  • fkill

    Fabulously kill processes. Cross-platform.

    Project mention: Alternatives to installing npm packages globally | | 2022-06-20

    Generally, npm libraries installed globally aren't standard library you'd use in your programs but more like CLI tools or full blown programs. As an example, fkill is the first one that comes to my mind.

  • slap

    Project mention: Command line applications | | 2022-09-18

  • carbon-now-cli

    🎨 Beautiful images of your code — from right inside your terminal.

    Project mention: I need some help getting to the colors of Neovim | | 2022-08-25

    I'm aware that carbon has a nice CLI that could be used for this. I'd like to avoid this option because: (1) privacy concerns: sending the user's content remotely, (2) performance: running locally has to be faster than making API calls, plus it works offline. I'm also aware that you can run Carbon locally, which takes care of the privacy concerns and the performance to some extent, but it's just a local website now, and running a whole browser instance just for that... yikes!

    Project mention: Simplest way to run a website on your computer? | | 2022-10-17

    For example, PHP provides a builtin testing server; I think python has one too, and there are various options for nodejs, e.g. live-server.

  • vtop

    Wow such top. So stats. More better than regular top.

    Project mention: Is there any maintaned alternative to vtop, i.e. a system monitor with Vim bindings? | | 2022-08-25

    I was looking for a system monitor tool like top but with Vim bindings, mainly for monitoring CPU usage, and stumbled across vtop. It's great, but it hasn't been updated in four years. Is there any active fork of vtop available, or do you guys know of any similar tool out there?
