CommitStrip nails it once again …
This is awesome!
eDEX-UI is a science fiction terminal that runs on most operating systems. It was heavily inspired by the user interfaces in sci-fi movies, like TRON, Minority Report, and others. While it’s not very practical for the day-to-day use for anyone heavily using command line, it’s a lot of fun to run when there are non-technical people around, staring at your screen.
The installation is pretty simple:
git clone https://github.com/GitSquared/edex-ui.git cd edex-ui npm run install-linux npm start
I think it works even better with a large touch screen, but I don’t have one around to try it on.
I have recently blogged about the Faces of Open Source project. That’s a great initiative. But here’s another one, with a lot more practical approach – Programmer Playing Cards. It is a deck of playing cards, featuring people who influenced the world of computer programming in a variety of ways. Each card has a photo of a person, his or her name, what was the influence, and, as a nice touch, a quote from that person.
Here’s an example with Larry Wall.
More examples as well as instructions on how to get these cards are here.
