Oooh: tinytools.directory/

"This is a list of small, free, or experimental tools that might be useful in building your game / website / interactive project. Although I’ve included ‘standards’, this list has a focus on artful tools and toys that are as fun to use as they are functional.

The goal of this list is to enable making entirely outside of closed production ecosystems or walled software gardens."

The final result is:

* R = 25%
* G = 40%
* B = 36%

As expected (and described in the thread), the gamut is pretty low (ie. not an immense possibility of colours, due to fact that masto polls options sum is 100)

0..100 to 0..255 (in gimp) give:

* R = 63.8 (64)
* G = 102
* B = 91.8 (92)

HTML: #40665C

It's a soft, dark, bluish green!

It's complimentary color is #66404A (102,64,74)

Its triadic scheme:
#5C4066 (92,64,102) and #665C40 (102,92,64)

We could call it "Fédi-vert"?

Great alternatives to #Signal that check all the boxes (#decentralization, #privacy, #opensource, #anonymous, #cryptocurrency-free):

- #Briar: briarproject.org
- #DeltaChat: delta.chat
- #Matrix: matrix.org
- #XMPP / #Jabber: xmpp.org (It aged very well, supports signal-like encyption and battery-efficient mobile apps now. If you dismissed it in the past, I encourage you to give it another try.)

#prusaslicer vs #cura...I am trying to move away from cura but some interesting results are happening! the two #3DBenchy on the left are sliced in prusa and the most right one in cura. Same filament, print temps and speeds. prusaslicer always squashes benchy quite a bit :( I like prusa slicer GUI a bit more but the results are very poor.

I recently realized that provides different fonts for both and /#osx it seems that a flavor of woof2 with hinting is served for windows while for others it strips hinting out generating a smaller file size.

I went ahead and updated labs.binaryunit.com/localgfont to retrieve different file formats and their flavors.

Also it now works with and without

@loke

Yep! That's exactly what makes me think about it.

People keep using it because although it's absolutely terrible, *there's nothing better*.

Silicon Valley has trillions of dollars of (real or imaginary) money, vast warehouses filled with AIs, and 30 years of practice at "doing the Web", yet none of that money, and none of that experience has been capable of or interested in "making anything better than phpBB for Internet discussions". Instead, they've made something worse.

The `prefers-color-scheme` media query is great, ...but...

What about when we want to set it as a toggle for a specific website?

We can use attributes on a root element `[data-theme="dark"]` and set the preference with ..but...

What about when we want the website to works with and without javascript and still respect the `prefers-color-scheme` setting.

I achieve this with duplication of color variables declaration but i wonder if there is a smarter solution without duplication?

feeling very creative today. Did some #databending with #gimp and a hex editor which yielded some nice glitches. here's the result after loading those into #koala and sequencing with #tidalcycles
