My app doubles daily active users but admob reduced RPM to half

Developing Android Apps - 4 hours 19 min ago

I'm developping an App by my own (android only) and after 1 month on google play i grew the daily active users base from 100 to around 300 users.

The user avarage engagement kept around 15 minutes/day (those data come from firebase dashboard)

But on last days my admob revenue reduced to lower than half

I have 2 adunits in this app: 1 for a banner, 1 for video reward

During the whole month the banner got around 0.25 and video reward around 1.90USD RPM

all this changed to 0.11 and 1.11USD RPM respectivelly

Although the user growing happened slowly during the month... the admob revenue dropped at once, from one day to another

There was absolutelly no change in app that could explain this, the only thing that happened was I added some in-app products (and made few sales) and I connected the admob app with the play store link (I still dont know what is the point of that the only change i saw was the admob page now shows the icon of my app)

I sent some support requests to several google products all of them came with very stupid and generic responses most of all suggesting i should run an ad campaing to grow my user base

I was able to grew the user base during the month thanks to an ad campaing (ran out of google companies)

I made one spreadsheet with data from admob and firebase if someone can look the data and give me some insights

I really need help, on top of my mind the only thing I can think about this problem is like google has some kind of "special support" to micro apps in order to motivate them keep developing, once i reached the score to be classified as "small app" google removed any benefit or even injected some dificulties in order to force me use their services to keep growing

Is there a linux shell with structured data?

Linux - 4 hours 54 min ago

I spend most of my time in the shell, using bash to manipulate the file system and run programs. I love the power of piping several small tools together to create complex behaviors with a few keystrokes.

But one of the things the bothers me is that everything is text. I know, it's the best supported format, but it's also extremely limited in its capacity to carry data.

I could use an actual programming language like Python, of course, and I'm often forced to, even for rather simple tasks. But what I would really like is a shell that supports structured data (say, like json) as the basic medium of communication between programs, but still gives me the brevity and simplicity of a shell.

For example: ls can return a list of dictionaries, each one representing a file. It will have a to_text() method that prints it nicely with colors and everything, but I can also choose to iterate over the files, without having to worry about spaces, null-terminations, etc.

Is there such a project? I'm fine with early stage code, I might even contribute. I'm just tired of linuxing like it's the 70s.

(inb4 anyone suggests fish, xonsh or zsh, they're great but not what I'm looking for)

Windows Studio/ Professional Software

Linux - 6 hours 23 min ago

Is it possible to run Adobe, FL Studio, CAD, or Maya on Linux? Or are those only for Mac/PC? I love Linux and I can't give up that software and I can't be wrong if I think it's possible to run anything through it because it just doesn't make sense to me if you couldn't. So many people use it professionally... It's on phones, it must be possible...I get more done on Linux until it's time to whip out the real ammo. No virtual box.
