cloudMarks – was für eine Woche

Letzte Woche habe ich in meiner (viel zu knappen) Freizeit meine erste Applikation für SailfishOS erstellt. Seit dem habe ich in so kurzer Zeit sehr viel gelernt und bin begeistert, sowohl von der ownCloud-, als auch von der Sailfish-Community. Die erste Version konnte eigentlich noch gar nichts, dank vieler vorhandener Beispiele konnte ich aber jeden Tag mit nur wenig Zeit – es war selten mehr […] Read More

Meine erste Applikation für SailfishOS

Am Wochenende habe ich tatsächlich einmal ein privates Softwareprojekt so weit gebracht, dass man es tatsächlich nutzen kann. Schon für meine webOS-Geräte wollte ich immer mal eine kleine Applikation schreiben. Wegen fehlender Zeit und zu wenig Ehrgeiz, mich in die APIs einzulesen, ist daraus aber nie etwas geworden.

This bot has been created […] Read More

webOS – on the rise again?

Since LG presented their (cool!) new Smart-TVs powered by webOS, my beloved operating system is trending again. Reviews were positive in general and one must admin that the system looks very promising. In hope to fuel webOS rising again (at least in social media), I have played around with twitter bots on my MSI Windbox running archlinux and created a little bot retweeting things tagged […] Read More
