Outreachy Recap 2023
Making GNOME Platform Demos
Hello! I didn't blog nearly as often as I should have, but I'm here now to give a comprehensive report of the work I managed to get done this summer! This has been such a rewarding experience, and I do not intend for this to be the end of my GNOME Contributions. I hope you all see more of me in the FOSS world.
Had a ton of fun and got a lot done with these awesome individuals.
If you don't know what it is, please download it already. It is such a useful tool to have at your disposal.
Below are bulleted lists of Workbench Library entries and other contributions done in part by me.
User Interface Demos
Text and Label Demos
Buttons and Menu Demos
GTK CSS Example
Preview Screenshots now copy to clipboard \o/
Added new Libadwaita 1.4 widgets to older demos
HTTP Request Demo
Split File Dialog Entry into 3 Separate Demos
What I've Learned
I love working with GTK4 and Libadwaita. It allows us to create such beautiful and forward-thinking applications. The GNOME HIG is top-tier.
I need to ask for help when stuck.
How to write using Markdown, using that right now ;)
How awesome open-source development is.
I've learned what I want to do for the rest of my life. I want to contribute, even if I'm not the best at it or if life gets in the way. I might as well use what little skill I have to give back. The only appropriate attitude to wealth is to share it, and my coffers are filled with GNOME Documentation now.
What I Need to Do
Fix the Drop Zone entry
Get more involved in the community as a whole
Thanks and see you soon!
I also completed a libmanette entry. libmanette is a simple GObject game controller library. The entry is functional, but libmanette is currently in need of a maintainer.
