Every time I want to do anything non-trivial with Package.swift it takes a ton of time to find any official documentation for it. Turns out, there are nicely rendered doc comments here, I'm perplexed that this link is not featured anywhere prominently 🤨

0.10 release of the library for easy XML parsing using the Codable protocol in Swift is out. Except for a few breaking changes, it's mostly a bugfix release. Thanks to everyone who contributed and thanks to all the users, you're amazing! 👏

Zoom vs. Jitsi:

forum.privacytools.io/t/zoom-v

– Neither Zoom nor Jitsi are always end-to-end encrypted.
– Zoom and Jitsi apps and the web clients contain trackers/tons of JavaScript.
– Zoom's privacy policy has some issues, but the vast majority of Jisti instances has no privacy policy at all.

Always talk about pros and cons. Don't skip the drawbacks of so-called "alternatives."

UPDATE YOUR FIREFOX

If you're a Firefox user like me, you may have seen a pop-up urging you to restart Firefox so it can update. Do it.

A security issue could allow a malicious user to take control of your system. Exploits were detected in the wild.

Rhapsody in Blue is in the public domain now.

Here's a midi performance of the piece, which sounds really decent. I'll do a chiptune version later!

2020 goal:
When someone tells me I'm wrong, don't automatically become defensive, too sensitive, or immediately double down. Just listen without judgment.

I need to follow more people here. My Mastodon timeline is way too sleepy.

Any recommendations for good accounts to follow? Tech, Art, Photography, Writing, Gaming, or interesting folks of any kind are all welcome. I’m okay with following accounts that post NSFW content as long as they use CWs when posting it.

Would rather avoid accounts that are mostly focused on political content, though. I get way more than enough of that over on Twitter.

Job done. Wrote a little swift script/server to move all the movies from TodoMovies to Trakt. Now I can use any app for both movies and shows, about time! ^^

Is there a documentation generator that lets you basically write Markdown, and will create a nice web site from that? Needs support for anchors, per-page table of contents, “information” and “warning” boxes and source code highlighting.

Seems like Gitbook USED to be like that?

If you see an open-source project that has support for Twitter (in one way or another, could even be just linking to Twitter profiles in a website theme) but not Mastodon, go file an issue and ask kindly for it to support Mastodon, too.

@progo The "As long as it not Facebook, we can trust it!" syndrome

- "Free" to use and centralized
- Crappy ToS trying to force users to give "true, accurate, current and complete info" (no pseudonyms, can't chose what info you don't want to give for whatever reason)
- An empty "privacy" policy page
- Uses google maps…

Therefore it's just as shitty as facebook… So it's true this crap is just another "alternative" to facebook events. Not better, not ethical….

Is there a replacement for Mastodon Bridge yet, or is it now just totally impossible to find Twitter friends on Mastodon because of Twitter's shitty API changes?

In the first betas I did the same with a custom View, but a modifier may be more idiomatic.
Exciting time to discover what idiomatic means ^^

RT @mecid@twitter.com

Swift has a lot of great libraries for loading and caching remote images. Let’s integrate one of them with SwiftUI. I created an Image modifier which loads remote images with Kingfisher library. Remember that even ViewModifiers can has a State in SwiftUI.

I had to. It's not fun to start new UIKit project when SwiftUI is all over the twitter.

One thing this year WWDC would be bigger for me than Marzipan or Mac Pro: deprecation of the Xcode project format. Having separate directory and project hierarchy is ridiculous. Discovered a failing test that never ran on CI or locally because it was never in the project file 😖

Xenix was the Microsoft take on UNIX

"In the mid-to-late 1980s, Xenix was the most common Unix variant, measured according to the number of machines on which it was installed."

As I’ve quoted many times before: usage code first!

I’m so happy I keep an eye on other industries and ways of thinking, don’t let dogma pollute your mind!
