    Project mention: how do you get the most out of Linux? | | 2022-04-09

    If you're into this sort of thing, antigen is a package manager for zsh plugins. I really like fzf-tab (I personally only activate fzf on a double-tab, I found it got in the way a bit as the default).

    🗂️ A cross-platform C/C++ package manager based on Xmake

    Project mention: C++Now 2022: Searching for Convergence in C++ Package Management | | 2022-06-26

    I have a suggestion that almost nobody knows about. It's called "xrepo" and it's designed to go a long with "xmake" (which is an excellent build tool), but xrepo is technically seperate from xmake. Literally, way too much info to put it all here, but you (and everyone) should SERIOUSLY check it out. Xmake: Xrepo:

  • zcomet

    zcomet - Fast, Simple Zsh Plugin Manager

    Project mention: "Polus" A new theme for Bash | | 2023-01-07

    But I like the Powerlevel10k zsh theme with the Lean Style a bit more than that. I'm using it with his configurable zsh setup as my base + zcomet plugin manager. Otherwise they're pretty similar as far as general looks & use goes.

  • pacui

    Bash script providing advanced Pacman and Yay/Pikaur/Aurman/Pakku/Trizen/Pacaur/Pamac-cli functionality in a simple UI

    Project mention: Beautiful interface like `nala` | | 2023-03-04

    pacui might be the closest attempt at something like nala, but it's not that great..

  • gearlock

    Project mention: How to name an open source project? | | 2022-08-13

    I mean it is already taken by another project
