Git Fork: A fast and friendly Git client for Windows and Mac
5 projects | news.ycombinator.com | 31 May 2022
I'm a paying user of Fork, it's my favorite Git GUI, I love it.
However, it "only" supports macOS and Windows. I'm migrating to Linux for my work and home computers, so I haven't used it in a while, just so I can get familiar with other tools available on Linux - and, importantly, learning to do more advanced Git operations in the terminal.
So far I still depend on a GUI, mainly VS Code's built-in Git integration and GitGraph.
Also looking at GitLens: https://www.gitkraken.com/gitlens
..But I sure miss using Fork. I used it everyday for the last couple years. It does everything I want to do with Git, the UI is familiar and well-designed.
I see the main developer @DanPristupov is on HN, maybe he'd consider supporting Linux? I fully understand if you don't, since creating the same application for two OSes must be quite difficult already, especially for a small team rather than a company.
Ask HN: What underrated GitHub / Gitlab project has helped you a lot?
4 projects | news.ycombinator.com | 27 May 2021
Probably the most underrated software I use daily are some of my Firefox extensions.
https://github.com/einaregilsson/Redirector redirects my YouTube, Google, Twitter and Reddit links to privacy friendly frontends (i.e. Invidious, Startpage, Nitter and Libreddit).
https://github.com/proginosko/LeechBlockNG helps me staying away from time sinks on the internet during the day.
On the development side I use...
https://github.com/aaronvegh/nsregextester as my tried and true tool for regex debugging.
https://github.com/mhutchie/vscode-git-graph is a marvelous Git GUI for VSCode.
[Extension development] Best practices for developing web views?
1 project | reddit.com/r/vscode | 7 Apr 2021
VS Code does not appear to provide a stylesheet or anything to help you get off the ground, AFAICT… I wish they did. Every extension I know of has to implement basic components from scratch, styling and all. Seems like a lot of boilerplate is necessary before you can start developing anything the user will see on screen.
