  • GitHub repo Sabaki

    An elegant Go board and SGF editor for a more civilized age.

    Project mention: A new Python package to play Go online from a physical board. | | 2021-11-17

    However, I think this code should be pretty easy to read and should be pretty universal. You can play with any computer board whether it's OGS, KGS, or my personal favorite Sabaki since the code is just looking for an image on a screen. You can easily add in better stone detection to suit your own preference of speed versus accuracy on whatever old computer you happen to have.

    Open source PostgreSQL GUI client for macOS, Linux and Windows

    Project mention: PostgreSQL 14 Released | | 2021-09-30

    I've been trying out Beekeeper Studio [] recently, and like that it supports both MySQL and PostgreSQL (and others I don't use). The interface takes a little bit to get used to, but it's been pretty powerful for me.

    Before that, or when I'm in a rush to just get something done as I adjust to Beekeeper, I use Postbird (an Electron app) []

  • GitHub repo react-native-universal-monorepo

    React Native boilerplate supporting multiple platforms: Android, iOS, macOS, Windows, web, browser extensions, Electron.

    Project mention: Ask HN: What Stack for mobile/desktop cross-platform native development in 2021? | | 2021-10-20

    React Native is your best bet.




    RN desktop support is weak. But your mobile apps will work quite differently to your desktop apps anyway. And you probably want something that can run on the web too. So for desktop you just put your web app in Electron.

    The difference between mobile and web will mean having to implement different routing and components, but you can share a lot of code.

    Flutter is the new kid on the block.
