Whenever I have to deal with on devices that formerly ran android I realize how super simple things like flashing and debugging are on the compared to that.

No odd partition schemes, no super sensitive boot loader that gives up on the first glitch. Just and if all else fails .

I needed bindings for an app to interact with to submit feedback. Here's the generated bindings for libfeedback in case someone else needs it too:


I remember how nervous I was when (in early 2020) I went to the post office with my 📱 to drop off a 📦 and present the barcode on the phone. (Having previously scp'ed the pdf to the phone to show it in evince).

Would the 🔋 last? Would it overheat? Would the display stack hold? It worked.

Nowadays I don't spend a thought: Fill in the data on my laptop, save the pdf, have it synced automatically via to 's ticket-box folder and show it at the counter. ✅

I've tagged a new release of mobile-broadband-provider-info:


It has updated providers, support for mms attachment size and we switched the build system to meson.

Laptop died yesterday but thanks to the , the Baseus Dock, an HDMI Screen, a USB keyboard and 's docked mode I have access to most of the things via my phone.

helps a lot as that means I have my ssh keys available by just plugging it in.

Took me about 15min to notice that I didn't even plug a mouse in.

Forgot to add: toggling always-on-top will also get a visual indication in an upcoming release (likely 0.39.0).

With more devices like the and daisy showing up as being used with we need to care about that too:

With a bit of help from the next phosh-osk-stub release can (optionally) hide when a keyboard gets attached.

I kept unlocking the 📱 a lot to check a cars charging status. Using 's launcher-box lockscreen-plugin and the LauncherEntry DBus protocol we can simplify that and have the information easily accessible:

If you're using in docked mode a lot and (like me) play videos while doing other things then upcoming changes in to have apps always-on-top and keybindings to move windows into screen corners might be helpful:

In case you want to support my work on and financially i've added some options to honk.sigxcpu.org/piki/donation
