It uses MMKV by Tencent under the hood on Android and iOS both that is used by their WeChat app(more than 1 Billion users).

    Project mention: Zelda 64 has been fully decompiled, potentially opening the door for mods and ports | reddit.com/r/Games | 2021-11-27

    In the world of retro games, an example of a project that should definitely be in the clear is OpenRCT2, which mimics the functionality of Rollercoaster Tycoon 2 and is compatible with its data files but is a novel codebase.

    Depends on what kind of graphics programming you are wanting to do. If you are looking towards like experiential or generative or stuff of that ilk, I'd look at https://libcinder.org or https://openframeworks.cc

  • GitHub repo ConEmu

    Customizable Windows terminal with tabs, splits, quake-style, hotkeys and more

    Project mention: Display Current Git Branch on iTerm2 | dev.to | 2021-11-04

    As a Windows user, I generally use Conemu Console for my console and it has a sweet future in which you can see the current git branch on the terminal. After using Mac I wanted to see the same future on iTerm2. I found the way and I want to share it with you 🙂

    Project mention: Automating Clickonce deployment for .net 5.0 Winforms. Just went through scripting my deploy with power shell and wrote it up. | reddit.com/r/dotnet | 2021-11-20

    But the command line tooling for deploying separate channels (e.g., dev/test/prod) is really poor and in 2021 this is table stakes. Projects like squirrel have been spun up to get around this.

  • GitHub repo olive

    Free open-source non-linear video editor

    Project mention: Difficulties grappling with design | reddit.com/r/olive | 2021-11-17

    Since I do pretty basic editing I probably haven't felt much the clunkiness of the number slider, so I can't say about that, putting that aside, I'm finding Olive to be very good. Now, it's true that node driven editing can feel very alien at first, but as I started to use it more I found it pretty comfortable and more flexible, I ditched Kdenlive because it crashes often on my low end PC and after getting the hang of Olive I felt that the traditional editing experience was, yes more intuitive, but, actually more clunky to adjust, not saying that Kdenlive isn't a great video editing application in its own right though. Regarding the docs, proper ones would be great to have, for now I have found the wiki but I haven't used it so I can't confirm whether the info there is outdated, it's also understandable for alpha stage software not to be super documented, if I may suggest a channel that has been making tutorials on how to do certain things, I have watched a few of the videos from Malaky Studios which helped me quite a bit.

  • GitHub repo AutoHotkey_L

    AutoHotkey - macro-creation and automation-oriented scripting utility for Windows.

    Project mention: My [Automated] Trello Movie Organizer | dev.to | 2021-10-20

    I always felt like I was in between technologies and didn't possess the necessary skills to pull off what I wanted to achieve. I used AutoHotkey, C# with WinForms, WPF, I even went the painful route of vanilla HTML. Ultimately, these projects all failed.

  • GitHub repo openscad

    OpenSCAD - The Programmers Solid 3D CAD Modeller

    Project mention: GraphSCAD – A User Friendly Nodal Editor for OpenSCAD | news.ycombinator.com | 2021-10-10

    > It’s not FOSS

    GraphSCAD "probably" is FOSS and is GPL software, as it uses OpenSCAD API, which is covered by GPL License[0]; same way as all Blender add-ons should be under GPL[1] because they use Blender API, which is also GPL.

  • GitHub repo Mumble

    Mumble is an open-source, low-latency, high quality voice chat software.

    Project mention: TIFU by telling my gay friend that playing Minecraft with him and his family was making me homophobic. | reddit.com/r/tifu | 2021-11-17

    In any case, I stuck it out and pretended I was having fun, even though I wasn't. I hated every single second of the three hours we played together, after the 1 hour getting connected. But I was doing this to give him a chance to bond with his kids, and not for fun, so I ploughed on through my unhappiness. His kids LOVED it. I have many MANY years of experience, and know a lot of fun tricks I learned with my kids. When we ended, his kids told me they wanted to play with me again soon. I laughed and said "Sure, no problem!" (We were chatting using our home mumble server).

  • GitHub repo cuberite

    A lightweight, fast and extensible game server for Minecraft

    Project mention: Pi 4 running multiple applications at once | reddit.com/r/raspberry_pi | 2021-10-20

  • GitHub repo multipass

    Multipass orchestrates virtual Ubuntu instances

    Project mention: Use Docker Context to switch between different solutions | dev.to | 2021-11-17

    You may be on the lookout for a replacement to Docker Desktop at the moment. If you are, you may be wanting to trial the different solutions. You're going to need to know what is involved, and what the different cost models include. This post is going to show you how you can use docker context to run the different systems in parallel. The two solutions this post will cover is minikube and multipass.

    Python for Windows (pywin32) Extensions

    Project mention: Where is win32com for Python 3.10 | reddit.com/r/Python | 2021-10-05

    The source on github for win32com seems to list a version for 3.10, see https://github.com/mhammond/pywin32/blob/main/make_all.bat but it's not on pypi.
