  • GitHub repo TextSecure

    A private messenger for Android.

  • GitHub repo HomeMirror

    Android application powering the mirror in my house

  • GitHub repo revery

    :zap: Native, high-performance, cross-platform desktop apps - built with Reason!

    Project mention: Easiest lib to use for gui | reddit.com/r/ocaml | 2021-03-28

    Revery is promising and its way of handling GUIs matches the current trend of using a React-like virtual DOM style. Unfortunately, I found it to be a pain in the ass to actually attempt to install and use because of dependency on esy (which in turn depends on npm and caused nothing bug headaches) though so I haven't been able to actually try using it for anything.

  • GitHub repo caprine

    Elegant Facebook Messenger desktop app

    Project mention: How I cut GTA Online loading times by 70% | news.ycombinator.com | 2021-02-28

    Unfortunately I'm on Linux, and they don't seem to provide a Linux client. I did try out https://github.com/sindresorhus/caprine/, which worked really well, but I'm one of those weirdos who prefers websites to desktop apps.

    Project mention: I use arch btw | reddit.com/r/ProgrammerHumor | 2021-04-17
  • GitHub repo MvRx

    Mavericks: Android on Autopilot

    Project mention: What is wrong with MVVM? | reddit.com/r/androiddev | 2021-04-14

    Everything in MVI is just more code that does nothing (see how most MVI frameworks are basically just a wrapper over state.value = state.copy() like in Orbit or MvRx which you wouldn't even need if you used combiners) and instead adds unnecessary constraints over MVVM that don't help you at all. The "sealed class inputs" are basically a reinvention of calling interface functions except you create classes for it, despite there being no asynchronicity when you have a View -> ViewModel communication.

  • GitHub repo uhabits

    Project mention: Where do you get started learning about encryption if one were trying to make an encrypted messaging app? | reddit.com/r/iOSProgramming | 2021-03-04
