Happy holidays everyone! Between family and tenacious colds December is always a slow month, but I’m pleased to announce another milestone toward Nyx’s next release!
Simplified from a 611 line monstrosity to trivial 346 line panel, Nyx’s configuration editor is the latest part to get some love. Simpler codebase aside, this overhaul greatly improves startup time. In its last release arm required multiple seconds the first time it was run to bootstrap this panel. This is no longer the case.
And really… that’s it. Faster, simpler, and otherwise a drop-in replacement. Next up is the last (and simplest) panel which presents the torrc. Honestly we’re getting kinda close to being ready to release which is exciting. First time arm users have gotten a new toy since 2012!
