  • GitHub repo Notepads

    A modern, lightweight text editor with a minimalist design.

    Project mention: (Tuesday Talks) What do you use? | reddit.com/r/GWABackstage | 2021-01-27

    There's also Notepads which looks prettier than Notepad++, but has some minor analytics built-in, but is not tracking any "user privacy related info" and is not "sending any of your typing or files over" to the developer and since the software is open source that can be verified by anyone. Since it's a Microsoft Store app it will have some basic diagnostic info sent to Microsoft, but that can supposedly be disabled in the global Windows settings.

    Project mention: Mavericks (previously know as MvRx) now supports Jetpack Compose | reddit.com/r/androiddev | 2021-03-01
  • GitHub repo uhabits

    Project mention: GitHub discussions further gamify the platform | news.ycombinator.com | 2021-01-31

    discussions gamify github like contribution graph. there are no counts for discussions like issues/prs so authors can hide issues by moving them.

    see for example: https://github.com/isoron/uhabits

    anything that isnt specific a crash is moved to discussions so it can be ignore. anyone see similar in other repos?

    doing this keeps issues low by hiding them so stars etc can be high. then author says they have only a few issues open for the project, and users see the same so think its probably good
