What's coming up in imag (22)

This is the 22th iteration on what happened in the last four weeks in the imag project, the text based personal information management suite for the commandline. imag is a personal information management suite for the commandline. Its target audience are commandline- and power-users. It does not reimplement personal information management (PIM) aspects, but re-uses existing tools and standards to be an addition to an existing workflow, so one does not have to learn a new tool before beeing productive again.

2016 github stats

I just found the website githubreportcard.reflect.io which generates github user statistics for 2016. I went ahead and tried it out. And hell yeah, 2016 was a productive year! Of course, I worked a lot on imag, which resulted in a lot of changes. But I also did other things in 2016… and guess what? Rust is not the language I wrote the most code in - at least not by repo count!

33c3

It is over. 33c3 has happened. Post depression already started. Thank you all for beeing there and making congress great again! It really was a pleasure to meet you all and have awesome discussions, seeing awesome people and listening to awesome talks!

Merry Christmas 2016!

Merry Christmas and a happy 33c3! Last year on christmas I posted a blog post as well, so I figured I’ll do it again this year. This year, though, I have a little present for you all and myself. This blog got a new design and is also built with another tool. Why is that? Well, because I wanted to change something. So I ditched frog and opted for hugo.

Setup for linux kernel dev using qemu

I could not think of a better title, I’m sorry. These are notes how to create a kernel which can be booted in qemu and pass a drive to it which has loadable kernel modules. The idea I wanted to play around with the linux kernel and write a minimal filesystem inside the kernel tree. I wanted to boot the kernel in a QEMU, as I do not want to mess with my running kernel.

Breaking the code (without touching)

I managed to break one of my codebase (the master branch) without even touching it. If you think about, the “issue” I ran into is trivial. It really is. Though, I want to write about it because often, these things get too little attention in my opinion. So what did I do? I maintain this project task-hookrs. The project itself depends on a few other crates. I updated these dependencies and then released a new version of my crate.

imag 0.2.0

I did it! Just hours ago I released imag in version 0.2.0. Read here why I did that, despite there are few things working and I do not even consider this stable or even stableish. First of all: This is not production-ready software. Use at your own risk! This is a release for people to notice that some things work and one could start to play around with it. Do not trust imag with your personal data if you do not have backups.
