Pop Shell — advanced tiling window management for #Pop_OS 20.04 — is now very close to completion.
As of today, the GNOME Shell extension has been fully converted to TypeScript to get all of those static type-checking guarantees. Requires TypeScript 3.7 at minimum.
- i3-like tiling window management mode
- Grid-snapping mode
- Inner and outer gaps
- Ability to disable title bars of server-side windows
- Drag & drop support
- Window focus nav & search
1st Semifinal of the 2nd Programming Language World Championships! #plwc2020
Python advanced to this round with wins over Object Pascal, Fortran and Lisp, while Rust battled it out against Julia, Ruby and C++.
Who will make it to the big final?
To all #Rust programmers on #Linux that want to use the kernel's new pidfd feature to asynchronously await on many child processes from the same thread -- reliably -- I've released the [pidfd] crate, which achieves precisely that.
Note, however, that Linux 5.3 is the minimum requirement to use this crate. Linux 5.4 is required to get the exit status from terminated processes (use the `waitid` feature).
Testing would be highly welcome!
This doesn't build yet, but it will be the first commit to replace gnome-shell's style code with Rust. Here, replace color parsing with rust-cssparser. Adds hsl() and spec-compliant parsing as a bonus.

With the new async / await syntax in #Rust, working with futures is easier than ever.
This weekend, I've spent some time rewriting my `async-fetcher` crate with the new syntax. The result is more features, and better performance, at a fraction of the original amount of code.
The new rewrite now supports execution on current-thread runtimes, with optional support for speeding up downloads by using multiple connections to download the same file from multiple URLs.
