    I wonder if asus marketing team even tried to google for IoT devices, and what people expect from it. https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B01N35PQ9U price and reviews make it clear that they did not.

      Looks interesting but FWIW I think Magit is really nice for this (among other things) so I personally probably won’t switch, but maybe it’ll be useful for people who don’t use Emacs. It’s also good to know that there’s an equivalent for Mercurial, ‘cause I miss Magit when I work on Mercurial repositories.

      1. 3

        agree with @0, magit is much better :)

        1. 2

          Magit is good for Emacs users or people who prefer doing all things in their editor of choice. I prefer using my editor (which is vim, by the way) for editing things, and committing/diffing/etc from the command line.

          There’s tig, but I personally find it much less intuitive than crecord.

          Chrome on OpenBSD? How is that possible? I want it on OpenIndiana :)

          1. 1

            With pain. A lot of pain.

            Would be great if the DSL input was textarea

              I hoped to see xiki, but looks like the post is python-centric mostly

              1. 2

                Xiki is perhaps interesting… I hadn’t heard of it and only took a brief look so far.

                My post wasn’t Python centric at all though. I think only iPython was for Python of all of the things I mentioned?

                I am in the mountains in Thailand this weekend with poor and very slow internet access.

                1. 1

                  I don’t think the intent was to be python-specific. xiki is a good example of the general topic.

                  dead link? or lobsters-effect? :)

                  1. 2

                    Seems to be working now for me, as of this morning.

                    1. 1

                      It’s down for me too. Fortunately, there’s source on GitHub.

                      1. 1

                        I saw a discussion on reddit where the author stated he didn’t want this exposed yet. He may have taken it down in response. As mentioned by @daGrevis, the sources can be found on GitHub though.

                      1. 5

                        This is a real pain point I had the last time I looked at Go. I found it very difficult to find exactly which packages are getting serious attention - I found several other curated lists, but those seem to get stale quickly.

                        For example: I wanted to find a Golang Kyoto Cabinet binding. My Googling found cat-v’s list which is ~2 years old, and the Go Wiki’s list which had two options, so I picked the most up to date, and it seemed to work.

                        But now, compare that with Ruby. And hell, if Go had something like Pypi, I might’ve learned about Bolt.

                        If nothing else, if someone made a website that showed commit/fork/star activity on various github projects and sliced it up by category (web framework/DB/…), I think it would be an immense help.

                        1. 2

                          just like https://www.ruby-toolbox.com/, right?

                          1. 1

                            I feel you, package discovery has definitely been kind of annoying. I’ve found these very helpful:

                            Wondering if there’s someone working on indexing/categorizing Go packages from different sources. Would definitely be a cool project, and would definitely build it on Go :)

                          1. 3

                            If you need email integration, you should definitely try http://lighthouseapp.com/

                            They did it perfectly

                            1. 4

                              We’ve been using Lighthouse for awhile and it’s a great little application. I’m a little disappointed that the company behind it doesn’t seem to be improving it, but on the other hand, they got a lot right in the current version. Simple tracking, bulk operations, good email integration, tagging, and a straightforward API. Much simpler than JIRA overall. And it’s extremely affordable even for mid-size teams.

                            1. 2

                              You will receive a Pushover notification for each section wherein it’s enabled on https://lobste.rs/settings. So, replies to your comment, mentions of you in comments, and private messages.

                              And yes, it works.

                              1. 1

                                Okay. Got it. I’ve received automatic private message re tag change. What about having option to receive notifications on new stories, new comments to my stories and stories I’m participating?

                              1. 2

                                I’ve released rubygem quvi, a wrapper over libquvi to extract info from media sites like YouTube
