    Project mention: Artwork display for CLI music player | /r/commandline | 2022-11-07

    I found kunst for displaying album art while playing music with mpd. Is there a CLI music player that does both (show artwork + playing music)?

  • pdwm

    full animation supported, easy configurable (uses shared library) dwm fork with a control center (pdwmc)

    Project mention: Hey everyone, I'm trying to get rid of Calamares installer. What do you think about this, would you mind if it's a TUI installer? It takes user info, asks partition names - LUKS enabled or not and only supports LVM. Is this fine, or does it look its from 1970 unix days :D | /r/linux | 2023-01-16
  • uzlib

    Radically unbloated DEFLATE/zlib/gzip compression/decompression library. Can decompress any gzip/zlib data, and offers simplified compressor which produces gzip-compatible output, while requiring much less resources (and providing less compression ratio of course).

    Project mention: Compression algorithms for HTTP packets | /r/arduino | 2023-05-23

    This GitHub repo might have something that works , according to the author, the compression ratio isn't very high

  • patches

    Collection of patches for dwm, st and dmenu (by bakkeby)

    Project mention: patch to center tiled windows on the stack | /r/suckless | 2023-08-27

    It would be possible to have gaps by default without wasting space, they would just be smaller. Current gaps patches waste even more space than 'resizehints = 0'. This patch appears to be a big challenge, but it would be very interesting to see it done. Something like the centered_size_hints patch but with better space/cpu usage would already be great.

  • phyOS-iso

    Project mention: Stuck on boot on nvidia laptop | /r/archcraft | 2023-01-29

    My custom build of dwmblocks which updates blocks asynchronously.

    Project mention: How to make dwmblocks update when i press volume key or brightness keys. | /r/dwm | 2023-06-13

    Depends. There are several dwmblocks implementations floating around. I use and it has a signal per block that can be sent with pkill to rerun the script.
