    Project mention: New to management- Server backup - PaperMC | | 2022-05-18

    I have also used borg in the past. It will be slower but can also work.

  • Cython

    The most widely used Python to C compiler

    Project mention: My Experiences with Julia | | 2022-05-16

    Cython has long been an interesting alternative here - a gradually typed amalgam of Python & C that lets you write/compile Python extension modules without needing to learn much of the CPython API. You can even use --embed to compile your whole script file and -X infer_types.verbose=True to let you know where types are dynamic/implicit rather than declared. Several big core packages like scipy use this as well.

    Personally, I prefer Nim [2] which has more compile-time meta-programming support, is strongly typed from the outset, and has a lot of syntactic flexibility like UFCS, and many other goodies.



  • conan

    Conan - The open-source C/C++ package manager

    Project mention: What's your thoughts on sub module libraries in a large application? | | 2022-04-28

    I haven't used it much, since I don't do much C++, but Conan might work -

  • dumb-init

    A minimal init system for Linux containers

    Project mention: Show HN: EnvKey 2.0 – End-To-End Encrypted Environments (now open source) | | 2022-03-30
  • glad

    Multi-Language Vulkan/GL/GLES/EGL/GLX/WGL Loader-Generator based on the official specs.

    Project mention: Moving from P5.js for better performance | | 2022-05-01

    Going parallel on the GPU is where you see these massive performance increases. OpenGL's GLSL shader pipeline is great for that, but if you decide to build up your own OpenGL back-end from scratch it's a steep learning curve. It's really well documented though. I would recommend SDL2 + GLAD for window management, context creation, and extension wrangling.

  • Scout APM

    Less time debugging, more time building. Scout APM allows you to find and fix performance issues with no hassle. Now with error monitoring and external services monitoring, Scout is a developer's best friend when it comes to application development.

  • m2cgen

    Transform ML models into a native code (Java, C, Python, Go, JavaScript, Visual Basic, C#, R, PowerShell, PHP, Dart, Haskell, Ruby, F#, Rust) with zero dependencies

    Project mention: If anyone has a good source for learning VHDL basics from scrarch, please recommend. | | 2022-03-01

    I think another good approach might be to study some existing VHDL-based open source projects. For example, here is a list of the most-stared VHDL GitHub repositories.

  • youtube

    Code from the Engineer Man YouTube channel. Please do not submit pull requests, they will be ignored/closed. The code in the repo needs to remain as it was in the video. (by engineer-man)

  • codechecker

    CodeChecker is an analyzer tooling, defect database and viewer extension for the Clang Static Analyzer and Clang Tidy

    Project mention: IKOS: Static analyzer for C/C++ based on the theory of Abstract Interpretation | | 2022-04-20

    Another open source alternative is CodeChecker [1] with the Clang static analyzer [2]. Make sure the Clang toolchain has been compiled with Z3 [3] support for better results (it's the case in Debian stable), particularly for code doing bit operations. It supports cross files analysis ("cross translation units" or CTU), which last time I checked was not the case for IKOS and helps improve diagnostics.

    It's not completely turn key if you use it for a cross compiled code base, but once set-up I prefer it to another professional tool: much less false alarms. Although it's good to have both, each one found issues not seen by the other.


  • pyo

    Python DSP module

    Project mention: Looking for an audio/music lib | | 2021-09-23

    For example, here's someone's hobby project: a C compiler written in python.

  • trezor-firmware

    :lock: Trezor Firmware Monorepo

    Project mention: What to buy? | | 2022-05-18

    Hi, if you need some comparison of Trezor models, you can find a tab with such info on our website if you scroll a bit lower:

  • compiledb

    Tool for generating Clang's JSON Compilation Database files for make-based build systems.

    Project mention: clangd beginner problem | | 2022-03-02

    There is also compiledb that works directly with your make file to generate the compile_commands.json.

  • bottleneck

    Fast NumPy array functions written in C (by pydata)

    Project mention: Update on my Python, C++ and Rust Library | | 2021-10-29

    Fast Array Manipulation in Python: Since Numpy is the de facto standard for storing multi-dimensional data, any performance gain you see using librapid math kernels will need to be realized on data which probably started its life as a numpy array, and needs to be passed to another tool as a numpy array. Hopefully there will be (or already is?) a way to build a librapid array out of a numpy array without copying the data and vice versa. In fact I might suggest that librapid focus on the fast math operations and simply become an accelerator for numpy arrays. For instance, look at CuPy which provides GPU-implemented operations within a numpy-compatible API, and Bottleneck which simply provides fast C-based implementations of some otherwise slow parts of Numpy. Also note that numpy *can* be multi-threaded depending on the operation and some environment variables. Single-threaded to Single-threaded I think you will be hard-pressed to beat Numpy on general math operations, but that doesn't mean there aren't specific "kernels" that are more specialized that can be greatly improved with a C++ back-end.

  • gcovr

    generate code coverage reports with gcc/gcov

    Project mention: gcovr 5.1 released | | 2022-03-26
  • cmake-conan

    CMake wrapper for conan C and C++ package manager

    Project mention: Debug Conan recipes in VS Code | | 2022-03-14

    using conan from within cmake you can use this, or just write your own execute process way of calling it .

  • prometeo

    An experimental Python-to-C transpiler and domain specific language for embedded high-performance computing

    Project mention: Profiling and Analyzing Performance of Python Programs | | 2022-01-04

    If you don't mind switching to a little different syntax of Python, then you also might want to take a look at prometeo - an embedded domain specific language based on Python, specifically aimed at scientific computing. Prometeo programs transpile to pure C code and its performance can be comparable with hand-written C code.
