I've had the idea for a weird kind of Twitter client for years. With Mastodon being all open, I've decided to do the experiment:

What if your Timeline looked like iMessage. A normal timeline confuses me to no end because everything is out of context.

My experiment, Ebou, is a Mastodon client that looks like iMessage. Conversations are grouped by friends and sorted by recent postings.

It is super basic right now, but this already feels much more natural to me 😀

"Thoughts on the Python packaging ecosystem"

A new blog post, with some of my thoughts on the state of Python packaging ecosystem.

Came across interesting Python library today: `deprecated`.

It provides a decorator to mark your functions as deprecated,
and even has Sphinx docs support for adding deprecated, versiondadded, and versionchanged directives! 😲

I've been gradually restyling my website since the new year, wanted something fresh :) What do you think?

I want to show my appreciation to the people behind @elk for fixing its incompatability with @takahe impressively quickly, as well as just building a nice client. I've put in a few more endpoints we were missing so it works quite well for the basics now!

I turned my Kinetic Kudu illustration into a full HD wallpaper. ✨ Hand-painted. ✨
The original artwork took one month to create and almost the same amount of time was spent on turning the artwork into a wallpaper.
It's a good time to update your rotating desktop backgrounds to give your homes some kinetic energy. ❤️

Finally first release on PyPI! 🎉 🚀 🔥 ⚡
