    Project mention: Romanized lyrics on Spotify!! | /r/kpoppers | 2023-07-21

    Anyone wondering, I'm using Spicetify on my computer together with some extra extensions to get what the image shows. It works for both Windows & Mac and it's pretty easy and free to set up.

    Project mention: For achieving the widest adoption among Windows users, which commonly used scripting language would be best suited for a CLI program?% | /r/AskProgramming | 2023-03-10

    Although I'm happy there is a way to bundle Node.js apps with support for pnpm, and for a modern-ish version of Node.js, it's somewhat slow in my experience to build locally. Interactivity doesn't have the greatest ecosystem there, especially with TypeScript. Best library I've found is Enquirer.
