    If I could get it working how I want, I'd spend a lot more time in eDEX-UI. Once I can find more time I'll probably contribute to it as well.

  • GitHub repo electron-react-boilerplate

    Project mention: Which language to fit my project | | 2021-02-20
  • GitHub repo Lowdb

    ⚡️ lowdb is a small local JSON database powered by Lodash (supports Node, Electron and the browser)

    Project mention: Unconventional Databases | | 2021-02-12

    Files are the most flexible of all. They can store anything in any format you want, but you have to write the querying logic yourself, so it's best to stick to simple formats and don't use them for data where you need complex queries. I think sticking with simple data that fits in a key=value format or JSON (like lowdb) is best.

  • GitHub repo responsively-app

    A modified web browser that helps in responsive web development. A web developer's must have dev-tool.

  • GitHub repo KeeWeb

    Free cross-platform password manager compatible with KeePass

    Project mention: bye LastPass | | 2021-02-16

    Consider open-source KeePass and/or KeeWeb. KeeWeb uses the file format established and maintained by KeePass, so you can mix and match them. (For example, I use KeeWeb on my desktop, but Keepass2Android on my phone.) You provide the online storage space -- something like Dropbox, Google Drive or OneDrive will work if you don't have a server of your own. The downside is that you have to get your hands dirty a bit figuring out how it works; but once you do, you realize you have control of everything.

  • GitHub repo electron-packager

    Project mention: Cross-distro maintaining of a project | | 2020-12-26
  • GitHub repo nuclear

    Streaming music player that finds free music for you

    Project mention: Why is newpipe better than using YouTube? | | 2021-02-18

    I hope eventually all of the guys muddling around this will realize the obviousness of the truth: we need a metadata-first player with Artist, Track, Album Linked Open Data entities, where the actual data are just sources for that entity, and you can have multiple providers (YouTube, Soundcloud, Bandcamp, torrents, IPFS, anything). Some tracks you listen to often you can "cache" on the SD card, so you don't hit the network AGAIN for the same data (cell towers and servers use power you know). Other times you want to make room and you blow away some of the data. But if you've got reception and a locally unavailable track shows up in a playlist it will just fetch it from one of the other sources. If some uploader decided to cripple your playlists with link rot, no problem, all of the metadata is intact and in your control, you just need to find another provider for that CreativeWork. Your metadata then becomes a monolithic single-source-of-truth database of information like "Blind Observatory is a project of David Pasternack", "this track belongs with tracks of the style called Chillrave", "this track is via Alice", "heard this in a mixtape by Bob". At which point it becomes obvious you shouldn't be handling the fabric of your digital life in anything less than a top quality FOSS graph database of sorts. You tend to that directly, then glue code deals deterministically with stuff like writes to embedded tags so the music files are portable.

  • GitHub repo beaker

    An experimental peer-to-peer Web browser

    Project mention: DeGoogle.Life Website/Blog Launched | | 2021-02-15
