If you want to give Rust & GTK a try, here's a simple template boilerplate for you. Bonus: it uses Meson to build the application, Flatpak to bundle it and has a Gitlab CI to create nightlies for you and a bunch of nice stuff.


@Tusky any chance to support clicking on @username@twitter.com? That would be nice

With my new XPS 13 I'm one of the few people in GNOME with a touchscreen. It's funny that people say that GNOME was designed for touchscreens even though so few of us can even test with touchscreens

Woo! As you may have seen from that previous boost, Mastodon 2.9 is now out, featuring a new single column interface:


This is, IMHO, a huge step forward for getting non-technical people onto Mastodon 👍

New blog post up, where I go over how I frame a platform and what it means to be a platform on the “Linux desktop”.
