[en] Welcome to euroquis.nl. Originally intended as a site for a European source-code-quality project, it now serves as the hub of my online presence. Most of what happens here goes on on the blog.

  • ARPA2CM released -- some CMake modules

    One of the more broadly-useful things to come out of KDE Frameworks efforts is, in my opinion, the KDE Extra CMake Modules (ECM). Since KDE software nearly-universally uses CMake as (meta-)build system, a lot of common functionality is distilled into the ECM. It makes building KDE software more consistent and generally easier. Inspired by KDE ECM, let me present ARPA2CM, a conceptually-similar set of CMake modules for a different software stack.

  • QuatBot released -- Matrix Meeting Manager

    At Akademy in Milan – I’m pretty sure it was then – I gave a talk about “Managing meeting in Matrix”. The Blue Systems crew has a kind of weekly stand-up over text chat to coordinate things and to keep everyone in the loop. That meeting is managed by a Bot, which I call QuatBot. Only two years after my talk about it, I’ve gotten around to doing an actual release.

  • Year in Review: Calamares

    It’s the start of a new year, which means some retrospective – let’s look at what happened in Calamares in 2021. Calamares is an independent Linux system installer. Independent in the sense that it is developed outside of any specific distribution, but it supports Arch derivatives, Debian, Fedora derivatives, and openSUSE derivatives. KDE Neon and KaOS. Probably Gentoo and Slackware and Nix, also, although I haven’t heard of any. Some day it will install FreeBSD, as well.

  • Year in Review: personal (and GPG)

    It’s the start of a new year, which means some retrospective – Year in Review posts upcoming – but also a new GPG signing key. This is the key I use to sign tags of software I release, such as Calamares, ARPA2CM, and others. It’s also the key I might use to send signed email.

  • FreeBSD on Slimbook -- 14 months of updates

    Time flies when .. other people are doing the work? Something like that, anyway. This is an update to an earlier post, over 18 months old at this point, about FreeBSD on the Slimbook Base 14.
