  • GitHub repo yadm

    Yet Another Dotfiles Manager

    Project mention: Looking for a Github like solution for personal file backups | | 2022-01-15

    You could try yadm. I use it and it's awesome. I keep perfect track of my home and system-wide files I define. It saved my ass a while ago where I deleted all my root snapshots and the root subvolume. lol, right? It was a surprisingly seamless experience putting the config files back in their places altogether and getting my customizations and changes back on.

  • GitHub repo dynaconf

    Configuration Management for Python ⚙

    Project mention: How to organize Django settings | | 2021-11-12

    I've been meaning to take a look at lately. Seems really great, can even load values dynamically from external sources. Seems like the next evolution in configuration IMO ¯_(ツ)_/¯

  • GitHub repo autorandr

    Auto-detect the connected display hardware and load the appropriate X11 setup using xrandr

    Project mention: How do you handle variable monitor configurations? | | 2022-01-17

    First setup all the display configurations, ignoring xmobar. Using something like and make it easy. Now all you have to do is somehow invoke autorandr --change every time there's a connection or disconnection event.

  • GitHub repo gin-config

    Gin provides a lightweight configuration framework for Python

    Project mention: Equivalent framework as Gin for PyTorch | | 2022-01-04

    Hi, does any of you know is there is an equivalent of this framework ( for PyTorch?

  • GitHub repo pyinfra

    pyinfra automates infrastructure super fast at massive scale. It can be used for ad-hoc command execution, service deployment, configuration management and more.

    Project mention: What would you use to configure VMs? | | 2021-09-16

    I personally like pyinfra a lot.

  • 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.

  • GitHub repo strictyaml

    Type-safe YAML parser and validator.

    Project mention: how to build a JSON parser? | | 2021-12-26

    Don't say "it's just about the quality of the implementing team".

  • GitHub repo eNMS

    An enterprise-grade vendor-agnostic network automation platform.

    Project mention: on jenkins, build tools, etc - having a terrible experience | | 2021-11-17

    I'm used to just slapping together some renewable code and throwing it in emms and it just works. If there is something that doesn't work ... I just code around it. No app that tells me some insane limitation. Just a couple lines of bash or python.

  • GitHub repo kas

    Setup tool for bitbake based projects (by siemens)

    Project mention: First steps with the kas build system | | 2021-11-03

    I often work with the Yocto Project to build custom Linux distributions for a various range of products. One of the main struggles you can have while working with this tool is managing multiple git repositories in order to produce a successful build. A new tool called kas tries to simplify this process; let's see how by building a distribution for a Pine64 board.

  • GitHub repo ConfZ

    ConfZ is a configuration management library for Python based on pydantic.

    Project mention: Show HN: Python configuration management library I built | | 2021-10-21

    A python library for parsing multiple types of config files, envvars & command line arguments that takes the headache out of setting app configurations.

  • GitHub repo spock

    spock is a framework that helps manage complex parameter configurations during research and development of Python applications (by fidelity)

    Project mention: [D] I'm new and scrappy. What tips do you have for better logging and documentation when training or hyperparameter training? | | 2021-05-24

    We wrote Spock which actually sits in the middle ground between Hydra and OmegaConf (I’m of the same opinion that Hydra does a little too much feature wise). You can do hierarchical composition within the markdown of any JSON, YAML, or TOML files by simply using the config argument. No code needed to merge. Docs are here if you’re interested.

  • GitHub repo pipcs

    PIPCS is Python Configuration System

    Project mention: [P] Minimal PyTorch Library for Natural Evolution Strategies | | 2021-04-16

    My main goal with this project was to test my new configuration system library pipcs and see how practical to write a library with it. Also, it can act as an example for pipcs.
