Not saying this is a good idea

One big window for VcXsrv. awesomewm for a window manager. Mainly to manage maximized Emacs. There are easier ways to edit files in Windows and WSL. But it renders prettier fonts than VcXsrv with floating windows, so I think I’ll keep it. After I fix all the hotkeys, of course.

I used this post from Paul Silisteanu as a general guide, except apt install awesome awesome-extra for the awesomewm stuff.

Awesome(wm)

There’s been way too much “it just works (more or less)” in my desktop life lately, so I started using the awesomewm tiling window manager.

Disappointingly, it works just fine.

Still, good chance to learn enough Lua to customize my setup. Looks like I’ll be revisiting Kitty terminal and a few other tools that have been on the task list for a while.

Proudly doing it wrong

Proudly doing it wrong

  1. write a site weight script that prints a report to the console
  2. make the script write the report to a file, and include the file in /now. Now site building looks like:
    1. build the site
    2. weigh the site
    3. build the site and include the new report
    4. upload!
  3. (today) make the script write the info as JSON instead
  4. throw in some vue.js to fetch the JSON and reproduce the original report format almost exactly.
  5. profit?

But hey at least I don’t need to rebuild the site after weighing it. And when free time next allows I’ll learn a little more Vue.js and make the report prettier.

Getting work done on one machine, trying Manjaro with KDE on the other. I got used to GNOME Shell, which also means I got used to how slow it is. KDE’s pretty heavy-weight too, but so much snappier.
