[Microblog] Transient Thought

"To suddenly exist must be a terrifying thing,"

My thought, brought to you in part by the philosopher E and the new baby U.

[Microblog] This is what it means to be cool


[Technology] "Error: Unsupported type void, deriving from fundamental void"

I have an issue trying to use GHashTable as a property in an introspected GObject from Javascript (using gjs).  I was trying to create a test case, but I encountered this when trying to construct my object from gjs:

"Error: Unsupported type void, deriving from fundamental void"

The object was dead-simple, and derived from GObject, so I wasn't sure what the problem was.  Ultimately, it turned out that that was gjs's way of telling me it didn't have a definition for my constructor.  Yikes.  Ultimately, I had to specify a 'shared-library' attribute for the 'namespace' element in the .gir and .typelib files that gjs was using for introspection.  I wasted a couple hours trying to figure that out.  Whee.

For now, I filed a bug, 706906, requesting a useful error message when definitions aren't found, rather than ambiguously complaining about void types.

Writing the Object and test file

First I created a quick object using Vala for my test case.
namespace Foo {
    public class Bar : GLib.Object {
        public GLib.HashTable hashtable { get; set; }
        public Bar () {
            this.hashtable = new GLib.HashTable (GLib.str_hash, GLib.str_equal);
Well, that was quick.  Next I wrote a small .js file
const Foo = imports.gi.Foo;
var bar = new Foo.Bar ();

Compiling the Vala object and introspection files

Of ourse, first you'll need to compile your shared library, Foo.
valac --library=foo --gir=Foo-0.1.gir --vapi foo.vapi -H foo.h -g Foo.vala -X -fPIC -X -shared -o libfoo.so
If you try to run test.js now, it won't find the library and will report the error:

"Requiring Foo, version none: Typelib file for namespace 'Foo' (any version) not found"

To access Foo via introspection, we'll of course need to compile the .typelib too!
g-ir-compiler --shared-library=libfoo.so Foo-0.1.gir --output Foo-0.1.typelib

If you don't specify the name of the shared-library, that's when you'll see the earlier error, "Error: Unsupported type void, deriving from fundamental void" when trying to actually use the objects from gjs, as they're defined, they're only declared through their typelib

If you still see the Typelib file not found, it might not be in your GI_TYPELIB_PATH, so you might want to set that.  Lots of typelibs get installed to /usr/lib64/girepository-1.0/.  For my test case, I set GI_TYPELIB_PATH=. since my typelib is in the current directory.

GHashTable properties: the original problem

Now all I need to do is find a solution to my original problem, "Error: Unable to introspect element-type of container in GValue", where I can't access a GHashTable as a property. :\  (Now bug 706907)

It's nice to be back in Terranova


[General] Grand Discovery

I have just discovered that the Rockwood Conservation Area is only a one hour bicycle ride away from Guelph's downtown, and allows camping.  I feel like I've wasted so many years worth of camping and hiking opportunities.  But no more.  I'm going to try to get a visit in this week, or as soon as I return from Newfoundland in two weeks.  WHEE.

[GNOME] Providing feedback on patches and branches

awesome advert:
Did you know that GXml has a mailing list now?  gxml-list at gnome dot org!
Finding time to review
A week before GUADEC, the spectacular Daniel Espinosa let me know of work he's doing on GXml serialization in a new branch.  Sadly, it's taken me three weeks to provide adequate feedback.

There were three obstacles to this. 
  1. having my HP tc4400 laptop (her name was clarity, after Claire Danes) die shortly thereafter.  
  2. going to GUADEC (there was a lot of new work to do while there!)
  3. my thesis (sadly, I don't have my summer totally free)
  4. other GSOC goals
I feel like such a long delay, even if the causes seem reasonable, is terrible for encouraging good contribution's like Daniel.  I'm lucky Daniel is currently  motivated and has goals.

Doing the review

Because the new work is on a branch, and the changes are a bit extensive, it was a bit challenging keeping track of all the changes.  That's opposed to a set of smaller patches or contained changes, which I might be able to analyse in parts.  Because of cross-file changes and some code-reorganisation, I ended up using emacs ediff and some hand-editing to ease my comparison.  Sometimes changes look bigger on the outside, until you realise that fundamentally a lot of the new logic is the same.

