  • rich

    Rich is a Python library for rich text and beautiful formatting in the terminal.

    Project mention: Neat Parallel Output in Python | | 2024-02-25

    There is an open issue [1] on GitHub to make it more modular and get rid of markdown and syntax highlighting but I have no hope for rich to get more minimal.

  • tqdm

    :zap: A Fast, Extensible Progress Bar for Python and CLI

    Project mention: Neat Parallel Output in Python | | 2024-02-25

    yeah my code needs to use multiprocessing, which does not play nice with tqdm. thanks for the tip about positions though, that helped me search more effectively and came up with two promising comments. unmerged / require some workarounds, but might just work:

  • glances

  • kitty

    Cross-platform, fast, feature-rich, GPU based terminal

    Project mention: Warp, the modern terminal, is now available for Linux | | 2024-02-22

    A terminal with built-in telemetry and a pricing model... Just what I never wanted!

    To avoid being too negative, I'll offer the option of Kitty[1]. My current favorite terminal. Supports many features.

    Including my personal favorites:

    * ctrl+c (as opposed to stupid things like ctrl+shift+c) to copy data only when you have content selected. Otherwise, ctrl+c sends a sigint like normal.

    * font ligature support (a controversial feature)

    Project mention: Copilot for your GitHub stars | | 2023-11-20
  • gdb-dashboard

    Project mention: Everything You Never Wanted to Know About CMake (Redux) | | 2023-06-25

    Disclaimer: I'm making a competing build system.

    I won't tell you specific build systems, but I will tell you what to look for.

    Look for power. Unlimited power. [1]

    Usually, this means a few things:

    1. The build system uses a general-purpose language, even if the language needs features to be added.

    2. The build system does not reduce the power of the general-purpose language. For example, say it starts with Python but prohibits recursion. In that case, you know it is not unlimited power. Looking at you, Starlark.

    3. The build can be dynamically changed, i.e., the build is not statically determined before it even begins.

    4. Each task has unlimited power. This means that the task can use a general-purpose language, not just run external processes.

    5. And there has to be some thought put it in user experience.

    Why are these important? Well, let's look at why with CMake, which fails all of them.

    For #1, CMake's language started as a limited language for enumerating lists. (Hence, CMakeLists.txt is the file name.) And yet, it's grown to be as general-purpose as possible. Why? Because when you need an if statement, nothing else will do, and when you need a loop, nothing else will do.

    And that brings us to #2: if CMake's language started limited, are there still places where it's limited? I argue yes, and I point to the article where it says that your couldn't dynamically call functions until recently. There are probably other places.

    For #3, CMake's whole model precludes it. CMake generates the build upfront then expects another build system to actually execute it. There is no changing the build without regenerating it. (And even then, CMake did a poor job until the addition of `--fresh`.) A fully dynamic build should be able to add targets and make others targets depend on those new targets dynamically, among other things.

    For #4, obviously CMake limits what tasks can do because Ninja and Make limit tasks to running commands.

    As another example, to implement a LaTeX target, you technically need a while loop to iterate until a fixed point. To do that with Make and Ninja, you have to jump through hoops or use an external script that may not work on all platforms.

    CMake obviously fails #5, and to see how much other build systems fail it, just look for comments pouring hate on those build systems. CMake fails the most, but I haven't seen one that passes yet.

    As an example, CMake barely got a debugger. Wow! Cool! It's been 20 years! My build system will have a debugger in public release #2 (one after the MVP) that will be capable of outputting to multiple TTY's like gdb-dashboard. [2] They should have had this years ago!

    Should other comments suggest specific build systems, like the one that suggested Bazel, judge them by this list. Some will be better than others. None will pass everything, IMO, which is why I'm making my own.

    Discovering the drop down console was a revelation.

    An homage:

  • Pokemon-Terminal

    Pokemon terminal themes.

  • haxor-news

    Browse Hacker News like a haxor: A Hacker News command line interface (CLI).

  • tmuxp

    🖥️ Session manager for tmux, build on libtmux.

    Project mention: Zellij – A terminal workspace with batteries included (tmux alternative) | | 2024-02-05

    Using tmux + tmuxp[1] you can load a pre-configured session and execute arbitrary shell commands for the session, window and pane. I use this to set up shells and editors in the correct dirs (and/or hosts), load lang environments, set env vars and source some zsh aliases and functions that I only want per project. The end result is that I can set up my dev environment (shells with different environments, neovim windows, test runner, various linters I don't wannt integrate into nvim) with a single "tmuxp load ".


  • s-tui

    Terminal-based CPU stress and monitoring utility

    Project mention: Is X1 Carbon gen 6 a decent (beginner) Linux machine? | /r/thinkpad | 2023-05-08

    There's a way of doing it via s-tui.

  • rainbowstream
