  • Project mention: A ‘Software Developer’ Knows Enough to Deliver Working Software Alone and in Teams | /r/programming | 2023-12-06

    It depends on the scale of the project but man, if you can't build a simple CRUD app in your preferred stack and deploy it in some fashion (even if it's just a binary posted on some website, kinda like Exa) then that's just disappointing...

  • skim

    Fuzzy Finder in rust!

  • Project mention: Bash Menu | /r/archlinux | 2023-05-25

    I really like using something like fuzzy search for menus like these. is pretty cool in that it works both in a terminal, X11 and on Wayland, so if you want to do something graphical later you can easily migrate. There's also fzf and skim, which work similarly but are only for the terminal.
