GNOME 3.36, we recommend using the 0.0 branch, libhandy 1 will be available for GNOME 3.38.
