Programming and Software Leftovers

  • Why is cross-language cooperation so hard?

    My previous blog post on the future of Meson was a smashing hit (with up to five(!) replies on Twitter), so I figured I'd write a bit more in depth article about the issue. I'd like to emphasize that like previously, this article only mentions Rust by name, but the issues raised are identical for all new programming languages such as D, Go, Nim, and all the others whose names I don't even know.

  • Riccardo Padovani: Glasnost: yet another Gitlab's client.

    Among the others features, I’d like to highlight support for multiple Gitlab hosts (so you can work both on your company’s Gitlab and on Gitlab.com at the same time), two different themes (a light one and a dark one), a lite version for when your data connection is stuck on edge, and support for fingerprint authentication.

    The application is still in an early phase of development, but it already has enough features to be used daily. I am sure Giovanni would love some feedback and suggestions, so please go on the Glasnost’s issues tracker or leave a feedback on the PlayStore.

    If you feel a bit more adventurous, you can contribute to the application itself: it is written in React+Redux with Expo: the code is hosted on Gitlab (of course).