I finally ended up spending about 5 hours reviewing it, which feels a little excessive, and I hope I get better at it.  As a graduate teaching assistant at my university, I'm used to reviewing students' code (which is more predictable and less complex).  I think one problem is that I didn't want to miss anything; I feel as though a quicker and sloppier review might actually be preferable for its quicker return time, than having a thorough and careful one that takes forever to find the time to start.

Providing feedback

One of the hardest parts is providing meaningful and friendly resistance to changes.  I want to make sure that changes are safe (smaller and more precise ones are preferable to minimise new bugs) and necessary (changing APIs without a clear benefit is painful for existing developers), but I don't want to overly discourage a submitter.

I tried to ask specific questions about the motivations behind certain changes, and tried to propose smaller changes that could accomplish the same purpose.

Hopefully I will prove more responsive in the future and Daniel's work will improve GXml's serialization support. :D

Advice from you

I'd appreciate any advice you have for reviewing code and encouraging submitters.  I heard that cursing at contributors works well for some well-known maintainers, but I don't think GXml is quite popular enough to afford that level of abuse. :)

[Microblog] Transient Stupidity

I hope my stupidity is transient.  After 30 minutes of Googling and dialing seemingly random numbers, I still have no idea how one books or takes a G1 test.  I find lots of references to needing to get my G1 before I can test for a G2/G, and lots of ways to book a G2/G road test, but nothing to sit down and write a stupid exam.  GAR.

[General] Camera Obscura

Yesterday at the Cornerstone, they were playing music by one of my favourite bands, Camera Obscura, and that filled me with joy.


[GNOME] GUADEC 2013: Talking Heads

I survived my trip through Toronto, Amsterdam, and Prague to Brno. I'm becoming pretty good at flowing through foreign countries without saying a word. I'd like to thank the GNOME Foundation for making this possible:

The four days of talks have ended, and it's been honestly amazing.  Here are my thoughts on the ones I attended and liked.  (Let me know if you find any errors.)


The annual general meeting was informative and entertaining, as usual. It's nice to know we can have fun while getting serious business done. Some neat things I learnt is that there's a pre-built image for virtual machines with a complete jhbuild available to download. Also, there's now HowDoI on the GNOME Wiki. For localisation, 52 languages have over 80%. Outreach has helped increase participation of women in the GNOME project. We also got to hear about GNOME Asia and GNOME India. From the foundation report, the privacy campaign was a good success. Noted was that this September will be the 30th anniversary of the GNU Project!


Ethan Lee on gaming in Linux

Ethan works on porting popular indie games to Linux. It's great seeing more games available on Linux through the Humble Indie Bundle and Steam for Linux. Game availability is one of the few remaining barriers, so it was nice to hear from someone working with games on Linux about challenges there and what we can do to help facilitate it.

Endless Mobile

Endless Mobile wants to get a smartphone and eventually a computer to most of the world. They're targetting the market segment of people who can afford to live in their area but can't really afford a computer, because while many items are priced locally, electronics are largely priced globally, and a typical device can exceed a potential customer's annual earnings.
So, simple devices, near Raspberry Pi price levels and capability, with intelligent, great design built atop free software. The hardware has a stylised appearance, and a core part of their value is their app collection, which is embodied not of fun entertainment, but a lot of practical software, which can help with cooking, farming, business, education, etc.


ZaReason, proprietor of Linux laptops and desktops, came to discuss their goals (provide great, open computers that work well), their challenges (hardware that restricts freedom), and encourage GNOME to continue to promote a Free ecosystem. They had some of their hardware, and I was thrilled by its light weight.


Colin Walters on GNOME OSTree

GNOME OSTree is being actively used for continuous integration, on a 32-core, 48GBRAM machine. It's working great for testing patches and git commits as they happen, resulting in quick detection of errors, and helping improve the overall stability of the stack it tests. It focuses mostly on the OS and not so much on apps, though it does have a concept of profiles (sets of packages) with some including apps, for development and testing purposes. Could help provide atomic updates and easy rollback, and help decouple the OS from apps.

