A nice, retro-looking dashboard for organizing your environments. Instant local search, keyboard shortcuts, themable, customizable. YAML config file. Icons can be customized as well. Theoretically small enough to carry around on your mobile device. Uses yarn to install dependencies and compile. Themes can be switched out in realtime.
Reminds me a bit of GEOS or Workbench.
Serve with any web server; the Docker container uses nginx, but use whatever.
This is a list of small, free, or experimental tools that might be useful in building your game / website / interactive project. Although I’ve included ‘standards’, this list has a focus on artful tools and toys that are as fun to use as they are functional.
The goal of this list is to enable making entirely outside of closed production ecosystems or walled software gardens.
A Pixel Art Editor. Self hosted. Single page app. Draw old-school pixel art by hand in your web browser, save the images locally. Can assemble frames into an animated gif. Can even import an image file and turn it into an approximate pixel art image. Can be installed as a progressive web app but good luck getting those to work.
This webring is for homepages of people who are interested in low tech, small game tools, and other forms of Web 1.0 inspired creativity.
snakeware is a free Linux distro with a Python userspace inspired by the Commodore 64. You are booted directly into a Python interpreter, which you can use to do whatever you want with your computer. Our window manager, snakewm, is based on pygame/pygame_gui. We do not use X11; snakewm draws directly to /dev/fb0.
We also are not going to be using any other huge and opaque software such as systemd, etc. The goal is to eventually have a usable set of userspace apps and utilities written entirely in Python, because Python is fun and it Just Werks™.
A site dedicated to gathering as much information as possible about the productions, the groups, the sceners, the events and bbs's in the Commodore 64 scene. You can help this database grow by submitting information about the productions/groups/sceners/events/bbs you know about.

his package ports the XMODEM, YMODEM and ZMODEM protocols to Python. We try to implement the protocols as minimalistic as possible without breaking the protocol specifications. All modem implementations must be given a getc callback to retrieve character data from the remote end and a putc callback to send character data.
A retrofuturistic transhuman game where you hunt down uploaded renegades in a mesh network.
