I needed a nice screenshot of #GodotEngine for a #Linux #AppStream file...

Thankfully I had a great demo by @fracteed@birdsite lying around ^_^

i would recommend using xmpp, there are some nice android clients as well such as:
f-droid.org/packages/eu.siacs.
its very minimal, only like ~5 mb, works well, doesnt use up many resources and fully open source :)

I'm working on an free software decision making tool. The first prototype can already be tested out!
ukuvota.world/

!!disclaimer: data is not yet secure, use at your own risk!!

"Ukuvota is a voting tool for decision making processes to become easier and quicker, this tool uses weighted score voting with consensus logic to create a strategic method of finding the best decision with a low resistance!"

Front-end: #quasar / #vuejs
Back-end: #pouchdb

[short version] 🙃

are you an artist or creative in the most generic sense of the word, and use #FOSS / #FLOSS / #OpenSource software as part of your workflow?

consider tagging your works with

🐧 #artWithOpenSource

tag and check out the tag for works by your fellow mastodon artists who also prefer Open Sourced alternatives.

🎨 maybe you create art, photography, design, using software like #krita #gimp #ardour #blender, #darktable, #mypaint #inkscape

🎼 ...and music using #ardour #lmms #kxstudio #hydrogen #puredata or distros like #ubuntustudio

📝 ...or when writing stories your tools to go are #plume #libreoffice or #zim

📽 Maybe you make films and animation with #kdenlive #pitivi #synfig

🎮 ...or make games with #godot or #twine

🛠 You might be using tools like #robocut #openCAD #processing or #arduino to create your art or design of any form

🎪 or simply creating art using traditional mediums, doing work in performance art, circus arts or theatre, using any of the above or others to create or document your work.

I just realised it's been 2 years since I switched to #Linux as my main OS.

Even though I'm party a graphic/web designer, I booted in those damned Windows around 20x since then (and hated every second of it, heh).

Cheers to #FOSS, you're my love. And a special shout out to #Manjaro and #Gnome.

@breebump you'll be able to find like-minded people w the hashtags of #gimp #krita (the other #foss #floss illustration tool) as well as #ArtWithOpensource

Making some progress on the skunkworks project.

I didn't want to use Google Maps but I couldn't figure out an alternative in the 30 minutes I had to put that part together :)

Let me know if you have a #FOSS option. social.coop/media/_6SboNuoKkhv

@oxenfree quality costs money time is also money quality takes time in other words people tend to spend time on other more fun parts of the application and often solve the core problem quite well, but UI/UX are tedious AF sometimes and don't seem to be what the community is into a lot of the time @Gargron is actually an exception here because his main contribution was UX and it made a huge difference apple puts in the time, and bills for it we need to put in the time to help each other out

Commit messages are not comments.

When you're writing a commit message and find yourself describing what the code does, instead of describing the change you made and the reason for it, that's a good sign the stuff you're writing should be in a comment near the code it describes.

Every year, students from all over the world contribute to KDE through Google Summer of Code project, which motivates young developers to join #FOSS organizations. With the help of their mentors, students develop and implement features that make KDE software better.

With the final evaluation period complete, we congratulate all our students who passed, and thank everyone for participating! And if you want to know what our students did this summer, here's a recap: dot.kde.org/2017/09/04/kde-and

@kensanata i've also noticed an increasingly unpleasant trend in so-called #FOSS (esp VOIP) when people ask for assistance for a slightly specialist feature or enhancement for them to be directed to "paid support communities" or "corporate builds" rather than at least shown the solution (where they can decide if they want to try and implement it themselves using existing functionality; which is often quite possible with just a slight extra bit of effort required..

@EdwardTorvalds You will have to follow more... at leas 100-150 if expect to have an active feed. You can search hashtags like #linux #fss #foss #archlinux e.t.c.. and add people like hell. The creator of Mastodon @Gargron is a good follow and @bbc too.

Wow look at that sky!

Tail end of the LGM2014 photowalk - a stop to see JS Bach (yes, that Bach).

Developed in RawTherapee (even though I was surrounded by darktable nerds!), and into GIMP.
