  • Robot grappling-magnet platformer Get-A-Grip Chip is out now and I'm hooked | GamingOnLinux

    A platformer where you can't jump? Well, it's been done before but not quite like this. Get-A-Grip Chip is out now and it's a wonderfully unique indie game worth your time. Note: key sent by the developer.

    Thing is, grappling hooks have been done before too, and there's a number of excellent games with it. Get-A-Grip Chip is still different though, as the grapple is a big magnet on your robot head and you can only use it at specific points. The challenge here is getting in range of each point, to hop between them all. The result is a game that's seriously charming, while also proving to be a good challenge.

  • GDScript progress report: Typed instructions

    It's been a while my last report because this particular task took me more time than I anticipated. GDScript now got a much needed optimization.

    Bug fixes

    Between my last report and this one I've been fixing many bugs in GDScript. While not thorough, it should be stable enough to not crash all the time. I am aware that a lot of bugs remain, but I'll iron them out when the features are complete.

    As I said before, if you found a bug not yet reported make sure to open a new issue so I can be aware of it.

    [...]

    I know many of you have been waiting for this. GDScript has had optional typing for quite a while, but so far it had only been for validation in the compilation phase. Now we're finally getting some performance boost at runtime.

    Note that some optimized instructions are applied with type inference but to enjoy the most benefit you have to use static typing for everything (you also get safer code, so it's a plus).

Support your work-life balance with this open source productivity tool

Super Productivity is a to-do app for people that spend a lot of their time working from a computer. Its philosophy is that disciplined, focused work and cutting yourself some slack benefit from each other, rather than being on opposite sides of the spectrum. The app offers everything you would expect from a modern to-do app. It adds various little (optional) helpers to nudge you in the right direction to establish good work routines—whether you're working way too much without taking a break or leaning too hard on your dirty little procrastination habits and not getting done what you need to do.

9 Open Source Forum Software That You Can Deploy on Your Linux Servers

Just like our It’s FOSS Community forum, it is important to always build a platform where like-minded people can discuss, interact, and seek support. A forum gives users (or customers) a space to reach out for something that they cannot easily find on the Internet for the most part. If you are an enterprise, you may hire a team of developers and build your own forum the way you want but that adds a lot of cost to your budget. Fortunately, there are several impressive open source forum software that you can deploy on your server and you’re good to go! You will save a lot of money in the process and still get what you need.
