The Proton Suite

First, a mandatory disclaimer: this is not a sponsored post (there are none in this blog, btw), just me telling the story of how I became a happy Proton user during the past 5 years; I’m not affiliated with them in any way.

Adopting WezTerm

I’ve recently discovered WezTerm, also known as “Wez’s Terminal Emulator” by Wez Furlong, and I’ve adopted it completely, becoming my default terminal application.

FOSS in Developing Countries

The other day, I had friends in Bolivia asking me if they could install Windows on a laptop they got through an NGO that initially came bundled with Linux.


GitHub, BitBucket, GitLab; they are not the only solutions available to share Git repos with your friends and colleagues.

Memories of Centralized SCMs

It might sound incredible to younger developers out there, but there was a time when Git did not exist.

Our Open Source Projects

A quick reminder of our most popular open source projects on Github:

Introducing the Teaching Editor

We are very happy to introduce our latest open source project: the Teaching Editor.

Useful 3rd Party Extensions to CoreTextWrapper

Our CoreTextWrapper project in Github is certainly popular! Many developers have told us that they find it easier to approach Core Text using it, providing an easy learning path, showing the key concepts with an easy-to-use example.

I’ve just committed version 1.2 of nib2objc to Github with the following enhancements:

EasyTableView for iPhone Prototyping

Our first blog post of 2010 presents a tool that we’ve been using internally and that might be useful for other people.

Kevin Smith iPhone Application

Mention on ArsTechnica

Article published by ArsTechnica. A handy open source utility by Adrian Kosmaczewski allows you to convert Interface Builder files to Objective-C code.


(Somehow this project seems to me so simple, that I’m sure someone has done this before.

That Nice Freedom of Modifying Software

One of the best learning tools I have found in my career is to take someone else’s code, and to modify it slightly to see what happens, to play with it, and eventually to release that code in this blog, or send it to the original author, fixing it somehow or adding some feature:


Should you ever have to work on a web application again, just don’t think about it twice; Ext is an amazing piece of free software, light-years away from anything you’ve seen before.

Why do I prefer OpenOffice, NeoOffice, or AbiWord?

About Operating Systems and Networks

“The true operating system is the net itself” This phrase, common marketing argument in the late nineties, made me remind that in the eighties, Sun Microsystems’ founder, Scott McNealy, used the slogan “The Network is the Computer” to describe his vision.

New tools for open source developers - and others as well

The business of software is getting more and more complicated. In your path from coder to developer you might find the need to see if someone out there has already coded what you need, hopefully in an open source project with the right kind of licence for you to be able to reuse it.
