Hi Mastodon πŸ‘‹ . I'm a non-binary C++ and weird film nerd. I'm into fermenting everything in sight and not getting enough sleep.

hey there's a thing out there called lddtree (debian package: pax-utils). it shows shared library dependencies *and* also where they come from, which is one very important thing ldd doesn't do for some reason

@karroffel oh thanks for the link. I posted a screenshot of my woes. :D

@SciFiGameDev the problem with Godot is that you just can't see anything not the color per se.

Has there been a larger discussion about this? If I submitted a PR with a default grey that's useful would it just be "lolno"?

Any Godot users know why the default in 3d is to have a useless blue material?

It's currently not possible to just hop into Godot and greybox an idea. :(

GIMP stands for GNU Image Manipulation Program and GNU stands for GNU’s Not UNIX and UNIX stands for Uniplexed Information and Computing Service so the full proper name for GIMP is actually:

GNU’s Not Uniplexed Information and Computing Service Image Manipulation Program

For one brief shining moment in the 1980s-1990s, it seemed like we the people would own and control our own computing infrastructure.

That we wouldn't ever after need permission from opaque central authorities to process data, send messages, create devices, teach machines ideas. No corporations or governments could put themselves between us and the data bits in our machines. We would be free to think.

That moment is rapidly slipping into a history that feels ridiculously over-optimistic.

Kinda feeling like I post on Mastodon only occasionally, and my posts here are almost like condensed versions of things I've been posting about for a week on Twitter. Whatever the one most dominant thing I have to say is.

Anyway, just signing on here today to say: Wow, I do not like Android Studio. Like, I just dislike it very much.

@mcc @_discovery and of course, the converse is that cargo doesn't even support the entire spectrum of what rustc can do. So less common linker situations are both impossible to build with cargo *and* monumentally challenging and frustrating to build without cargo.

@mcc @_discovery and after that, try it using a cross target such as aarch64-unknown-linux-gnu :D

@mcc @_discovery the explosion of dependencies is... Terrible. And do try building any common crate that uses compiler plugins using something other than cargo.

@mcc @_discovery any thoughts on bintray/Conan ? Personally I think we shouldn't go too deep into packages and dependencies until that horror of "a common build system is taken care of". You could argue it's Cmake (which I use) but that isn't uncontroversial.
On the other hand, Cargo is cool and all, but the mono culture around it troubles me a bit. Functionality of rustc and how to leverage it all gets folded into cargo rather than considered as part of a broader ecosystem.
