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).

:love_letter: An extensible desktop mail app built on the modern web. Forks welcome!Project mention: Fed up with the Mac, I spent six months with a Linux laptop | news.ycombinator.com | 2021-04-02
> - 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.
Windows Calculator: A simple yet powerful calculator that ships with WindowsProject mention: Rewrite KCalc app? | reddit.com/r/kde | 2021-11-16
I would like to contribute but have no experience in this department. Check Microsoft Calculator. It have a lot of good features.
Launcher for Windows, an alternative to Alfred and Launchy.Project mention: Any features like Quick Commands in other browsers? | reddit.com/r/vivaldibrowser | 2021-08-11
Though you can get something like Wox, https://github.com/Wox-launcher/Wox - you can use that to do a lot. The default I believe to bring the Wox command line up in Windows is alt-space. You can do a lot that way.

The Markdown-based note-taking app that doesn't suck.Project mention: Typora 1.0 needs a license code to use | news.ycombinator.com | 2021-11-27
Never meta a WYSIWYG markdown editor I liked since all efforts of making it WYSIWYG impacts text editing.
For all markdown docs now I've moved to just using VS Code with a live reload UI, the best DevUX I've found is VitePress  which immediately updates on save and shows the real thing, i.e. exactly how the docs will look including rendering any custom markdown-it extensions or Vue Components embedded in the page.
One free Markdown editor I've started using is Notable  which has become a worthy replacement to Notepad for manually managing TODO notes & sporadic text files in a neat simple UI with built-in search, pin working docs and custom labels for quick organization and retrieval. It works exactly how I wanted it to as a minimal UI for editing static .md files in a directory with all metadata stored in frontmatter that displays preview mode by default and an unobtrusive text mode when editing it.
Cross-platform asynchronous I/OProject mention: Introduction to NodeJS | dev.to | 2021-11-22
Node uses Libuv as the event loop implementation. To use a Node asynchronous API, you pass a callback function as an argument to that API function, and during the event loop, your callback is executed.
A node.js version management utility for Windows. Ironically written in Go.Project mention: Installing and using Tailwind CSS 3.0 | dev.to | 2021-11-18
Access the nvm-windows repository, and on the right side, where it says Releases, click on the one that appears, which should be the last.

The Reliable USB Formatting UtilityProject mention: I just got an old laptop that hasn't been turned on for a long time, and now it won't boot without switching boot mode from UEFI to Legacy. What's wrong with it? | reddit.com/r/techsupport | 2021-11-30
The operating system installed is not installed as UEFI. You can install it as UEFI by using a tool to create USB devices from an ISO image (I recommend Rufus: https://rufus.ie) and select UEFI GPT, then booting to the USB, and installing the operating system
