About Me

Hello! My name is Lachlan Slape. I am a graduate student living in Brisbane, Australia and looking for remote employment. I am a programmer, GNU/Linux enthusiast and a full time nerd who is quick to adapt without much help or supervision. As a programmer, I follow many philosophies including: KISS (Keep it simple stupid) and the Unix philosophy of do one thing and do it right. As a lot of the things I create are scripts, my main programming language is Python. However I do mess around with source code programmed in C for my terminal emulator and window manager.

Outside of programming, I have a huge passion for sciences (mainly physics) and mathematics. I guess my interests in physics and mathematics probably stems from my love in programming, with how I love to learn the underlying mechanics of everything.

My Projects

kadai

kadai - a python program - is one of my most polished projects that I have completed. It is a simple yet extensible program that generates color-schemes based on a wallpaper it’s given. It’s extensible nature allows you to add hooks to the program and update pretty much anything, from your terminal to even gtk-based applications.

jyou

jyou was written to go hand-in-hand with my previous project, kadai. Like kadai, jyou is programmed using python, and features a minimal lockscreen wallpaper generated aimed at people with multiple monitors. It has features including adding blur and darkening the image. jyou shines with it’s multiple monitor generation, aimed at programs similar to i3lock that do not place the image per monitor, but instead stretch it over all of them.
