I've written my first Rust library! ๐Ÿฆ€

It's called fakedata_generator and I just released v0.2.0 yesterday!

It's a small lib that can generate random strings for you, e.g. random cat breeds or random dinosaur names or (very limited) domain and e-Mail names.

It's in its early stages but can be used as is!

Code: github.com/kevingimbel/fakedat

Developers who prevent users from pasting text into a password field deserve a special place in hell.

Seriously what the fuck are they even thinking when they implement bullshit like that. Don't they know that password managers are a thing?

I usually ate bread in the morning but I'm trying to switch to muesli and fruits to eat more healthy.

health pro tip:

If you eat muesli in the morning, chuck in some sesame seeds, chia seeds, and/or puffed amaranth. All healthy little additions and they taste wonderful!

I just published a new crate and CLI tool: passt

passt is a good-enough random string/password generator written in Rust, with zero dependencies! (Does require /dev/urandom tho)

Anyway, it can be used as a library or installed as CLI.

I spent all night trying to get zsh auto completion for my rust cli working but it's just utterly broken.

The zsh code that clap-rs generates just didn't work no matter what I did.

In the end I had to use the auto generated bash code in zsh, which zsh luckily supports. ๐Ÿคทโ€โ™€๏ธ

I've entered a Grimes phase.

Really love her music, looking forward to hearing her in Cyberpunk 2077!

Still having the biggest crush on Brody Dalle.

Like, fuck me, she's hot. Her voice, her guitar playing, her punk years and now her slower and more melodic music. ๐Ÿ˜

I've used a ansible playbook to setup (and upgrade!) my server and it has been soooo pleasant to work with. It does a ton of things and "just works".

I've got an iPhone 7 from work but in direct comparison to the Pixel I'm using privately the camera is no match.

iPhone 8 and newer are all quite expensive, too.

iPhone SE2 would be interesting but it's also expensive and I don't want to get it with a 2 year contract or anything like that.

I'm looking for a new and I'm unsure what to get.

I want:
- long software support (at least 4ish years)
- good camera
- preferably not Android

I'm currently using a Pixel (first gen) and the camera is still super good but the phone is getting slower and feels bad overall.

Since I'd like to get away from Google the Pixel 4a is no option.

I'd be okay with switching to an iPhone but even older models are quite expensive.

Any ideas?

I deleted Reddit from my phone and put the Duolingo App in it's place so every time I'm bored and want to open Reddit out of habit, I'm actually opening Duolingo and then do a Spanish lesson.

Shout out to my wireless mouse who's been signaling an empty battery for 5 days now and is still going strong.

I recently found Jack Blacks YouTube channel "Jablinski Games" where he posts gaming stuff as well as Tenacious D tour videos.

Super entertaining and fun!

I tried Fall Guys and it's fun.

It's also free with this month if you have a PlayStation 4 and are an active PS Plus subscriber.

The concepts discussed in the article are not limited to Rust.

You can do the same with or any other compiles-to-binary language.

I blogged! ๐Ÿ“

"Shipping Rust CLIs with docker"

A guide on how you can build Rust binaries, package them in docker, and then distribute and run them as if they were "normal" CLI tools.
