Back to #launch #electron flew 3 times this quarter thus achieving an average launch cadence of 1 per month. They do need to step it up a bit if they want to achieve 15 launches by the end of the year. The majority of the launches will happen in H2 2023.

#HASTE is planned to launch in Q2 2023, which is blazing fast since #HASTE wasn't even on the drawing board a year ago. #space

It was an awesomely productive day today, even though I was again upset by PM/PO/Marketing deciding after months of not doing anything to now change the dialogs and we don’t even know to what. Worst of all: the designer provided some drafts but they are all using the OLD designs and we had agreed that we’d stick to Material Design with the new project. Now I see… nothing! No material design, absolutely nothing. Just the same old crap. And the reasoning? Well, the designer just quickly put something together...

Anyway, that is a different project I am working on and it is a little bit annoying at the moment with PM/PO/Marketing…

But back to good news: today I implemented AV-Call for the macOS-Version of #Ginlo / #Cicero (#Ginlo_II). We are using JitsiMeet and there is no native SDK for macOS or Windows for JitsiMeet. There are only SDKs for iOS & Android.

And Since I am doing #Flutter development, I can’t even use #Catalyst on macOS (which I don’t like anyway, but that’s another story).

So, how to integrate JitsiMeet then?

  1. I wrote a small JavaScript-“app” which ships with my native binary-app as an HTML-file (in the assets)*.
  2. I load this HTML-file, patch the necessary settings directly with String.replaceFirst and then …
  3. I save it to a temporary file
  4. Now I use to create a separate WebView-Window
  5. Tell this Webview to then load that file.

That file contains a final window.onload = function() {…} which then starts up Jitsi, i.e. loads it from our server, configures it, secures it, etc.

This is actually awesome, because this way I also have a two-window-solution for Flutter on macOS before Flutter officially supports it.

And since that new window/Webview runs in a separate isolate, it is even safer this way.


#macOS #Jitsi #JitsiMeet

*: Technically I had already written that “app” a long time ago for Ginlo Business Desktop-version, which is an #Electron-based app. Since it worked successfully there, I stripped it down to the bare-minimum necessary to get it working with my Flutter-app.

#rocketlab has recently unveiled their new #HASTE rocket. Lets dive a little deeper.

#rocketlab first started with suborbital rockets, the Atea. They soon abandoned the rocket to develop an orbital rocket, the #Electron.

Now Rocket Lab has modified the the electron to be able to serve suborbital customers. They said in a recent tweet that the kickstage has been modified to be able to deploy hypersonic payloads. The electron booster can now also carry a payload of 700 kg! That is more than twice its normal orbital payload capacity.

Now the question is, why?

They have been selected by Dynetics to provide hypersonic test launch capability on HASTE under the MACH-TB project awarded by NSWC Crane on behalf of Department of Defense.

Fair to say that the current suborbital market for private companies is quite small. Thus HASTE will operate primarily under RLNS which is a subsidiary fully owned by Rocket Lab.

RLNS was created to serve the needs of the U.S. defense and int. #space

Temporary solution: use Electron 21 with legacy capturer turned on 

By visiting you can find both dev and stable builds of ArmCord with 2 Electron versions 21 (Wayland working ) and 22 (Win7/8.1 support). These builds are gonna be rebuilt at least once a week with latest git commits. Have fun!

I love the idea of #OrgMode instead of a heavy #Electron based #PKM (ahem #Logseq, #Obsidian, etc). But I need to also use it on #iOS.

Do any of you have a solution or recommendation for using orgmode on iOS devices? I know orgmode is just #PlainText, but typing on iOS is already a high friction point for me, let alone the extra formatting.

Do you use another app or system for capturing on iOS that funnels into your orgmode system? I'd love to hear about it!

FWIW, I'm using Logseq atm.

Why it’s better not to use desktop versions of messengers such as WhatsApp, Telegram, Signal

"- All of them are built on the Electron framework, which means that the Chromium browser may be outdated and have security vulnerabilities.

- The encryption keys can be easily stolen unlike their mobile counterparts

-RATs represent threats against which desktop messenger clients are practically defenseless."

So now that the #Teams desktop client is deprecated for Linux, I've installed the PWAsForFirefox extension, installed Teams as a #PWA, and now my experience is *so much better*.

Third, screensharing is functional again thanks to Pipewire integration.

One of the fascinating things about discussing Electron as a way of delivering applications is that there are many people who don’t seem to be bothered by the lack of standard OS features in the platform.

There are many apps that I use specifically because I know I will want to use them as part of an automation workflow on my Mac. If I can’t do that then I won’t use the app.

Do other OSes not have that same uniformity of platform features?

@davew @AbeEstrada @marcoarment It’s great for what it is, but the advantages of cross-platform abstraction diminish if and when you want more interop with the surrounding OS while maintaining feature parity. You write enough shims for native APIs, you might as well be writing native code.

And the processor, memory, and resulting energy suck is real. Users with many #Electron apps hate that.

Context: if you follow #deltachat_desktop discussions on the #deltachat forum you might already know that we're planning to move #deltachat_desktop from #electron to #tauri in the future. But porting the desktop client is a big effort (our move to #jsonrpc was one step into this direction).
So I made this small sample project to check tauri out.
It's a nice side effect if the emoji picker is useful by itself, maybe we could even build a community for the emoji picker.

Well, I desoldered the socket from the Issue 6 #Acorn #Electron board, cleaned it up, fixed a couple of damaged traces and placed a PGA socket.

Turns out that with a replaced IC18 and a couple of repaired traces (and a cracked via filled with solder) it works just fine. The memory corruption and timing problems I saw with the Synertek gate array in the Issue 4 Electron don't seem to manifest.

I did replace the Rockwell #6502A with a Synertek one, just so it'd be in spec.

it's going to be super bad for Mozilla's legacy if it turns out that Jack fucking Dorsey builds the alternative mobile OS that challenges the Apple/Google duopoly.

#Mozilla should've been all over projects like #Electron, #ChromeOS, #KaiOS and the #Framework laptop. Mozilla Foundation should've researched the future they wanted to build instead of dumping money into making Youtube (owned by their biggest competitor) slightly less fascist.

We should never forgive the the 2010s tech activism grift, flush with cash dedicated to making huge companies "less evil" despite a constant slide towards a barbaric technofuture. And for what? Who gives a shit about your design ethics when the whole thing can be wiped out in an instant by a strategic purchase.

Mozilla Corp and Foundation had access to talent, goodwill and community to be the leaders of a true alternative to FAANG.

Instead, the world's best browser is stagnant; infused with a featureless password manager, a resold third party VPN and a 'me too' email relay plugin.

The Foundation is busy attending to "trustworthy" AI, "re-imagining" web monetisation thru tech (a legislation issue) and trying to make their unaccountable competitors ethical.
