Workflow Compilation 2020 [ongoing] - Desktop Customization & Workflow
stark
It has been a looong time since we did this, so here's to another Workflow Compilation 2020 .

If you have participated in the last two threads (#1 & #2) then you know the drill, if not no worries our savior z3bra got your back ;D

What is it ?
This is a video compiling a bunch of screencast from the nixers members, all performing the same task, but using their personal setup.
this would result in a compilation showing the personal workflow of each participant, and setting a comparison point between them.

Can I participate ?
Sure ! The more videos we get, the better. Just post your submission and we'll add it !

What are the rules ?
1. Nixers will have to perform the tasks in the exact order they are listed (see below).
2. Nixers must use a single monitor for the screencast
3. Nixers' screen resolution should be above 1280x720
4. Nixers submissions should be in webm format
5. Nixers should submit their compilation before 2020-06-17 at midnight (UTC)

How can I record the video ?
The command to use is the following (adjust the resolution to fit your actual setup):

Code:
RESOLUTION=1440x900
ffmpeg -f x11grab -s $RESOLUTION -an -r 16 -loglevel quiet -i :0.0 -b:v 5M -y workflow-compil-${USER}.webm

For those running OSX:

Code:
RESOLUTION=1440x900
ffmpeg -f avfoundation -s $RESOLUTION -an -r 16 -loglevel quiet -i 0:none -b:v 5M -y workflow-compil-${USER}.webm

To end the video, press `q`.

What is the task list ?
  • Put on some music
  • Write some code and push it to a public repo of your choice ( This includes but not limited to services like GitHub, private hostings, etc. but as long as it's under a code repository and available publicly it fits )
  • Send an email to youhavemyc@protonmail.com
  • Take a scrot ( beautify it if you must ) and upload it to a pastebin of your choice
  • Join the IRC at irc.freenode.net/6697 (SSL only) and paste the link to the scrot in #nixers_net

Happy hacking !

All your unicodes belong to me

Yay !! I'm up for it, thanks for starting it again stark ?

How about having a twist on this new edition, rather than just copying the last one ?

We could do some sort of "pass the ball" video, where every user receives an email with a task, showcase it and prepare a task to the next one. This way the whole video would be all nixers asking each other to perform a task. What do you think ?

To do this we'll have to list the names of all participants first. Also, it's going to be much slower as everyone will have to wait for each others.

Is there a limitation on the operating systems allowed in this compilation?

That's true. I don't know if that's something we can do or not then ?

Hopefully not. This is a workflow compilation, not an OS show case.

Hmm. Well people who would participate can drop their email here, if they don't get a reply within 2 days, they can just follow the old ( or a new ? ) task list. How about that ?

I don't think it's a good idea to make this thread a detectable list of valid e-mail addresses.

I agree, let's take that off the table for now. Let's keep the workflow compilation as is, a list of items to execute.
z3bra
Ok, we keep the old way of doing it ! Same tasks ? What is the time limit for submissions ?

How about focusing on one task that might involve multiple one ? Like fixing a "fake bug" (get source, compile, debug, edit) and submitting a patch/PR (formatting patch, sending email/browsing web) ?
jkl
The current list of tasks involves more different tools than I'd like to (at least three different ones).
