I will write the list of apps that I use to finish my task. This list of applications do not mean to say that foo app is better than baz app, every app has it is own audience.
Other than that, I keep this list to know what app I have to consider my self to donate.
audacious (3 years) ⇨ cmus (1 year) ⇨ mpv (now)
I like the tabbed playlist UI from
audacious, and I think this is the only music player in GNU/Linux that has a tabbed-playlist. Then I move to
cmus, and now I use
mpv. I invoke
mpvwithin Dired Emacs, so I can choose to play one song repeatedly, or one directory, or playlist of songs defined in plain text.
This is enough for my needs.
LibreCalc (1 year) ⇨ hledger (2 years) ⇨ GnuCash (now)
hledgerintegrated well with emacs, sadly I do most transaction while holding my mobile phone, not my laptop. So it is easier for me to add transaction to GNUCash Android immediately, then sync it with GNUCash on my laptop.
- Quassel (2 years) ⇨ Hexchat (1 year) ⇨ Irssi (1 year) ⇨ ERC (now)
Data Backup & Recovery
DejaDup (past 1 year) ⇨ Borgbackup
I love how
BorgBackuphandle diffs, compression, pruning old archive, and mounting them to browse certain files I lost.
- Theme: Arc Theme
- Cursor: La Capitaine Icon Theme
- Icons: Papirus Icon Theme
Geany / Kate ⇨ Emacs (now)
I do everything with text mostly with Emacs, from taking notes, maintaining TODOs, writing code, etc.
- Mutt ⇨ Mu4e
- Nemo (2 years) ⇨ Dolphin (2 years) ⇨ Midnight Commander (1 year) ⇨ Dired Emacs and Thunar
Gwenview (1 year) ⇨ feh ⇨ xsiv
fehdoes not support viewing gif, so I move to xsiv
- KScrenshot (1 year) ⇨ scrot ⇨ maim and flameshot
Silentcast (2 years) ⇨ Peek
I move to
Peekwork so horrible and produce Gigabyte of gif even for short recording. After two years I move back to
Peeksince it’s easier for me to start and stop, and the previous bug was fixed.
OpenShot and KDEnlive
OpenShotfor quick and fast editing,
KDEnlivefor complex editing.
Because of its mission.
The only reason I still have doubts using it, because it pulls tons of KDE dependency which I never use.
- keepassX ⇨ Emacs Org with GnuPG
- Konsole (2 years) ⇨ Uxrvt ⇨ St
I need a minimalist terminal since it is only a host for my
- Gramps genealogy software
I use Syncthing to sync ebooks and org files from my mobile phone to my laptops.
I use this to sync configs, code, files across my machine.
Dukto ⇨ Nitroshare
nitrosharewhen someone asks big files from my machine, I use it with crossover LAN cable.
Duktowas slow to detect a pair, so I moved to
Octopress ⇨ Pelican
Octopressis huge and I can’t even know why certain files exist, then I move to
Pelican. The reason also to have full control of pelican and to make me easier for modification, since I work mostly with Python.
mpv and vlc
Mostly I use
vlconly for supplies.
