We have just provided a progress report for the first week of project!


Thank you so much to everyone that has expressed interest and contributed so far. The links in this post should answer some of your FAQs and direct you to our project communication channels.

We now have a project code of conduct!

The community determined it should be based on the Contributor Covenant, and that it should be added to and amended over time as the need arises. If you have any further ideas or feedback, let us know.

(As previously stated we are still working on the website, so expect the theme and layout to change in the near future)


As the project has existed for less than a week we are still working on the content and design for our website, but for now we have provided some initial answers to your FAQs:


If you want to get involved with the project, we are now ready to share our public chat channels!

Matrix users will find our community at +glimpse:matrix.org

IRC users will find us via the channel on freenode (you will need to use a registered nickname to enter)

We’d like to thank Roberts-Loux Foundation for subscribing as an Elite supporter on the Patreon 🎉


We’d like to thank Loren Dias for subscribing as an Elite supporter on the Patreon 🍾


Just confirming that we now also have a placeholder account on birdsite here: twitter.com/glimpse_editor

You can also contribute to the costs of domains/server hosting for our tools here: patreon.com/glimpse

In the next couple of days we will hopefully have a Matrix server and a website so the community can share more information about this project.

Some thank you notices:

@brainblasted for excellent work helping to setup Matrix (coming soon) and encouraging more people to join the informal IRC chat channel

@Clipsey for starting already on some of the rebranding work on Github and providing the initial splash screen mockups

@bob for helping to set up the initial project tools & documentation

Also the various GNOME & fediverse community members that joined us on IRC yesterday & today. Your feedback continues to be invaluable. 👍

Also just confirming that the current avatar is a placeholder.

Hopefully we will have a proper logo/mascot for this project some time soon!

Glimpse boosted

It's fair to say the last couple of days have been a bit of a rollercoaster. I did *not* expect the level of interest @glimpse is getting 😂

Over the last couple of days there's been some amazing discussions on the IRC channel we quickly threw together, and I'm now working on making more information available later on today.
