Table of contents

The Apps I use the most are open source software in active development. Often, I notice bugs or I have ideas of possible improvements but I rarely have time to file a proper issue for every bug or a exhaustive post for a feature request. Thus, in this list I quickly note all the thoughts which pop up in my mind, hoping some day I’ll find enough time to effectively share my reports.

Signal #

Signal is the most secure and private messaging app in the world

  • markdown syntax (or any text formatting capability)
  • setting to choose to automatically download media

Loop habit tracker #

Loop Habit Tracker is an open source app for Self tracking

  • Add the capability of inserting daily numbers instead of boolean values only. (e.g. to track how many candies I ate)

Obsidian #

Obsidian is an awesome Zettelkasten management system which perfectly integrates with markdown and Jekyll.

  • choose to hide front matter when embedding other notes, even if “show YAML front matter” is switched on for the notes
  • printing all broken links
  • in editor mode last 2 letters are hidden. (fixed by setting .CodeMirror overflow: unset)
  • cursor error
  • make wiki-like links work in divs too

Cubbit #

Cubbit is a great decentralized cloud. I’m among the first backers and I love it.

  • Possibility to use a custom domain

Oxygen OS #

Oxygen OS is the Android flavor developed and used by OnePlus

  • match the lock screen and ambient display design (right now digital clocks have two different fonts and sizes)
  • add the capability to customize the alert slider

Joplin #

Joplin is a wonderful and complete note-taking app.

Note: I stopped using Joplin as my daily driver since November 2020 and I switched to Obsidian. The reasons why I did this are in this blog post.

  • when a completed to-do has an indented point, dim it too

Bugs #

  • cmd + E works only to switch external editing on, not to turn it off

Piwigo #

  • One thing I’m still trying to figure out is how to make more pictures appear for a gallery page. They are too few and it’s really complicated to modify the size of the thumbnail to make them look nice. ✅ 2021.01.07 it’s sufficient to go in the settings page of the user in question and change the value of “number of photos per page”
  • Sharing private galleries links (see GitHub issue)
  • Implement Collections, as in Flickr

Flickr2Piwigo #

A plugin to import pictures from Flickr.

  • Import album descriptions
  • Import Collections as parent albums

Zettlr #

Zettlr is the best Markdown editor out there.

Since November 2020 I stopped using Zettlr because its work could be made by Obsidian
  • Implement split view: two different notes side by side
