PowerToys: PowerToys Run for Win+Space search.
Tesseract Open Source OCR Engine (main repository)Latest mention: How do i use matlab ocr to recognize math equations? | reddit.com/r/matlab | 2021-01-16
The code looks fine, I think for whatever reason the 'MathEquations' network just does a poor job of recognizing the equations. The support package that includes the language is based on this open-source tessaract repo which seems to struggle with math equation recognition (at least based on this issue).
SQL powered operating system instrumentation, monitoring, and analytics.
ClickHouse® is a free analytics DBMS for big dataLatest mention: Technology for storing/querying very large time series data (~1billion points per day) with ~80 columns | reddit.com/r/Database | 2021-01-14
Another solution could be to use a columnar analytical database like ClickHouse. But i dont have any experience with it.
Kodi is an award-winning free and open source home theater/media center software and entertainment hub for digital media. With its beautiful interface and powerful skinning engine, it's available for Android, BSD, Linux, macOS, iOS and Windows.Latest mention: Valve Revises Steam's December 2020 Linux Marketshare To 0.74% | reddit.com/r/linux_gaming | 2021-01-03
Linux supports modern hardware, the problem is the rest of the stack that we all rely on. Linux has had HDR support for ages now but does Xorg or any Wayland compositors support it? Nope (Xorg will probably never get support, Wayland is blocked on a colour management protocol)! The only thing that actually can use it is Kodi running on top of DRM+GBM (instead of an X11/Wayland environment the requirement for GBM probably means no Nvidia support but that's on them).
An open source re-implementation of RollerCoaster Tycoon 2 🎢Latest mention: Single Rail Coasters... Uhh... Find a way | reddit.com/r/rct | 2021-01-13
The single rail coaster was added a week ago.
Free and Open Source Reverse Engineering Platform powered by rizinLatest mention: Requesting Rcutter As It Does Not Exist | reddit.com/r/redditrequest | 2021-01-10
I am a part of a group of maintainers of a popular Reverse Engineering tool - Cutter ([website](https://cutter.re/), [Github](https://github.com/rizinorg/cutter)). Cutter is a highly popular open-source project and there are thousands of participants and followers on our communities on Twitter, Telegram, Mattermost and more.
A fast and easy-to-use status barLatest mention: Autohiding Polybar For More Screen Space | reddit.com/r/Polybar | 2021-01-19
This is documented as a note in the polybar bar settings in the wiki:
Powerful yet simple to use screenshot software :desktop_computer: :camera_flash:Latest mention: A script allowing you to refer to multiple sources at the same time. | reddit.com/r/i3wm | 2021-01-09
This is awesome. You can also try flameshot if you want other alternative.
Simple and Fast Multimedia LibraryLatest mention: Why is SDL so commonly used with C++? | reddit.com/r/cpp | 2021-01-18
Cataclysm - Dark Days Ahead. A turn-based survival game set in a post-apocalyptic world.Latest mention: CDDA ChangeLog: January 17, 2021 | reddit.com/r/cataclysmdda | 2021-01-20
Mumble is an Open Source, low-latency, high quality voice chat softwareLatest mention: Teamspeak 5 to be based on the Matrix protocol | news.ycombinator.com | 2021-01-12
Regarding Matrix+Mumble, here was my plea: https://github.com/mumble-voip/mumble/issues/1813#issuecomme...
Currently, I am envisioning posting `mumble:` links in matrix channels, maybe pinning the message, together with a bit more info in custom events.
If a Matrix client doesn't integrate mumble client functionality, you could still click on links. If it does, there could be some further integration with authentication.
Cloud Native Runtime SecurityLatest mention: 2020, the year of unexpectedness | dev.to | 2021-01-03
We also promptly updated the Falco driver version in the Falco core with pull-request 1131.
ESPHome is a system to control your ESP8266/ESP32 by simple yet powerful configuration files and control them remotely through Home Automation systems.Latest mention: Take Max Value Over Time | reddit.com/r/Esphome | 2021-01-03
I actually just wrote a lambda filter for a similar need (Trying to pull mic values from the adc). I based it off of the code for the sliding moving average filter and tweaked it as needed. I'm planning to make a PR to add this as an official filter, but in the mean time you can add this to your yaml!
GNU Radio – the Free and Open Software Radio EcosystemLatest mention: Help with gnu radio on Windows please. | reddit.com/r/RTLSDR | 2021-01-07

OSI Layer 2 driver for nRF24L01 on Arduino & Raspberry Pi/Linux DevicesLatest mention: I'm trying to use the nRF24l01 module... Need help please. | reddit.com/r/arduino | 2021-01-17
One thing that I found semi-helpful was the "printDetails()" or "prettyPrintDetails()" function. The way you call these functions is a little odd (see example at https://github.com/nRF24/RF24/blob/master/RF24.h ), but this might help you see whether your chips are even kicking.
Xbox (Original) EmulatorLatest mention: Looking to try JSRF on pc | reddit.com/r/JetSetRadio | 2021-01-03
ah, I guess they havent added it then. I recall a while back screenracer said smth about adding them, sorry about that. https://archive.org/download/JSRFJetSetRadioFuture_USA_redump_53051 theres the file if you end up using an emulator. a comment on a post about it said that it worked for them on cxbx
💻 Desktop sync client for NextcloudLatest mention: Selfhosted DropBox Features? | reddit.com/r/DataHoarder | 2021-01-13
But apparently according to the last post in this issue, using the Owncloud desktop client with a Nextcloud server allows you to have a virtual file system. I haven't tried it myself but that's pretty intriguing.
DSi Menu replacement for DS/DSi/3DS/2DSLatest mention: TWiLight Menu++ v18.3.0: Adds multiboot ROM support for native GBA mode | reddit.com/r/NDSBrew | 2021-01-19
Fast PlayStation 1 emulator for PC and AndroidLatest mention: How do I connect my Xbox One controller to PCSX-R? (Windows) | reddit.com/r/EmulationOnPC | 2021-01-16
Actually I recommend moving to Duckstation for PSX Emulation. I know it's not the answer you are looking for but it's quickly becoming the best windows PSX emulator. It even has Vulkan implementation. This is the link for the download. Here's a setup guide.
