Status update, September 2020 September 15, 2020 on Drew DeVault's blog

A mercifully cool September is upon us, and after years of searching, I finally was able to secure Club Mate in the US. Let’s decant a bottle and recant the story of this month’s progress in free software development.

First of all, I’ve been able to put a pin on operations work on SourceHut for the time being, and focus again on its software development. The GraphQL APIs are a major focus area here, and I’ve made a lot of progress towards OAuth 2.0 support and writable GraphQL APIs. Additionally, I’ve laid out a number of prioritized tickets for the beta — with the “beta” label on todo.sr.ht — and have been picking items off of the list one at a time, mainly focusing on meta.sr.ht improvements at first. I’ll go into more detail in the What’s Cooking post for SourceHut later today, stay tuned.

There has been some advancements in the little projects: a second Python implementation of BARE has appeared, another in Common Lisp, and one in PHP; bringing the total implementations to nine. We have a pretty decent spread of support among programming languages!

Not much more news to share today. Been focusing in on SourceHut and a secret project, so check out the What’s Cooking post for more details. Thanks for your support!

Automatic case design for KiCad

I don't generally get along great with CAD software with the exception of KiCad. I guess the UX for designing things is just a lot simpler when you only have 2 dimensions to worry about. After enjoying making a PCB in KiCad the annoying for me is alwa…

The floor is lawa!

And now for something completely different… When was the last time you were excited about a simple window with nothing but a single background color? Well, I currently am. Let me tell you about it… This window is notable, because it was created using the ”pu…
