    Project mention: Question about immutability | /r/linuxquestions | 2023-06-06

    Other hardening guides mention a Unified Kernel Image as another measure to further improve security. Unfortunately, once more, this is (currently) not supported on Fedora Silverblue. I haven't seen it being done on openSUSE Aeon either. Though, once again, I'd love to be corrected!

  • bake

    A build system that lets you clone, build and run C/C++ projects with a single command (by SanderMertens)

    Project mention: Chalet: A cross-platform project format & build tool for C/C++ | /r/programming | 2022-06-09

    I agree in case of cmake, but not in case of e.g. meson (or all other build systems the specification files of which are not scripts). But we also have to keep in mind that JSON is just the basic syntax, but the interesting stuff is built on top; it's like XML, which - as we know - can quickly become human unreadable and complex; JSON has simpler constructs than XML of course, but what you do with JSON is even though subject to specific usability assessment; a specification language is not automatically more usable because it is based on JSON. And also the other contemporary build systems abstract e.g. compiler differences away. I would compare your approach to e.g. Qbs or https://github.com/SanderMertens/bake.
