Google Assistant is finally able to talk to me in both languages _and_ it can maintain a conversation across them

how cool is that

Since everyone seemed to love my terminal mockups, I've made another one!

This is a further design exploration, showcasing:
• background jobs label/popover
• `ls` displaying an actual list of files! Of course, they are interactive, you can drag'n'drop them from here, click them to open, and right-click for more options.
• autosuggestions being contextual: here, they suggest you to re-run `apt` as root or read the docs
• a collapsed card
• `git` using real graphics

All the widgets are interactive! You can click on the pathbar to `cd`, and the popovers on the bottom bar let you basically do `ssh`, `su` and `git checkout`; the git one additionally allows you to open the current repo in Gitg or in Builder.

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

Featuring:
• 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)

@BabyWOGUE beat me to posting it 😀

I, um, designed a thing!

Without further ado, here's the new icon to go in line with the 3.32 redesign of app icons:

And here's what the Document Viewer (Evince) in GNOME 3.30 looks like when it's displaying an actually beautiful document ("The Little Prince" PDF from eLibrejo).

This page: gitlab.gnome.org/GNOME/gnome-s is merely super slow in Firefox, GNOME Web & Odysseus, but it completely hangs the whole tab in Chrome, both desktop and mobile.

@ashfurrow would it be possible to make this pic display as a custom emoji (:rust-thinking:)? pretty please 😀

Here's @alcinnz's Odysseus (Flatpak build with libunity manually patched out) next to GNOME Web. Despite some theming issues (oversized and missing icons, that misplaced menu, flashing autocompletions, misaligned text... — I've seen the same with Tootle, another Elementary app) it looks quite native and actually works (in my brief testing) well. With a little polish it could be a viable alternative to Web.

...not that I can switch away from Chrome 😞

Hey @aral, I'd like to do submit merge request for Gnomit (to make it use the header bar like native GNOME apps do), but I can't seem to find a way to sign up on that GitLab instance. So I'm attaching the patch here instead: gitlab.gnome.org/snippets/341

Here's a prototype of what a -looking version might look like
