  • bat

    A cat(1) clone with wings.

    Project mention: What are the top 3 most useful things that you have hosted over the years? | | 2022-01-24

    Really like Joplin still, but been using Obsidian a few months now and I like the feeling on Android way more. Snappier and easy to navigate. And I also like to just vim the notes straight in the terminal sometimes or read them with bat or glow

  • fd

    Project mention: Ask HN: Best practical method to compare the speed some PL interpreters | | 2022-01-28

    Depends how many different tasks you want to compare, and how many different interpreters you want to compare, and what you want to do with the comparison.

  • hexyl

    A command-line hex viewer

    Project mention: huxdemp: A modernized hexdump, with colorized output, column reordering, and Lua plugins! | | 2021-12-10

    huxdemp has: - Colorized output! No more straining your eyes to distinguish different patterns of data. (from hexyl and many others) - Color customization! Depicted in the above screenshot, HUXD_COLORS can be set to customize the colors used. (Original.) - Column reordering! ([screenshot]()) The -f flag can be set to show output however you'd like. (Original.) - Lua plugins! If you pass an unrecognized value to -f, it will try to load and run a Lua script by that name in $LUA_PATH, allowing for user-defined columns. E.g., in [this screenshot](), an ebcdic column was defined with [this script](). (Original.) - CP437 output! The -t cp437 flag can be passed, ensuring that every byte value, from 0x0 to 0xFF, will have a unique glyph in the ASCII column (as opposed to using . for all non-printable characters). This makes distinguishing binary patterns in data far easier. ([screenshot](), [screenshot]()) (from xd) - Highlighting of Unicode codepoints! With the -u flag, bytes in the byte column that encode the same Unicode codepoint will be "highlighted". ([screenshot]()) - Automatic paging! If the output is too large to be viewed on a single screen, it will automatically be piped to less(1).

  • grex

    A command-line tool and library for generating regular expressions from user-provided test cases

    Project mention: RegExr: Learn, Build and Test Regex | | 2022-01-27

    If I understood what you mean, then yes, I bout one (powered by doing the heavy lifting).

  • pastel

    A command-line tool to generate, analyze, convert and manipulate colors

    Project mention: fd is looking for contributors | | 2021-08-08

    fd is my very first Rust project. In fact, if you go back in (Git) history, the project was originally written in C++. I have created various other Rust command-line tools since then, but I love coming back to fd, as I personally use it the most.

  • onefetch

  • fselect

    Project mention: Fselect – a CLI tool to find files with “not quite SQL” query language | | 2021-12-31
  • alass

    "Automatic Language-Agnostic Subtitle Synchronization"

    Project mention: AI could end foreign-language subtitles | | 2022-01-20

    With tools like alass[1] (using it to synchronise against the original language subtitles) it is about as close to solved you can get.

    All of the attempts I've seen of using audio information to synchronise subtitles have been awful (some languages subtitle everything, even screams and incoherent shouts -- such as Japanese -- while others only subtitle dialogue and often rework dialogue for the purposes of making the subtitles short enough to be readable easily).


  • dirble

    Project mention: nccgroup/dirble - Fast directory scanning and scraping tool | | 2021-04-12

    Project mention: Whats the most efficient way to work with sprites and equipment swapping, if I don't want to use rigging with simple transform deforming? | | 2022-01-07

    This is a nifty app that actually generates inbetween frames for you. I haven't used it beyond trying it out a few times long ago, but it actually worked really well at the time.

    Project mention: anewer 0.1.5: fast filter for duplicate lines in stdin | | 2021-02-26

    You can think of anewer as uniq for unsorted text. It's my first rust project and I blatently rewrote a go tool (tomnomnom/anew) I'm using for pentesting. It's not limited to bug bounty hunting tho. Just very handy when you work with textfiles. Due to the use of rust and a line hashing approach it's least twice as fast. It works well for very big files too. As I wrote it's my first rust project, so I'm open to feedback, tips or even feature wishes, if you have some. :)
