Jetbrains PyCharm does have an inline documentation feature, which (when invoked via a complex keyboard “shortcut”), produces this gem:
Even when this feature does work, it shows code “documentation” in a monospace font, typically with no usage example or links to other relevant documentation, as is standard in puredata.
Our tools are inadequate.
@julien51 “new” as in not currently in use? Because haptic compass belts are my favourite at the moment
Completed thomaswasalone.com. It’s a really beautiful game — perfect narrative, perfect gameplay, wonderful voice acting, excellent music.
Most multi-character co-op games simply treat the different characters as providing different abilities, but Thomas Was Alone creates meaningful, believable relationships between them, despite them being non-marked, non-emoting rectangles. I enjoyed it even more than Home Sheep Home (the iOS Shaun the Sheep game), which is saying something (I was in the Game Centre top 5% for HSH2 for quite some time).
Another plus: it can be scaled up to retina-display resolution, making those rectangles extremely crisp despite the subtle tilt placed on every level.
#headcanon: bitcoin is simply a random number generator. In every other alternate reality, it went wrong and was de-bunked almost immediately, but we’re in the one where the random numbers always match our expectations, providing the illusion of causality.
“It’s hard to know what to call people… …these terms worked well for users whose mental models fitted the language we were using, they were not well understood by everyone.”
Interesting audience-based navigation research by @gdsteam insidegovuk.blog.gov.uk/2014/07/18/hey-you-there-the-trouble-with-audience-based-navigation reflects similar recent experiences with @indiewebcampUK guest list audience segmentation.
Packing in preparation for moving next week. Any aliens watching would be forgiven for assuming I’m a monk following some cable-worshipping religion.

xkcd.com/1412 TMNT Wikipedia song fits Finnish runo-song metre perfectly, could be sung to any runo-song tune. Vice versa also applies, runo-song epics could be sung to the TMNT theme tune
@anna_debenham hrm, an interesting idea, I wonder how they plan on measuring how long people read for though?
@thatemil what, by making it so large that the elements come out of the screen and go behind the user? Can that be animated?
tradition.is was thoroughly enjoyable and filled with excellent music+dancing — met new friends, learned new tunes+dances+singing styles and generally had a good time. Longer blog post upcoming, for now here’s my post-festival #tabdump:
Not all necessarily related to the festival, but learned about in the duration. Amusingly, last.fm/music/BLM has a big photo of the BLM which performed at tradition.is, but is about someone completely different!
@schussman great work getting webmention comments set up on your site, and thanks for the kind words about my microformats2 blog post — good to know it was helpful :)
Checked into Háskóli Akureyri for tradition.is workshop day two
@aaronpk oooh really? Which libraries? I looked a while ago and couldn’t find any, though it looks like it can be done with the new Web Audio APIs…
