shundhammer/qphotoview: Qt-based photo viewer that concentrates on what photographers need.
I like how salty this guy is about all the "other" Linux image viewers. Gave a shoutout to 'xv' though!

Working on CityDesk, Part Five – Joel on Software
4. If You Can Only Do One Platform, Do Windows.

I’d love to have a Mac version and a Linux version, but they are not good uses of limited resources. Every dollar I invest in CityDesk Windows will earn me 20 times as many sales as a dollar invested in a hypothetical Mac version. Even if you assume that Mac has a higher percentage of creative and home users, I’m still going to sell a heck of a lot more copies on Windows than I could on Mac. And that means that to do a Mac version, the cost had better be under 10% of the cost of a Windows version. Unfortunately, that’s nowhere near true for CityDesk. We benefit from using libraries that are freely available on Windows (like the Jet multiuser ACID database engine and the DHTML edit control) for which there are no equivalents on the Macintosh. So if anything, a Mac port would cost more than the original Windows version. Until somebody does something about this fundamental economic truth, it’s hard to justify Mac versions from a business perspective. (Incidentally, I have said time and time again, if Apple wants to save the Mac, they have to change this equation.)

And don’t get me started about Linux. I don’t know of anyone making money off of Linux desktop software, and without making money, I can’t pay programmers and rent and buy computers and T1s. Despite romantic rhetoric, I really do need to pay the rent, so for now, you’re going to have to rely on college kids and the occasional charitable big company for your Linux software.

GitHub - brrd/Abricotine: Markdown editor with inline preview |
What I like about this one (even though Hundred Rabbits' "Left" has this feature) is the TOC sidebar.

However, it has a security problem (you need to disable iframe and image preview in the 'config.json'), detailed here:

Sqliteman - sqlite developer/admin tool
tl;dr: use

Source code is here () and binaries are here (

If this guy's legit, dev needs to get his shit together, because it's sketchy when things point all over the place, he's asking for money transferred via IBAN, and there hasn't been an update since 2010.

GitHub - nteract/nteract: Interactive literate coding notebook!
The second command really *is* necessary:
At least for now, we need the python 3 kernel installed when hacking on nteract:

IDLE and tkinter with Tcl/Tk on macOS |
In either case, the dynamically linking occurs when tkinter (Python 3) or Tkinter (Python 2) is first imported (specifically, the internal _tkinter C extension module). By default, the macOS dynamic linker looks first in /Library/Frameworks for Tcl and Tk frameworks with the proper major version.
