Project Gemini - Caster

1 May, 2020 - 2 minutes
Project Gemini is a new protocol trying to fit in-between Gopher and HTTP. Checkout the spec and FAQ for more details. I found a gemini client, called caster, which is written in rust and uses GTK to display the ‘cap’ (cap==webpage). There are other clients, however, they are heavily based on Gopher ergo commandline based. This are some of the packages I needed to install to be able to complete caster on Fedora 32, there were probably others, but I’m sure you can figure it out - if not ping me.

Some other tips: rpm -qa | grep team This lists all packages installed. I couldn’t find the name of teams after I installed it from .rpm file.
