The PyScript Project Develops a Platform for Executing Python Scripts in a Web Browser

Thu, 05/05/2022 - 13:45

The project PyScript allows you to integrate Python handlers into web pages and create interactive web applications in Python. Applications are given access to the DOM and an interface for bidirectional interaction with JavaScript objects. The web application development logic is preserved, and the differences come down to the possibility of using the Python language instead of JavaScrpt. PyScript’s sources are distributed under the Apache 2.0 license.

The auto-save feature in GEdit vs the new GNOME Text Editor

Thu, 05/05/2022 - 09:00

I recently compared GEdit’s auto-save to Kate’s swap-save feature. Both features try to achieve the same goal — to protect your unsaved work from power failures and crashes — but through different means.

The new GNOME 42 release replaces GEdit with GNOME Text Editor (GTE) as the recommended default text editor. GTEdit also has a feature like Kate’s swap-save, so I thought I’d revisit the topic.

DietPi released a new version 8.4

Thu, 05/05/2022 - 01:50

The project released the new version DietPi v8.4 on April 30th, 2022. The highlights of this version are:

  • It comes with new images with updated Linux version for Odroid XU4 and NanoPi 2 series.
  • We replaced the confusing “Preference” menus in DietPi-Software with on-demand dependency choices.
  • You can now disable APT list compression in DietPi-Config to speed up APT package installations at the cost of increased disk writes and usage.
  • An issue has been solved where after the upgrade to Linux v5.15 the network connection could have failed.

DietPi is a lightweight Debian-based Linux distribution for SBCs and server systems, with the option to install desktop environments, too. It ships as a minimal image but allows the user to install complete and ready-to-use software stacks with a set of console-based shell dialogs and scripts.
