Open Recall: Emacs on Android, Bootstrap, Whammy and Smuxi
- Emacs for Android – GNU/Emacs has been ported to Android and is now available from the Google Play store. Currently, the application is not optimised for phone use and requires a tablet-sized display and a hardware keyboard. Emacs for Android is built on top of a modified version of Android Terminal Emulator and includes BusyBox and eshell. Build scripts to compile the application from the GNU/Emacs sources can be downloaded from GitHub.
- Twitter Bootstrap 2.1 – Twitter has released an incremental update to its Bootstrap framework, which includes completely reworked documentation with a bigger emphasis on live examples and shorter explanatory text. Over one hundred bugs were fixed. Bootstrap is a web framework that allows developers to get a head start on creating sites and applications by providing popular components and interaction styles.
- Smuxi 0.8.10 – The developers of Smuxi, an irssi-inspired, GTK-based IRC client, have released a new version that brings several new features to the software, including inline spell checking, indentation of multi-line messages and more commands. Smuxi also provides a server component that can be installed on a system that is connected to the internet at all times, enabling several clients to connect to the server daemon. This replaces the traditional model of opening irssi in a screen session on a server and connecting to it over SSH.
