A few days ago I had an idea for a simple e-ink project and found Inkplate - an Open Hardware design with ESP32 and recycled Kindle displays.

Programmed it to wake up daily at midnight to download a PGM image over WiFi (gitlab.com/dos1/kartka) from a server which checks some stuff like trash collection schedule. Should last years on a single battery charge.

Check it out if you look for a super approachable way to build some e-ink stuff! inkplate.io/

@elb I gave up on trying to fix this across all my boxes/VMs and just aliased `ssh` to use xterm-color instead:

if [ "$TERM" = "xterm-kitty" ] ; then
alias ssh='TERM=xterm-color ssh'
fi

@elb As in the only way to program is by looking at the lights?

@simpletools Multiple-cursor support (SubEthaEdit, Sublime Text) is a feature that is increasingly hard for me to work without.

@dos The chatter on that ticket is nifty. Debugging usually isn't such a visual process, so it was fun to see the evolution of the camera's output through the development process. Thanks for that pointer!

Google Street View shows us something else about the old Inner Loop Expressway: the lack of traffic.

@agx My mistake... I was specifically asking about extensions and not tweaks. Thanks.

@agx Out of curiosity, are there any plans to make Phosh/Phoc compatible with Gnome Extensions (aka Tweaks)?

@adam @agx I completely agree that there are more opportunities for improvement here, and if that was your entire argument then I withdraw my objection. Your original post had a very disparaging tone that made it seem like you felt that this was moving things in the wrong direction. (It seems to me like a splash screen would be a prerequisite for a progress bar)

@adam @agx Speaking from experience, communicating that *something* is happening is better than not providing visual feedback to the user's action. This is a good step in the right direction.
