  • stf

    Control and manage Android devices from your browser. (by DeviceFarmer)

    Project mention: Android 13 virtualization lets Pixel 6 run Windows 11, Linux distributions | | 2022-02-14

    The heat isn't too hard to deal with, there are solutions (including the weird ones like water cooling cases ). Simply adding airflow tends to get you pretty far by itself, even. Device test labs are a common-enough thing and handle running phones like servers at scale without too much difficulty.

    But there's more nasty lurking problems in this area, like that phones aren't designed to be continuously powered. They will naively try to keep the battery at or near 100% charge, which will destroy it relatively quickly, and not uncommonly in the "it's bulging and increasingly likely to burst into flames" variety. 2 years is considered a "decent run" for things like device test labs as a result (see eg the FAQ on )

  • neovim-remote

    :ok_hand: Support for --remote and friends.

    Project mention: Any hope for Neovim terminal? | | 2022-05-02

    This has already been working in other forms for years, see for example which is now more or less discontinued because the respective core implementation is indeed better longterm (again - this is a difference because this implements an unopinionated extension protocol that’s now easy to deliver with the refactoring efforts, not an opinionated packaged solution). A useful and fuller experience for the special case of remote editing would be for example, they also use this API principle you wanted to see - it’s just a nvim-server that is controlled remotely and you have an editor locally that acts as your direct interface (and you take this functionality into every other embedded solution!). And all of that is not just just somewhat fiddled solution but iterated solutions of the varying states of this feature implementation (on the path to neovim 1.0).

  • p2p

    🖥️ P2P Remote Desktop - Portable, No Configuration or Installation Needed.

    Project mention: Let's advise each other on the most efficient remote PC access software. Drop your recommendations. Do not shill; provide a reason for your choice. | | 2022-03-30

    RDPwrap plus Remote Desktop P2P

  • Terminals

    Terminals is a secure, multi tab terminal services/remote desktop client. It uses Terminal Services ActiveX Client (mstscax.dll). The project started from the need of controlling multiple connections simultaneously. It is a complete replacement for the mstsc.exe (Terminal Services) client. This is official source moved from Codeplex.

    Project mention: What tool(program or cli) did you wish you knew about earlier | | 2022-02-27

    I actually prefer Terminals over the Windows iteration: Lets you do far more, ssh, vnc connections, etc all under one roof. Quite taken with Chocolatey, it's extremely powerful. I like the new Hirens Boot CD, Win10 PE loaded with a bunch of good utils.

  • tacticalrmm

    A remote monitoring & management tool, built with Django, Vue and Go.

    Project mention: Looking for a Self-hosted Patch Management tool | | 2022-05-12

    Project mention: Looking for a centralized torrent manager | | 2022-03-24

  • ipmitool

    An open-source tool for controlling IPMI-enabled systems

    Project mention: IPMI Setup | | 2021-05-19

    You mean this?

  • rustdesk-server

    RustDesk Server Program

    Project mention: One-time-fee remote access software? | | 2022-01-10

    Hi, I'm not a sysadmin or in IT. I'm just a guy with a server that I'd like to be able to control remotely on my local network. I don't want to use a server connected to the internet. Ideally I'd be able to control it from my phone, too. VNC is incredibly slow, and Rustdesk won't let me buy a license because they're going to release a new version (wtf?)

  • mcrcon

    Rcon client for Minecraft

    Project mention: I created a free and open-source RCON Client for managing Minecraft servers | | 2022-05-16

    Why would I use this over mcrcon?
