Ask HN: What are some tools / libraries you built yourself?

A silly userscript  that uses jQuery selectors to interact with YouTube's DOM to help me move videos around my playlists. Sadly it breaks every few months whenever YouTube updates their DOM. AFIK this is the only way to "programmatically" move videos out of my Watch Later list since they removed the functionality from the API
Ask HN: What personal tools are you the most proud of making?

I've created a couple of userscripts (anybody remember Greasemonkey?) to help augment sites that I use everyday
Sadly they break every couple of months when the sites' DOM changes. The YouTube one is currently broken and I haven't had the time to fix it yet

I came across yadm (Yet Another Dotfiles Manager) the other day, which also looks kind of interesting.
is it possible to make a backup of ur whole system?
1 project | reddit.com/r/linuxquestions | 20 Mar 2022
This may be controversial but I honestly think you're better off backing up files and config separately, and just exporting a list of the packages you have installed rather than backing those up. When you provision a new system, it's as easy as installing your package list, pulling your backed up configs (use something like yadm, which is just a git wrapper and you can even use a bootstrap script to automate this whole workflow) and grabbing your backed up data from an online or ideally local backup. Any development work should be in version control so this will likely just be photos, documents, videos, media etc.
I need a cli-based configuration manager for linux
1 project | reddit.com/r/commandline | 7 Mar 2022
I don't know that one, or if you need to manage whole systems vs user dotfiles, but if it's the latter, I'm very happy with yadm.
is there a better way to symlink with stow?
5 projects | reddit.com/r/linuxquestions | 28 Jan 2022
Do you know YADM? It's a very popular dotfile manager with 3.1k stars on Github. It took me a while to find one that keeps a clean track of my dotfiles files. YADM does the job with the files in their original location, which means you don't need to copy the files or create symlinks. It's super clean.
