I’m a big fan of automating things that can possibly be automated. One of the biggest pains that I’ve consistently had is creating/tagging releases of software. This has been a very manual process for me. I have to write up changelogs, bump versions and then replicate the changelog/versions in the web UI of whatever git forge the project in question is using. This works great at smaller scales, but can quickly become a huge pain in the butt when this needs to be done more often. Today I’ve written a small tool to help me automate this going forward, it is named gitea-release. This is one of my largest Rust projects to date and something I am incredibly happy with. I will be using it going forward for all of my repos on my gitea instance tulpa.dev.
Today it is time to announce gitui. Over the last couple of weeks, my side project was this little tool. gitui is becoming my GUI alternative for using git. So far it only supports a few features but my goal is to extend it as needed. My focus is not to build a git cli substitute though, gitui is supposed to help out on tasks that are cumbersome to do on the cli for pure mortals like me.
git-trim automatically trims your git remote tracking branches that are merged or gone.
Today I'm happy to announce the first release of dev-suite, a cross platform collection of tools designed to redistribute distributed work and help remove vendor lock in from large corporations. You can find a read-only copy of the code on these three sites:
In an effort to build the future I laid out in my initial post about dev-suite I self host the write version of the repo and automatically push changes to the sites above so people can view the code on their platform of choice. The goal of dev-suite is to provide similar or better functionality to the above sites and have things live alongside your code so that it won't matter where you host your code. Making it easier to leave the platforms if they support organizations like ICE or do something you're not comfortable with. You're free to move wherever rather than being tied to a centralized service owned by some large corporation due to it's integrations and value add such as ticketing or CI/CD. I'll talk more about how this works with the tools released today and how you can get involved down below.
