@soapdog Thanks for the update! I've been neglecting gophwr for quite a while by now. I'll make sure to check it out once I get back to it. 😺

@erkin just to let you know that I have implemented tabbed browsing in my #Gemini client. I though you might want to check the code out as it can probably be similar to what you need for the same feature in Gophwr.

Thanks again for Gophwr, I got a lot of code and insight from it.

Shout-out to the folks who keep your Mastodon servers up and running.

How come the majority of graphics software today has significantly worse UX than that of SketchPad?

When I was a student a car ran over my only optical mouse (don't ask). I made this cobbled together mess from the pieces and used it for quite some time afterwards because I couldn't afford a new one at the time

Just a reminder to my fellow scholar.social folks: hope y'all are taking care of yourselves. Cuz academia sure as hell won't.

It's OK to be 'unproductive' sometimes. Tell that guilt to shut its yap.

Also, thanks for making this a cool place to hang.

My little #gemini browser built with #racket is shaping up well. It is still early days but it is getting better and maybe soon it will be a real browser that people can use in their day to day gemini stuff.

Thanks a ton @erkin for showing me your gopher client, that code is teaching me a lot.

What are the words you prefer for authenticating into a system and disconnecting from the system?

Do you like and ? Are you in open revolt against the devilish mainstream internet, renouncing Web 2.0 and all its works?

If you use terminal colours via internet, please hit me up, here or on the textnet. I’m trying to make a central depot for gopher and Gemini colour sites, especially any artists doing ASCII/UTF8/BIG5 &c.

What can I say; I’m a bbs kid. I like CLI text. I like pretty primary colours.

@soapdog Glad to hear I could help. Let me know if you have any questions — the code is rather untidy. I think you might find the parts about style deltas and clickbacks useful in particular (entry.rkt).
I was asked to add gemini support to Gophwr a while ago, but I got busy and had to neglect Gophwr altogether. I'm glad you went ahead and wrote a Racket client for it because I think racket/gui is the perfect tool for this.
And yes, I'd be very much interested in that. Let me know if I can help.

@soapdog
You might be interested in the gopher browser I made last year: github.com/erkin/gophwr

racket/gui is indeed troublesome, mostly owing to being rather underdocumented and having an unorthodox approach to text containers.
