Some pretty neat stuff from +Michael Hall on +Ubuntu OnAir!

"If you're a stats person I do have some interested numbers for you. The number of apps, the number of app developers and the number of app downloads from our store has been doubling every six months consistently since we started keeping track of it, back late 2013." 

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=47GczsHH9aI
(Around 9.30)

"So we are currently at around like 1800 apps in the app store and you can do the maths there if we continue this trend of doubling, but again we have for quite some time now, we are growing fast and we will very soon have a pretty sizable number of apps available to users." 

So pretty much +Michael Hall says that when Ubuntu desktop edition with Unity8 comes out for use (perhaps on 16.04 as alternative), it will have like more than 4000 apps available, since mobile and desktops apps are shared.. It is so WOW!

The numbers concern Ubuntu Touch apps, and a large number of those are mostly like "demos", or web-apps, or apps not really useful to desktop, but still..

That feature is on Gnome Terminal like for ever, but I never thought to use it that way! 

So we can simply get different Shells per profile! Super super awesome!

To those that don't do JS developing, but they still use JS programs. And there are really cool JS console programs! Node is the next GNU tools :p

DO NOT use NodeJS from your distro package manager. It will lead you to all weird issues. It can install commands with the same names as other programs, it will need admin privileges to install Node programs (npm install -g app), & your Node applications won't run efficiently, or might don't run/installed at all. 

Instead use a Node Version Manager. This is what I use:
https://github.com/creationix/nvm

There are more managers, but all do pretty much the same. They set runtime paths & the Node programs under your $HOME. You can select multiple versions, you can set a default version, you can update, remove & so on. 

Again, installing Node from your distro packages is bad. Use a Node Version Manager is good :p

That ofc applies to more environments. Go, Ruby, Python. Try to do system isolated installations whenever is possible!

Yeah installing everything globally is generally a terrible idea. I basically only keep a handful of things I use constantly in the global cache - Mocha, Chai, Express, and a few other utilities.

Pretty sure it is still Bash :/

Preferable scripting language for Linux things?
(Just "typical" scripting )

+Dragos Cirjan Yes portability is an issue. Every machine has bash. But the question was actually whats your preferred language, not what are you forced to use :)

I see so many huge scripts, spawning so many commands for parsing text, or other files operations.. and I feel like "Guys, there is JS, simpler, safer, probably faster too!" 

Not to mention that you can save & distribute (if you want) your scripts on NPM registry!

That's the way to change backgrounds! A more dictatorship model than the current, that will pick the wallpaper for you :)

But seriously, just a simple illustration of RobotJS, with the user unable to interact till automation is finished.

Using Cinnamon a bit lately, and while it has many annoyances (who hasn't?!), it does make you wondering. Why some 2nd generation Linux desktops, drop the traditional bottom bars?

It makes sense on small devices, but on desktop? Why?

+Michael Mistretta There is no such thing as personal preference, that's un-important! I mean Gnome (& rest) is designed for everyone, not for personal preferences :)

Yeap Gnome activities is still the strongest point of Gnome, but I think there is much space for improvements on other elements. Talking from UI point of view.

A small theming change on Gnome Shell. Shell dialogs buttons are going to scale full width on the parent container. It is actually a logical change, since GTK already does that, plus Gnome Shell notifications also do that. 

https://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=746108

The patches aren't on master, and in general whatever is on development version before beta release, may change, so don't consider those as final.

Personally I understand the change as a part of the "big picture", but perhaps full width components aren't easy to be controlled, leading to aesthetic imbalances (some small, some big). Think of the huge tabs when you DnD them, or Gedit save dialog.

But anyway, in Gnome Shell they seem okay!

Small hint. If you're using Pantheon Terminal, you can change fonts and fonts size from DConf-Editor. For example in case you use PowerLine that needs custom fonts. 

eg.
gsettings set org.pantheon.terminal.settings font "Inconsolata-dz for Powerline Medium 11"

There is also an option to set the default Shell! So basically you can use Gnome Terminal with Bash and Pantheon Terminal with another shell by default. A small convenience :)

Not sure if I should post this, but whatever! That's a work in progress for a new Gnome default theme! 

And NO! It's not MD!

OBVIOUSLY that was a joke! GNOME isn't creating such theme. That's a 3rd party theme!

+Michael Mistretta It's a bit more complicated though! I mean it's cool to have people reading your posts, but it's not in my "top wanted" list! A Ferrari is more wanted, and posting isn't helping :p 
See? I just live for the simple things in life ..that money can buy :)

Probably too early to say, but The Qt Company (Digia) should be nominated as the most "significant" Linux desktop company for 2015!

It's funny how open source technology changes so fast, and turns things upside down. Wondering what 2016 will bring!

+John Layt Alright, since you're Qt contributor I'll trust your judgment on this matter. So I removed that part from the original post. Besides, personally I only care for being open source. The rest sound kinda details to me :)

RobotJS is a desktop automation library for Node, supporting Linux, Windows, OS X.

https://github.com/octalmage/robotjs

In this example, Robot will move the cursor down 100px and activate left click!

I told my computer to call me in 5! ..But it was just an expression of speaking. It was more like 6 or 7!

Should we start report bugs on those? :p
