    Generate rEFInd manual boot stanzas from Btrfs snapshots

    Snapper creates read-only snapshots, by default (AFAIK). I'm not sure whether this behavior is configurable. Timeshift, on the other hand, creates writable snapshots. I'm using refind-btrfs which creates writable snapshots from read-only snapshots, automatically.

  • grub-btrfs

    Include btrfs snapshots at boot options. (Grub menu)

    Snapper creates read-only snapshots. If you are using grub-btrfs, a workaround has been made by adding grub-btrfs-overlayfs to the end of HOOKS in /etc/mkinitcpio.conf. When I installed grub-btrfs via pacman I didn't have to add the additional files to /etc/initcpio as mentioned in the README on GitHub.

  • Scout APM

    Less time debugging, more time building. Scout APM allows you to find and fix performance issues with no hassle. Now with error monitoring and external services monitoring, Scout is a developer's best friend when it comes to application development.
