Help with using youtube-dl / Github
2 projects | reddit.com/r/software | 21 Mar 2023
Hey, I would strongly advise going with yt-dlp instead as YouTube-dl is outdated. Their GitHub page is here https://github.com/yt-dlp/yt-dlp . I personally have it installed with Brew, follow the instructions on this website https://brew.sh and after it’s installed, just run “brew install yt-dlp”. To download videos just run “yt-dlp “URL HERE”” (make sure to include the quotation marks around the url. Tell me if you need any help!

Definitely get Homebrew going - let's you install bunches of apps from commandline and just overall helps streamline the whole installation process.

Improving Docker file performance on MacOS
2 projects | dev.to | 11 Mar 2023
As I was tracking the above performance regression, I discovered an open-source container runtime for MacOS/Linux called Colima. It is pretty much a Docker Desktop drop-in replacement and also offers VirtioFS (on Ventura - i.e. MacOS 13.x or newer). You don't need to uninstall Docker Desktop, just stop it and install Colima e.g. through Homebrew:

Stop searching for shared libraries
2 projects | reddit.com/r/cpp | 5 Nov 2022
At the end of the day a distro or a package manager can decide to do this (typically with patchelf). For example Spack enables this now under a config option: https://github.com/spack/spack/pull/31948. Nix is considering to support it, but the relevant issue is already open for about 5 years, so unclear if they will do it.
What happened to LLVM 15?
2 projects | reddit.com/r/archlinux | 24 Oct 2022
If you want to keep up with compilers (and other tools) without waiting for distro support, you might want to take a look at spack: https://github.com/spack/spack. Together with something like Lmod or Environment-Modules, you can have multiple versions of different compilers without any of them getting in each others way. It's sort of meant for hpc centers and is well maintained by Livermore labs, but works well on a dev workstation too.
C++ for scientific programming?
6 projects | reddit.com/r/cpp | 27 Jul 2022
The package *management* story is still not as good as it could be, but there is a tremendous amount of high-quality third-party C++ "packages" out there--for some sufficiently loose definition of a package. If you use conan as your package manager, you have access to (at least) these. Though, in an HPC setting I would probably turn to spack first (which was developed by expert HPC tooling folks and is already used in very large/complex HPC deployments).

The Curse of NixOS

You might as well try Spack, it's Python + a dsl to customize builds in a single line. Guix package descriptions look very daunting to me.
