  • dotdrop

    Project mention: How do you move machines and keep your configs? | | 2022-02-11

    There are so many solutions to this problem. dotdrop works really well. GNU Stow is a thing too. I use dotdrop because it supports the concept of profiles for different machines, and you can use Jinja2 template logic in your configs.

  • fontpreview

    Highly customizable and minimal font previewer written in bash (by sdushantha)

    Project mention: Fontpreview for wayland | | 2021-12-18

    For example this bash script previews fonts installed in your system. This one uses programs like sxiv, xdotool .There are similiar projects using other programs like ueburzug. These are programs are not compatible with Wayland (natively ofcourse). Is there any alternative for Wayland to preview fonts like that ? Or is it even possible currently ? I would really want to rewrite it for Wayland.

  • git-worktree-switcher

    Switch between git worktrees with speed. :zap:

    Project mention: Git Worktrees - git's old hidden feature you never knew | | 2022-04-13

    For the terminal, another great tool I've found is a little bit less main stream, is Git worktree switcher! ⚡ . This little script can be installed quite easily and provides a nice way to switch between worktrees with fuzzy find support. In the example above, I can just do wt fix-css and the script takes me to the fix-css worktree directory, and I can also jump back to the main working tree with wt - . This also renders my second function completely useless.

  • dradio

    A simple way to listen to your favorite radio staion

    Project mention: listen to your favorite radio station by dradio | | 2021-11-07


  • tools

    various linux scripts (by bAndie91)

    Project mention: Like JQ, but for HTML | | 2021-09-07

    parsel[0] is a python script in front of the identically named python lib, and extracts parts of the HTML by CSS selector. the advantage of it compared to most similar tools is that you can navigate in the DOM tree up and down to find precisely what you want if the HTML is poorly marked up, or the searched parts are not close to each other.
