Now we have become very big, Different from the original idea. Collect premium software in various categories.Project mention: Let's make a collection of useful software and tips for those new to macOS! | reddit.com/r/mac | 2021-10-28
Yes there are some general tools that make almost every mac experience better, but the software I use and love (and recommend) the most only fits people with a similar workflow. There is however a whole github repository dedicated to collecting good software for mac, sorted into categories with a short description. Many problems I have with my computer aren’t unique, very ofter there’s a tool to fix it, I just don’t know the name. This has helped a lot
A terminal built on web technologiesProject mention: Can someone please explain what a bash and shell are? | reddit.com/r/learnprogramming | 2021-11-29
Zsh is actually the default shell in MacOS now, for what its worth. Iterm2 has features regarding session management via profiles, tabs for multiple sessions, etc. The default terminal in MacOS is just fine, but if you find yourself using the terminal every day, iTerm2 is definitely a step up. There are other Terminals though such as Hyper: https://hyper.is/ which has the hilarious and amazing HyperPower plugin: https://hyper.is/store/hyperpower.

🍺 The missing package manager for macOS (or Linux)Project mention: Demotivated after failing a coding test | reddit.com/r/Python | 2021-11-30
Depending on the position your applying for, you need very different skills. HomeBrew surely took lots of effort to create but the software-engineering side is pretty "boring". Considerations around maintainability, ease-of-use, scalability, etc. OTOH are a big thing which show important, but very different skills.
Next Generation of ShadowsocksXProject mention: I need to create an exception to a website... | reddit.com/r/shadowsocks | 2021-03-31
Customize your rules for PAC with a similar client. I can provide you an access too :)
Make any web page a desktop applicationProject mention: Thanks Microsoft | reddit.com/r/ProgrammerHumor | 2021-11-20
I believe you can trick Microsoft into thinking that you're using the web version instead of the app with the use of something like nativefier (https://github.com/nativefier/nativefier). (Use your browsers user agent instead of electron).

> - 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.
Asynchronous image downloader with cache support as a UIImageView categoryProject mention: How can I get the image from a URL and make it UIImage? | reddit.com/r/swift | 2021-10-19
Urlsession is the native approach, but there are also libraries that asynchronously download and show the images like SDWebImage or Kingfisher
