TinkerPop's goal is to accelerate the advances made in the graph computing
space by leveraging the advances made across the entire computing field.
Some teams excel at language development (specifications, compilers, verification),
some teams excel at data storage (distribution, failure handling, consistency),
and finally some teams excel at data processing (load balancing, thread management,
serialization). Apache TinkerPop capitalizes on what each team does best by enabling
the seamless unification of their best efforts into high-end graph computing systems.

Why I think Immediate Mode GUI is way to go for GameDev tools

Why I think Immediate Mode GUI is way to go for GameDev tools


Before you continue, if you don't know what IMGUI is don't bother reading this post, just ignore it, don't write anything in comments section, etc. If you're curious about IMGUI see bottom of this post, otherwise continue whatever you were doing, this post it's not for you. Thanks!

If you know what IMGUI is, for context read following presentations and blog posts:

ffmpeg livestreaming to youtube via Nvidia's NVENC and Intel's VAAPI on supported hardware

Streaming your Linux desktop to Youtube and Twitch via Nvidia's NVENC and VAAPI:

Considerations to take when live streaming:

The following best practice observations apply when using a hardware-based encoder for live streaming to any platform:

  1. Set the buffer size (-bufsize:v) equal to the target bitrate (-b:v). You want to ensure that you're encoding in CBR mode.

  2. Set up the encoders as shown:

A set of instructions on how to fix the harfbuzz + Infinality issue and restoring good-looking, Infinality-like font rendering.

Disclaimer: Please follow this guide being aware of the fact that I'm not an expert regarding the things outlined below, however I made my best attempt. A few people in IRC confirmed it worked for them and the results looked acceptable.

Attention: After following all the steps run gdk-pixbuf-query-loaders --update-cache as root, this prevents various gdk-related bugs that have been reported in the last few hours. Symptoms are varied, and for Cinnamon the DE fails to start entirely while for XFCE the icon theme seemingly can't be changed anymore etc.

Check the gist's comments for any further tips and instructions, especially if you are running into problems!

You can’t perform that action at this time.
