  • GitHub repo opensim-core

    SimTK OpenSim C++ libraries and command-line applications, and Java/Python wrapping.

    Project mention: [Question] Visual Studio Error: 'OpenSim': has already been defined to be a namespace | reddit.com/r/cmake | 2021-12-02

    True. The namespace is correct and it should be called "OpenSim". I do not know how and when I put OpenSim class definition in OpenSim.h header file, but that is the problem. The original header does not have those lines there.

  • Scout APM

    Scout APM: A developer's best friend. Try free for 14-days. Scout APM uses tracing logic that ties bottlenecks to source code so you know the exact line of code causing performance issues and can get back to building a great product faster.

  • GitHub repo qvge

    Qt Visual Graph Editor

    Project mention: How Graphviz thinks the USA is laid out | news.ycombinator.com | 2021-01-01

    Maybe, qvge (editor for graphs) may help you.


  • GitHub repo nextclade

    Viral genome alignment, mutation calling, clade assignment, quality checks and phylogenetic placement

    Project mention: For SARS-CoV-2 genomic analysis, what is the difference in utility of a Pangolin Lineage versus a NextClade Clade (e.g. lineage B.1.617.2 vs clade 21A)? | reddit.com/r/bioinformatics | 2021-08-03

    Lineage and clade assignments--especially by Pangolin and Nextclade, respectively--seem to be the most popular way to characterize SARS-CoV-2 genomes and so I'm wondering how these two concepts are applied differently to inform our understanding of the pandemic.

  • GitHub repo OpenSkyStacker

    Multi-platform stacker for deep-sky astrophotography.

    Project mention: You can send something to the Moon, for free! I'm creating a Lunar time capsule via Reddit - Sending up to 10mb of data to the Moon for up to 100,000 people! | reddit.com/r/space | 2021-01-25

    I'd like to contribute the source code for OpenSkyStacker, an astrophotography tool I made. I'm compressed it into a zip file that's 5MB:

  • GitHub repo BioExplorer

    The Blue Brain BioExplorer (BBBE) is a tool for scientists to extract and analyze scientific data from visualization and interactive exploration
