I'm in! Hacktoberfest 2020
It is fairly easy to contribute and find low hanging fruits yourself as described here:
I got my last PR for this season into typeshed:
Now to get that tree :)
Ah, Coldplay vibes. The chord progression at the chorus is a little bit like "Speed of sound". Love it!
I have been using #xarray for quite sometime, but until now I had only used it sequentially. I had copied the open_mfdataset function to #pymech, but without properly trying out the parallel=True option.
Today I spawned some #dask distributed workers using dask-mpi and there was a 3x speedup for loading a collection of 100 files using 6 cores.
I should try out dask-jobqueue in the #HPC clustef next.
I am divided on the #PEP594 thing. On one hand, yes it is cool to have a minimalistic Python deployed on new platforms: the web and the native mobile space.
However, I don't like that because it:
1. breaks backwards compatibility
2. adds another layer of dependency resolution
3. takes away the batteries included nature of Python, which is one of its defining characteristic.
It is possible that first or blessed third party packages might be the future if #PEP594 (the contentious "removing dead batteries" proposal) decides to go forward.
But unlike the latter here is a clear need for separating tzdata, since timezones are often announced in short notice and must be deployed on a reactive style.
I noticed tzdata which is considered a part of the CPython project, a "first party package" but hosted on PyPI. Quoting #PEP615
> The term "first party" here is distinguished from "third party" in that, although it is is distributed via PyPI and is not currently included in Python by default, it is to be considered an official sub-project of CPython rather than a "blessed" third-party package.
The installation is now lightweight following upstream work at #FluidSim.
Belated happy birthday @kde !
This works in HPC clusters too logged in via SSH. Amazing isn't it?
1. Start tmux
2. Open a few panes and terminal applications
3. Type tmux detach. Alternatively, the shortcut.. Ctrl-B,d
4. Type tmux attach or simply tmux a to jump back in.
This is a more robust workflow than minimising / nohup / Ctrl-Z + fg etc.
Woohoo the new Fennec is up on #FDroid!
#KDE applications being available in Windows store and F-droid repos is a great incremental model for convergence. It may not be perfect as native apps (in Windows), but at least there is an option to choose freedom. I installed KWeather in Android and it looks decent. Also, how KDE Connect pauses music playback during phone calls and resumes feels magical.
With more applications being developed using #Kirigami, the UI/UX is bound to improve.
If there is any alternative to these let me know.
$50 a month. Sorry. But still it is a lot less considering there are not many developers working on it.
Navigating mastodon by a combination of hashtags. This is how you do it in the web client.
@maswan The timelines here seem frozen. The latest toot that I see (except for my own) is ~1 day old. Everything alright?
