Windows system utilities to maximize productivityProject mention: Ask HN: Does anyone use keyboard/mouse extra buttons for coding? | news.ycombinator.com | 2021-07-26
Sometimes I get frustrated with the button combinations that I have to press over and over again.
I don't do it every day, but creating a macro can help a lot in that situation.
I have a lot of Razer gear and also a few pieces of Cooler Master gear.
The real frustrations I have though involve disabling or changing buttons in deeper ways. For instance, I love the alacritty terminal, but it uses ctrl+shift+c and ctrl+shift+v to cut-and-paste. One of those buttons opens the dev tools on my browser, which I could tolerate if it didn't also scroll the browser to the top, losing my place. So disabling keys or remapping them in applications helps.
Another pet peeve is that I fat finger the "insert" button on a laptop keyboard about once per minute so it is a candidate for disabling. Tools from the likes of Razer and Cooler Master only work with their gear, even Alienware's tools only work on the extra buttons and not on your existing buttons. So you need something like
As for the mouse the value of remapping buttons is more limited IMHO since the act of pressing a button will usually cause a little bit of motion and screw up the alignment of what you were doing.

:love_letter: An extensible desktop mail app built on the modern web. Forks welcome!Project mention: Fed up with the Mac, I spent six months with a Linux laptop | news.ycombinator.com | 2021-04-02
> - Finding a mail client I don't hate on linux is tricky. I've never been able to get on with the console clients, and I actually quite like Mac Mail. Thunderbird is kinda okay.
If you're not a mailing list based developer, I would recommend Nylas Mail, which is both snappy any polished.
Windows Calculator: A simple yet powerful calculator that ships with WindowsProject mention: Not a mockup, nor feedback... a proposition. | reddit.com/r/windowsinsiders | 2021-07-17
So caret browsing doesn't mean it's webview. Even on 10 it's available for several uwp apps (mail, calculator, photo etc), you can dig through the C++ source code for the calculator app if you want to see how they implemented caret browsing. https://github.com/microsoft/calculator

📝A simple and elegant markdown editor, available for Linux, macOS and Windows.Project mention: Compare AsciiDoc and Markdown | news.ycombinator.com | 2021-07-05
Check this free markdown WYSIWYG editor https://marktext.app/. I guess it is inspired by Typora which is the first I saw. It is very impressive. Not sure about the image drag and drop. That is app specific.
I wished we had that for ASCIIDoc because it looks more powerful than the half backed Markdown.

Cross-platform asynchronous I/OProject mention: How to properly port C++ classes to C? | reddit.com/r/C_Programming | 2021-07-09
An interesting codebase to look for inspiration is libuv. Look at include/uv.h, especially anything pertinent to uv_handle_t. (It gets messy, but that's the ugly guts of a multi-platform C library that ultimately has a very nice public API.)
A markdown editor for developers on Mac, Windows and Linux.Project mention: Where is the insert date shortcut? | reddit.com/r/Boostnote | 2021-06-20

A node.js version management utility for Windows. Ironically written in Go.Project mention: windows for coding? | reddit.com/r/node | 2021-07-11
If you want to do node development on Windows, I would recommend at minimum nvm-windows, Windows Terminal and PowerShell 7+. Once you get past knowing your way around PowerShell instead of bash you should be mostly fine.
