    None of the mentioned tools are specific to Fish shell. Most even work on Powershell

      That’s a really great point!

      I’m relearning React. It’s been two or three years since I last used it seriously, and I want to get comfortable with it once again especially when it comes to new features like Hooks.

      1. 1

        From a usuability point of view hooks look like a step-back to me. Also, while the previous version was not simple, I could imagine how it works under the hooks, and the upcoming scheduler are daunting. In any case, reactjs and react-query leads to code that is more difficult to read (they do not use async / await for performance reasons). WDYT?

        1. 2

          To be totally honest, I’m not a big fan of hooks (the little that I’ve used it). It feels like too much magic is going on, and it’s taking a while to wrap my head around it. But I want to keep an open mind and learn it properly since the community seems to largely accepted it as the new default way to write React.

          1. 1

            Did you change your mind regarding ReactJS and its hooks?

        I use zoxide (from the autojump family of tools) and let my computer remember my frequently used directories for me.

        (AFAIK autojump inspired j inspired j2 inspired z inspired z.lua inspired zoxide.)

        1. 2

          I also use zoxide because it supports both Powershell and fish unlike many of its predecessors

        1. 3

          I ditched standalone Linux for WSL2 sometime last year. I can’t remember the exact reason I switched but I knew I had had enough with the various problems I encountered, and at that time I had not used Windows in 5 years. Maybe I just looking for an excuse to try something new, but WSL paved the way and I don’t see myself turning back soon. Windows has its own annoyances, but once you set it up it should be (relatively) smooth sailing.

          1. 5

            Are there release notes?

              1. 5

                I’ve been using Thunderbird for many years now without extensions. Works perfectly for the most part, so can’t relate to your issues. The last email app I used that wasn’t Thunderbird, is Mailspring which was forked from Nylas N1, but I can’t remember why I stopped using it.

                1. 1

                  I agree. Thunderbird seems to be the least-worst option available. It also has a lot of “advanced” features such as a proper tree-thread view and the ability to pull up the full conversation (in tree form of course).

                  Personally I don’t like clients that linearize threads, it makes following discussions hard. I also can’t stand clients that thread based on subject (coughgmailcough).

                  1. 1

                    and the ability to pull up the full conversation

                    That’s a neat trick.
