QuestPDF 2021.12 - a new version of the open-source, MIT-licensed, C# library for generating PDF documents with fluent API, now with improved layout debugging experience 🎉 Please help me make it popular 🚀 I am excited to share with you a new 2021.12 release of QuestPDF, an open-source library designed for generating PDF documents in .NET applications. But let me start at the beginning...
What is QuestPDF? There are already a couple of free or paid libraries in the .NET ecosystem that provide PDF generation features. The way how QuestPDF differs is simple: instead of relying on an HTML-to-PDF conversion, it implements its own layouting engine that renders the full content using the SkiaSharp library (a Skia port for .NET, used in Chrome, Android, MAUI, etc.).
I have written this layouting engine with full paging support in mind. The document content is aware of page size, can be moved to the next page (if there is not enough space) or even be split between pages (e.g. table rows) - there are many elements that support paging functionality which helps with implementing desired paging behaviour. Additionally, you have full access to a full suite of simple elements (e.g. border, background, image, text, padding, etc.) that are essential building blocks of complex layouts. This way, you have a set of easy to learn and understand tools that are highly composable and predictable which reduces the time of development.
This concept has proven to be really successful in many projects already. If you like it and want to support the project development, please give it a star in the GitHub repository and upvote ⬆️ this post.
The Getting Started tutorial shows how to create an example invoice
How does the code look like? Let's analyse this example code that generates the products table, visible on the image above.
Please notice that the entire PDF structure and content are implemented in c# code, without any visual designer. This significantly improves code reusability and maintenance. It also makes the entire Fluent API more discoverable as it is available via IntelliSense. The Fluent API also supports all standard C# features (as it is just a normal C# code), e.g. conditions, formatting and loops.
More details and a full explanation can be found in the Getting Started tutorial.
What is new in the 2021.12 release? This release of the QuestPDF library consists mostly of several improvements inspired by the community. I would like to thank all of you for your support and help.
  • Improved debugging experience for layout-related exceptions. To make the library predictable, it is (by design) very strict about layouting rules and throws an exception when a constraint cannot be met. In this release, each exception contains an element stack that provides all information needed to identify the issue. By default, this feature is enabled only when the debugger is attached.
  • Improved layouting algorithm performance by introducing an additional caching layer. This cache reduces the layouting time by half. By default, this feature is enabled only when the debugger is not attached (mostly release mode).
  • Reduced GA pressure put by the layouting algorithm. Previously, every element measurement operation was represented by an object and the paging support was done via class hierarchy. The new solution uses structs (which are value-types) and enums. This also makes the code more readable and easier to follow.
  • Added support for generating XPS files that are easier to print in the Windows environment. This was possible due to existing support in SkiaSharp. This change was proposed by sbrkich, thank you!
New debugging experience in action As mentioned, the QuestPDF library is very strict regarding layouting rules and throws an exception when a given constraint cannot be met. To better understand why this release is so important, let's analyse the code below. We define a nested container that requires more space than its parent can provide (150 points does not fit in 100 points). In such a simple example, it is easy to find. But in the real world scenario, with hundreds of lines of code, it is way more challenging.

QuestPDF should be a friend and help the developer as much as possible... Now, when the layouting exception is thrown, the developer gets a detailed element trace. I like to think about this as a stack trace but for visual layouts. So, if stack trace shows you an execution path, the element trace presents the rendering state and which elements have been rendered when the exception was thrown.
The indentation level corresponds to a nested child and follows the hierarchy. Each element provides additional information (e.g. text, colour value, size) that can help with element finding. To simplify the process, 🔥 shows a path to a potentially problematic element. The 🌟 indicate special components, e.g. page headecontent/footer or any instance of the new DebugPointer element.

“He would not stay for me, and who can wonder? He would not stay for me to stand and gaze. I shook his hand, and tore my heart in sunder, And went with half my life about my ways.”
The world had gold once and now it’s gone. I am beginning to suspect that there aren’t really many left at all who even know what that rarified quality of being looked like.. Couldn’t recognize it if they saw it, couldn’t begin to even want to aim to attain it. Not in their nature anymore. Nothing left but fools gold and dreams of oblivion.
Live fast and die hard. You’ll always be golden in someone’s oft remembered dream.. a last memory polished over and over, desperate to not let the details fade. But I’m fading. Cast like a shadow under the Hiroshima sun of your passing.

2021.12.06 09:00 vmaurya7 Enlightenment is not an experience.

