I subscribe to a newsletter[1] that has a coding challenge every week.

I did this week's in #Rust, but I'm sure there are many ways to make it more compact/better....


help welcome! How do I use map to sum over a Vector of structs?

May you be as happy as a troop of bears discovering a heap of apples

@codesections there is just so much wrong with combining web technologies with terminals this way...

It's 100% depressing that web/js developers seem to want to remake literally everything with their web technologies even if it doesn't make any sense (to me at least).

Sooner or later there will be a full OS written from scratch with web technologies I guess...

I've realized that I don't use any dependency injection in #Rust, and I don't miss it.

Cargo makes dependencies and workspaces so easy, that I break code up into small libraries instead. They are testable individually, and bigger things that would be unit tests with DI become more of integration tests instead.

Firefox Send is being discontinued. I guess Mozilla doesn't want to build services around the Firefox brand anymore? 🦊

@musicmatze Hey there. Sorry it's been a month and I didn't publish it yet. Currently working on some basic docs so people know how to use it without reading the source code.

Soon. I promise. Will definitely release some initial version in this month. (famous last words 😁 )

Currently writing on a report about different VCS and how they are different from . Initially I thought it's an interesting topic... but Git is the most popular one for a reason and I feel a little like "why explaining other (mostly older) systems, instead just use Git and call it a day" πŸ˜…

My motivation to continue this report is respectively low...

The yearly state of survey is out.πŸŽ‰ You can take part until the 24th of September.
Please help the Rust community improve the Rust ecosystem by taking part in the survey. It should take less than 15 minutes:

if java stops working on your computer, that just means someone else has installed java,and yours had to be sacrificed to maintain the 3 billion figure

The community is so big now that you stumble over awesome crates with thousands of stars on github, and you don't stumble over them because someone mentioned them to you, but because they just "appear" on your way through the internet.

This is awesome.

Can we please, please – PLEASE! not make the nonsensical US date format month/day/year the default in applications? πŸ€¦β€β™‚οΈ


And to all users of that format: it makes no sense, it's counter-intuitive, it makes collaboration frustrating, it introduces inconsistencies and errors... Just stop. Please. Use international standards.
(And don't get me started on your other units of weights, volumes and distances. Bloody hell.)

Boost if I'm right.

#Tusky 12.1 is out with a new setting to remove the top app bar, bug fixes and improved translations!
Thx to everyone reporting bugs and translating the app πŸ’™

@Tusky when a tab loads in the background then it's initially empty. The items seem to be there (you can see the separators) but the content is not rendered until swiping between different tabs so they get re-rendered.

That happens quite a lot because I have a tab with followed tags and that takes a while to load so I go to the main timeline and come back to that tab later.

Seems like items are not properly rendered when out of view πŸ€”

I attached you a screenshot

When brushing your teeth, do you

@tindall a while ago I checked out the samples of github.com/redox-os/orbtk

Seems promising but it took quite a bit of RAM for just a little calculator πŸ€”

I keep changing my VPN server's location, but wherever I go, the same horny housewives follow me around!

Stop it, Karen (32) from Nottinghamshire!
