So I'm trying to remedy my carpal tunnel by considering making the decision to give up my mouse completely, and use only the keyboard. I look through a fairly recent discuss thread just about that, and I find the Wox repo. It's basically Alfred/Launchy from Windows. Awesome, night's off to a good start.
And then I notice this:
bless | Ramen???
Turns out it's a package to bless your code. And that's just amazing, cause while we work hard (usually) on developing useful tools for the world, it's makes me feel all good inside that someone spent some time to make it possible for ramen to bless our code.
So here we are, on a Thursday night: me, asking you what your favorite useless programming thing is, and you, hopefully showing me a whole new world.

I really love using cfonts to spice up my shell scripting :)
Definitely got to keep that one in mind :-) . Also, I guess it tells a lot about your mindset if you write down the whole alphabet and 0 to 9 as a list instead of going [A-Z], [0-9] :-D
Aha that's great!
I use figlet to tell me what machine I've shelled into. Non-useless, because I'm an idiot and will get it wrong otherwise!
Also, piping it through lolcat makes it all pretty.
I'm quite fond of Vanilla JS
I LOL'd - literally...
I laughed way too hard at this!
I am using this in my next project.
Ahh, thats hot
That one is awesome! Trying to sneak that into the next project :D
The BlessYourCodeTag is definitely up there on my list.
Also, activate-power-mode. (Thanks @ben )
Hell yes, I'm very glad activate-power-mode exists.
Now with a COMBO MODE!!!
The world needs more of this
We should eventually add the ability to render things easily on the window bitmap to Emacs someday...
I've seen that being used in a Code in the Dark challenge. It was hilarious as hell!
I used this package when taking lecture notes all last semester, it helped to keep things interesting in non-CS courses.
I used it some time with my hyper.js terminal...
When I saw your comment, my first imagination was how you sit in front of your keyboard, smashing the keys, almost turning into a super saiyajin :D
Yup, came to post activate-power-mode :)
Is there an extension for VSCode as well? 😊
@cloudpower97 indeed :D marketplace.visualstudio.com/items...
Nice, thank you!
Going to have some fun with this extension 😂
A Latex package to add coffee stains.
Update: I took it down when I moved my website. Sorry! It was useless anyway.
Well I did this: rekt.daniguardiola.me/
oh god my ears
I made the mistake of clicking this in the office with my sound on
Is it wrong that I recognized
It's good to some fun with what you love i guess
Emacs "Zone"-Mode (It comes with Emacs)
We've got GitHub flavored markdown, so it's like so:
We'll definitely add it in the markdown cheatsheet though, not the first time someone's wondered. 🙃
This one is funny and potentially useful once every blue moon: foaas.com/
My favorite has to be /dev/null as a Service.
Thanks for the tip - maybe I can be their next "Map-Enlarge Engineer"...
Hard to go past System.Ben for me. Best .NET library in the world...
Fast and secure - by default!
Check out the cool demo page
This is pretty cool
This one is a-mazing: projects.haykranen.nl/java/
I really like doge
TrumpScript - Making Python Great Again (github.com/samshadwell/TrumpScript)
It's a programming language inspired by Trump, and as a result is entertaining to read about but impossible to make use of for anything serious (as the docs say). Here's some of the features:
I created an automated religious API so you can pray the API god with an API call. Basically, automating religion. Jagon API
I usually pray whenever I start a build in my CI. Completely useless.
