Since 2007, we at DonationCoder have held an annual event that we call NANY (New Apps for the New Year), where we ask the coders who hang out on our site to create some new piece of free software and share it with the world on January 1st of the new year. For NANY 2018, I released two new programs:
- SubAHK, a Subsonic desktop client. I’ve run my own personal Subsonic server for many years and make use of several different clients depending on platform (Android, Windows, etc.). However, none have the sort of easy playlist manipulation I want, so I started writing SubAHK. It’s not feature complete at this time but still worth a look if you run, or have access to, a Subsonic server.
- WHAT (Window Hotkey Activator Tool) is tiny program that lets you assign hotkeys to activate/focus windows.
Also, we recently completed a move to an entirely new CMS and server. It was a major accomplishment and props to all involved…you know who you are. So, if you find any of my pages or links not working, please let me know via my Contact form. Also, if you followed my previous RSS feed, please note that it has changed as well. You can find the new link in the sidebar or right here: http://www.dcmembers.com/skwire/feed/
For this year’s 2017 New Apps for the New Year (NANY) promotion at DonationCoder, I’ve released four new programs:
Drive Letters Tool: Change the way drive letters are displayed in Windows Explorer and other Windows dialogs.
sLyrics: Lyric app using the ChartLyrics API from the ChartLyrics website.
sPinger: Ping multiple IP addresses and hostnames with fun icon themes.
TrayLang: Displays a tray icon indicating the currently selected keyboard layout. Lots of icon themes included.
My NANY 2015 entry this year is called Splat which is short for Simple Program Launching and Termination. It’s sort of hard to describe but, at its core, it’s a profile-based application launching tool. Take a look at the screenshot to get a better idea.
In addition, I’ve released three other applications since the last post (including one today):
Simple checklist app. Just rows of text entries and a checkbox for each. No B.S., i.e., no categories, no sub-tasks, no time tracking, and no other crazy wizzbang features.
GUI front-end for sigcheck.exe from Sysinternals.
Arti (Aspect Ratio Tool for Images)
Small application that lists aspect ratios for images. Exact ratios are listed in addition to a nearest match ratio based on a configurable preset list.