The first glimpse of realization seems like the end, and really, it is. You know everything there is to know, which is nothing, and you know it instantaneously. Zen and non-dual teachings are really good at sparking the realization, at which point you are fully enlightened for, like, a few minutes, before it becomes a memory. Shortly thereafter, ego identification picks up right where it left off, and now claims enlightenment. I know this, not just because I’ve seen it and have heard about it through teachers like Adyashanti, but because I’ve done it.
It feels like the ultimate accomplishment. You feel like you’re glowing, constantly floating, with shiny eyes, boundless compassion, and infinite wisdom. It’s everything an ego could possibly want. There is no talking someone out of this phase. I knew what I knew, and no one could tell me otherwise. In my own mind, I could now behave as I pleased, since I was enlightened. I was beyond the boundaries of conventional behavior, like all those crazy saints I’d heard about. Do you see how dangerous this can be?
Listening to this now, it sounds like I had become an insufferable narcissist, which is exactly what I was prior to any “enlightenment,” and perhaps even more so after my formative experience. My clever little brain deflected any arguments against my realization as simply coming from those who couldn’t possibly understand. I was immune to criticism.
I know what the Zen and non-dual folks are going to say at this point, “simply return to the direct perception of no-self” or something along those lines. The problem is, the memory of the experience feels like the actual experience as far your ego is concerned. You won’t know you’re doing it until life hits you with some more suffering, and you’re forced to see it again. Ram Das called this “fierce grace,” an apt term. Fierce grace will snap you right back into lucidity, and you’ll be faced with the reality that all you’ve been doing is avoiding your unresolved human stuff, something that you’ll have to face after you get that initial taste.
Hopeful aspirants LOVE to point out exceptions to this rule, like Ramana Maharishi, assuming that will the the case for them, too. Remember how Ramana was sitting in a cave for several years after his experience. What do you think he was doing? That’s right, going through this same period I’m talking about, except in a more saintly and dignified manner, before making the critical decision that he should spend the rest of his life in a diaper.
To those who will say, “you are already enlightened” because you’ve heard it said elsewhere — how’s that working for you? That’s what I thought. In nearly every case, there is a prolonged process of integration and embodiment of the experience that can take years, rife with traps and delusions. And yes, non dual folks, the realization was always there, there is no ego, there is no one to fix, etc, etc. That’s all true, but in my experience and the experience of countless others, you kinda have to go through this rough patch where you’ll find yourself trying to make sense of it. It seems like an inevitable step you have to go through, and it’s easy to get lost. You’ll need a burning spiritual fire to see yourself through, and it’ll seem like there’s never an end to all the stuff you’ll have to face.
Then one day, it’s just over, and you’re just here, and you know that’s always been the case, and you’ll wonder what the hell all that fuss was about, and whether it was even necessary.

2021.12.06 09:00 DrKoNfLiCtTOAO How are the Mac firmwares still so shockingly bad after all these years?

It's weird how keychron markets their KB's for mac but any software from keychron for mac is shockingly bad and needs 3rd party tools to even run. People have been complaining about this for many years but apparently it's too difficult to hire someone semi competent to write a mac firmware that works.
They promised a universal software suite for RGB and firmware handling as well years ago but that never happened either. They keep releasing 20 keyboards a year but can barely throw together a working mac firmware. Am I the only one annoyed at this?

2021.12.06 09:00 Sure_Combination_725 Can’t really tell if my bupropion is helping my depression.

Lemme just start by saying that I am a big believer in this medication. I had very bad anxiety disorder and also adhd and it helped with with both. I noticed a change in my anxiety a lot because it would prevent me from having bad panic attacks often. I still sometimes get to the point where I have a tiny one but breathing technique’s help me a lot as well. Besides it helping my anxiety I take it for depression but I honestly have no clue if it really works like it’s supposed to. I’ve been taking it for a year and obviously don’t expect it to have the same effects as it did at the start but I see people talking about how it gives them an energy boost while also making them happy. I’ll have times where I get a random burst of dopamine for no reason and it makes me think if I’m supposed to feel that more with a medication like this. I have a terrible sleep schedule and I don’t eat very good foods so that could contribute to my feelings. Also my perception on happiness is very swayed because I got so accustomed to the immediate dopamine rush from smoking weed so much. I guess what I wanna know is, am I supposed to be feeling an energy boost every day when I take this?because if so I don’t and if I do get one and it’s for a short period at a random time.
