Top 23 C# Linux Projects

  • PowerShell

    PowerShell for every system!

  • Project mention: Microsoft to Deprecate VBScript | news.ycombinator.com | 2024-05-26

    Not necessarily:

    1. UNIX-compatibility aliases like "ls -> Get-ChildItem" and "cat -> Get-Content" are not defined in PowerShell on Linux or macOS. For a complete list of these, see the PowerShell source code[1] (look for "#if !UNIX").

    2. A number of aliases from PowerShell ≤ 5.1 were removed in PowerShell Core (≥ 6.0), including the particularly annoying "curl -> Invoke-WebRequest" (conflicts with curl.exe) and "sc -> Set-Content" (conflicts with sc.exe).

  • Avalonia

  • Project mention: Show HN: QuIDE 2 – cross plattform quantum-circuit designer | news.ycombinator.com | 2024-05-31

    At our research chair (https://mnm-team.org) we used QuIDE (https://quide.eu) quite a lot to try out quantum circuits and teach quantum computing to our students. As many of us were not using Windows that was kind of annoying, because it was only running on Windows.

    So one of our students refactored QuIDE for Windows (https://quide.eu) together with us with Avalonia UI (https://avaloniaui.net/) for cross platform use on Linux, macOS and Windows.

    I think it's now in a state to be used as replacement for the old version. We're happy about new users and contributors.

  • PEASS-ng

    PEASS - Privilege Escalation Awesome Scripts SUITE (with colors)

  • ArchiSteamFarm

    C# application with primary purpose of farming Steam cards from multiple accounts simultaneously.

  • Project mention: Is still safe to use steam idle? | /r/Steam | 2023-12-07

    Why should they? But be sure to use Open Source Projects like https://github.com/JustArchiNET/ArchiSteamFarm or https://github.com/JonasNilson/idle_master_extended so that no funny business happens due to your account due to shady idler programs. Idler programs simply mimic what you're doing and Steam doesn't care about you actually played the game or idled the time since Playtime is IR-reversible and the more you idle, the more you can't refund the game which suits them well.

  • Uno Platform

  • Project mention: Yo Ho, Yo Ho, a pirates life for me!! Recent streaming services, prices and shows getting butchered, finally decided its time. Here's how a basic self-hosted 'Netflix' would look like. Fully automated once its setup. Using only a makeshift homelab server from second hand parts. | /r/Piracy | 2023-07-06

    The Overseer part In truth, I'm less familiar with and it's full feature set, But at a quick glance it looks like it would be similar to ombi (https://ombi.io/). I know for a fact that you can set up OMBI to let users just type in stuff and it will grab it for them. I didn't like that and opted to manually approve requests.
