Compiled oxipng to WebAssembly, very littlechanges were required :)

haha, Phoronix wrote about the stuff I posted on wayland-devel@. So yeah, I’m working on Rust bindings for libweston that would eventually allow me to write the best Wayland compositor ever :)

And fractional HiDPI scaling was pretty easy to add. Wayland apps look awesome. However, X11 apps are blurry now, and bypassing the scaling for Xwayland is not as easy… So I made some changes to my Ports fork to enable Wayland support in more apps. Turns out a lot of complex applications run fine — LibreOffice (!), Inkscape, MyPaint, RawTherapee, Darktable.

The Firefox Wayland support though… is not usable yet :( It looks awesome but EGL isn’t working and, even worse, the screen doesn’t refresh when it needs to — so you’re typing and letters don’t appear until you scroll or some time passes. Hopefully this will be fixed soon.

So there’s no support in pretty much all Wayland compositors for fancy keyboard mapping utilities like xcape because no one wants a keylogging protocol extension. (Even an access-controlled one!! Why.)

Turns out it’s better to just solve this on the evdev level. And I’ve done it in the coolest way possible: with a tiny sandboxed scripting environment. Meet evscript! It runs Dyon scripts in an environment with evdev, uinput, stdout and nothing else. xcape functionality is already provided in the “standard library” :)

Adding FreeBSD 12 support to Crystal was super easy! Unfortunately, can’t say the same about Rust.

Freepass update: finally changed the serialization to use Serde instead of rustc_serialize.

Also doing some work on the Android app. It will eventually become a thing! :)

Introducing freepass, the free password manager for power users!

Written in Rust, uses libsodium, derives things from one password using the Master Password algorithm. And by “things” I mean not just passwords, but also Ed25519 keys for SSH, signify, SQRL
