I’ve just created an official fediverse account for Geary announcements: @geary

Feel free to follow that if you're just looking for Geary news and not my cool links and commentary. ;)

Going to just leave this here, because frankly, everyone deserves to see this lovely bike.

The price of "It just works" is constant rebooting.

Hi all, Geary is looking for a co-maintainer!

@mjog doesn't have enough time to to do it all by themselves any more, and so is looking for a hand in taking care of day-to-day tasks such as bug triaging and fixing, and working on improving the front-end side of the app in particular.

If you're interested, take a look at the issue tracker, and pitch on in!

If you have any questions, please thread them below or get in touch with @mjog 👇

Cheers!

The concept I'm looking for is REST+HATEOAS, so I guess I'm looking for a Python/JS REST+HATEOAS framework. :)

Anyone have any recommendations for building a resource-oriented REST API in Python (preferably) or JS?

I'm not looking for something like Flask or FastAPI to build a REST-like API, I'm looking for actual REST - you know, where you do a `GET HTTP/1.1 /` and you get a list of links to valid sub-resources, and follow the links from there.

For what it's worth, here's a likely very incomplete THANKS file:

I for one look forward to ANZAC Day transitioning to being primarily a day for remembering to cook biscuits.

🎐🎐 Geary 40 has been released! 🎐🎐

This new feature release features substantial interfaces updates to support half-screen and phone displays, search engine updates, and many interface, performance, translation and server compatibility updates and fixes.

Available to download from Flathub right now, and your favourite distribution as it gets packaged.

Upgraded work laptop to Bug Sur, and its both gratifying to see Apple copying all of GNOME's interface features like headerbars and round windows, and horrifying because of the iPhone look-alike widget theme they started they started using. pretty sure there are better-done jobs on gnome-look.org.

tfw a debug symbol package that's "only" 80MB seems like a reasonable size…

@mjog True. 🙂 But, too, we are missing out on either culture or process to come to a consensus of what we use to replace these decades-old legacy. At this point, we're currently far off from what seems the strength of FLOSS (collaboration over competition). 😐

Why does Glade add `can_focus` to *every widget*? 🤔

I have to say that after having to use MacOS at work for the last four months, it makes GNOME on a decent distro look pretty good.

Every piece of electronics in your house has a cost, not just in currency but in blood. Often the blood of children. Sometimes the blood of slaves. Our appetite for cheap electronics subsidized by nightmarish misery and indignity is environmentally, financially and morally unsustainable, and it's shockingly easy to forget that. That's why I fix things, that's why I buy secondhand whenever I can, that's why I won't stop banging on about the evil idiocy of unleaded solder and planned obsolescence.

Lucky the commit bot is down so maybe no one will notice? 😅

The read danger with having commit rights to the mainline branch is that sometimes you do actually push commits to it. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Thinking about writing an ICU word segmentation dictionary for single and multi-byte emoticons… ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
