Deciphering Glyph :: Software You Can Use
The worse news is that every day we don’t have this, more and more people are re-writing their user-facing tools and applications in JavaScript or Go or Swift or Java, to suit their target platform, because it is honestly easier to learn an entirely new programming language and toolchain, and rewrite an entire application than to figure out how to build a self-contained executable in Python right now.

Minitube, YouTube app for Mac, Windows and Linux
You really *do* need to set up a Google API key for YouTube (v3):
Google is now requiring an API key in order to access YouTube Data web services. Create a "Browser Key" at and enable the Youtube Data API.

The key must be specified at compile time as shown below. Alternatively Minitube can read an API key from the GOOGLE_API_KEY environment variable.

Also, when building 2.9 from source (since 3.x is broken on Ubuntu 18.x and elementaryOS 5.0, Juno), you need a few more packages apart from those mentioned in the GitHub README:
<code class="language-bash">
sudo apt install libphonon-dev libphonon4qt5-dev

MenuLibre | Sean M. Davis
An alternative to LXMenuEditor that's already in the Debian repos.

A little buggy, but it works when Alacarte wont (which seems like never unless you're inside GNOME).

Desk Drive - Mike Ward
Desktop Media by Ian Perez stopped remembering the icon positions between reboots (with Win 7). This works fine. The 2.1 version, which requires .NET 4.5 is not required. The 1.85 version is plenty functional.

Update: still seems to work OK with Windows 10 in April 2018.
