Hey 👋 I'm Max, a software developer currently based in Europe.

I work as a developer almost 5 years, started as a PHP developer, then so-called FullStack, and now work as a #typescript dev in one company that provides cloud backup solutions.

I am also actively interested in #golang #go programming language and work on several side projects related to this great language.

My interests:

powershell, (right): -f sets DF (do not fragment) flag in IP header. this option prevents decreased speed performance and packet loss. -l, much like its linux equivalent -s, defines echo request packet length.

I.e., I bindsym pass with passmenu to a keybinding in order to pipe my credentials via the clipboard.

Those familiar with doing things on the command line.

I'm trying to use Don Melton's transcode script on an older Mac. It requires these programs:
HandBrakeCLI, ffmpeg, mkvpropedit, mp4track

Tried installing them through @homebrew but some of the dependencies to the programs fail to compile. If I can download a compiled version of the programs does that negate the need for their dependencies? Im never sure if its needed just to compile or to also run.

@devopscats that's my gripe with Ansible too. We use it "because it is cross platform". Learn a new layer of abstraction, look up their docs, instead of writing straight Bash or Python or PowerShell.

Then it's not the same Ansible across Linux and Windows anyway.

Ansible implementations can be dramatically slower than native counterparts. Eg. Try unzipping large archives with Ansible.

@progcpl @DataDrivenMD I don’t disagree with the premise. Not sure Google’s variant of translation services is totally in line with the licensing or spirit of the app.

There’s not a FOSS equivalent that I’m aware of, though perhaps the infrastructure is sufficient, with instance admins supplying an API key and forcing an appropriate disclosure?

There’s certainly no #CLI or #linux local product that can compete - please prove me wrong, incidentally, I’d love to use it if it exists!

Are there best practices for defining which default files/dirs should have ENV variables that override the default locations? Should every cache or config file have an ENV variable to change it's location? Some? Should the app/util have it's own APP_HOME or APP_CONFIG_DIR env vars? Or is supporting XDG_CACHE_HOME, XDG_DATA_HOME, and XDG_CONFIG_HOME "good enough" (tm)?

I don’t understand why people use terminal emulators with split panes and tabs and not just tmux. I only see advantages (terminal emulator-independent, survives gui-crashes, you can attach from remote, scriptable, etc).

Are there any disadvantages? #linux #cli #macos

My kingdom¹ for a terminal emulator that:

1. Works under Wayland.

1. Has split panes.

2. Conforms to GNOME’s design guidelines (is a GTK window, reacts to system colour scheme changes, etc.)

I can get WezTerm pretty close to this but its window looks entirely alien and while I’ve managed to configure it to switch themes when the colour scheme changes, it has a tendency to lose its title bar when it does. 🤦‍♂️

Arse. Looks like #MozillaVPN doesn't support command-line usage.
There is a #CLI app - but it doesn't work on headless #Linux servers.
So I either need to manually set up #WireGuard or get a refund.

The lovely @imsnif et al. have just released a new version of Zellij (a terminal workspace with split panes and much more).

The latest version brings stacked panes, auto and swap layouts, and floating panes in layouts.

(My favourite Zellij feature apart from the panes? You can open the output of the last command run in your favourite editor so you can copy/paste, etc., without using your mouse… if that’s your sort of thing.)

#zellij #terminal #multiplexer #cli #dev

Animated gif of a terminal session running Zellij. The terminal is split horizontally in half. The right-hand-side has one pane showing and seven more stacked. The animation shows each stacked pane being opened in turn with the others stacking around the open one.
