🧠 Have you ever meant to reread an email before sending it but then forgot and just sent it anyways?
🍗 Now with Checkpoint you don’t have to worry about it!
🎄 Checkpoint is an extension for Apple Mail that reminds you to reread your emails. Just click a button (or check a box to do it for all emails) and you’ll be on your way!
🚨 Mail started supporting official extensions with macOS Monterey meaning this does not inject stuff into mail and is officially supported!
👁️ The code is pretty messy, it’ll be cleaned up “in the future”(This goes with codejelly's themes of amnesia and reflection)Download it from GitHub: <https://github.com/LinusS1/Checkpoint> or here (in the thread so scrappy doesn't get mad)Look mom, I created a Keylogger!!1!!
I got oauth working on my GitHub app!heyo! It feels good to be back
I enabled exposure notifications on my phone today!

Here’s the computer that I use for school
I had a debate in #apple
Ugh, I feel like giving up my streaks: it feels like it's becoming a chore. :sad_pepe:
Today I had fun with all the instruments Xcode provides
@linus received stickers from @lachlanjc - thanks so much, I love the nasa sticker 💖
Did some more work with Rudolph 👁️ :eye2:
Currently waiting for Heroku to build my swift app ⏳ :boredparrot:
Well I was going through some old cruft on one of my drive and I found this, the last project I did out of Apple's Swift course, which means that I've been doing swift for over a year now! :swift::yay::boomer:
Almost forgot to post today
I’m working on Rudolph more, it’s fun to build a server in :swift: with :vapor:
I'm deploying my swift app to Heroku, which was cool (first time I used Heroku, cool)! Special thanks to @sarthak for doing quite a bit of it (like all it) 👁️
Look at all my dependencies 😎
Haha thanks 2020- giant Asian hornets going into their slaughter phase in Washington.
So... not my work, but an article my mom wrote for Scientific American is currently #5 on hacker news! :ultrafastparrot: ✍️
Apple didn't like my binary :sad_pepe:
Someone also screwed up at apple with the resolution of this Xcode
Building a very big Xcode project
ALSO Y'ALL I JUST GOT TO 100!! 💯
Messing around with vapor :vapor: in swift! :swift:
More poking around the BiometricKitUI private framework...
I disassembled the Tourist framework - it's the annoying little notification that pops up whenever you update to the newest OS. It has some more things going on though than just sending a notification, which I can't figure out.
Dissassembling private apple frameworks - join #linus ~and subscribe~
Disassembling apps: it's pretty fun
I took a nice walk in the rain in the park near my house. I also got into the Apple Schoolwork TestFlight.
I found this cool server side Swift thing: SwiftUI but for slack block kit!
Adding screenshots to my workshop in Python and using Turtle! 🐢 :python:
I totally forgot I had these AWS credits until today :sadparrot:
:yay: After 1 week and 1 day of horrid air quality, I can finally go outside my house again!
I'm screwing around with Swift WebAssembly
Just pushed a new build of NoteThis out :yay: Beta Xcodes kept me from pushing updates over the beta season, but now it feels good to push a new build out even if it's the exact same thing lol. I also gave Theo and Saharsh the spotlight in the release notes.
I didn't do anything interesting today besides school, so here's a picture of some water.
Downloading the GM of Xcode
Ha. Apple releasing iOS 14 tomorrow, and releasing the GM today, and sending me an email about it. :grimace-samsung: ~Time Flies~
Starting the school year off well :dabbing:
Starting the school year off well :dabbing:
I messed around with Core Data and CloudKit more today.
Woohoo! :yay: Today I played with Core Data and CloudKit! In the end I was able to setup an app that uses core data to store the information (dates) and syncs it across 3 simulators, my iPhone, and the CloudKit Dashboard!Look, my city is the first loser! :yay: /s
You’d think they’d already figure things like this out lol.
Working on my CDN app!
Harvested honey from the bees today 🐝 🍯
Welp, second day of school, and some winds brought in some wildfire smoke.
I'm making hcor, the core part of hackagotchi available in Swift. Here's how I'm kind of doing it.
Changed the desktop picture, Now it feels "fresh".
Got my Mac repaired at the Apple Store
Ah yes, the district didn’t realize how much traffic would be going through their vpn for district issued laptops, so it brought the infrastructure down.
Last day of summer vacation for me! :summer-of-making::wom: Here's my streak so far, I hope to keep it going. It's been pretty fun, I got a lot done, and I went climbing more than I thought due to covid.
Started to learn about websockets in Swift today.
Decoding JSON in Swift for GotchiKit!
I'm learning about aws lambda.
Grr... I had to schedule a genius bar appointment for my keyboard.s
And hey, would you look at that, it's notarized! ~Turns out running to the press is the best solution~
Waiting for Apple to notarize a Scrapple update!
Decoding scrappy api data! ~How fun~
Squishing some bugs
It’s coming :yay:
Today I went climbing! It was fun to be out again!

