  • GitHub repo redux

    Predictable state container for JavaScript apps

    Project mention: Introducing MiniRx - Scalable reactive state management | dev.to | 2021-02-26

    I like to describe MiniRx as the little brother of NgRx. NgRx and MiniRx have the same parents (RxJS and Redux), but they both have their own character and abilities.

    Project mention: use case for Java Streams... | reddit.com/r/java | 2021-02-05

    See this: https://github.com/google/guava/wiki/FunctionalExplained#caveats , in this case it applies to java too

    Project mention: Did you also know? In Xcode you can use the refactoring tool to wrap a literal string into a call to NSLocalizedString! Even better, you can assign a keyboard shortcut to make it even more efficient 🤓 | reddit.com/r/swift | 2020-12-23

    Same was posted on the /r/iOSProgramming post for this, but I'm definitely not going back to using the raw NSLocalizedString call or extensions after I started using R.swift. Type safety and auto complete for all your assets is a real win in my book.

  • GitHub repo qrcp

    :zap: Transfer files over wifi from your computer to your mobile device by scanning a QR code without leaving the terminal.

    Project mention: Is there an opensource way to transfer files over local WiFi from PC to Android? | reddit.com/r/fossdroid | 2021-01-13

  • GitHub repo Gephi

    Gephi - The Open Graph Viz Platform

    Project mention: trying to setup gephi on fedora 33 and having this error | reddit.com/r/linuxquestions | 2021-02-24

    Set jdkhome in your etc/gephi.conf like: jdkhome="/usr/lib/jvm/jre-1.8.0-openjdk" then it should start just fine. If it gets stuck at "Initializing" the graph follow the instructions from https://github.com/gephi/gephi/issues/2189 - so either use LIBGL_ALWAYS_SOFTWARE=1 bin/gephi or MESA_LOADER_DRIVER_OVERRIDE=i965 bin/gephi - second worked for me on F33.
