  • tmux

    tmux source code

    There was also a huge amount of flak because systemd started raising bug reports (e.g. tmux github issue and Hacker News discussion) saying that because systemd changed to a completely unreasonable default, everybody else should now update to the blessed and systemd-approved method for having persistent processes.

  • eudev

    Repository for eudev development

    Last release was 6 months ago: https://github.com/eudev-project/eudev

  • The AUR just makes it easy to manage software outside of the arch repos. Like for instance I need libinput-config because my trackpad scroll speed is way too fast by default with libinout and gnome currently doesn't have a way to configure trackpad scroll speed so I use it to slow it down with this. Using yay and libinput-config-git to compile and install libinput-config is much faster than doing it manually and it makes it easier to remove as well. Sure I need to read the pkgbuild but most pkgbuild files are easy and digestible to read and understand.

  • yay

    Yet another Yogurt - An AUR Helper written in Go

    I would contest that you have no idea about the depth of AUR, and by extension how horrid median pkgbuild quality. Besides, pkgbuilds in AUR are mostly written by random people who are neither affiliated with upstream project nor Arch itself. This is no better than Windows users downloading and running random exe from internet, which you probably frown upon. I don't get why we promote a platform that lets users run scripts that has had zero quality control, and has unfettered access to user's host system (yay doesn't even appear to build things in a clean chroot).

  • systemd

    The systemd System and Service Manager

    I apologize if english isn't your first language but you keep making an argument against a point I didn't make. systemd-resolved is a systemd component. It's part of the systemd source repository. It's developed by the same people, it's packaged together in most distributions (hint: dpkg -S `which systemd-resolve`)

  • sysz

    An fzf terminal UI for systemctl

    sysz can be a useful tool for the inexperienced. It's a very simple TUI for system to and can open the journal for a unit. Check it out!

  • freebsd-ports

    FreeBSD ports tree (read-only mirror)

    Gentoo and FreeBSD handle it in their "ports" tree, making it quite obvious what is required on source based package systems.

  • 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.
