Is it possible to only use straight lines in a class diagram? - PlantUML

At least there is an option to use straight lines. Curved lines in an UML diagram look really strange to me. The implementation is far from perfect, but gets the job done for now.

Arc42 by Example

Real software architectures, documented with the arc42 template. Helps you jumpstart your own documentation.

When I'm finished with my current Arc42 book, this seems to be a good follow-up read.

Notion – The all-in-one workspace for your notes, tasks, wikis, and databases.

Write, plan, collaborate, and get organized. Notion is all you need — in one tool.

Looks interesting, but I guess I have no need for it in my current workflow. Maybe this is something for the future.

The Productivity Stack

A good overview about different productivity tools and their place on the productivity stack.

remove.bg: Remove Background from Image

This is simply amazing. Remove the background from any portrait image automatically. This will come in handy someday.

The Illustrated TLS 1.3 Connection: Every Byte Explained

A revised edition in which we dissect the new manner of secure and authenticated data exchange, the TLS 1.3 cryptographic protocol.

Dinge, die man am Feiertag so machen kann: Den Server im RZ in Frankreich aus einer Boot-Kernel-Panic retten zum Beispiel. Orrrr.

EditorConfig

EditorConfig helps developers define and maintain consistent coding styles between different editors and IDEs. The EditorConfig project consists of a file format for defining coding styles and a collection of text editor plugins that enable editors to read the file format and adhere to defined styles. EditorConfig files are easily readable and they work nicely with version control systems.

This looks useful for open source projects (and companies where everybody chooses its own editor).

tmux-resurrect: Persists tmux environment across system restarts

tmux-resurrect saves all the little details from your tmux environment so it can be completely restored after a system restart (or when you feel like it). No configuration is required. You should feel like you never quit tmux.

Just added this to my tmux setup. Let's see how it works out in the long run.

 

Was für ein albernes Design-Pattern ist eigentlich dieses "Wir zeigen das Passwort-Eingabefeld erst an, wenn Du die E-Mail eingegeben hast"...

Huginn

Huginn is a system for building agents that perform automated tasks for you online. They can read the web, watch for events, and take actions on your behalf. Huginn's Agents create and consume events, propagating them along a directed graph. Think of it as a hackable version of IFTTT or Zapier on your own server. You always know who has your data. You do.

 

Together

The together project is an IndieWeb environment for reading, discovering, and interacting with content. You might call it a reader.

An alternative reader for the IndieWeb if you are not into Monocle.

Aperture

Aperture is a Microsub server. Microsub is a spec that provides a standardized way for reader apps to interact with feeds. By splitting feed parsing and displaying posts into separate parts, a reader app can focus on presenting posts to the user instead of also having to parse feeds. A Microsub server manages the list of people you're following and collects their posts, and a Micropub app shows the posts to the user by fetching them from the server.

Another piece of the IndieWeb puzzle.

Indiepaper: A read later service built for the open web

Have you ever stumbled upon an article that you want to read, but don't have the time to read right away? Indiepaper is here to help! Send your articles to Indiepaper using the bookmarklet, macOS app, or iOS Workflow, and Indiepaper will extract the article contents and save it for later by publishing to your micropub server.

Indiepaper pairs wonderfully with microsub servers like Aperture and Indie Reader apps like Together, Indigenous, and Monocle.

Yet another IndieWeb project for those cold dark winter nights.

Sim Daltonism

From the perspective of a color blind person, some colors are impossible to distinguish. Sim Daltonism lets you visualize colors as they are perceived with various types of color blindness. Use the camera on your iOS device, or use the Mac app to filter a region of the screen.
