Holy smokes.

LibreOffice runs on the Librem 5!


Saving files, opening files, typing... the UI is a bit cramped (it's a desktop app on a phone)... but hot-diggity! It works!

Thinking about it, it seems weird to me using javascript to make common interface elements perform a task, like a button click.
Why would someone want the same technology that makes people run cryptominers in YOUR browser, be used to perform any functions on a website at all?

alright, today I had a great session trying to learn . It was a simple text based hangman game, but I tried to make some idiomatic rust code to solve it. It came out fairly well, but I have been informed that there is some room for improvement. Another day tomorrow!
