Jailbreak Firefox!


This script allows you to install unsigned extensions (ones that aren't approved by Mozilla) on normal Firefox builds and the official Snap! That's right, no "Firefox Developer Edition" nonsense required!

⚠️ Disclaimer ⚠️

This script is not well tested, like at all. This script might break things, possibly important things. You should probably take a backup of your Firefox profile before using it. You have been warned.


sudo apt install -y curl unzip zip
# Only needed when jailbreaking the Snap

Because cross-compiling binaries for Windows is easier than building natively

Because cross-compiling binaries for Windows is easier than building natively

I want Microsoft to do better, want Windows to be a decent development platform-and yet, I constantly see Microsoft playing the open source game: advertising how open-source and developer friendly they are - only to crush developers under the heel of the corporate behemoth's boot.

The people who work at Microsoft are amazing, kind, talented individuals. This is aimed at the company's leadership, who I feel has on many occassions crushed myself and other developers under. It's a plea for help.

The source of truth for the 'open source' C#, C++, Rust, and other Windows SDKs is proprietary

You probably haven't heard of it before, but if you've ever used win32 API bindings in C#, C++, Rust, or other languages, odds are they were generated from a repository called microsoft/win32metadata.

A curated list of command-line utilities written in Rust

Note that I have not tried all of these personally, and cannot and do not vouch for all of the tools listed here. In most cases, the descriptions here are copied directly from their code repos. Some may have been abandoned. Investigate before installing/using.

The ones I use regularly include: bat, dust, exa, fd, hyperfine, miniserve, ripgrep, just, zoxide and cargo-wipe.

  • atuin: "Magical shell history"
  • bandwhich: Terminal bandwidth utilization tool
  • bat: A replacement for cat that provides syntax highlighting and other features.
  • bottom: Yet another cross-platform graphical process/system monitor.

Fabric Server Optimization

Fabric Server Optimization

This gist is aimed at 1.18-19.2 and all the optimizations mentioned here do not affect vanilla behaviour.


Lithium - A mod designed to drastically improve the general performance of Minecraft without breaking things.

Starlight - A mod that rewrites the light engine to fix lighting performance and lighting errors.


I do not maintain this list anymore:
