    Which App do you use? DDC/CI works differently on the M1 chips and only through a private API which is why most control apps are broken. Monitor Control has been adapted and works fine on M1. https://github.com/MonitorControl/MonitorControl

    Project mention: What’s your must have Extensions? | reddit.com/r/iOSProgramming | 2021-11-12
  • GitHub repo Amethyst

    Automatic tiling window manager for macOS à la xmonad.

    Project mention: Switching from macOS to Pop _OS | news.ycombinator.com | 2022-01-15

    Distro does not matter as much too me like Desktop Environment or Window Manager. I tried many distributions, in the end, I got back Fedora but then to Ubuntu (mostly because of the ZFS on Root thing and everything works out of the box experience). Artix was pretty good, but KDE and krohnkite was "too customizable" for me and dwm to less desktop environment.

    BTW: If someone would like to have a tiling window manager on MacOS, try Amethyst[1]. Pretty awesome ;)

    Project mention: I spent the xmas break learning how to make my own plugins | reddit.com/r/WeAreTheMusicMakers | 2021-12-30

    It seems to be the industry standard at least. I have played around with iPlug2 and AudioKit a little bit but not enough to really form an opinion. (iPlug2 is described by the authors as "not production ready" and AudioKit is mac / ios only)

  • GitHub repo gitignore.io

    Create useful .gitignore files for your project

    Project mention: Sorry everybody, I failed with you | news.ycombinator.com | 2021-06-07

    Looking at https://gitignore.io - there is plenty of empty space and nothing, even subtle and small like "I would appreciate donations" with link/button.

    I also see nothing in https://github.com/toptal/gitignore.io and GitHub sponsoring seems to be not enabled.

    (just mentioning in case you would make it more clear that you would be happy about donations)

  • GitHub repo Gifski

    🌈 Convert videos to high-quality GIFs on your Mac

    Project mention: What are you fine folks using for screen recording? | reddit.com/r/macapps | 2021-06-06

    I love the simplicity, the developer, its ability to share my files with external services quickly via plugins (I routinely share my recordings with his other app Gifski[3]), the fact that it's open-source, and the fact that it's free. IMO it's well worth checking out.

  • GitHub repo Clipy

    Clipboard extension app for macOS.

    Project mention: Clipboard manager with folders? | reddit.com/r/macapps | 2022-01-15
