Itches

A running list of things that make me itch:

With respect to Narrator:

  • Because themes are in the appserver, it’s impossible to add a theme without stopping and starting the server
  • Because themes are in the appserver, there’s no consistent way to edit themes
  • There’s no easy way to inline-edit a story
  • There’s no easy way to modify a theme programmatically.
  • There’s no easy way to add a new series.
  • There’s no easy way to associate a new series with a new theme.
  • There’s no easy way to re-arrange the order of a series.
  • It ought to be possible to pick a series of stories and automatically generate an epub.
  • It ought to be possible to be highly specific about page design in an epub.
  • It ought to be possible to pick a series of stories– and a specialized theme– and generate a PDF appropriate for LightningSource or Lulu.
  • It ought to be possible to easily edit the cover of the book thus produced.
With respect to Liferea:
  • In the current architecture, it’s impossible to use when it’s updating. ┬áIt needs to be a client/server architecture.

Other itches:

  • Almost all Git UIs suck.
  • Almost all project management UIs suck.
