Video: unpaper with Meson — pytesting our way out

Another couple of hours spent looking at porting Unpaper to Meson, this time working on porting the tests from the horrible mix of Automake, shell, and C to a more manageable Python testing framework.

I’ll write up a more complex debrief of this series of porting videos, as there’s plenty to unpack out of all of them, and some might be good feedback for the Meson folks to see if there’s any chance to make a few things easier — or at least make it easy to find the right solution.

Also, you can see a new avatar in the corner to make the videos easier to recognize 😀 — the art is from the awesome Tamtamdi, commissioned by my wife as a birthday present last year. It’s the best present ever, and it seemed a perfect fit for the streams.

And as I said at the end, the opening getting ready photo stars Pesto from Our Super Adventure, and you probably saw it already when I posted about Sarah and Stef’s awesome comics.

As a reminder, I have been trying to stream a couple of hours of Free Software every so often on my Twitch channel — and then archiving these on YouTube. If you’re interested in being notified about these happening, I’m usually announcing them with a few hours to spare (rarely more than that due to logistics) on Twitter or Facebook.
