I needed to scan and submit a calculus quiz today. It was really easy to set up my printer on #Manjaro -- HP printer tools are preinstalled, and GNOME's Document Scanner app was really easy to use. Many thanks to the people who make all this possible!
Just won my first game of GNOME 2048 on the #PinePhone. It works great!
If I missed anything (and I'm sure I did), comment below!
If you enjoy researching new topics and writing about them, there's always Wikipedia. People often say Wikipedia is bad because anyone can edit it. On the contrary, I think that's what makes it good, and you can make it even better.
Writing software isn't about being good at a language. It's about using computers to solve problems, and there's no one-size-fits-all solution to the problems we need to solve.
GDScript is the same. It's a scripting language purpose-made for Godot Engine games. I think it's very good at what it does--integrating with the engine so you can prototype very quickly.
Vala is a language I really like, but I wouldn't use it outside the GNOME stack because that's what it's intended for and built around.
Python, for example, is great for scripts and small programs that won't need much maintenance. It's fast to write but can be a pain when your program gets bigger.
The Hourglass team wants your feedback! We're making a project manager for #GodotEngine. What features do you want to see in Hourglass? What do you think of our new mockups?
Hourglass, my project/version manager for #GodotEngine, has been updated!
- You can "favorite" projects so they show up at the top of the list
- You can now sort your projects by engine version
- Version search is no longer case sensitive
- The version list is sorted now
- Fixed a crash when creating a new project with a custom version
Also, huge thanks to reddit user u/BlueCannonBall for the icon!
