  • Project mention: NeuralGPT - Building A Universal Multi-Purpose Framework For Cooperating LLMs | /r/AIPsychology | 2023-10-27

    First of all, I'd like it to be distributed for users to install as a hub running independently from any browser in the background - although with the possibility of accessing it's interface through a browser if necessary. If I'd have to give you some working examples of similar solutions, it would be something like connection of such apps like ChatAll with a service called SAMP that interconnects multiple apps/services provided by ESA CDPP and related to space weather and multiple satellite missions ( - yup, that's yet another of those weird hobbies of mine :P

  • Dash

  • ChakraCore

    ChakraCore is an open source Javascript engine with a C API.

  • Project mention: This year in Servo: over 1000 pull requests and beyond | | 2023-12-18

    I thought it would be a fun weird project to make Servo work with MS' abandoned JavaScript engine:

    Of course it is written in C++ and you'd probably want a pure Rust browser. But it is sad seeing that fairly complete open source JIT JavaScript engine sit and rot.

  • TiddlyWiki

    A self-contained JavaScript wiki for the browser, Node.js, AWS Lambda etc.

    > What does ownership mean here?

    It means owning the code and the data. With webapps, the code and data are hosted and owned, the users do not own the code, cannot run it independently. This is a clear dileneation between owner and user, and the owners can use that clear line to create artificial scarcity of various kinds. (The most popular being the subscription SaaS model). It's also easier to defend your IP since end users never see your binaries.

    I like to make my software single html files whenever possible. People can just save them and run them locally. Havent met anyone who cares yet though.

    I like that idea a lot, and I care. I think others care, but yes, it's a niche interest. Take a look at for an example of a fairly successful project that uses the single html format running locally. However it suffers from limitations on File|Save which often requires a separate runtime of some kind to support.

    Another project that approaches this ideal is, @jart's tiny, performant, featureful single-file webserver. In this case the "single file" is a server executable + zip whose state must be updated on the command-line, but I think hits a sweet spot in terms of practicality, and a global minima when it comes to minimizing dependencies. (Redbean bundles SQLite and Lua so it's also possible to do through-the-web state updates as in a traditional webapp.)

    My own project, Simpatico, aspires to be something along these lines. Eventually your browser tab is both a client and server process, connecting via websockets to other connected browsers, storing all state locally. I call this pattern "monomorphism", a play on the "isomorphic" javascript SPA. The server[2] is currently written in ~1 node file, but eventually I would like to port to redbean (and greenbean, the websocket version of redbean, but it isn't quite ready yet). The server grew several features to support a fast, practical BTD loop using markdown[1], and safe, performant execution on the public internet[2], but ultimately I'd like to pare it down to serving a single html file and allow the connected clients to provide all diversity of experience. I've used it to explore all kinds of browser apis, from crypto[3] to svg[4] to writing my own libraries (combine[4] and stree[5]). And it's all running locally, and easily hosted on a $5 VPS, and its all open source.

  • Cider

    A new cross-platform Apple Music experience based on Electron and Vue.js written from scratch with performance in mind. 🚀

  • Project mention: Spotify HiFi is still MIA after three years, and now so is my subscription | | 2024-02-23

    I looked into swapping to Apple Music before but couldn't find a way to play lossless music on Linux making swapping pointless. Apparently[0] decryption for lossless isn't supported for 3rd party clients.

    Anyone know of a way around this?

  • Project mention: HELP PLEASE I AM BEGGING HELP I WANT MY PRETTY COLOURS | /r/Notion | 2023-12-11

    So I've been using notion enhanced for a year now, and it's all been working fine and dandy until a couple months ago, and now whenever I try to open it, it's stuck on the loading screen. I deleted it and reinstalled it like 5 times, deleted notion and reinstalled it, restarted my computer and nada. Still not working. Google sends me to github (like for example this is literally my issue) but ya girl doesn't understand anything and commands scare me. I tried to follow what the nice internet people said to do, but I don't know what I'm doing and it didn't work. I'm losing my mind and my grip on reality. Please someone send help.
