    Rofi: A window switcher, application launcher and dmenu replacement

    As for other relatively lightweight graphical programs, it wouldn't be difficult to setup a hotkey in i3wm to generate a custom list of programs for rofi to start on remote hosts using Xpra. Arcan has some interesting ideas along these lines but going much further.

  • xpra

    Persistent remote applications for X11; screen sharing for X11, MacOS and MSWindows.

  • InfluxDB

    Build time-series-based applications quickly and at scale.. InfluxDB is the Time Series Platform where developers build real-time applications for analytics, IoT and cloud-native services. Easy to start, it is available in the cloud or on-premises.

  • i3

    A tiling window manager for X11

  • Packer

    Packer is a tool for creating identical machine images for multiple platforms from a single source configuration.

    Heh, I've been messing more with Nomad & Packer than k8s for my own stuff, I'll say guilty for Ansible though it's useful on its own and with Packer.

  • Nomad

    Nomad is an easy-to-use, flexible, and performant workload orchestrator that can deploy a mix of microservice, batch, containerized, and non-containerized applications. Nomad is easy to operate and scale and has native Consul and Vault integrations.

  • kubernetes

    Production-Grade Container Scheduling and Management

    Unfortunately my previous post's entire setup, as well as this one, is still a very manual kind of thing which would lend itself badly to orchestrating your computation over many small devices that you don't individually at least consider to some degree. And neither [Nomad](nomadproject.io/) nor K8s seems like it'd lend itself well to a low impedance distributed desktop workflow, at least as they currently are.

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.
