Feeling very happy with my dithering CLI. I was developing and using it today, to create an example image for the README. Felt fun and powerful to use, it has all the features I want.
Here's a sneak peak of the interface. It'll probably be released this weekend.

Browser Tabs: They are weird because users tend to place tabs that "belong together" in close proximity on the 1-dimensional tab row, like 2 web pages they want to switch quickly in between. However, tabs are exactly the tool that _prevent_ seeing both pages at the same time.

Update on the announced self-hostable #bandcamp alternative: Got tons of work done on the foundation over the last days (architecture, reading, transcoding, caching, syncing, configuration, cli arguments, ...). Today was the first time I did some design exporation (first glimpses attached - these are already in-browser screenshots of the functional interface, not mockups :)). I'm developing out in the open at https://codeberg.org/simonrepp/faircamp °˖✧◝(⁰▿⁰)◜✧˖°
