The duck is cute, and it’s small. Some of these would be terrifying on an 80x25 terminal!

(of course, I’m pretty sure mawww has said no more assistants for the ncurses UI, but maybe something for future third-party UIs to consider. :wink: )


#4

Also – I think we need to convince @mawww on the duck so we can do rubber duck debugging right in Kakoune.


#5

Here’s a relevant discussion about the introduction of new assistants: https://github.com/mawww/kakoune/issues/1753

The last one was Dilbert, made by ironzorg.

Rubber duck debugging is strong argument tho, it will actually increase productivity :smiley: @mawww pretty please?
