oh, #Swift has named arguments
that's something i've been missing a lot in #Rust — especially after some years of programming #Python

Would be neat if we could have
a,b,* = i

be equal to
a,b = itertools.islice(i, 2)

It's a syntax error today, so the syntax is available, and I think there should be no ambiguity.

#introduction I've been lurking here for a while now thought I might officially introduce myself. I am a software developer, cartographer, FOSS enthusiast, and bird watcher. I love to develop in #vim #javascript and #python on #fedora with an #ergodoxez

Alright, here's 1.4.1, with only a few minor changes!


The main thing is search should now work properly again on not-2.8.0. Also, there's blurhash support, though only very basic.

Hello everyone !

📢 🔴 URGENT 🔴

An awesome software is dying, because its #developper has not time anymore to care of it.

It's an alternative of Adobe AfterEffect : Natron (

Please, can Mastodon community search for a C++ dev, which want to maintain it ? or search for a company which work with free software ? It's very important.

Boost very appreciated

Thanks in advance for your contribution !

Btw, Pythonistas. I'm in testing phase of delivery and receive for my #federation library for #ActivityPub support. After that it's mostly implementing objects and such.

Q: are there any well working JSON-LD libraries or shall I just go the way I initially was going to, ie "it's all JSON"? 😀

#python #json #jsonld

I just got reminded - more of those #IPFS projects need to pull a build from source and split out into multiple ones like Sass did with Dart or something.

Like build a core project in #Rust or #D and bind it to other languages like #Ruby, #Python or #JavaScript.

Help us help you build that world versus us doing fuck-all to just to interop with it. Ugh.
