    Project mention: Webcam very poor quality | | 2023-01-19

    Just like with digicams, it is not just about the sensor, but also the image processing itself. Should we omit the IR sensor to replace it with a better firmware-based noise-reduction system? But what about "Howdy" / "Hello" users, if we go this route?

  • dockcross

    Cross compiling toolchains in Docker images

    Project mention: Hello Wasm World! | | 2023-01-14

    We use the add_executable command to build executables with itk-wasm. The Emscripten and WASI toolchains along with itk-wasm build and execution configurations are contained in itk-wasm dockcross Docker images invoked by the itk-wasm command line interface (CLI). Note that the same code can also be built and tested with native operating system toolchains. This is useful for development and debugging.

  • aptly

    aptly - Debian repository management tool

    Project mention: Zabbix in isolated environment | | 2023-01-12

    I'm not sure if this is an option, because it might break the isolation model, but you could setup repo mirrors in whatever tool of choice you like, but for Debian/Ubuntu, I think aptly is really featureful.

  • mkchromecast

    Cast macOS and Linux Audio/Video to your Google Cast and Sonos Devices

    Project mention: Stream from Ubuntu to Chromecast or Miracast | | 2022-11-17

    I need to stream a captured video input from my Ubuntu Kinetic to a smart TV or iPad sink via Chromecast/Miracast or whatever. Can this be done without VLC (not reliable)? Mkchromecast is not working in Kinetic yet, and GNOME Network Displays only casts physical monitors.

  • git-cola

    git-cola: The highly caffeinated Git GUI

    Project mention: Git-SIM: Visually simulate Git operations in your own repos with a single termi | | 2023-01-22

    > We now have a large selection of tools that allow you to visualize what's going on (I use git-kraken), as well as google for help on doing something that isn't in muscle memory.

    Git Kraken is excellent, though Git has a page on various GUIs, many of which are free with no restrictions:

    Personally, on Windows I like SourceTree:

    Some that have worked with SVN back in the day like TortoiseGit:

    On *nix Git Cola seems to do the job for me:

    Then again, the most complex workflow I've worked with was Git Flow and I didn't need anything more advanced than that. Come to think of it, I don't really do rebases often either and mostly just take advantage of squashing commits through GitLab/Gitea and such, when needed.

    But hey, that's also valid, using Git in a way where you get version control but mostly keep the technical details out of your way (though Git LFS and certain cases with particular line endings being needed does make you drop down occasionally).
