Also getting thread folding working in Anarki.
Also a HN client in Godot/C#.
Why no, I'm probably not actually ever going to finish anything, thank you for noticing.
I made it so I could use it in my own extensions. Definitely lowers the barrier to making profitable side-project extensions. Open-source library is here: https://github.com/glench/ExtPay
To compare to other services: the Chrome Web Store fee was 5%, Gumroad's fee is 5% + the Stripe fee, and my main competitor is charging 6.5% + stripe fee. Pretty standard. Why do you feel it's extremely high?
And if you think about the value of ExtensionPay... it saves people at least $5 / month on server costs, plus the time/ energy/hassle of creating their own payment system (which involves creating a user management, integrating it securely with the extension itself, figuring out how to integrate with a payment processor, setting up a database, sending emails, managing a server etc etc). Plus a lot of my customers are indie developers with limited resources that just want to focus on their extension.
I had about ~30 domain names which were not doing anything. I got tired of them. But I didn't want to spend time working on them.
So I built Newsy, which converts your domain name into a fully functional & automated content site. It finds niche contents and display them like Reddit.
Over the months, I've built membership, newsletters, comments, social sharing, widgets, RSS, API and even sending email using your domain name via GMail.
Finally, I've started to letting these domain names to monetize via adding your own ads.
Got any un-used domain names? Would love to hear your feedback!
A non-profit open source platform to facilitate loan-free education to help life-long learning, as well as increase income of teaching and non-teaching staff of education institutions.
Edit: Any feedback, suggestion will help improve the project. Also, if you want to collaborate or want to know more about the project, then please email me. My email is in my profile.
Thank you very much!
> I wonder if you could try some pilot programs with places like https://www.recurse.com/ or other alternative educational institutions.
Yeah, that would really be helpful. Would you like to join the project and/or mentor me? You have fantastic profile and lot of experience in the education domain. You joining the project and/or mentoring me will make a huge difference to the project.
I did consider just using compression library, but decided against it partly because it would be more interesting to write it myself, but also having a quick look I couldn't find one that could do decompression without needing additional temporary storage. It's not that fancy, just LZW with a multi-stage compression to optimize the dictionary.
Because of how many of the inputs work, you can often handle it in smaller chunks (e.g. one line at a time, I called them records), so the inputs have a small amount of pre-processing on my PC to split them up into smaller chunks so the entire input doesn't need to be held in RAM at once.
Of course, not all input data will compress well, some will even "compress" to a larger size, so I've also abstracted over the data storage so that it can handle reading records from compressed or uncompressed inputs.
I've done 4 days so far, and none of the inputs have compressed. Total runtime is 3.24 seconds (that day 4...).
Current state can be found here for the morbidly curious: https://github.com/Measter/AdventOfCode2019 Spoilers are in the mcu/src/challenges folder.
I'm building a virtual tabletop for tabletop roleplayers that play narrative driven games and theater of the mind style games.
I'm using text parsing to accomplish different tools for storytelling and improvisation. Believe that is the quickest way for a GM to produce content and rig their games.
The tech stack is Svelte and Sapper with MDSVEX and Pouch/CouchDb/Websockets. The database part has been the hardest so far and haven't gotten that far. Got some decent character sheets out there but just using local storage for now. Got working slide decks, rollable tables and interactive fiction in dev but knitting it all together is a big job. My goal is to run my first game session with friends in May and open it for alpha June/July.

I personally used this to improve my German vocabulary. This way one can learn new words from materials they naturally enjoy (vs boring text books).
The extension is available for Chrome: https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/vocabboost/obgbcam...? Firefox: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/vocabboost/
There is also a video example here: http://vocabboost.online/.
Like Google trend but based on content people write.
Sometimes our friend doesn't drink alcohol, so we go through and scrub all the breweries and wineries. Sometimes they're gluten free, so all of the pizza and bagels we love get cut. After doing this several times, we realized it would be cool to have an app to do this. So that is my side project!
It will be part Canva, part Facebook Recommendations, maybe part knowledge-base? Filterable lists, creation of itineraries, notes about each Place. Export to a static site with a link you can share. It is already integrated with Google Maps and Places APIs, so it's pretty easy to get up and running.
The neat thing is, as I mentioned above, it has filters. So you can tag places with "winery" or "vegetarian" or something, and when you're crafting your collection of places for your friends, you can filter on those tags really easily. You could just click the "winery" tag to instantly create a "Virginia Wine Guide".
I'm not totally sure it has broad appeal, but I'm hoping a few travel bloggers might get some use out of it. V3 will probably have some sort of "export to CMS" feature.
Its backend, Exocore (https://github.com/appaquet/exocore), is built on top of a personal / private blockchain and is made from the ground up to be hosted in a semi-decentralized fashion on your own personal devices (your computer, raspberry pi, a cloud instance, etc.). It is written in Rust and has iOS, C and Web (WASM) clients.
