I'm super excited about this announcement. I wanted this exact thing when we started up the Hub, but it wasn't available.

I distro-hopped to elementary OS and I'm using the Tootle client for Mastodon. Juno has a great collection of curated apps. I could get used to this. (I made some wallpaper. Where is a good place to upload so people can download them if they want?)

Did you know that Jakub Steiner has been hard at work designing a new GNOME icon them? Check it out!

The dark web is like dark matter, many people talk about it without really knowing what it is.

This is a super cool project and a testament to Rust’s versatility.

I actually can't wait to put this on a Pi.

Even though I think it's the best to be skeptical about the hardware for the actual phone, I have no doubt the software is going to be really fun to play around with.

My main issue with matrix right now is how much work is put on client developers.

Because synapse does so little, features are developed on Riot with no regard for clients. I see many possible issues arising through this.

As someone with limited design skills, I found this brief overview of color palette selection to be inspiring.

I've made a mock-up to illustrate my ideas about the next-gen terminal experience!

• the pathbar
• username, hostname and git branch displayed in the UI, shrinking the shell prompt back to just a $
• commands as cards
• syntax highlighting, including graying out the output a bit to differentiate it from commands themselves
• autocompletion (displayed in a native widget)
• built-in error handling options
• the time each command took (on the right)

All the widgets are interactive! You can click on the pathbar to `cd`, and the popovers on the bottom bar let you basically do `ssh`, `su` and `git checkout`; the git one additionally allows you to open the current repo in Gitg or in Builder.

Just wondering, is it more practical to use Docker for the services I self host rather than manually managing them myself?
