Developed an embedded product
Last weekend I spent much longer than I should have building the smallest possible Linux image that will run my garage door monitor application on a Raspberry Pi W. It started off at 35Mb and ended up at 12Mb, completely through custom kernel configuration. Some of the things my kernel no longer has:

  • USB
  • Sound card support
  • Input device support (keyboard, mouse, joystick)
  • Ethernet
  • IPv6
  • Netfilter
  • BFP
  • Disk based file-systems (ext3, fat, etc.)
It retains enough to still be able to get on the Wi-Fi and run my application. There might be more that I could disable but I think it's small enough.

Allsorts is a Rust crate (library) that can parse OpenType, WOFF, and WOFF2 fonts, shape text, and subset fonts1. We use it in Prince for all font parsing, shaping, and subsetting.

Since the Allsorts 0.5 release in Dec 2020 we've continued to improve Allsorts and expand its capabilities. The 0.6 release adds support for shaping Khmer, Lao, Thai, and Sinhala scripts; laying out glyphs and obtaining their positions; accessing glyph contours; improved performance; and a few bug fixes as well.
