The Bitkom Open Source Guide 3.0: A Comprehensive Upgrade

For 6 years, the Bitkom Open Source Guide 2.0 was a welcome first point of contact for German companies regarding the appropriate use of open-source software. It was a stimulating source and benchmark at the same time. But like everything else in the world, it has aged over time. Thus, it’s good to know that Bitkom and its ‘Open Source’ working group have taken up the topic again. In June 2022, there was officially released an expanded and refined Bitkom Open Source Guide 3.0, – again intended to be a manual and a benchmark for companies → …

Musicology and LaTeX

Musicologists have a hard time – namely if they want to enrich their LaTeX-texts by score examples and harmony analyses. Up to now, there did not exist any study of whether and how that could be realized with free software. This article summarizes a paper – written in German – concerning the topic LaTeX and Musicology, which on the quiet has become a self-referential tutorial teaching what’s possible and what is not. → …

CC-BY Trolls

A presentation without images sucks. Therefore, we are sometimes tempted to take some from the Internet for beautifying our work. There are so many excellent pictures on the World Wide Web. But to legally inserting a foreign picture in one’s own presentation is not that easy. Unfortunately, a new type of troll has emerged recently, the image trolls. → …

Illustrating Open-Source Posts

I love ZEN-presentations, especially when they deal with open-source software. To create such files, we need pictures. Many pictures. That’s why I keep stumbling over the question of whether the FOSS licenses also allow us to use icons and logos in the same way as the code? Moreover: Under which conditions may we illustrate our articles with ‘internet-pictures‘ ? I’ve always wanted to make that clear to myself → …

Atom and vi(m): a dream comes true

Ich liebe den vi(m), insbesondere wenn ich in einem Repository arbeite. Es ist so leicht, schnell mal eben eine Datei per Konsole zu ändern, so einfach alle Trumps durch Biden zu ersetzen: :1,$ s/[Tt]rump/Biden/g. Aber am Desktop habe auch ich bisher natürlich GUI basierte Editoren genutzt, Gedit z.B. Oder – seit einigen Monaten – Atom. Daher rutschten mir manchmal vi-Befehle wie xi in meine Texte – weil ich vergessen hatte, dass ich einen Desktop-Editor benutzte. Aber jetzt ist ein Traum wahr geworden: → …

gtgt Or The Life After

In 2000, I had released the Gnu Template Generation Tools that instantiate a set of sources which were readily prepared for being developed, compiled, and installed with the GNU ‘Autoconf/Automake’ development environment. A few years later they were passed – by new languages, techniques, and tools. But now we have revitalized gtgt for special reasons of open source compliance: → …

Atom under Ubuntu 20.04

I am a loyal soul. But my patience is limited: On Ubuntu 20.04, the tips from Eclipse are displayed in black on black. Hmm. Markdown editors are cumbersome. Oops. And the ‘spell-check’ for German-English texts still doesn’t work. Grrr. So, it is time to conquer new frontiers: everyone is already talking about ‘Atom‘. Let us give it a try even if – on Ubuntu 04/20 – we have to circumnavigate some cliffs. → …
