@maximiliano & I did some work lately to port the search-provider crate to zbus and we also made sure the API is much nicer to use. You can find the docs of the "nightly " API at https://world.pages.gitlab.gnome.org/Rust/search-provider/search_provider/
and if you're looking for an example to look at we also ported Icon Library to make use of it, see https://gitlab.gnome.org/World/design/icon-library/-/blob/master/src/application.rs#L177.
In other words, you can easily make your Rust app provide a GNOME Shell search provider :)

Idea for a video tutorial (or blogpost): Setting up a new app from a Builder template, and submitting it to Flathub.
Some of the things that would be cool to cover:
- all the various places the app name and version number go
- appdata descriptions and screenshots
- making releases: git tags, release notes, etc.
- Managing two separate flatpak manifests
- Github submission flow
- Flathub builds dashboard
Soooo cute 😄😅

I love Linux as a photographer! I lately calibrated my monitor again and it is so easy with #displaycal in combination with a Datacolor Spyder 5.
But I was not able to make the calibration via #gnome color settings. It always gave me an error... Has anyone managed to do this?
I just tagged a new version of flatpak-github-actions. It can now do proper caching, uploading to a remote repository & more.

Safe Network — The Journey To Digital Freedom
A blog post by Paul Green aka Traktion
'...there is a trembling beneath our feet, where ground breaking technology is about to surface. Welcome, the return of Maidsafe and their Safe Network...'
#phosh 0.10.1 is out 🚀 : https://source.puri.sm/Librem5/phosh/-/releases/v0.10.1
See above release notes for the full list of changes and contributors.
If you have a hard time calling me in the next days it's because we're reworking the way incoming calls are handled in #phosh / #calls - so you can jump back and forth between locked and unlocked shell (please excuse the video quality). Now we need to fix make it look pretty.
TIL there's a standard for bundles with markdown + linked images in a single file. It's such a slam dunk idea, why is this not more commonly supported by markdown apps?
@safenetwork So exciting! Congratulations and thank you for all the hard work! (I need the rest of the day off from work ;)
Fleming Testnet Release
The #safenetwork Fleming testnet has dropped! :🎉
It feels very much like a decade+ of research and development, trial and error, blood, sweat and tears has borne some fruit today.
Read this post to find out how you can participate the new testnet - including with test coins and rewards.
Still plenty to do, but this is a real milestone towards perpetual data and secure access for everyone.
