What FOSS application or service do you wish existed?
Please Boost 🚀
@arran A beautiful non-electron desktop office suite for Linux
Also, an ASCIIdoc writer like Ghostwriter
@gotmax Nah in my case I'm using AMD graphics with an AMD CPU
@smir btw, thanks for recommending OO. I tried it before but it just froze like the screenshot I showed you so I immediately uninstalled it. Now I'm using it and it's working just fine :)
@brandon the most I like about it is the compatibility with Microsoft office formats (which I have to use in work) while libre office sadly breaks MS office formats most of time, especially powerpoint
@smir Funny enough, I had trouble opening a Calc file in WPS Office but not in ONLYOFFICE
How about it hid formatting options behind a paragraph/inline styles dropdown, to achieve a superficial simplicity whilst encouraging stronger typography? How about the ability to insert spreadsheet-style formulas anywhere, not just in a table?
Maybe some of my efforts building a smart TV browser engine from (relative) scratch could help here?
@arran I'd like some good games for kids, fun games where they at the same time learn things, like math, building things, solving puzzles, things like that. Not sure if that exists already, if so I don't know about it.
FPGA toolchains, open IC fab
Sophisticated reverse engineering tools, like decompilers
Sophisticated music production software
@x i find it kinda shitty tho, for instance, when decompiling a function that opens a file, r2ghidra shows only "stream = sym.imp.fopen();" and ghidra shows "fopen('file.txt')" so unfortunately i still use ghidra for a lot of things
@0xbiel Hmm, yeah that’s fair. Ghidra, besides being Java, is actually pretty awesome too.
@caskd we're just talking about downloading posts and placing them in textfiles (and downloading media)
even a bash script can do it
(I'm not talking about making the frontend, just the backend)
@caskd compared to my current client project, it's easy
@arran braw codec support in ffmpeg