I finally submitted my som list
I think all documentation should be written this way! 😆 (Shoutout to @ced for writing it)
I went on a bike ride today- it used to be a rail road.
Today, @rishi yelled at me (for a very good reason, but we don't talk about that 👀)
Look what I got!
I had to go searching around for awhile because I couldn't figure out how to open a new OS X window in SwiftUI.
I totally forgot that when I store something in the keychain, I also need to get it back out.
I'm working on notarizing my app, it's interesting.
Code signing is so much fun /s
I'm doing some more with sparkle and app signing and notarization.
I'm learning about Sparkle to auto update my app.
Gotta love it when not even the compiler can tell you what's wrong.
I'm pretty high up there...
@kenmueller0’s website is creepy: at least safari blocks it.
I had some fun today with getting my scrappy SwiftUI app to get the slack oauth token to be able to post scrappy updates! It was involved with a lot of moving parts - I had open the default browser, get the auth code back from slack using deep links and had to exchange that for an oauth token, without exposing my client secret (so I couldn't put the secret in the app), then finally putting it in the user's macOS keychain for safe keeping!Why hello, notifications! (This took a bit more effort because dealing with AppKit First responder stuff is annoying)
Here's a sneek preview of what the scrappy menu bar app looks like. This may or may not of come from it. 😉
I'm working on an app that lets you post scrapbook updates right from your menu bar!
I’m cooking some dinner for my family tonight.
I made my own checkmark toggle style in SwiftUI because apple couldn't be bothered to make one.
I'm watching the tech CEO hearing. It's funny sometimes watching them ask CEOs for tech support.
Did some work in our bee hives today... LOTS of bees 🐝, there’s probably over 40,000 bees in each hive this time of year.
More progress on the hackagotchi iOS app! Now the hexagons can move into different formations! Now there's 2 pressing questions we need to ask @ced : api ready when? and standalone client when?Making the hackagotchi ios app
No coding yet today. I had to finish some math I procrastinated on.
Debugging some SwiftUI views. Debugging is espcially fun when the compiler can't tell you what's wrong!
I switched to SwiftUI’s automatic keyboard avoidance.Learned a bit more about the updates in SwiftUI this year. This one is cool: keyboard avoidence, so when the keyboard comes up, users can still see the content.
Today I added in Deep Linking into my Notes App. It was surprisingly easy to do. Now you are able to click a link, and the app will open to that specified note!I made some "pop" art in art in the dark!
I customized my terminal with p10k! Very cool!
Here’s the view from the top of a climb I did today!

Moved to a new camp site on the Olympic peninsula in Washington. On the other side you can see Canada! (👋 @ricey )
Went on a hike, saw a cool tipped over tree
My tent 🏕️
I’m going on a trip this week so I won’t be around much. If you want to contact me you should probably dm me, so I notice.
I’m going to try to keep my streak.
Here’s some photos of me getting on the ferry and the view from the ferry. The buoys in the third photo is part of a scuba driving scavenger hunt: they sunk some stuff like old boats and you can go exploring (I don’t I just know that you can.)
Learning how to build a custom scene in SwiftUI.
More iOS dev
Yesterday I went climbing, today my friend finally sent me some pictures lol.Went climbing today, so not much coding/watching wwdc sessions. I was however looking at the new apple sf symbols today and found... 🥁 Xserve!
With the new SwiftUI I’m able to set the scroll position. This makes the color picker a lot better.I'm submitting radars to apple, lots more to come.
Since updating my whole swiftui app to iOS 14 stuff. I've been able to make some really fun animations! Here's a little look.I shipped this, but... I made a new app for iOS 14! It's called dark matter and lets you have space in your home screen!
Me learning about widgets in ios

It's super duper simple, but there's more to come (with AI 👀 )
I've attached a preview, and here's the link: testflight.apple.com/join/c6TobIvG
