This page houses some programming related resources that I have found useful while working on anything. It's starting out jumbled but will get more organized as I put more things in here.

1 LaTeX

While I haven't tried it yet, a modern solution if you write pure $$\LaTeX$$ and not Org or something is probably tectonic.

2 Tools

Few nifty tools. Along with the usual *nix pack, they make life so much easier as a programmer.

• Pandoc for document conversion. If you feel like something is off, check out filters.
• imagemagick for image manipulation. A lot of image-fu is possible just by piping through this.
• gifsicle for working with gifs
• ffmpeg for media conversion.
• graphviz and ditaa for making graphs, flowcharts etc. Both go really nicely in org-babel.
• q allows running SQL over CSVs.
• jq for working with json strings in command line.
• HTTPie as HTTP client. Just use curl. In Emacs, try restclient and ob-restclient.
• pup for working with html strings.
• aria2 for downloading the rest. There is an interface for Emacs but I haven't used it.
• live-server for avoiding python -m SimpleHTTPServer.
• ngrok for quickly exposing localhost.
• pgcli / mycli as db cli.
• tldr for quick docs.
• rg / ag for searching in code. Spacemacs has nice ag wrappers.
• csvkit for csv-fu. Haven't used it but tools like csvcut are really nice.
• Command line tools from poppler-utils can help you with almost every pdf related task.
• entr helps in rerunning commands based on file changes.
• SimpleScreenRecorder does most of the things I want. A few other fancier tools I tried don't work very nicely with tiling systems.
• I like termsql for working with tabular data in terminal. There might be better tools for particular use cases, but in general, just the possibility of using plain sql works nicely.
• ledger for accounting.
• diffoscope helps in diffing much more than just files.
• Though I don't use it, TaskJuggler looks like something that belongs here.
• gpsbabel for working with GPS logs and related file formats. You might also like to use GPXSee for visualizing tracks.
