@deshipu @uliwitness MkDocs with the mkdocs-material is absolutely perfect for all my documentation needs, and there's a cracking amount of plugins. You can add arbitrary JS/CSS overrides too. For example I added Klipse to one documentation site for inline code samples, and the python markdownx libraries with custom code fences + custom JS can let you generate Mermaid diagrams on demand πŸ™ƒ (it's all python, so it's easy to dockerise, but perhaps a bit daunting if new to python)

@sohkamyung @gemlog I take it back. It's just as bad in Seremban as it is in KL and everywhere else πŸ˜…

This is the PineTime. A companion for your Linux smartphone, and new side-project of ours. More news coming in the future...

(If you have experience with FreeRTOS or mbed, and are interested, please get in touch!)

@gemlog @sohkamyung you have my sympathies on the haze. It's rough here too. It's a sad day when travelling to the countryside is a boon simply because it has a lower air pollutant index (although still not exactly *healthy*) 😞

@quaylessed Malaysia, which skews towards the slightly conservative side, although they're flexible on a whole lot of rules besides closing hours (especially the road rules πŸ˜‰)

At 1am, to the barman: what time do you close?
Barman: 1am
To the barman: can we have another drink?
Barman: of course!

Cheers! 🍻 to everyone reading this

"Agile is about knowing, as early as possible, just how screwed we are." - Clean Agile

@magthe πŸ˜… I do this, when I need to fix something and be certain it's "safe" for deployment. I think of it like surgery, or analogous to a "surgical strike": in, out, with as little collateral damage as possible πŸ˜‰

After personal experience trying to find suitable apps, I wonder: what apps do other people wish existed, but don't? Maybe @switchingsocial@mastodon.at has some insight (πŸ˜‰)?

@natharari @kezzbracey@linuxrocks.online πŸ˜… I sympathise - I do. I've tried a great many editors of the years, although admittedly never emacs. I'm comfortable in Vim, and that's good enough for me.

What usually gets me is the joke that "Linux is a platform for running emacs" / the idea that emacs is practically a small OS - that's the *opposite* of what I want from my editor πŸ˜‰

Small, light, minimal. I still `grep` my codebases for example, rather than using a plugin πŸ˜‹

@art its awesome, but just watch the fine print.

I once tested Ansible scripts for spinning up a multi-node Hadoop cluster on , but didn't realise the minimum billing increment was an hour. I racked up a USD$600 bill in a few days πŸ˜…

They very kindly cut the bill significantly when I explained, but still... πŸ˜‹

@kezzbracey@linuxrocks.online being able to open, edit, and save a file with vi/vim is definitely an invaluable skill to have 😊 maybe search...

@kezzbracey@linuxrocks.online I have a couple of plugins, mostly just linters and EditorConfig.

My argument is that I work with a *lot* of servers (work and personal). If I can use unmodified , I can use vi. And vi is almost always installed, even on a brand new server.

However, if you only work with one or two Linux installs, stick with whatever you're comfortable with πŸ™ƒ

@kezzbracey@linuxrocks.online you'll never pry me away from raw, vanilla (my coworker has been trying to convince me to use - I have avoided his evil influence thus far) 😜

Bit of a bad day with ; after multiple releases to get on top of the new requirements by Google (target SDK 28, support 64-bit), hit an issue that broke the app on all pre-Pie versions of Android

PackageInfo.versionCode is deprecated, so it won't build. Use the new version, and it won't run on pre-Pie versions. There's a compatibility package, but to use _that_ you have to update your app to use AndroidX and install Jetifier to hot-patch your node_modules... 😩

Works now. Need 🍺

@cloudflarelink definitely add me to that blacklist for no replies plz πŸ˜‰

Hello #Fediverse!

Now that we have our collective, bank account and donation system setup, we're also investigating alternative #funding options.

Nobody in our team seem to have experience with grants/sponsorships, so if you have experience with these, or know some grants/organizations we should look into, would you mind getting in touch?

(No forum topic listed, this is currently an internal team discussion)

Thank you very much, #BoostsAppreciated!

@carbontwelve we have some of these in our codebases, except we use variations of TODO, HACK, WITCHCRAFT ALERT, and probably some others (they do have distinct meanings as well πŸ˜…)
