    Project mention: Running a Node.js App (Angular/React) on Android using Termux | | 2023-09-29

    First, we need to install Termux (terminal) App from F-Droid * (or from the Termux GitHub Repository). We will not install the Termux from Google Play Store due to lack of updates there.

  • libGDX

    Project mention: OSS Game Engines are increasing their stars on GitHub due to Unity's missteps | | 2023-09-19

    For anyone interested, LibGDX[1] is a very nice open-source game engine for Java. It is cross-platform (mobile, PC/mac, web). Very popular and well maintained, too.

  • SikuliX1

    SikuliX version 2.0.0+ (2019+)

    Project mention: AutoHotkey v2 Official Release Announcement | | 2023-01-28

    I've been using SikuliX [1] instead of AHK for a while now, only downside is that it uses jython so it's stuck on 2.7, but I don't use it for anything complicated enough that it really matters. Also I mainly use it for long running, rarely used automation, so I'm not sure how it would compare in terms of responsiveness for tasks like text expansion.

    Also I did a quick search and I assume this [2] is the library you mentioned?


  • snowflake

    Graphical SFTP client and terminal emulator with helpful utilities (by subhra74)

    Project mention: I built my own tool to access all my servers - Let me know what you think! | /r/homelab | 2023-03-29

    I always wanted to have an easy connection overview and file access to all of my homelab servers, including things like docker containers and WSL instances that run on them. I have also always been a fan of GUI remote file managers like WinSCP, Termius, Muon (I just prefer them to the CLI workflows) but sadly they only work if you can connect via SSH or FTP based protocols. While it's trivial to connect to a top level server through SSH, connecting via proxys and to nested machines such as bare docker containers, has always been a pain.

  • mage

  • TUI-ConsoleLauncher

    Linux CLI Launcher for Android

    Project mention: The best Android Launcher in 2023 ? | /r/androidapps | 2023-04-26

    I've been rocking T-UI since like 6 years now and haven't looked back. It doesn't get more minimal than that. Plus it gives you all the benefits of a CLI, and is way less system heavy than T-E-L.

  • robovm

    Ahead of time compiler for JVM bytecode targetting iOS, Mac OSX and Linux

    Project mention: Backward Compatibility, Go 1.21, and Go 2 | | 2023-08-14

    Naturally depends on the use case, yet they work good enough to be in business for 20 years.

    Android 5 & 6 (only changed back into JIT/AOT due to long compile times),

    Unfortunely the best well known, Excelsior JET, is no longer in business, most likely due to GraalVM and OpenJ9 being available as free beer, while PTC, Aicas Codename One are safe in their domains.

    There is also RoboVM ( as free beer, however it actually started as a commercial product, and the acquisition from Xamarin kind of stagnated it (naturally).

  • termux-monet

  • SystemTray

    Project mention: Announcing tray-gtk 0.1.0 | /r/Kotlin | 2023-04-30

    For some time now I was forced to use the SystemTray library when I wanted to have a nice tray menu/icon for the Linux apps I develop. What I didn't like about it was that it was pretty bloated and didn't work well with ProGuard.
