Using KDE Connect to Sync your Android Device with Your Linux Computer :

It is a great app that does not require you to use KDE. There is an indicator applet to make KDE Connect work with every DE. This makes it even more awesome. 🙂


Turris Omnia

Home router is necessary to connect you to the Internet but it is idle most of the time,
just eating electricity. Why not use it for more tasks?
With powerful hardware, Turris Omnia can handle gigabit traffic and still be able to do much more.
You can use it as a home server, NAS, printserver and it even has a virtual server built-in.

Episode Idea – Ncurses everything :

Toxic is a Tox-based instant messenging client which formerly resided in the Tox core repository, and is now available as a standalone application.

Pipecut tries to facilitate the development of pipelines by letting you see your data and your shell commands at the same time, eliminating the back and forth editing cycle of entering and quitting more(or less), then recalling and editing the command line. Since pipecut has an AST view of the Unix command line, it can provide shortcuts, optimizations, and do code generation that would not be possible otherwise.

RTV is an application that allows you to view and interact with reddit from your terminal. It is compatible with most terminal emulators on Linux and OSX.

cmus is a small, fast and powerful console music player for Unix-like operating systems.

Tilde is a text editor for the console/terminal, which provides an intuitive
interface for people accustomed to GUI environments such as Gnome, KDE
and Windows. For example, the short-cut to copy the current selection is
Control-C, and to paste the previously copied text the short-cut Control-V can
be used. As another example, the File menu can be accessed by pressing Meta-F.
