      I've put quite a bit of work into my i3 set up recently and I'm curious if the people here are interested in that kind of thing.

      I'd be interested in looking through configs to get ideas, and sharing screenshots and such.

      Here is what my desktop looks like right now. Let me know what you think.

      I'm currently developing a minimal userscript manager who's main goal is to be fully auditable by any user in only ten minutes or so - my prototype uses less than 300 lines of javascript, and I'm trying to keep it that way.

      To get the codebase this small, however, I have to be very picky with what features I implement - most notably, the code editor has to be very barebones. Are there any features that I'd be shooting myself in the foot by not including?

      For example:

      • syntax highlighting
      • cloud sync
      • regex url matching
      • fullscreen editor (currently, it's just a browser popup - the intention is that you write code elsewhere and paste it in)

      Any feedback is greatly appreciated!

      The question mostly says it all, but I will give one of my ideas. I would replace the concept of a holistic app and instead replace it with a loose collection of features. The point would be to allow the end user to build a GUI from elements of multiple apps. You could have buttons that perform multiple functions in multiple apps. It would allow you to streamline and remove remove annoying elements; you could lock interface elements so you don't have to relearn the interface when the devs randomly decide to change it.

      Back in January I asked what programming languages users planned to focus on and the responses were pretty great.

      Of course, back in January we were also on a completely different planet, so I'm curious how well users stuck to their predictions, considering everything that has happened since then.

      So, what programming languages or projects did you focus on in 2020? Did you stay pretty close to the predictions you made earlier this year? Did you end up doing something completely different? Why?

      Meta

      I'm thinking about making this a yearly thing, where in January we talk about our overall predictions for the year, and then in November we come back and reflect on how accurate our predictions were, and why.

      I'm thinking of registering a new domain to host a personal blog and a few other pages that is somewhat separate from my current personal portfolio page, as the blog will likely not be directly relevant to my work. But since this is a more personal project, I want to branch out in terms of TLDs - I've previously used exclusively .com endings as they lead to the least confusion and are the most accepted.

      I'm a little overwhelmed by the number of options these days, so I wanted to take a little straw poll to see which ones people think are the best. The name itself will be my initials "gpxl", and the endings I am considering are

      • .info
      • .xyz
      • .fyi
      • .computer
      • .me

      But I'm curious to see what others think. I would go with .xyz but I feel like then my domain name becomes an unintelligble string of letters - gpxl.xyz, so I'm wondering what others think and what arguments exist for choosing one over another.

      P.S. If anyone has recommendations for registars I'm open to those too. Currently using google domains but open to switching.

      I could have post this on Reddit but in my experience, nothing really happens over there since things are too impersonal.

      I realize that's not an enticing proposition for most people since programmers are usually busy people, but I figure I'd give it a shot. I believe many people that already interacted with me have some idea about my personality. Besides being a stickler for logic, I'm very flexible and eager to learn and make it a habit to force myself to admit when I am wrong. I had to abandon software engineering college because of financial concerns and this hurt me quite a bit, not just because of the content, but because of the social stimulus from my peers.

      I already have some knowledge mostly in Python and basic C algorithms, from the basics until rudiments OOP. Math is not my strong suit, but I don't hate it either and I am very fond of logic (including philosophy). I'm also very good at Googling and reading documentation, so I wouldn't give you too much trouble.

      I'm proficient in Linux/Unix (as an advanced user, not an administrator). I'm comfortable in the command line and an enthusiastic user of Emacs (but I can use whatever you want of course).

      It doesn't even have to be Python, just anything you're comfortable teaching at a beginner level that works on a Mac (and later n a Linux Machine). And is also wouldn't have to be super intensive or frequent, being unemployed (hahaha) I can work around any schedule. I just need some human contact with a nice dude or dudette that cares about imparting knowledge.

      My English is pretty good in writing and understanding but I do have a thick accent -- I believe it's understandable though.

      I'm super shy and video is not a requirement, but it might be nice.

      I'm also a slow learner and have ADHD, so you might need a little patience.

      Anyway, here I am asking for help!

      EDIT: dear Tilderinos, you're awesome and I love you all. I'm also aware of many if not most learning resources for self-didact beginners programmers on the internet -- especially if they use Python. The reason I'm posting this is that I am failing at learning by myself. I welcome ALL suggestions with great gratitude, but this is not the purpose of this thread.

      EDIT2 VERY IMPORTANT!!! I’d be willing to teach Portuguese or anything else I happen to know in exchanging for the tutoring!!!!!!!

      EDIT3:

      Thank you very much everyone. I'm very sorry tor taking so long to answer. I had to make a decision about my study plans for 2020.

      Thing is, back in 2019 I was doing pretty well on a software engineering course at a local private university. But money got tight and I had to drop out. Since then I've been trying to make it on my own, but after more than a year I came to the conclusion that this is simply not going to work. At the university, I was at the top of the class. By myself, I'm a lazy bastard with half the IQ. Go figure.

      So I decided that instead of trying force my way into learning by myself, I'll just study for the Brazilian national exam and get into some great public educational facility that will most certainly provide me a better education for free.

      I took the exam before without studying, and my grade made the cut. So I'm confident that if apply myself this time I'll be able to enter at least one of three major public universities in my city that offer dozens of IT-related courses.

      So I'm laying off from programming until at least January 17 and devoting myself entirely to the exam.

      Cheers!
