Hi everyone! My name is Chris. I develop apps for the GNOME desktop, and host social.libre.fi. I’m currently looking for full-time work so that I can pay essential things like food and rent. I would really appreciate any financial help you can spare.

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 @email@example.com? That would be nice

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 👍
Instead of the Tweetdeck-style interface, there's now a default single-column timeline which is much less scary.
(The multicolumn original is still an option in Settings, and those who currently use multicolumn will continue to see it by default.)

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”.
