Someone made a great tool for generating emacs config. Might be helpful for new emacs users.

#emacs #gnu

Install full Haskell development environment on Android phone

(updated instructions; now using only Termux proot-distro).

@Ninjatrappeur hmm, the webpage works for me on #Fennec.

On that topic, I've been playing with the #Haskell static website generator #Ema lately, it's only using a big #TailwindCSS v2 #CSS file for the ghcid-based development version and prefers for generating the final small #CSS file containing only what's used by the #HTML files of the static version.
#Ema's author has made a #Nix package for the #WindiCSS compiler here:

Just read on the interwebs: "The Amazonka team is happy to announce the availability of the first release candidate for the upcoming 2.0.0 release."

Haskell development environment on Android phone

Install a full Haskell development environment (including hpack and cabal) on your Android phone. The command prompt runs via AnLinux + Termux.

Looking to migrate away from Google but still looking for free/affordable replacements without the hassle of hosting them yourself?

There are many choices, take your pick:)

Feel free to add to this list if I've missed any good ones:)

@distrotube Fun that you looked into #nixos! 😀

I'm a huge NixOS fan, been using it as my primary systems for a bunch of years.

Some tips:

Searching for packages:
$ nix search xkill

Finding options to set in configuration.nix:
$ man configuration.nix

GitHub has removed the ability to access youtube-dl's source code due to a DMCA request by the RIAA

... The clear purpose of this source code is to (i) circumvent the technological protection measures used by authorized streaming services such as YouTube, and (ii) reproduce and distribute music videos and sound recordings owned by our member companies without authorization for such use. We note that the source code is described on GitHub as “a command-line program to download videos from and a few more sites.” ...

Censorship, propaganda, surveillance, and targeted manipulation are inherent characteristics of monopoly:

Remember that the RIAA is a bad-publicity-deflection cartel of its major members. These are:

All source code of abandoned software should be open sourced. Manufacturers should be forced to do so on the end of service date.

Microsoft will adopt Google Chrome's controversial Manifest V3 (ad-friendly tweaks) in Edge. This kind of thing is precisely why we need to have more than a single browser engine implementation, and why Firefox is more important than ever.

When I moved away from Scala and got into Haskell, I couldn't believe how much easier Haskell makes programming for me thanks to its type system. This shift opened a whole new world for me.

Now I'm experiencing the same, but within #Haskell: seeing how #Yesod fails to utilize the type system, which leads to opaque and repetitve code in programming a #web #api, whereas #Servant provides structure, clarity, documentation and other via types.

Types for the win!
