@schratze it's actually fairly easy and _much_ better than other packaging systems. It basically amounts to writing a bash file to compile the program, but instead of spewing it's files all over the system (like installing from source normally would do) it creates a nice package you can install with pacman :)

@aoife - programming is fucking around and finding out

tech opinions 

@schratze is making your own PKGBUILD to submit to the AUR building from source or AUR?

@schratze ah that's quite annoying indeed. I guess I will steer clear from archinstall then

tech 

@schratze maybe for the future but btrfs can help with this as you can make a filesystem snapshot before you do something and rollback if you fuck up. You can even set it up to automatically snapshot on pacman commands: wiki.archlinux.org/title/Snapp

@schratze on long articles it helps looking at the ToC and immediately jumping to the part you actually need. But it can definitely be a bit all over the place on some articles.

@haskal @saphie I think it's more that it's very easy to write bad software in them

@saphie very accurate and I'm selfhosting both

@Vierkantor What sometimes also causes confusion is that in America "entrée" is the main dish of a meal

I have encountered more image descriptions on Mastodon in 24 hours than I have in Twitter in a couple of years. Seriously. I'm not exaggerating.
As a blind person, this means a lot to me. If you read this and you describe your images, thank you so, so, so much on behalf of all of us. If you don't, now you know you'll be helping random Internet strangers make sense of your posts by typing in a few more words than usual.

@hazel is your blocklist available somewhere, I'm always looking to prematurely block unsavory instances.

text editor recommendations 

I often see things like "nano is too basic, vim and emacs are too messy and hard, atom is slow and vscodium is electron and I don't know what editor to use" (which is of course valid criticism!), so I thought about recommending some less known text editors that I've tried before!

• Lite (github.com/rxi/lite)

it's a small and customizable editor written in Lua and C with SDL, which makes it *really* fast
