Software Projects I’ve Worked On
This is a non-exhaustive list of projects I’ve worked on over the years, in a
format loosely inspired by @jcs. As a general rule,
this list doesn’t include projects I’ve written on behalf of employers, even if
those projects were open source (for that stuff, see my resume).
It also doesn’t include a myriad of partially-baked ideas that might have gotten
a Git repository and a few (or even few dozen) commits but ultimately went
nowhere: maybe I need a
graveyard.html for those…
2021 - present; Zig
An experiment in a stack-based-to-the-logical-conclusion, type-safe-enough, ultra-high-level Forth-Lisp-Rust-Lua spiritual hybrid of sorts. Very much a work in progress.
2023 - present; Rust
A CLI to provide the absolute basics of authoring an Atom feed as an XML file on disk, targeted towards DIY bloggers using static site generators (or just plain old HTML files) that don't already generate Atom feeds.
A quick-reference tool for FIRST Tech Challenge referees who otherwise have to string together numerous sources of rules and interpretations.
Not My Direct Focus, But Maintained
2021 - present; Zig
A simple converter of ANSI-escaped terminal output into class-annotated HTML for web rendering.
2022 - present
A tongue-in-cheek software license that has never, to my knowledge, been used on an actual project, but has made many dozens of people laugh, and that's all it had to do.
Adopted Out To The Community
2018 - 2023 (ish); CircuitPython
A mechanical keyboard firmware that is fully implemented in CircuitPython, where the source code of the board *lives on the board* and can be edited freely over the USB MSC interface ("flash drive").
What do you mean "2023 (ish)?"
Putting dates on this is tricky: the core development spanned 2018-19, I then backed off a good bit but had "some" involvement for several years, and finally some time in 2022-23ish I started taking active steps to enable the community to choose the project's destiny on their own (including appointing new admins to various tools used). As of 2023, I consider myself something of a retired advisor to the project: I'm happy to help resolve disputes or provide mentorship and guidance, but have zero input on the day to day runnings of the project, and frankly almost certainly could not meaningfully contribute code to the current codebase without relearning it from scratch.
A preprocessor of sorts to generate QMK mechanical keyboard firmware code to make the keyboard type out Unicode emojis. While the source code still builds (thanks, Rust 1.x guarantees!), I'm not sure if the code it generates still makes any sense against any QMK codebase of the 2020s.
A utility to provide an analogue to `git blame` for GitHub pull requests, allowing associating a commit with the pull request it came from. This has long since bitrotten away from various library and API upgrades, and targeted a now-EOL Python version. Please don't use this.
