C++20 Coroutines and Io_uring
4 projects | news.ycombinator.com | 13 Nov 2022
Source code for CoReadTextFile() which is also a coroutine: https://github.com/CM4all/libcommon/blob/master/src/io/uring...
Sample code for libpq: https://github.com/CM4all/libcommon/blob/master/test/co/RunC... and c_ares https://github.com/CM4all/libcommon/blob/master/test/co/RunC... and libcurl https://github.com/CM4all/libcommon/blob/master/test/curl/Ru...
I wrote all of this for proprietary applications at dayjob, but the core library is open source, as is much of my dayjob code. The I/O event loop this integrates with is also used by several open source projects I maintain, e.g. the Music Player Daemon (https://github.com/MusicPlayerDaemon/MPD/tree/master/src/eve...) which can also take advantage of io_uring, though not (yet) with coroutines, only "classic" non-blocking I/O.
My code is optimized for low-overhead; the very core doesn't even use std::function because I fear its implicit heap allocations. Long ago, I used boost::asio (which also integrates well with coroutines) but didn't like it because it was too bloated for me.
I've rarely seen other nerds talk about C++ coroutines, and never about integrating them with io_uring, made me thinking I'm the only one. But maybe all the others just don't write/blog about it - I never did either...
Modernizing my 1980s sound system

If you want a music player that you can control from another room, you can do that by installing a very small distro such as the x86 Alpine Linux image (https://alpinelinux.org/downloads/) then the mpd daemon (https://www.musicpd.org/ - it's in standard repositories install it with "apk add mpd" from root shell) which can work headless, therefore requiring very few resources, then a suitable control app for your phone or tablet (search for mpd control app), so that you can do pretty much everything through your home WiFi from any room, basement, backyard, etc.
Should you experience noises, cracks, hum and static when connecting the netbook to an amplifier and to a mains adapter, that is a common problem of ground loops and not of that particular netbook, that will be easily solved by adding a small audio transformer in between.

A good mp3 player?
2 projects | reddit.com/r/commandline | 4 Jul 2022
I'm a big fan of cmus which runs as a foreground client but offers a remote-control interface for sending commands to that process. However, I also have respect for mpd and its family of command-line, TUI, GUI, web, etc clients given how flexible it is. I'd compare them like nano vs. vim with cmus offering a simple interface that's easy to understand and reasonable functionality; and mpd et al. being more like vim for power-users who want to do loony things with their music collections, playlists, etc.
I want to switch to Linux, specific questions

If your goal is to get off Microsoft/Apple's ecosystem you'll need to download all your music and photos from the Cloud anyway. There's easily 40+ decent music programs to choose from. I use mpd, bounce between the various clients depending on my mood and sometimes just use mpc scripts for my music, but I'm weird like that. You can set up a server accessible anywhere.
