Hello world!

Hi there!

I’m an italian computer science student, who likes to join new “code adventures”.
I started my opensource expirience with Avant Window Navigator (written in C) after seeing a nice “mockup” around the web for a new theme!
I said “Wow, this is awesome, I want it, so I’ll code it myself”.
That’s it. I started looking at Gtk and Cairo documentation and after about a month “Lucido” was born and I joined the Awn Core Team!

Then I wrote a few patches to make rendering faster and to make 3D Style a little more glossy.

After that, ~mhr3 invited me to join a secret project (written in Vala) and here we are.
That project is now well known asĀ Synapse!


Synapse (Dark Virgilio Theme)

Synapse is a semantic-launcher that will “Find what you do” in a few milliseconds!
Synapse is now at version 0.2.4, but it’ll be 0.2.6 very soon!
And trust me, you’ll like it more and more!
