  • Sonar - Write Clean Python Code. Always.
  • InfluxDB - Access the most powerful time series database as a service
  • SaaSHub - Software Alternatives and Reviews
  • Poricom

    Optical character recognition in manga images. Manga OCR desktop application

    Poricom is probably what you could be happy with. Download the program, launch it, and when asked whether to import the "manga-ocr model", say yes. It will download it for the first time, and whenever you start the program, you'll have to click "yes" again so it uses that model.

  • manga-ocr

    Optical character recognition for Japanese text, with the main focus being Japanese manga

    Check out manga-ocr for probably the best OCR right now, or Poricom for a version with a user interface, if command line isn't your thing.

  • Sonar

    Write Clean Python Code. Always.. Sonar helps you commit clean code every time. With over 225 unique rules to find Python bugs, code smells & vulnerabilities, Sonar finds the issues while you focus on the work.

  • mokuro

    Read Japanese manga inside browser with selectable text.

    Alternatively, mokuro is a tool running on manga-ocr that converts manga text into text you can scan with a pop-up dictionary like Yomichan. Thanks to Yomichan and Anki's AnkiConnect plugin, this also allows you to create one-click Anki flashcards from Manga.
