    Wakatime doesn't track how much time you spend on a specific program, it tracks how much time you spend working on specific git projects (I don't know if it works with other version control systems). I use it to track how much time I spend working on personal projects and see if I meeting my goals.

    The editor plugins and cli utility are open source, so is possible to create a self-hosted and open source alternative and some have tried, but as far I'm aware Wakatime is still the best option.

    Edit: I took a quick look at the ActivityWatch documentation and it could really work as an alternative to Wakatime, I'm definitely going to give it a try.

    Wakatime is a tool that helps you track how much time you've spend working on specific projects. The post is not as insightful as the Stackoverflow Developer Survey but it is still interesting.

    • r/asklatinamerica because I like that sub.
    • r/menslib one of the best communities of reddit centered around men issues and it has some values that overlap with tildes.
    • r/cooperatives I think it would be cool to have a left leaning community that focusses more on actions, there're probably others that center more on activism, is just that cooperatives is the only one I know.

    I want to create a web server that works alongside Syncthing with the following requirements:

    • Web interface to browse synced files and folders.
    • WebDAV support.
    • Syncthing API integration.
    • Allow public access to specific files or directories.
    • Create temporary or permanent download links.
    • PWA Client.

    From these, I want to complete at least the first two requirements by the end of the month.


    I'm also working on my personal website and I'm planning in making a pure Vue alternative to Masonry, so I also want to add that to the list... and maybe also share my website at the end of the month 🙃.

    A few about Latin America:

    • Latin American countries don't seem themselves as an homogeneous group, the same way states in a country don't seem themselves as a homogeneous group.
    • Just because the media report a leader as left leaning doesn't mean that the leader is good or actually leftist.

    I wrote more than I was expecting. TLDR: I dinned and old lady In one of my dreams of today, a fortune teller told me to find a quiet and solitary place to read something and relax, I immediately knew where, somewhere in a small mountain near my house, but I rapidly disregarded the idea because in my mind the chances of meeting a random person there where quite high, even though is not true in real life. I didn't know where to go but I felt adventurous and eager, so I decided to as far as I could possible go.

    I decided to climb to the top of them mountain and then follow the east road, while walking I had the sensation or more precisely I knew that the world was smaller than it is in real life, somehow Canada was only a few hours away and also there weren't any oceans, every continent was connected.

    I didn't realized at the moment but I was walking through lands that I've visited in previous dreams, in my dream it felt as if I've walked for hours, but I'm sure that only a few minutes or even seconds had passed in real life, suddenly I found myself if front of a giant mall, I was also very hungry for all the walking, I decided to enter the mall and look for something to eat but it really that easy, you had to pay in order to enter the mall, at the entrance there was some sort of ticket machine but it only accepted credit card, something that I didn't have with me.

    Here's a crazy thing, somehow I knew that I was in South Korea and somehow I knew that in SK is legal to cheat the system if you find a way, and it wasn't that difficult to find a way, you see there where to electric staircases in front of me, one to enter the mall and one to exit the mall, and only the staircase to enter the mall had the ticket machine... but I didn't had to think much, while this thoughts were flowing through my mind I saw somebody entering to the mall through the other staircase, I just followed him.

    Despite of how impressive the mall was from outside there wasn't a lot going inside, a shitty internet caffe and a shitty convenience store. I was really hungry, but somehow I also knew that using dollars in SK was illegal. I don't remember if tried to talk with somebody in order to get some food, but I remember that I left still hungry and sad.

    I went my way, but now below the mall as it seemed that there was metro station under it, once there I saw a scene taken out of Kowloon, a poorly lit alley with a long but narrow house at the side, outside the house was a big man peeling potatoes and inside there was a young and an old woman watching tv. I decided to try my luck once again, I entered the house and went directly to the old woman, I asked if she knew english and also toll her that I was really hungry and that I had some money with me. Everyone looked at me as if I were crazy, it was obvious that they didn't understand a single word, I was about to left the house disappointed when the old lady stopped, she understood me perfectly.

    Here's the craziest par of my dream, at some point during the last scene the old lady became a sentient pig (similar to Porco Rosso) the old lady (now pig) felt so moved about me that she decided to sacrifice herself, in that moment I saw a very anime-like montage: a close-up on lady's face, she nods and now her body moves back until it occupies all the frame, intermediately parts of her body start to became food, one by one, until all is left is his head, all in front of an animated background showing different food stills. So yeah, the lady is dead now.

    Here's another crazy thing, while I was walking a became a girl, I don't mean that I acquired a female body but that I completely stopped to being me and became a different person, a late teens or early 20's woman. This is important because once the montage finishes I'm (or the girl) still on the house, but now with plate of food in front of me, and if a very anime and exaggerated way I said: "Wah! I can't believe the old lady sacrificed herself just so I can had something to eat" . I wake up in that moment.

    • Why a new user would know about those distributions?
    • Why is necessary for a new user to install a distribution just to make Emacs more usable? Ideally a user would start messing with Emacs once they feel comfortable with it, not the other way around: install a distribution to make Emacs more comfortable from the beginning.
    • I would argue that the fact that so many distributions exists is because Emacs has an awful user experience out of the box.

    @snazz gave you an excellent answer, but I would add that vanilla Emacs has bad defaults, bad defaults being how much the software gets in the way for doing simple tasks, or putting it another way: assuming a basic level of computer literacy, how much a new user would struggle to do basic tasks in comparison to similar applications.

    If all I want is to write code, changing between Intellij Idea, Sublime Text, and VS Code is not much of a problem, all of them behave the same for the most basic tasks, and in some cases they even tell me how can I improve my experience (VS Code and Intellij). But once I add Emacs to the list things aren't as easy.

    Is about evolving and changing how do you see or present yourself, you're not the same person you were 5 or even 1 year ago so why not change it, specially when an avatar can be "the first impression" of the virtual world.

    This is specially true for me on discord where you can set a different username per server, for example in a D&D server I use my character's name, and in language exchange server I use something related to the language, it is also fun when people call you by a different name depending on how they met you. Obviously a name is not an avatar but in this case it's related to what you're asking.

    As a modern emacs user all I always find myself so frustrated with discussions like this, the solutions seem so obvious: sane defaults; better UI; LSP integration; a more intuitive package manager, but nothing ever happens duo to the friction with old users.

    It reminds my a lot of the old blender's UI debate, where new users always complained that the UI was ugly and overcomplicated, but old users always disregarded such complains saying that if it worked for them it should work for everyone else. At some point Blender Guru started to make a lot of noise about creating a new UI, he even created he's own proposal, and then, 6 years later we got version 2.8. I wonder how much of his celebrity status in the blender community contributed to that, and how much was because it was meant to be.

    This is my opinion not a recommendation, but as a programmer I found nodes more intuitive than prefabs, the fact that everything in Godot is a node build on top of other nodes gives the engine a hackable "aesthetic" that I find really attractive, and on top of that it is also open source.

    But the lack of plug-ins in Godot is precisely why Unity is a more attractive alternative, you need to ask yourself what is more valuable: your time, or your money (assuming that some plug-ins are pay).

    P.S. If you decide to use Godot and find yourself in the need of a programmer I'll gladly help, bulding a Choose Your Adventure plug-in for Godot seems like a fun project.
