  • jql

    A JSON Query Language CLI tool (by yamafaktory)

    Project mention: [Media] Tabled [v0.9.0] - An easy to use library for pretty print tables | | 2022-09-30

    this is awesome. I came across jql before, but your implementation looks like it has much more feature parity with jq. Are your API's primarily focused on terminal usage? or is it designed in a way that it would be easy to import & use as a rust crate?

  • InfluxDB

    Access the most powerful time series database as a service. Ingest, store, & analyze all types of time series data in a fully-managed, purpose-built database. Keep data forever with low-cost storage and superior data compression.

  • shoop

    scp has a run-in with mosh (alpha)

  • huniq

    Filter out duplicates on the command line. Replacement for `sort | uniq` optimized for speed (10x faster) when sorting is not needed.

    Project mention: I/O is no longer the bottleneck | | 2022-11-26

    `sort | uniq` is really slow for this, as it has to sort the entire input first. I use `huniq` which is way faster for this. I'm sure there are many similar options.

  • tiger

    Tiger is a visual tool to author game spritesheets and their metadata. (by agersant)

    Project mention: Announcing Tiger 1.0 — a visual tool to author game spritesheets and their metadata, built with Tauri. | | 2023-03-10

    Mostly because it takes time and effort to support other platforms (QA, distribution, some implementation details). I focused on Windows because that is what I use, and is also the most popular platform for game developers. If you would like to help support other platforms, I wrote a little more info here.

  • rsw-rs

    🦞 wasm-pack based build tool

  • rust-ci-release-template

    A Github Actions based CI release template for Rust binaries

  • SonarLint

    Clean code begins in your IDE with SonarLint. Up your coding game and discover issues early. SonarLint is a free plugin that helps you find & fix bugs and security issues from the moment you start writing code. Install from your favorite IDE marketplace today.

  • lyon-deck-toolbox

    Lyon's Deck Toolbox, an installer for a collection of tools and utilities to enhance the experience with the Steam Deck.

    Project mention: I didn’t know that the SteamDeck system takes more than 40GB itself which makes the 64GB useless | | 2023-01-07

    Do yourself a big favor, get a large microsd (512gb-1tb) and look at for the btrfs filesystem compression mod. It will help you reduce file sizes.

  • backpack