Fabiana Simões on how not to report User Experience bugs

Fabiana helped emphasise that UX (User Experience) bugs are important, even if they don't prevent software from compiling and running. Evaluating user experience issues can be challenging, and encouraging good UX bug reporting is helpful. Highlights include not to use the following useless phrases:
  • "I think X should be Y"
  • "It sucks/it's not user friendly/intuitive"
  • "Most users …" without doing actual research
There were also some recommendations on information users should provide regarding a user experience bug, including what they were doing, why they were doing it, what steps they took, what were they expecting, and what happened. What the user felt, saw, and did are important.

Meg Ford on GNOME in Open Source communities

I didn't catch this entire talk, but was interested in Meg's points regarding inclusiveness and exclusive attitudes. It's sad to hear about issues regarding overt discrimination and sexism. I enjoyed the activity surrounding small local groups like in Chicago.

Lennart Poettering on Sandboxed Applications for GNOME

This was a delicious talk, touching quite a bit on systemd and the future of applications in GNOME. Basically, isolation for stability and security, with support in the kernel and through cgroups to help control apps. Single files bundling apps from the user's point of view, actually a compressed multiarch loopback filesystem, optioning containing their own versions of libraries to avoid library version dependencies in the OS. App distribution through community stores, not a single canonical source. Unprivileged installation. kdbus for controlled IPC of even large data between apps and the system or even other apps, and Portals, intents-like method of providing interactive security around this. The need for a stricter hierarchy file system spec and reduce some distribution differences.
I'm really excited about how this will change my interactions with my computer.

Juan Pablo Ugarte on building UIs in Glade

Juan gave a pretty presentation showing recent work for CCS support in Glade, with pretty things like gradients, shadows, animations, etc. A demo of a Baccarat game helped demonstrate just how completely you can style your windows and widgets. To my great delight, he then revealed that the presentation was actually built using Glade itself! And was being run by the new Glade Previewer. (Disclaimer: Glade is not intended to efficiently build beautiful presentations, though it can.)

Lightning Talks

Some non-comprehensive highlights were that EasyTag, the audio tagger, has seen some recent activity again. Boxes has had work on copy-paste between host and guest and usb redirection. The gettext maintainer, Daiki Ueno, came, and it's seem some exciting new features like support for GtkBuilder, Vala, Lua, and Javascript, as well as multiline strings. Work for systemd in the user session advances the cause of the faster login. Also, the Cantarell font has seem some refinement. There was a lot more.

Philip Withnall on testing web services

Philip helped address problems with testing against web services, with the unpredictable nature of dealing with a remote host. The solution appears to be recording a trace of normal activity for your operation, and then testing against that rather than the remote server itself.


The future of open source cloud services is growing rapidly and the cool keeps flowing. Syncing of files, calendars, and contents. Integration with GNOME Online Accounts. To come is integration with Documents, Notes, tentatively RSS, Maps, Music, mail, bookmarks, and more. Syncing should be comprehensive enough to eventually include settings, dot files, etc, so you could restore a lost installation from your ownCloud. Vitally, Mines' high scores. For security, the client could encrypt data before arriving at the server, but if you do this, some apps won't work well (since they can't read your data). Right now, I think it's something I'd like to run within my own VPN for privacy, practically providing me with a 'Google in a box'.

Emmanuelle Bassi on Clutter

The state of Clutter was discussed, along with a proposal to move more functionality into Gtk+. There was a bit of technical discussion during the talk and interested parties generally liked the idea.

Tristan van Berkom on Glade and GtkBuilder's UI developer experience

Tristan showed off some long-desired improvements to Glade and GtkBuilder. He talked about the use in guiding users (here: developers) on the right path, with the idea of improving the tie-in between GtkBuilder and actual class code, especially regarding callbacks and such. Also, you can finally click-and-drag UI elements onto the graph (whee!) and intelligent grouping of widget properties by section.

Matthias Clasen's guide through GtkApplication

Matthias led us through a new tutorial of how to build a modern GtkApplication, emphasing important parts like application-id, embedding of resources into the binary, using templates and new macros. Demonstrated was newer candy like GActionMap, GSettings, templates, GtkStack, GtkSearchEntry and Bar, GtkRevealer, GtkListBox, GBindings, and more. Wow!


The conference has been really amazing. I'm surrounded by my greatest programming heroes and have gotten to be immersed in the shared excitement over GNOME's future.
I'm looking forward to the talks next year in Strasbourg, and the Boston Summit in Montréal this October.
