GitHub logo YJDoc2 / 8086-emulator-web

Repository for 8086 emulator web implementation

A frontend only emulator for intel 8086 chip. Uses web assembly to emulate the microprocessor, so after loading pages, no requests are made.

My favourite part is it uses same core emulator as it's commandline version, just with a thin wrapper for web.

Hosted at for free as it's frontend only :)

Liked and starred ⭐️ I first learned programming on a 8086 board.

These power outage and memory allocation were fun 😉

Hey thanks for the ⭐ and like 😄
I hope you found the project interesting :)
I know it cannot compete with actually programming on an 8086 board, but we have tried to make it as close as we can ;)

Bot that converts Voice messages into text

It's a Telegram bot that converts voice messages to text.
Tried different approaches to make it as cheap as possible. (with limitations tho)
now it's 10k+ installs. 0 to 100% developed deployed and automated

GitHub logo VonHeikemen / tinytina-js

Command-line http client. Is like the mix of curl and postman that nobody asked for.

tinytina in its core is an http client that read data from a json schema.

My favorite I think is the convert-to command, converting a request from a json format to a curl command has proven to be very helpful. I can share my requests in the form of curl commands, so others don't have to download this tool.

I just made a toy programming language based on Lisp

GitHub logo faraazahmad / tisp

A toy programming language based on Lisp and built in Rust & LLVM

Tisp (Toy Lisp)

A Lisp-like programming language that is typed and compiled. It aims to support multiple processor architectures by being built upon LLVM. It takes inspiration from programming languages like Rust, Lisp and Elixir.

Current working example

A program to compute first 5 fibonacci numbers:

(let first 0)
(let second 1)
(let fib)
(let n 0)
(while (< n 5)
    (let fib (+ first second))
    (let second first)
    (let first fib)
    (let n (+ n 1))
    (print fib)
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

Features to build

  • Convert raw code into token stream
  • Convert token stream into Expression tree
  • Handle multiple levels of nested expressions
  • Have multiple (independent) expressions per file
  • Generate LLVM IR for the currently supported features
  • add CLI flag to emit llvm
  • add while loop
  • Declare variables
  • add nested while loops
  • Add types for…

Made a post about it if you're interested

An open-source programming language for developing chatbots. I just love how easy it makes it to create powerful chatbots, connected to any API, maintaining state, and giving you full control over your creation. Also, <3 the community around it!

🦜 Conversational Standard Meta Language


First programming language dedicated to building chatbots.

Rust GitHub release (latest by date) Docker Image Version (latest semver) Slack

Key FeaturesExampleUsageAdditional Information


CSML (Conversational Standard Meta Language) is a Domain-Specific Language designed for easily creating conversational experiences.

The purpose of this language is to simplify the creation and maintenance of rich conversational interactions between humans and machines. With a very expressive and text-only syntax, CSML flows are easy to understand, making it easy to deploy and maintain conversational agents. CSML handles short and long-term memory slots, metadata injection, and connecting to any third party API or injecting arbitrary code in any programming language thanks to its powerful runtime APIs.

Key Features

  • Super easy syntax
  • Conversation-oriented components
  • Native bindings with functions written in other languages
  • Chatbot-specific keywords
  • Out-of-the-box short-term and long-term memory slots

I'll risk coming across as trying too hard to be smart, but my favourite project is an empty lua project, because it's empty. It has no bugs, no complexity, no abstractions. It claims to solve no problems, an thus can't fail at any of its claims. It has 0 lines of code, aka. 0 potential bugs. It is guaranteed to have the least amount of code possible to fulfil its purpose. It's zen.

For a slightly less "clever" answer, I'd go with Skooma (and its translation into javascript); because it fixes a problem I often find with less code than any solution I've seen on the internet so far.

The functional way of generating HTML in Lua


A library to generate HTML pages in Lua using functional tools. This project is meant to be complementary to MoonXML with a stronger focus on performance and hackability and less on easy and quick template writing.


Because HTML sucks and most existing templating systems end up being glorified string interpolation.

Additionally, templates usually produce text output, which is very uncomfortable to modify, as that requires either parsing it back into a data structure or doing string replacement, which can easily break if the generated HTML changes or is simply dynamic in general.


Skooma is dead simple: every function returns a tree. No side effects.

After you're done applying whatever transformations to the ast, another function serializes it into HTML, which you can then use however you want.

When should I use this?

When you feel like your project has outgrown a simplistic approach on templating, for either…

You can read and understand the whole codebase in a matter of minutes and looking at the code would probably be quicker than reading a documentation.

Create a given ES6 class with private members using Proxy and closures. Keeps class code clean, encourages SRP and DRY.

🔒 Javascript Class-Privacy

Build Status JavaScript Style Guide Project Status: Active – The project has reached a stable, usable state and is being actively developed. npm bundle size

Lean dry no-dep srp :cup: package to create instances from classes with defined private members Keep your classes clean und use this instead to define private properties Uses proxies to hide information.

Installation and basic usage

Install this package via NPM like

$ npm install class-privacy
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

The packages exports only one function, that acts similar to an abstract factory You can pass in a decide function to define rules (e.g. whitelist) for members. The created factory can be used to create (proxies to) instances that contain only the public members.

import createFactory from 'class-privacy'
export class Person {
  constructor ({ name, age }) { = name
    this.age = age

  greet () {
    return `Hello, my name is "${}". I am ${this.age} years old.`

// make
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

Uses Proxy to control private/public fields or methods of any JavaScript class. Real private and 100% not accessible. Works with ES6 classes as well as "Classic" classes.

🍭 A vivid light VS Code color theme

Snazzy Light

Snazzy Light is a vivid light color theme. Its colors are based on Sindre Sorhus' hyper-snazzy, adapted to a light background.

Besides looking decent, the main goal of this theme is to show clear and distinct colors under bright ambient light conditions. This makes it suitable e.g. for train commute with intense sunlight.

This theme's color palette


Screenshot of some JavaScript sample code Screenshot of some Sass sample code Screenshot of some HTML sample code Screenshot of some PHP sample code Screenshot of some Markdown sample code

Thanks a lot to Umut, the author of the fantastic Bluloco Light theme, for providing the syntax highlighting samples.


I have tested Snazzy Light with a plethora of languages. However, I'm not proficient in many of them and may not have quite the right sense for how things should look.

If something looks off in your preferred language, feel free to open an issue and we can improve the colors together.

It's probably my least "programmy" project but still one of my favorites — the light VS Code theme I use by day. Mostly created out of dissatisfaction with existing light themes and the need to use more distinct colors due to intense sunlight while commuting.

Svelte inview -
A Svelte component that monitors an element enters or leaves the viewport/parent element. Performant and efficient thanks to using Intersection Observer under the hood. Can be used in multiple projects including lazy loading images, infinite scrolling, playing/pausing the video when in the viewport, tracking user behaviour firing link pre-fetching and animations and many many more.
