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.
While I haven't tried it yet, a modern solution if you write pure \(\LaTeX\) and not Org or something is probably tectonic.
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.
- youtube-dl for downloading media.
- 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
csvcutare really nice.
- Command line tools from
poppler-utilscan 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.
