  • Project mention: Ask HN: Interesting TUIs (text user interfaces), maybe forgotten ones? | news.ycombinator.com | 2024-05-06

    I'm a maintainer of Ratatui (a rust TUI crate). Here's a few links



    https://discord.com/channels/1070692720437383208/10729061831... (made with ratatui channel on our discord server)

    We encourage our users to use https://github.com/charmbracelet/vhs to build out demos that look neat.

    My particular favorite of the bunch (from a look and feel perspective) is https://github.com/zaghaghi/openapi-tui

    Also, not ratatui, but worth a look: https://github.com/rothgar/awesome-tuis

  • duf

    Disk Usage/Free Utility - a better 'df' alternative

  • Project mention: Go: What We Got Right, What We Got Wrong | news.ycombinator.com | 2024-01-04

    Not sure these are really popular, but I cannot resist advertising a few utilities written in Go that I regularly use in my daily workflow:

    - gdu: a NCDU clone, much faster on SSD mounts [1]

    - duf: a `df` clone with a nicer interface [2]

    - massren: a `vidir` clone (simpler to use but with fewer options) [3]

    - gotop: a `top` clone [4]

    - micro: a nice TUI editor [5]

    Building this kind of tools in Go makes sense, as the executables are statically compiled and are thus easy to install on remote servers.

  • sampler

    Tool for shell commands execution, visualization and alerting. Configured with a simple YAML file.

  • Project mention: Bus ETA | /r/commandline | 2023-11-16

    Hi ! I'm currently in the process of building myself dashboards using sampler and / or WTF. I want a section with the live ETA of some buses stop from STM. I know they have an SMS option so that may be a lead but i've figured there might be a better way using iBus or something. Thanks in advance !!

    You can still find terminal interfaces for a lot of these things, including Slack: https://github.com/jpbruinsslot/slack-term. I don't use Emacs but I imagine you could integrate that somehow if you wanted to.

  • progressbar

  • Project mention: When creating console based applications how do you replicate the following realtime updates: | /r/golang | 2023-12-07

    For example, https://github.com/schollz/progressbar seems to be a common implementation. You can see in the code that the package clears the current line each time before it writes the new rendered progress bar:

  • walk

  • Project mention: Walk a Terminal File Manager | news.ycombinator.com | 2023-10-29
  • darktile

    :waning_crescent_moon: Darktile is a GPU rendered terminal emulator designed for tiling window managers.

  • Project mention: Show HN: Hucksh – A Shell with a Good Memory | news.ycombinator.com | 2023-12-21

    * The terminal emulator is a fork of Darktile (https://github.com/liamg/darktile) with very few changes.

    This is not a SaaS. You download code and run the front- and back-end yourself, like ssh/sshd. (Except it doesn't run as root.)

    This is a commercial product. Without a license, the app limits you to a single top-level window, with two shell tabs. (Similar to a single iTerm window with two tabs.) With a license, as many windows and tabs as you like.

    I'm looking for any kind of feedback whatsoever, positive or negative, from the app itself, to the documentation and other online information, to this very post.

    hucksh is currently available for macOS and Linux.
