  • noTunes

    A simple macOS application that will prevent iTunes or Apple Music from launching.

    I agree with you. Apple Music is particularly annoying. I recommend this free little utility: https://github.com/tombonez/noTunes

  • Rectangle

    Move and resize windows on macOS with keyboard shortcuts and snap areas

    Not having to install apps like Rectangle to snap windows into desired areas.

  • osxfuse

    FUSE extends macOS by adding support for user space file systems

  • nix-installer

    Install Nix and flakes with the fast and reliable Determinate Nix Installer, with over 2 million installs.

    The Determinate Systems nix installer is quite smooth: https://github.com/DeterminateSystems/nix-installer/

    Though it does tend to get clobbered on macOS updates.

  • leopard.sh

    Package managers for PowerPC Macs running OS X Leopard (10.5) and Tiger (10.4), written in Bash 😱

    Indeed!

    I’ve also dabbled in this area http://leopard.sh/

  • nix

    Nix, the purely functional package manager

    Yeah, that's a long-running and pretty much unfixable issue as macOS updates overwrite /etc/zshrc. AFAIK, the determinate systems installer does somewhat resolve this as you can just run it again and it will fix the issue.

    The default installer is not idempotent yet (and my work on trying to resolve that has stalled, unfortunately, see https://github.com/NixOS/nix/pull/7603), so trying to run it again to fix this issue will result in errors.

  • Opencore-Legacy-Patcher

    Discontinued [Moved to: https://github.com/dortania/OpenCore-Legacy-Patcher]

    Have you explored https://github.com/dortania/OpenCore-Legacy-Patcher?

    I have used it before and, in my experience and everyone else I know who has used it, the vast majority of time the newer versions run absolutely fine with no issues. Occasionally some newer features don't work, but I'd but confident that 2015/2017 iMacs would be able to run the latest version no problem.
