Hi, I am Schmiddi. I am currently studying computer science at the University of Passau.
What I am Working on
Currently, my main projects are:
- Flare, an unofficial Signal client
- Tubefeeder, a GTK4 YouTube, PeerTube and Lbry frontend
- DieBahn, a GTK4 frontend for the travel information of the german railway (“Reiseauskunft der Deutschen Bahn”) and many more.
For a list of all my public projects and projects I am contributing to, see my GitLab and GitHub profile respectively.
As you can see from the projects I am working on, I am trying to improve the user-facing experience of Linux smartphones like the PinePhone. In my process of writing applications that I wanted on my PinePhone, I personally enhanced my experience of the device to “that’s cool” to “mostly daily-drivable”. As from feedback I got from these applications, I am not the only one having such benefits from my work. My future shorter-term goal is to further enhance my current applications and maybe create new ones such that many more users can enjoy their mobile Linux experience.
I am mostly active on GitLab and GitHub, although these days I prefer GitLab. Note that I am not on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, Mastodon or any other popular social media. If you find any account over there, it is not me.
