Pinned toot

I've made a mock-up to illustrate my ideas about the next-gen terminal experience!

• the pathbar
• username, hostname and git branch displayed in the UI, shrinking the shell prompt back to just a $
• commands as cards
• syntax highlighting, including graying out the output a bit to differentiate it from commands themselves
• autocompletion (displayed in a native widget)
• built-in error handling options
• the time each command took (on the right)

I never did the thing, so here goes!

I'm a software developer who loves to hack on stuff. Some of my interests: , , , , , , pure , , , , & there's more.

I live in Moscow, 🇷🇺 & currently study at CMC MSU.

I work at SmartDec where I write a cool static analyzer for Java & Kotlin. I'm also a tech editor at

I'm on the Darling team; we hack on macOS internals to make apps & programs targeting Darwin run on Linux/Android.

Keystone pipline: *spills 210.000 gallons of oil*
Petrolheads: ...

Niger delta: *is destroyed by oil extraction*

Electric car: *exists*

Behold, I hacked together a hashtag autocompletion #tuskydev

TV person: "We're about to install the concrete countertops."
Me, to myself: "As opposed to abstract countertops."
Me, quieter: "That's what we call instantiation."

And if you were confused by the latest random statuses I was posting: I was using them to test custom emoji support on my Mastodon client for macOS that's under development.

Cocoa can be a bit rough to work with at times, but the results are always great!

«В 1708 году Пётр I ввёл для русского языка упрощённую письменность (гражданский шрифт) — без надстрочных знаков и с меньшим числом букв. Среди прочих «лишних» букв он отменил и ижицу (заменив на I или В, в зависимости от произношения). Но в 1710 году она была им восстановлена (без кендемы, независимо от звучания). Снова отменена в 1735 году. Снова восстановлена в 1758 году. Затем отменена в 1799 году и вновь восстановлена уже в 1802, затем в 1857 году было предложено вновь её отменить.»

@art We shouldn't have called it "pod"casts. Naming them after the iPod just makes Apple think they need to own it!

aha! Chris has something working on app ✌

meanwhile what happened? the new theme is on master Runtime?! C👀L 🙃

1.32 release highlights:
• awesome new dbg!() macro for debug-printing
• native (i.e glibc/libsystem_malloc) allocator instead of jemalloc by default (cuts down on binary sizes!)
• you can now use Self in more places
• more fn's became const fn's
• a new family of methods for converting between integers and their byte representations
• new things in macro_rules
• uniform paths: use statements now support the kind of item paths used elsewhere

The term "Procrastinator" triggers me.

I prefer the term "JIT Person", thank you.

#Tusky has reached 100.000 downloads on Google Play. Thank you all so much ♥️

And now for the unusual news. Meet Seashore, a native (Cocoa) free/libre image editor for macOS with @GIMP roots, GPLv2 license, and, since a few days, availability from the Apple's App Store:

@YaLTeR well, if you're using -Werror, you're willingly signing up for (builds of) your code breaking on *any* change that could potentially result in new warnings, such as someone using a newer version of the compiler. I wouldn't hold the author of the function that started returning a value accountable for -Werror setups breaking.

Would you say that changing a function that previously returned nothing (void) to return a value is a breaking API change?

In languages with saner type systems, that "nothing" is in fact a real value (of type NoneType, Unit, (), Void or something), but not in C. Yet this code compiles:

void foo() {}
void bar() { return foo(); }

It would break if foo() was to start returning a value, but... who writes this kind of code anyway. Perhaps some macros could expand to this, 🤔

-O0 is the default, but -g isn't

this makes no sense

strace could really use some color...

I'll see what I can do in xtrace
