This is your periodic reminder that you shouldn't write new code in a memory unsafe language. And please try to migrate old code to a memory safe language. ❤️

I'm currently working on a new version of the F-Droid Privileged Extension which will work on unrooted phones using Androids Device Owner mode. Requires adb though.

There'll probably also be a seperate version which uses a root install mode instead of requiring install as a system app.

…and the first user reported a bug caused by this. Should be easy to fix, though.

I just merged a huge pull request of mine. Still not sure how to feel about it. It's a refactoring that was desperately needed for years. I'm absolutely sure it will make things better in the future. But I'm also fairly certain I just introduced a handful of new bugs. YOLO? 🤷

Bugreports be like:

"There is a bug, can you give me an option to not have a bug?"

I usually like receiving bug reports from developers. They often know which technical information is important. When the app crashes, a stack trace is a very good starting point.

But please, PLEASE post it as text. Don't post a screenshot of the log window in your IDE. The issue tracker can deal with a couple of lines of text. It's not a social media site with a character limit 🤬

I only wanted to add a link to my Mastodon profile to my website. Ended up spending half the day updating to the latest version of beautiful-jekyll and Font Awesome.

This is my second attempt at using Mastodon. It doesn't look like the server hosting my first account (@cketti) is coming back 😞
