  • Project mention: Aqara Vibration Sensor…tilt? Nope. (DeCONZ) | /r/homeautomation | 2023-05-07

    You could try putting in an issue here: https://github.com/dresden-elektronik/deconz-rest-plugin/issues

  • OpenHD


  • OnnxStream

    Lightweight inference library for ONNX files, written in C++. It can run SDXL on a RPI Zero 2 but also Mistral 7B on desktops and servers.

  • Project mention: Show HN: OnnxStream running TinyLlama and Mistral 7B, with CUDA support | news.ycombinator.com | 2024-01-14
  • Guitar

    Git GUI Client

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

    I really like Guitar. But, most of the time I use LazyGit in the terminal.

  • rpi-vk-driver

    VK driver for the Raspberry Pi (Broadcom Videocore IV)

  • mt32-pi

    🎹🎶 A baremetal kernel that turns your Raspberry Pi 3 or later into a Roland MT-32 emulator and SoundFont synthesizer based on Circle, Munt, and FluidSynth.

  • Project mention: Something between Rpi and Rpi Pico? | /r/microcontrollers | 2023-12-10

    I have just seen https://github.com/dwhinham/mt32-pi but it doesn't seem as easy to play with and well-documented as the other software I've used.

  • pegasus-frontend

    A cross platform, customizable graphical frontend for launching emulators and managing your game collection.

  • Project mention: Pegasus frontend on RP2S? | /r/retroid | 2023-12-05
  • LMS

    Lightweight Music Server. Access your self-hosted music using a web interface.

  • Project mention: Plex/Plexamp music tagging system is broken | /r/PleX | 2023-05-17

    For those that dont know if you add an album that has multiple album artists ( artist 1;artist b) then plex/plexamp instead of showing the album in both artists pages and showing both artist tags as clickable (same way EVERY streaming service is serving music right now) it populates a new artists page named "artists a;artist b". They keep adding trash features that none cares about or even asks and don't even have a basic feature that projects like Lightweight Music Server already have.

  • HyperHDR

    Highly optimized open source ambient lighting implementation based on modern digital video and audio stream analysis for Windows, macOS and Linux (x86 and Raspberry Pi / ARM).

  • Project mention: TV ambiance? | /r/smarthome | 2023-06-30

    You can DIY your own with a IC-based RGB/RGBW strip and a rPi or x86 PC + ESP microcontroller using software like Hyperion or HyperHDR, combined with WLED.

  • wmbusmeters

    Read the wired or wireless mbus protocol to acquire utility meter readings.

  • Project mention: Residential water meter - Community feedback is welcome | /r/Esphome | 2023-05-30

    It's possible you do not even need a meter. You can often read the utilities meter https://github.com/wmbusmeters/wmbusmeters

  • tangram-es

    2D and 3D map renderer using OpenGL ES

  • RTLSDR-Airband

    Multichannel AM/NFM demodulator

  • Project mention: Listen to HD radio with a $30 RTL SDR dongle | news.ycombinator.com | 2023-11-05

    You're all correct, except there are not that many $30 SDRs out there. Also, most SDRs have clearly superior capabilities to the RTL-SDR, though those capabilities often are not required.

    BTW, for simple AM/FM demodulation I cannot recommend enough the handy https://github.com/charlie-foxtrot/RTLSDR-Airband. For example most of LiveATC.net feeds run on it.
