Stuff that I have found interesting over a few weeks of avoiding work.
Immortal Objects in the nw CPython
Small things can make a huge difference to performance.
C++ Serialization has always been a complete disaster for me. Maybe this will finally fill the void?
Interesting way to package Python apps as an application
A better interface to the Unreal Market place… again, not that hard to do!
Asset Manager Studio
A better asset manage than unreal launcher… not that that is hard.
React module for building dash boards
Always find these kinds of things super interesting and useful.
Comparison of Python Logging Modules
Plane - an open source alternative to Jira
STX Error Handling Library for C++
A standard way to handle errors across your project makes life much safer.
Freestanding and Hosted C++
I did not know these were defined. Interesting distinctions for embedded programmers
FreeBSD on Firecracker
Very interesting work on getting the FreeBSD kernel to boot more quickly.
A virtual 3D capable GPU for QEMU. This could prove really useful for testing 3D games. Nice. Actually it seems like it’s a passthrough so it’s back to LLVMPipe for testing via CI :( Still an interesting project though.
Movement on the Python GIL
Let’s hope so, actually I never really worry about Python’s speed but I am sure some people do.
Really interesting interface to SQLite and the data hidden within. Very powerful tool. In fact it has a set of tools that it is built upon that look like gems.
Hackable Radio Telescope
Now this looks like a lot of fun!
Some lovely people are seeking to recreate the Nintendo 3DS and WiiU network services. Great idea.
Preface to animal farm, lost and then found
Wondering about an alternative information future we could have lived.
Windown 95 Themed XFCE / Xubuntu
The only time I’ve ever had a workable Unix desktop that wasn’t Motif was fvwm95
Wine front end for FreeBSD, looks interesting to me.
Email Marketing platform
Some innovation in this space is really needed tbh.
