  • android_guides

    Extensive Open-Source Guides for Android Developers

    Project mention: Simple Android RecyclerView example | | 2022-09-05

    I've made a list of items a few times using Android's RecyclerView, but it is a rather complicated process. Going through one of the numerous tutorials online works (this, this, and this are good), but I am looking a bare bones example that I can copy and paste to get up and running quickly. Only the following features are necessary:

  • Standard

  • JHipster

    JHipster, much like Spring initializr, is a generator to create a boilerplate backend application, but also with an integrated front end implementation in React, Vue or Angular. In their own words, it "Is a development platform to quickly generate, develop, & deploy modern web applications & microservice architectures."

    Project mention: Micro Frontends for Java Microservices | | 2023-01-20

    exports.onExecutePostLogin = async (event, api) => { const namespace = ''; if (event.authorization) { api.idToken.setCustomClaim('preferred_username',; api.idToken.setCustomClaim(`${namespace}/roles`, event.authorization.roles); api.accessToken.setCustomClaim(`${namespace}/roles`, event.authorization.roles); } }

  • xterm.js

    A terminal for the web

    Project mention: Can I make a Terminal with pyscript? Not just printing, I want a cursor and input as well. | | 2023-01-05

    There's not currently a straightforward way to do this in PyScript, no, but there have been several experiements that use Pyodide in combination with xtermjs to recreate console behavior in the browser. I could see that functionality being encapsulated into a PyScript plugin, but nothing like that exists in the ecosystem currently, that I've seen.

  • Lombok

    Very spicy additions to the Java programming language.

  • eslint-plugin-react

    React-specific linting rules for ESLint

    Project mention: Ask HN: What are you predictions for 2023? | | 2022-12-25

    Thanks for weighing in, that's good to know. After wondering if this could be auto-refactored, I came across, will definitely have to give that (with `--fix`) a try in the new year and see if I can get the team on board! – desire for typescript being a compelling factor.

    Personally I do like the non-destructured `` throughout component code, really helps clarify at a glance where something is coming from, whether it's locally or externally defined, etc. Code style is an endless exercise in compromises/opinions though, even _with_ tools like eslint and prettier.

  • hadolint

    Dockerfile linter, validate inline bash, written in Haskell

    Project mention: Checkmake: Experimental Linter/Analyzer for Makefiles | | 2022-08-14

    Some discussion on that here:

    The hadolint project does shell checking for Dockerfiles and it uses shellcheck:

    So the approach is definitely feasible, but you do need a new project and probably it needs to be written in Haskell.

  • MailCatcher

    Catches mail and serves it through a dream.

    Project mention: New Mailcatcher docker image using Alpine 3.16.1 | | 2022-08-02
