Fun fact: I wrote 9 GTK apps, 1 using Python & 8 using Rust!!!!!!!

Finally got around to writing the second half of the LAS talk @alatiera and I gave in November: blogs.gnome.org/tbernard/2020/

tl;dr: We can't have a "Linux" platform, but GNOME, KDE, etc. can be platforms.

We could do that by going around the distributions, by having distributions work together, or both, but the status quo is *not* working and we badly need vertical integration.

elementary has proven it's possible, we just need everyone else to learn that lesson :)

Icon Library has a new export dialogue that should give you enough docs on how to use GResource to bundle your icons.

@haeckerfelix & I have just released gtk-macros, a small crate that gives you a bunch of macros to make GTK & Rust a pleasant experience.

Shortwave is a client to listen to internet radios, with a database over 25k radios. It is about to ship its first stable version!

How does it look like on mobile? Gorgeous already. Thanks a lot for the app @haeckerfelix!

Today a client asked me if I can turn the website I made for them into an iOS/Android app. I was thinking of using ionic because that's what I'm familiar the most with. But they wanted that in two weeks.

Someone today published their Rust app on Flathub following this guide :P I guess, it was worth it after all :)

Why I keep putting a cup of water around my desk.

HdyDeck aka a GtkStack replacement with swipe gestures and better transitions has just been merged into libhandy master. :)

The other day I released a new version of Nostalgia, including a wallpaper from the future! ✨

If you want to get @jimmac's awesome GNOME 3.36 wallpaper a month or so in advance, get Nostalgia from Flathub:

I have released a new version of Icon Library & Contrast.

It's mostly a code cleaning release & Icon Library features more icons by the GNOME design team. Enjoy!

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!
