New Post: Libadwaita in the Wild

It’s hard to believe, but Libadwaita is not even one year old, having first been released on December 31, 2021. With that in mind it’s pretty remarkable how widely adopted it is today. Between the majority of GNOME core and Circle apps having already been ported, the many new third party apps, and even all GNOME Shell extension settings, Libadwaita is everywhere today.

Nice article Tobias! The Paper application you mentioned seems like it is exactly what I was looking for in my thread about text editors. I’m giving it a whirl now. Thanks for highlighting it.

It looks kind of like what I use Joplin for now.
Joplin sorta works on the L5 screen with screen scaling but it isn’t great (I haven’t checked in many months though).
But also, it’s a bulky Electron app, even runs slow on some of my PCs.

If it is possible to sync these files via WebDAV or really any means, I may be using Paper too.

Edit: From the Gitlab README: “By default, notes are stored in ~/.var/app/io.posidon.Paper/data,
but that can be changed in preferences”.
Simple enough, that I can sync manually :).

Yeah I like Joplin, but I like the lightweight nature of Paper as well. I think for the form factor it is pretty excellent. Spell correct is the only feature I think would be great to see in Paper.

Hello. Very cool. I like Libadwaita.

However, can I be a naysayer and point-out that Flatpak can cause a lot of system bloat. I just cleaned up about 16GB of bloat due to Flatpak and had to uninstall all my apps.

Can we get some of these developers to use the PureOS store? Can someone explain the basis for having to rely on Flatpak/Flathub?

I do not like Flatpak either, so i must install the application from source manually.

That is where I was heading with things too.
