    Project mention: How can I inspect memory usage per package in a large node application? | reddit.com/r/node | 2021-03-02

    I'm using a large node application that takes up to 250MB of memory under heavy usage. The application, theia-ide, has a pluggable architecture and is made up of a large number of packages. I would like to find out which packages are causing the most memory usage, similar to how I might use a disk usage analyzer to drill-down and see what folders are using the most space. What is the best way go about this?

  • GitHub repo desktop

    Project mention: 2021 Mar 1 Stickied 𝐇𝐄𝐋𝐏𝐃𝐄𝐒𝐊 thread - Boot problems? Display problems? Networking problems? Need ideas? Get help with these and other questions! 𝑳𝑶𝑶𝑲 𝑯𝑬𝑹𝑬 𝑭𝑰𝑹𝑺𝑻 | reddit.com/r/raspberry_pi | 2021-03-02

    For the specific software that you've asked about: vscode is already provided in the default repositories for Raspbian. The standard git client is also provided in the repositories. Github Desktop is not provided for Raspberry Pi, or for any Linux as far as I know. But it's not required to use Github. Bash is already installed and the default shell in Raspbian.

    Project mention: Ask HN: Which email app/client do you use? | news.ycombinator.com | 2021-03-02

    Mailspring (https://getmailspring.com/)

    It's the only one I can find that works across Windows/Mac/Linux that is pretty fully featured. I do pay for the Pro version but mostly to support them than for the added features.

    Project mention: How I cut GTA Online loading times by 70% | news.ycombinator.com | 2021-02-28

    Unfortunately I'm on Linux, and they don't seem to provide a Linux client. I did try out https://github.com/sindresorhus/caprine/, which worked really well, but I'm one of those weirdos who prefers websites to desktop apps.

    Project mention: Thoughts on Outline? | reddit.com/r/privacy | 2021-02-21

    It's made by Jigsaw which is an incubator in the Alphabet world; so they're relatively independent. The project on Github is still active. Because of the client-server infrastructure nature of this project (and a quick skim of the source) I'm not be too concerned that this came from a Google incubator (Jigsaw). If anything I was wondering more about the longevity of this project. I'd probably use it in a pinch but for regular use, if I had to set up my own I'd go for something more established like OpenVPN or WireGuard.

    Project mention: Is there a problem with using TSLint for the time being? | reddit.com/r/Angular2 | 2021-02-28

    Project mention: Tips on organizing files that need to live in multiple locations | reddit.com/r/datacurator | 2021-03-04

    Yup, something like TagSpaces I believe works with either in the filename or a sidecar file (some extra file that tags along next to the file in question). https://docs.tagspaces.org/tagging/
