First, conceptually this is what I mean: think about when using a good screen-capture/annotation tool like flameshot: you select a region of the screen, and "magic" you can "edit" it, "in situ". No, what I'm talking about wouldn't share any of the same technical underpinnings with the way flameshot works, it would be the live monitor output, not a raster dump of the screen made to look like it's live. And the annotating would be done on a different screen. But as a user, this is pretty similar.

Free and Open Source Reverse Engineering Platform powered by rizinProject mention: If you're interested in eye-tracking, I'm interested in funding you | news.ycombinator.com | 2023-08-26
Okay, so, your comment about a "Dasher + Guitar Hero music theory/improvisation practice program" just sent me down a huge rabbit hole...
Well, rabbit hole(s) plural, I guess, most not directly related. :D
Largely because I made the "mistake" of looking at your HN profile & discovering you're also in NZ & we seem to have somewhat overlapping interests (and an affinity for "bacon" in account names, apparently), so, some thoughts... :)
# Topic 1: Nissan Leaf VSP hacking
After reading your recent posts (https://ianrrees.github.io//2023/07/03/vsp-hacking.html & https://ianrrees.github.io//2023/08/05/voltage-glitch-inject...) on this topic & noting your remark about wanting to try reverse engineering a firmware image, I found the following thesis PDF (via a brief google search for `"reverse engineer" "firmware" "Renesas"`):
* "AUTOMOTIVE FIRMWARE EXTRACTION AND ANALYSIS TECHNIQUES" by Jan Van den Herrewegen https://etheses.bham.ac.uk/id/eprint/11516/1/VandenHerrewege...
Not really what I was anticipating finding but seems relevant to your interests--I don't think it was already in your resource list.
While the thesis addresses the Renesas 78K0 rather than the Renesas 78K0R, from a brief look at the "Flash Protection" PDF Application Note in your resource list it seems there's a large overlap.
Perhaps most significantly the author presents "novel methods" that combine bootloader binary analysis with constraint-based power glitching in an effort to improve on the results described in "Shaping the Glitch".
While I haven't read the entire 186 pages :D they theorize that using their approach extracting 8kB firmware might only take ~10 hours.
And, most helpfully, they even published their source code under the GPL here: https://github.com/janvdherrewegen/bootl-attacks
So, an interesting adjacent read even if it turns out not to be directly applicable to your situation.
Given I have an interest in & a little experience with firmware reversing my original thought was to maybe provide some hopefully helpful references that more generically related to firmware reversing but more specific is good too, I guess. :)
On the CAN tooling/info front, you might be interested in taking a look at my "Adequate CAN" list which I originally wrote-up for a client a couple years ago: https://gitlab.com/RancidBacon/adequate-can
Some other probably outdated reverse engineering tooling links of mine: https://web.archive.org/web/20200119074540/http://www.labrad...
In terms of how to approach RE, other than just "getting started & digging in" & learning by doing, I've sometimes found it informative to read other people's firmware reverse engineering write-ups to learn about potentially useful approaches/tools.
Anyway, hopefully some of this is helpful!
 I have a tendency to be a little... "verbose" and/or "thorough" (depending on one's POV :) ) so I'll probably split this over a couple of comments, in case I run out of steam while writing and for topic separation.
Dear PyGui: A fast and powerful Graphical User Interface Toolkit for Python with minimal dependenciesProject mention: Need help with text alignment | /r/DearPyGui | 2023-05-29
If it's just to align text in the centre or to the right of a box, you could use a button and, by using theming, hide the fact that it's a button. https://github.com/hoffstadt/DearPyGui/issues/1111

Windows UI Library: the latest Windows 10 native controls and Fluent styles for your applicationsProject mention: WinUI 3 is now open source | news.ycombinator.com | 2023-10-24
Features: - Functional style. Inspired by  and React - Simple and elegant syntax (in my opinion). - Support for UTF8 and fullwidth chars (→ 测试). - No dependencies. - Cross platform. Linux/mac (main target), Windows (experimental thanks to contributors), - WebAssembly. - Keyboard & mouse navigation. Operating systems: - linux emscripten - linux gcc - linux clang - windows msvc - mac clangProject mention: Library for NES style terminal game. | /r/cpp_questions | 2023-09-30
Background: I want to make a NES Tetris) clone for the terminal, with full resolution, this is achievable through using this ▀ character, and defining back and foreground color. This would result in a 1x2 pixel and by making the game width 256x120 characters this would provide full resolution. I made some tests, creating my own encoding for the different sprites and optimizing everything, which resulted in very quick printing times, even with a normal terminal. Nearly fast enough for the full 60Hz that the NES has, when printing the whole screen. The fact that i don't need to reprint the background (except maybe a tetris), makes 60Hz a kinda realistic goal. My main concern is, that there could occur kind of a screen tearing effect, which i really want to avoid. AFAIK, ncurses has a way to print the whole "window" with a function call to avoid this issue, however I had a lot of issues when trying to use ncurses to print the entire background and figured, that there are better alternatives. I also tried FTXUI and whilst the experience of giving each "pixel" a fore- and background color was much better, i didn't quite find a way to refresh the screen like ncurses. (i think there is some kind of way with the ScreenInteractive class, but i didn't get that to work, and it seemed like there was not a way to color each pixel. with InteractiveScreen you can make your own components with the whole "text()" thing, but this isn't really what i need)
Cross-Platform C++ GUI LibraryProject mention: Building Apps with Tauri and Elixir | dev.to | 2023-10-19
The Elixir programming language is no stranger to desktop applications as the language actually supports building them out of the box. It uses wxWidgets: a C++ library that lets developers create applications for Windows, macOS, Linux and other platforms with a single code base. But wxWidgets has a very complex API, and doesn’t solve issues that usually come with desktop applications around packaging.
