It got some new features, like a quick filter for the history list, and a small options screen. There are other small features and fixes too. It even has a new 3D icon, which I am not sure I like.
UPDATE 22 Sept: It is now at v0.6.1, with some small fixes and a new icon.
I’ve been using youtube-dl for years and for some time I’ve needed a front-end for it, so that my command-line history is not filled with videos I watched when I should have been working.
Enter then the youtube-dl front-end, which allows me to keep a history of downloaded media, arranging the files in their correct folders, and a few other features. The other front-ends for youtube-dl I’ve run across on the internet all seem to suffer from bloat, which is something I like to avoid whenever possible. Hopefully others will find a good use for it too. It is currently at version 0.5, but everything should be working. So if something isn’t working, and you can type on a keyboard, then let me know.
Updates on other things: The site’s been quiet, but I have been working like a bastard behind the scenes. At the moment I try to keep to a pattern of working on one project on weekends and another during week days, which seems to be going well.
After playing one of the Bloodsword gamebooks in IRC, I was inspired to create a small networked RPG. So at the end of March 2020 I started working on such a game, not knowing how much work would have to go into it. Nine months later, and still barely in 2020, this server delivered Starship Light.
It’s still in beta, with some issues that need to be worked out, but it is quite playable. The first thing that it needs though is support for linux.
Do you have friends online that are nurds? If so, then Starship Light might be the game for you. It’s freeware and DRM-free, and might promote spiritual well-being.
