I just can’t let things stay default, I don’t know why. I want to know every single setting, keybinding and customization I can do with any program I use. I tend to spend quite a bit of time watching videos about tips and tricks about everything.
Some examples are these:
On my screen keyboard. turning off keypress pop-ups, swiping the backspace button to delete words or the space bar to drag the cursor around.
On Tusky, the Mastodon client, disabling the top bar and moving the navigation buttons to the bottom. Also enabling its amoled dark mode, adding custom tabs, etc.
Saving comics as .cbz in Tachiyomi, setting up local manga sources for offline reading and enabling automatic backups.
Enabling custom colors in DAVx5 for my synced calendars, changing the audio stream for reminders in Simple Calendar so I can turnoff normal notifications and not miss events.
Grouping direct sub-folders in Simple Gallery and enabling rounded corners for the thumbnail style.
Disabling all automatic downloads for media in apps like Signal or WhatsApp to save space.
Creating subscription groups on Newpipe and custom tabs for specific channels.
Using tags on AntennaPod, setting up auto-download for new episodes of specific podcasts, auto-deletion, skipping intros, etc.
Installing a Magisk module to allow storage access to restricted folders so I can sync them with Syncthing.
Using Newsboat as a client for my FreshRSS instance
Setting up Neomutt for email and integrating with CardDAV using khal and vdirsyncer
Enabling themes and custom css on Firefox to setup a onliner interface.
And these are some features on many different apps that I just enjoy having around and I can’t help but keep tweaking all the time
Blogs should be the way we communicate on the internet, not social networks.
And the one I am sharing today is a simple and enjoyable one. I would like to see more of them.
