libshumate's vector tile renderer now supports labels! https://www.jwestman.net/2022/06/18/labelling-maps-is-surprisingly-hard.html
Gonna need to reschedule the stream, unfortunately. I'll try for Monday at 6pm UTC.
Now that finals are over, it's time for another coding stream! Join me this Friday, June 3, at 6pm UTC as I add icon and texture support to libshumate's new vector tile renderer.
@cassidyjames I like causal loops, like in Harry Potter. They make absolutely no "scientific" sense but they're so much fun! And they're easy to wrap your mind around.
@sonny @zbrown In my experience the GNOME ecosystem, with its tightly integrated platform and years-long, strict API stability, has *really* spoiled me. Any time I use React or Angular or something, I'm flabbergasted that the most basic things aren't part of the framework, but there's half a dozen unofficial packages (in various states of maintenance) that do it, and more concerning, *everyone seems to think this is acceptable or even a good thing*.
@cassidyjames Ha, I just type "t"+Enter. Good thing most of the websites I visit don't start with the same letters.
Someone asked me this recently, so I wrote a short explainer.
If cryptocurrency is supposed to be based on "unbreakable" cryptography, what are some of the ways it's been getting hacked?
@cassidyjames I never used that tab anyway. In fact it's nearly irrelevant to me that I'm on Fosstodon, because everything is federated so seamlessly.
GNOME developer working mostly on blueprint-compiler, Maps, and libshumate.
Fosstodon is an English speaking Mastodon instance that is open to anyone who is interested in technology; particularly free & open source software.
