Introducing Write Free Software: A comprehensive educational resource for the free software community
the april blog post is out, ditching duckduckgo for mojeek. i've loved using this search engine for a few months now, and wanted to write about why i opted to use it in place of duckduckgo. https://hamblingreen.com/
Ever since doing the initial completion support in #phosh 's osk-stub I wanted to add a generic "unix pipe" like completer. phosh-osk-stub would feed the program preedit on stdin and read the completions from the program's stdout.
That is there now and with that and some more changes I can use @zachdecook 's #swipeGuess to do swipe like typing. To be clear: all the hard work is done by swipeGuess, phosh-osk-stub just piggy backs on it:
What's a good open source #router that I can buy in the states? I already have an ethernet switch, so I just need basic 2 port WAN/LAN, maybe with wifi as well.

Today I learned that if a #PinePhone gets too hot, some of the pixels won't work, but will work fine after it cools off 😅
Please do theme our apps
We are developers and designers making user-friendly apps. We take pride in our craft and work hard to make sure our applications are a great experience for people.
Unfortunately, there are increasing efforts on the current market to disallow or discourage customization. This worsens user experience for a lot of software.
Kirigami colour sets allow developers to easily make their UI work with any colour schemes.
Icon Themes allow users to have a unified view across different applications.
Application styles allows users to decide how a button is represented, how wide a scroll bar should be, etc.
All these not only give users the freedom to decide how the applications should behave, but also make room for accessibility considerations like larger buttons, more visible focus indication, and more contrastive colours and shades.
This is why we believe application developers should be aware of the possibility to customize its appearance.
If you are an application developer, we kindly ask that you do not hard-code any colour or size, but rather follow the system styles.
On a platform level, we should implement a colour set editor that informs users about what colours might be put where, and advises about how contrastive the foreground and the background are in different places.
If you are a user or distribution maintainer that ships our apps, and you are having issues with our apps on your customized colour set or application style, please do tell us, and we can figure out the cause of the problem.