It has very rough edges, but I'm using it daily to organize my life. It has also been my learning playground to improve my Rust skills over the last two years. If all goes well, I'm a few months away from some kind of tech preview.
My goal is to learn SwiftUI and explore new technologies.
The app is now open source on GitHub as well, it's my way to give back to the community as I was learning it.

I am still struggling to accomplish my goal of becoming sustainable by focusing on the self-hosted part instead of the SaaS part, but I'm not giving up. I do think that self-hosting is the future! :)
I think most of the unique points are mentioned on the landing page in the "What's different about userTrack?" section.
The main gist is that userTrack is primary self-hosted, so the product's goal is aligned with the customer's goal. A platform like Matomo for example, earns money by providing a cloud solution, which means that anyone who chooses to self-host instead of using their service will reduce their revenue. This also leads to them making it harder to install and maintain the self-hosted version and they also provide some features only for the cloud plan (session recordings, heatmaps). Most of the other open-source analytics platforms that you might be referring to are pretty simple and usually only provide basic visitor stats.
tl;dr: ease of installation, automatic updates, human support, highly performant/well optimized, unique interface and features, very affordable compared to alternatives with similar features, bootstrapped.
Apart from this I am also trying to promote self-hosting as much as possible, thus I am continuously looking for and promoting different ways to reduce 3rd party dependencies and making it easier to do so.
Cleave is an application that lets users persist OS state as a "context" - saving and loading open applications, their windows (and their positions), tabs, open files/documents and so on. Think of it as a workspace or project manager from an IDE, but on the OS-level.
Started because of frequent multitasking of heavy work with limited resources. Made it because I wanted to switch between studying, working, reading, looking for an apartment, etc. without manually managing all states or consuming all resources.
I'll release an Open Beta (macOS) as soon as I finish license verification and delta updates, but I keep getting sidetracked...
I've built a few open source apps and few other little projects to help automate my workflow.
There are only a handful of providers of modelling software, most are commercial and one recently sold to Autodesk for $1B.
Not sure I'll convince the industry to change but I'm enjoying tinkering around and making my own small difference.
The easiest way to build simple, powerful websites with nothing but Notion.
My secondary project is https://golang-labs.com. With this one, I'm exploring whether there is a need for an enterprise focused module proxy for Golang. The issues I see with the public proxy are: build repeatability, license compatibility, and information security. Please reach out if this is something you care about.
Mostly using AWS Lambda and SNS.
Some occasional weirdness in stringing functions together -- might do more with Step Functions.
But weird part is some calls just seem to hang and never return -- unless they get a clean/new function of their own.
Using Pythom 3.8 with Boto3 library.
But generally amazed with what Lambda seems like it might be able to do if I can get it humming.
Visual editor for cubical-agda code, currently I am rewriting it in haskell and integrating with emacs. New version will allow to edit code in 3 and 4 dimensions :)
1. https://www.criarenquete.com.br - an easy and quick way to create a poll and share a link or embed it in your site.
2. https://www.gpebahia.com.br/gpe-pesquisa - a mobile app to collect surveys (with GPS tracking and random audio recording) and a dashboard administration to manage/monitor the surveys and extract data (pivot, frequency tables, etc.)
Not a side project, more of something I built for fun.
Would be nice to have a max size for the font on your headlines so they don't collide with each other :)
EDIT: Ok, I figure you must be using one of those ultrawides.
Thanks for pointing this out, I̶ ̶w̶i̶l̶l̶ ̶f̶i̶x̶ ̶i̶t̶ ̶t̶o̶d̶a̶y̶.̶
Fixed it :)
I've used this Okta tool for a while but it requires a browser. https://github.com/oktadeveloper/okta-aws-cli-assume-role
PS: out of curiosity, why do you host your own instance of GitLab? What's the overhead like?
Once I’m satisfied I have an old CMTS and limesdr sitting around I might try to build a custom DOCSIS modem with.
It enables you to have unlimited email address on your own domain and forward to a personal email address. You can reply through our SMTP server as well.
I have learn a lot about Postfix, email, DKIM, SPF, DMARC the past few months.
Ambitious to be sure, but after a year and a half I'm still consistently working on it, and still enjoying it!
Did it for my cousin's Shopify store originally, as she was getting a few of order cancellation requests via customer email almost everyday. Thought to automate to let customer by themselves, and she is quite happy with this lol, and a few other stores owner in Shopify liked this app as well.
Software to completely replace the core functionality of cameras like WyzeCam while allowing it to be used in a purely local (ie. cloud free) setup wihtout phoning home to anywhere.
200+ members and a few dozen paying subs, I’m ecstatic.
Worst case it'll be useful for me and my house mate who made the original request.
I feature random artists from around the world, plus a lot of classic art.
