Animated or Sketchy 2D Outline Shader

Asked in https://godotengine.org/qa/98759/animated-or-sketchy-2d-outline-shader I came to

Animated git

Simple HTTP(S?) server serving WebASM content

!!! WIP !!! I was surprised that running python3 -m http.server could serve WebASM.

But what about HTTPS? According to https://blog.anvileight.com/posts/simple-python-http-server/ this could be possible using

Meshing with a Mesh

In trying to answer a Godot G&A about distorting a Sprite/Mesh I came up with a (partly) solution

Using a MeshInstance2D with subdivisions it worked out as expected. But a Sprite has only 2 triagles forming a quad so moving a point influences maybe only 1 triangle with distortion on its bounderies.

Simple echo server

#!/usr/bin/env python
# FILE: server.py

import socket

HOST = ''
PORT = 3000
with socket.socket(socket.AF_INET, socket.SOCK_STREAM) as s:
    s.bind((HOST, PORT))
    s.listen(1)
    conn, addr = s.accept()
    with conn:
        print('Connected by', addr)
        while True:
            data = conn.recv(1024)
            if data == b'\n':
                break
            conn.sendall(data)

then

python server.py

and

netcat localhost 3000

to test against

Commit changes immediately to git using Rust

Having a trail of your coding flow can be handy or will explain the longing question about 'what was i thinking' when resolving problems of https://adventofcode.com/

Godot application not working for others. Check your log file

I've build a few iterations and suddenly it is broken. What!

Checking with the log file showed an error on a audio file name.

open ~/Library/Application Support/Godot/app_userdata/my-game/logs/godot.log

contains

...
**ERROR**: Cannot load source code from file 'res://UI/Audio.gd'.
...

So ... moving code from project using UI in uppercase to on that has ui lowercase is a known MacOS problem.

Scale object in your editor scene?

I want the assets imported from Blender or other sources fit my scene needs

For this we need to find the bound of the mesh and scale accordingly.
