Are there any good GUI GIT clients for Linux? I've been using GitAhead, but it started failing me, so I decided to look around for alternatives. Or should pull (push?) myself together and learn to use CLI?

Jokes aside, I still got a lot of ideas, and if I'll continue I'll end up with something like ableton on MCU, but for now playing breaks is already cool enough

Got to the point where I think that loop player for NeoTrellis M4 that I've been developing is usable enough to take a break. Amen break

Hot take on UI/UX in FOSS 

Disclaimer: all of the above is based on my observations of discussions on 3-4 projects. I'd be happy to know that there are big community developed projects that do it without all this chaos.

Hot take on UI/UX in FOSS 

And of course lack of proper user research, user testing and analytics (I get it, privacy...) makes it just about the discussion of random UI concepts. With this approach you can randomly can come up with good UX, but the chances are close to 0

Hot take on UI/UX in FOSS 

Without a clear guidance and vision from one person you'll just end up with designed-by-committee collage. Which explains why even big FOSS projects often look like shit. It's not like there are no good designers contributing, it's just they don't know what they are doing, and how it fits in the big picture

Hot take on UI/UX in FOSS 

Sometimes I'm thinking about contributing to some FOSS projects, but as soon as I see how discussions about UI and UX are happening, the only thing I want to do is to run away as far as I can.

I get it, community driven development is hard to control, but throwing a lot of UI concepts without any explanation with following unstructured discussion makes it even worse.

How do you even make a decision out of it?

Of course I'm excited that I got my , just not sure that I'm THAT excited

switched back to arduino c. I feel much more confident with it.

circuit python feels weird compared to arduino code. probably just a matter of habit, but still...

It used to kinda work on the breadboard, but now that it's partly soldered some leds appear not to work, and some behave weirdly.

I'm about to give up (for now) the idea of making my own drum machine. I don't spend enough time on it, and every time I get back to it after the break, it feels like I'm starting from scratch and it's really exhausting
