Cawbird now displays the Twitter user profile screen, among this week's GNOME highlights

Cawbird on Debian GNOME

There was a time when day after day too I was looking for what would be the best option to use Twitter on Linux. At the time I edited Franz to use it together with WhatsApp, Telegram and Gmail, among others, but now I have gotten used to doing it from the browser, since practically all of them are compatible with notifications and the web version is very similar to that of the devices mobiles. But there was a time when it was not so clear to me, something that this week's article reminded me of GNOME.

And it is that, among its novelties, they mention one of cowbird, one of the clients I tried at the time. Taking into account what both Windows and some macOS clients or mobile devices offered, Cawbird knew little to me, but today it has been shown that he was not dead (he was partying).

This week in GNOME

This week, GTK4 and libadwaita have arrived in the GNOME tweaks app. The project assures that it has been a very large "port", with more than 330 files rewritten or adjusted with a GTK4 base. Everything, removing three panels, has been moved to GTK4, but it will not stay that way; They are already working to finish the full port.

As for two softwares with "lib" in their names, libadwaita finally documents styles classes and named colors that their stylesheets provide, and in GLib a bug with the remapping in g_spawn _ * () has been fixed. Already in a less internal topic, a new chapter in gtk4-rs book which explains how to style applications with CSS. On the other hand, the GNOME developer documentation page has a new style guide for writing developer docs with consistency with things like API references and tutorials.

But among the highlights we have that Cawbird can now display the user profile pages, and that the new Burn-My-Windows extension GNOME Shell allows you to disintegrate applications the old-fashioned way, that is, with a burning effect.

And that's been it for this week at GNOME.
