  • Strongbox

    A KeePass/Password Safe Client for iOS and OS X

  • I’ve been a very happy user of Strongbox for many years. If I’m not in the mac/iOS space, I still have to use another Keepass client

  • zsh-autosuggestions

    Fish-like autosuggestions for zsh

  • I'm using the zsh-autosuggestion plugin (so not a feature of the terminal but of the shell):

  • iterm2

  • Totally.

    There are clear explanations in the release notes and the wiki entry linked from the relevant place in the preference pane [1]. The full release note is displayed before updating. There are numerous comments explaining how it's impossible to accidentally enable the feature. It's opt-in, you have to input an paid API key, you can even use a offline modal instead, and the data it sends are totally customizable and by default limited to the output of "uname" and the prompt you explicitly enter.

    Yet people ignore all of that

    iTerm2 is featureful yet solid, constantly improved, doesn't work against the user, and is free. I've submitted patches before and the author was nice and responsive. The AI feature is minimal, non-intrusive, and doesn't advertise its existence once you decided not to opt in. It's thankless work even without HN piling on and the author deserves much better.


  • inshellisense

    IDE style command line auto complete

  • Me too! It's alright, but as I said I really would like it to be IDE-style, with multiple suggestions in a box that I can see all at once and flip through.

    There is this:

    But it doesn't look really "seamless" to me yet, though admittedly I did not give it a proper try.

  • Sparkle

    A software update framework for macOS

  • You should have. iTerm2 uses Sparkle update and it shows release notes. It was there.

    There's a screenshot of how it should look like in Sparkle's project page.

    Can you care to explain what's so "sneaky" about it? What did the iTerm2 dev do to you?

  • iTerm2

    iTerm2 is a terminal emulator for Mac OS X that does amazing things.

  • Have you used iTerm2? Saw the amount of work that's put into it? Checked how long it has been maintained by basically one person for more than a decade? The iTerm2 developer is a person you can actually trust.

    But all of a sudden you now have people up in arms about how a spyware of a feature was sneakily forced upon them, and be righteous about it. This is sad.

NOTE: The number of mentions on this list indicates mentions on common posts plus user suggested alternatives. Hence, a higher number means a more popular project.
