  • lsix

    Like "ls", but for images. Shows thumbnails in terminal using sixel graphics.

    I would point out that sixels[0] exist. There is a nice library, libsixel[1] for working with it, which includes bindings into many languages. If the author of sixel-tmux[2][3] is to be believed[4], the relative lack of adoption is a result of unwillingness on the part of maintainers of some popular open source terminal libraries to implement sixel support.

    I can't comment on that directly, but I will say, it's pretty damn cool to see GnuPlot generating output right into one's terminal. lsix[5] is also pretty handy as well.

    But yeah, I agree, I'm not a fan of all the work that has gone into "terminal graphics" that are based on unicode. It's a dead-end, as was clear to DEC even back in '87 (and that's setting aside that the VT220[6] had it's own drawing capabilities, though they were more limited). Maybe sixel isn't the best possible way of handling this, but it does have the benefit of 34 years of backwards-compatibility, and with the right software, you can already use it _now_.

  • Scout APM

    Less time debugging, more time building. Scout APM allows you to find and fix performance issues with no hassle. Now with error monitoring and external services monitoring, Scout is a developer's best friend when it comes to application development.

  • MojiSplit

    Split an image with multiple emojis/emotes on an even background into individual emojis/emotes

    Project mention: I wrote a script to split an image consisting of several things on an even background into several individual images, ready-made to be used as emojis and/or emotes (details and GitHub link in comment) | | 2021-07-01

    I think adding links to the source code at least some cases might be a godo idea, though, so I added it as an issue to the GitHub repository, to make sure I don't forget to come back to it once I have the time and space to do so :D
