  • FSS

    I have gone through many small projects such as a P2P "airdrop-like" file sharing between PCs, a simple filehosting service with access management (in pair with my friend), GTK GUI for Ventoy.org before there was an official one, AI-powered webcam filter for linux allowing to shift viewframe of the camera to always center on your face, an Ubuntu remix with flatpaks instead of snaps (over 100 upvotes on r/linux, lol), and a number of not very linux related open hardware projects: a raspberry PI Compute Module 4 carrier board, a tiny implementation of raspberry pi foundation's micro-controller rp2040, as well as a 80% keyboard (which turned out to be kinda bad tbh)

  • jpizza

    Java branch of DeveloPizza

    Not my project, just one I'm a major collaborator to. JPizza is a programming language.

  • Zoneminder

    ZoneMinder is a free, open source Closed-circuit television software application developed for Linux which supports IP, USB and Analog cameras.

    Zoneminder - open source NVR system with an event server to use machine learning models to detect objects.

  • corectrl

  • spdlog

    Fast C++ logging library.

    spdlog, a pretty useful and more and more commonly used logging library for C++.\ SixtyFPS, an emerging GUI library for Rust, but you can use it in multiple languages. It uses OpenGL or Qt currently as backend (well, it's a new library and they wanted two from the get-go to make sure their abstractions are done right/well enough). They started a company this year for it too.

  • sixtyfps

    Slint is a toolkit to efficiently develop fluid graphical user interfaces for any display: embedded devices and desktop applications. We support multiple programming languages, such as Rust, C++ or JavaScript. [Moved to: https://github.com/slint-ui/slint]

  • Snebu

    Simple Network Encrypting Backup Utility

    Snebu, on github. Simple Network Encrypting Backup Utility.

  • gne

    Tar Genie -- A tar program with public key encryption extensions

    Also, a spinoff project (based on the encryption plugin used by Snebu) that I just started, is gne (tar genie), which is a tar implementation that supports public key encryption, along with some other advanced features.

  • Scout APM

    Truly a developer’s best friend. Scout APM is great for developers who want to find and fix performance issues in their applications. With Scout, we'll take care of the bugs so you can focus on building great things 🚀.
