This morning, I found this free online library: Feast Afrique, a compilation of West African & African American cookbooks & related resources. It's full of riches!

feastafrique.com/

@cj very much found the same. I switched to using escape-html-template-tag for view rendering which is simple and requires no dependencies or build tools.

For better or for worse we don't get very many reported toots. Either way, if you're ever unsure about content you see while using kith.kitchen, we'd rather you report it than let it slide.

A few statistics for anyone interested: since the start of Feb we've had 21 new users, and only suspended 1 account.

@artsyhonker that's OK, I'm thinking about doing them monthly so no pressure if you can't make it

Check out FLOSS-UX.

As you all know #UX is generally a weak spot in #FLOSS projects.

"This project is dedicated to improving, educating and creating discussion for the benefit of everyone interested in Free/Libre and Open Source Software (FLOSS). What does it take to create user experiences that rival proprietary software with huge budgets and design teams? Let’s figure it out as a community, through discussion and cooperation!"

@mark Eslint is popular and flexible, some people use Standard which makes a point of being unconfigurable (prevents bikeshedding), but personally I don't like some of their settings.

One thing that stood out to me was Imma Mwanja's emphasis on the importance of free software in mapping projects to enable participation of people in postcolonial areas. This is an article that she recommended:

"The use of proprietary products creates a vicious cycle whereby charitable and public development funds are effectively channeled to proprietary software companies […], entrenching the Western monopoly on well-paid jobs in Africa."

@GwenfarsGarden sorry to hear that. Hopefully they'll be a regular occurrence

@vfrmedia I wore one on valentines day, but before that it was probably the last wedding I went to. I like a nice tie as casual fancy clothing but wouldn't wear one as daywear.

I'd like to hold a video meetup for Kith kitchen folks on the first weekend of March (6th to 7th), just a no-pressure friendly hangout for our users to get to know each other better. If you're interested, like this post and I'll send you a doodle poll link so we can find a time that works.
