Re: Cool Random Internet Stuff

https://gmic.eu/

G'MIC is a full-featured open-source framework for image processing, distributed under the CeCILL free software licenses (LGPL-like and/or GPL-compatible). It provides several different user interfaces to convert / manipulate / filter / visualize generic image datasets, ranging from 1d scalar signals to 3d+t sequences of multi-spectral volumetric images, hence including 2d color images.

These kinds of tools are so good...

Re: Cool Random Internet Stuff

appleseed

appleseed is an open source, physically-based global illumination rendering engine primarily designed for animation and visual effects.

There is a Blender plugin as well smile

It offers several physically-based (measured) shaders for metal, plastic & glass, a progressive photon mapping integrator and full spectral rendering (31 bands from 400-700 nm).

No Metropolis Light Transport or bidirectional path tracing though, which is a shame.

Re: Cool Random Internet Stuff

I don't know if this should go here or in Terminator vs urxvt vs others (1 mor time), but I have stumbled upon yet another terminal called kitty.

It seems to be a simple terminal application, but has a functionality of both screen/tmux and terminator-like multitab features. In other words, it seems to be fully able to replace 'some-terminal-with-tabs'+tmux/screen workflow, with single application. And (configurable) predefined sensible keyboard shortcuts. For example:

# create (named) tabs
New tab        ctrl+shift+t
Close tab       ctrl+shift+q
Next tab        ctrl+shift+right
Previous tab  ctrl+shift+left
...

and

# create windows in a single tab (various layout possible)
New window        ctrl+shift+enter
Close window       ctrl+shift+w
Next window        ctrl+shift+]
Previous window  ctrl+shift+[
...

Here are some more:

Increase font size       ctrl+shift+equal
Decrease font size      ctrl+shift+minus
Restore font size        ctrl+shift+backspace
Edit kitty config file   ctrl+shift+f2
...

And it has 'Ctrl-Shift-C' and 'Ctrl-Shift-V' as a copy and paste, respectively.

As one can see, it is heavily keyboard oriented.

Also, benchmarks by program author says that it is almost the fastes terminal emulator ...

Unfortunately, it is available only in buster (and sid), but it may be worth watching for it, once BL goes Lithium ...

I think, I will slowly replace my urxvt+tmux workflow with the kitty terminal ... will let you know if I stumble on something 'not so nice'.

Re: Cool Random Internet Stuff

^Quite, xterm probably has the smallest memory footprint. Nevertheless, this kitty, despite its name, seems nice. Of course, it depends on workflow one needs ...

BTW, ps_mem, is this the python script? Or something else?

EDIT:
Hm ... :

ps_mem:
 10.6 MiB +   4.2 MiB =  14.8 MiB	urxvt (4)
 35.4 MiB +   9.7 MiB =  45.2 MiB	kitty

Not particularly suitable for low mem setups ...

Re: Cool Random Internet Stuff

^^ great! i can nuke 25GB/month into the cloud for free!
no need to open a cumpersome (sic) terminal anymore and actually type something like rm -rf *. effing typos, the cloud takes crae of it.

PS: don't forget to nuke those backups as well!

Re: Cool Random Internet Stuff

Ok I think this is neat-o.

The .bashrc generator. Since I'm not that good at memorizing all these switches and whatnot in linux scripting if found it very easy to customize my bash prompt.

http://bashrcgenerator.com/

So now it's set to:

export PS1="\A \d - \w \n[\u]\\$\[$(tput sgr0)\]"

Which looks like so:

23:44 Fri Jun 01 - ~/Downloads
[temetka]$

where ~/Downloads changes to what ever you cd into. So if you go to /usr/local/bin for example, it will look like this:

23:45 Fri Jun 01 - /usr/local/bin
[temetka]$

I like knowing at a glance what directory I'm in when I'm in the terminal and having the clock is handy, and why not?

Anyway, I just thought I'd share that with you all. smile

Re: Cool Random Internet Stuff

^Haha ... entertaining

... you should find a friend who works on compilers and ask if he or she has ever looked inside gcc (GNU C compiler), and, after the crying stops and you've bucked your friend up with more alcohol, ask if he or she has ever tried to extend the compiler. If you are still friends at that point, your final question should be about submitting patches upstream into this supposedly open-source project.

Re: Cool Random Internet Stuff

^The author missed part of the story: 1980 they got a new printer, a Xerox 9700 at the AI Lab and Stallman wanted to have the source code to hack it for sending messages when the printing was done or it was jammed (as users were on different floors). It worked with the printer before, but Xerox denied to deliver the source code and those features did not work with the new printer. This made Stallman focus on free software and he even quit his job to work for GNU. It started almost ten years before Linus began his kernel work. Anyway, it's a simple math as the kernel alone is far away from a working system, which is luckily recognized by the sane people at Debian, using GNU/Linux in the official handbook. Apart from the GNU tools I think it was even more important to establish the philosophy behind GNU and the FSF.

Anyhow Linux - or better to say GNU/Linux - is beautiful: https://www.fossmint.com/best-linux-icon-themes/

There is also a new icon theme in development called suru.
