    Project mention: #gitPanic - Tools | | 2022-11-29

    Before I added a script to print out my current git branch after the directory in my terminal, my most commonly used git command was git branch. Terminal programs like Hyper will have features like this preconfigured. If you're just using Zsh or Bash, here's a script you can add to your terminal profile file:

    Project mention: I want to get back in contact with some old friends but I don’t know how? | | 2022-11-29

    GitHub repo

  • marktext

    📝A simple and elegant markdown editor, available for Linux, macOS and Windows.

    Project mention: Writing down what I do – in Obsidian | | 2022-11-08

    I have used syncthing + marktext[0] and or ghostwriter[1] depending on the content of my notes. For a daily journal I like to use ghostwriter as it has almost no distraction and it forces me to focus. It just got shifted over to being maintained by the KDE team and I really enjoy it.

    I liked marktext over joplin for similar reasons. But I am probably a little overzealous in my search for distraction free note taking. I assume joplin provides more feature sets, I just happened to want less features for what I do on a day to day.

    Project mention: How to convert gradle project to ant project? | | 2022-11-03

    assuming you use that ( as your starting point. You first have to ask what it is that your build should cover. Do you need all the spotless checks and release flags and so on or do you just need to package everything up so that it could run.

  • notable

    The Markdown-based note-taking app that doesn't suck.

    Project mention: What makes people hate electron ? | | 2022-10-23

    There's exactly one non-webapp Electron-based application that I like and use semi-regularly -- Notable, because it has a skilled developer behind it, enough feature improvement to lure me away from KeepNote, and uses standard markdown files, so there's no lock-in to worry about. Every other Electron-based desktop app I've tried has been a fast uninstall.

  • cool-retro-term

    A good looking terminal emulator which mimics the old cathode display...

    Project mention: What's a good Linux terminal emulator that doesn't try to reinvent TMUX? | | 2022-11-26

    In some sense it's not a good terminal emulato (I hit several glitches in it on macOS, though it seems to do better on my NixOS machine), but I'm in love with cool-retro-term for its gorgeous CRT-style visuals.

    I mention it because it doesn't have tabs, saved sessions, or any of the other features tmux handles.

    So, it's not a bad fit for heavy tmux users.
