    Project mention: Shh: Simple Shell Scripting from Haskell | | 2023-11-25

    Those of you who use (or used) this as your shell: care to share your experience?

    It seems a lot less full-featured than, but maybe you don't need a lot of bells and whistles for regular usage. I mostly run build, execute, and install commands.

    I'm somewhat enticed at the possibility of being able to wrap common executables into forms that are typed (like nushell or elvish) and manipulate them in a way that leverages the type checker.

  • Healthchecks

  • mitogen

    Distributed self-replicating programs in Python

    Project mention: Mitogen speedup (the actual value) | /r/ansible | 2023-03-05

    It's an odd piece of code for 'self-replicating', and I'd say is a bit of obscure project, but it has something amazing: alternative strategies for Ansible to speedup playbooks. It's rough, badly supported, requires patching to run on modern Ansible versions, and you are on your own if you use it, but it's so fast, that's it's impossible to drop.
