  • notes

    Fast and beautiful note-taking app written in C++. Write down your thoughts.

    Project mention: Why I Like Obsidian | news.ycombinator.com | 2024-01-17

    Plume is built on top of my open source note-taking app Notes[1]. Since Plume is based on Notes, I'll of course comply with the MPL license and release all existing files that were changed (and must stay MPL licensed).

    But I recently discussed my reasoning to go close-source with Plume[2]. I've been working night and day (every day) converting 4 cups of coffee into code for the last 4.5 months to create Plume. I don't want to risk not being rewarded sufficiently for it. But, I'm 99% sure that I'll either open source the core block editor or the entire app in the future.

  • Qt

    Qt Base (Core, Gui, Widgets, Network, ...)

    Project mention: Current Issues With The Qt Project - From The Outside Looking In | /r/QtFramework | 2023-04-20

    Qt mono repo : .. you could check out all submodules and simply use CMake to exactly achieve this. A mono repo also means that if I only use qtbase and declarative, I would need to have all submodules in there? - No

  • linuxdeployqt

    Makes Linux applications self-contained by copying in the libraries and plugins that the application uses, and optionally generates an AppImage. Can be used for Qt and other applications

    Project mention: Two reasons because Arch-based AppImages are not a good idea | /r/archlinux | 2023-05-05

    The second reason is the "modularity" of Arch, why Debian packages all the dependences in many different packages? Because a developer can isolate a bug or exclude that package using the right patch. Arch tends to package everything together. That's why an AppImage of Chromium for me is about 140 MB from a Ubuntu base and 280-300 from an Arch-base... but at least this is an issue of both arch-deployer and arch2appimage... I think that by using linuxdeployqt would be better in this case (SPOILER, it requires the host system with an old GLIBC version, also Debian Bookwork is too new for it xD ).

  • qimgv

    Image viewer. Fast, easy to use. Optional video support.

    Project mention: "How i learned about Firefox MPRIS" - or - "[PSA/FYI] Add years to your life by avoiding this critical 'WTF?!?' moment." | /r/firefox | 2023-03-13

    about this time, i am a little more than intrigued and a bit confused. i use my image viewing program qimgv (github) by typing qimvg 87956_60.png and was shown a photograph of a man seemingly turning his head to look at me.

  • seer

    Seer - a gui frontend to gdb

    Project mention: Beej's Quick Guide to GDB (2009) | news.ycombinator.com | 2023-11-05

    CLion uses lldb.

    I wrote https://github.com/daym/idea-native2-debugger as a stop-gap. It uses gdb and works in IntelliJ IDEA Community edition. Setting it up the first time is kinda weird since you need to add a new run/debug configuration "Native2Debugger". I could not figure out how to hook this directly into the existing run configuration that you use to run your program to begin with. Otherwise, I like how it turned out.

    If you want a standalone frontend, https://github.com/epasveer/seer is extremely good.

    And emacs has gdb integration. By now I tried it, and... I guess it's better than nothing.

    Project mention: Recommendations for Git Client GUI | /r/ManjaroLinux | 2023-04-26

  • nitroshare-desktop

    Network file transfer application for Windows, OS X, & Linux

    Project mention: Please help me find a semi Permanent OS | /r/FindMeADistro | 2023-04-24
