  • dstream

    Simple access to your music collection online. Self-hosted version of spotify. (by yzdbg)

    This is really cool !

    I built a self hosted Spotify alternative a while back. The idea was to be able to listed to your own music from anywhere with most of the useful features of Spotify.

  • InfluxDB

    Power Real-Time Data Analytics at Scale. Get real-time insights from all types of time series data with InfluxDB. Ingest, query, and analyze billions of data points in real-time with unbounded cardinality.

  • BlackHole

    BlackHole is a modern macOS audio loopback driver that allows applications to pass audio to other applications with zero additional latency.

    This is neat!

    One note: for loopback on macOS, instead of iShowU Audio Capture Device, one could also use BlackHole, which is open source:

    And can be installed with brew:

        brew install blackhole-2ch

  • gitmoji

    An emoji guide for your commit messages. 😜

    At a previous job we used, which scrumoji is based on. At some point I started using the ladybug emoji for bugs because it's actually a bug while my colleagues kept using the caterpillar emoji because they preferred caterpillars. I thought it was a nice way to bring some individuality into our commit messages!

  • spofi

    Spotify controls in rofi.

    As a Linux user, I've given up on alternative Spotify clients. The official client sucks... but at least it works consistently and has full feature support.

    Instead of replacing it, I've resolved to minimize my interaction with the client as much as possible via rofi[1] and media shortcuts.
