I'm thankful for being able to make my app a little less fugly in just a couple hours of work :). Decent looking enough I don't mind sharing a screenshot even. #dotnet #avaloniaui #linux

For mysql the solution was to restart from scratch to produce MariaDB and php-mysql is dead. To bad for old site that must be recoded.
that happened when oracle bought mysql.

but this is another question.

Well, MariaDB wasn't done from scratch. They included stuff from MySQL as well. And it was a good decision to let php_mysql die. PDO is a much more general and more object driven variant. BTW: I really would hope that php_mysqli will be deprecated in the near future as well.

do you realize that the more abstract is the code, the more cpu you use. Do you realize that we run for a lowtech and low-consumption hardware and software because of climate change thus those meta-mega libs are not so clever ?

Le'ts construct a lib that open with the same code, whatever database, plain text, pdf, docx, odt, .indd, .svg, .xml , url, html, clever ? with large object and let's go for I24 256 cores.

object variant in non connected mode.. such a good idéa : each request object are created and destroyed. very very smart. no pdo is not that clever : you trade abstraction for performance. fast development more cpu.

do you know that ovh had to improve there infra just because every body use wordpress for a large bunch of statics pages recalculated each visit ?



Microsoft is doing a #dotnet survey on cross platform development. Now that I have a real solution for that thanks to #AvaloniaUI I was very happy to put in my thoughts on it :)





I woke from a dream where the #diaspora API was being deployed (which I think may actually be happening soon, right #diaspora-dev ?) so I revived my website comments system based on the API, polished up the #kotlin implementation, and then also wrote a #dotnet version so I could make an #fediverse app in #AvaloniaUI . Yeah I'm in a coding mood :).

yep, it should happen soon ;)



Want to use a TreeView control in #avaloniaui #dotnet? Here is a tutorial on the ins and outs of using it:



A tutorial on getting started with DataGrids in Avalonia #avaloniaui #dotnet



First article on using grid layouts for creating #avaloniaui #dotnet interfaces



A follow-up article on binding button commands/status in #avaloniaui #dotnet



There are several ways to wire up #avaloniaui #dotnet buttons. Here is a comprehensive tutorial I put together on the topic as part of a series of tutorials I am writing on introducing Avalonia to new developers.



After a week of deep diving into #AvaloniaUI I have a lot of personal progress, a couple hurdles to overcome, but a direction forward for how I want to contribute and use it to make truly cross platform #dotnet software



Really stoked about the last two days deep dive into #AvaloniaUI on #dotnetcore . Looking forward to writing up some examples for some controls, updating docs, and building a demo project to show off capabilities realworld-ishly.

Just finished the #AvaloniaUI tutorial solely under #linux #dotnetcore and leveraging #JetBrains Rider. Pretty pleased. Hope to get a blog write up out soon on experience and thoughts on the tech in general. Overall thumbs up!
