Hi, I'm Nhân

and this is my humble corner on the interwebs.

I’ve written some open source software in my free time. In some cases I even maintain them! Shocking, I know.

Pytaku

Pytaku is a web-based manga reader that’s designed to be as self-host-friendly as possible. It’s an experiment to see how far I can get with a simpler toolset: basically just flask and sqlite (will most likely add mithril js into the mix soon). Still figuring stuff out as I go.

ORTS

ORTS is a GUI for operating scoreboards on fighting game streams.

An animated wallpaper for KDE Plasma

I was frustrated that KDE 5 didn’t allow animated gifs as wallpaper so I wrote one. Every now and then someone would use it on /r/unixporn and cause a surge in github stars. It is currently my most starred repo, which gives me mixed feelings.

McRoss

McRoss is a minimal and usable gemini:// browser written in python and tkinter, meaning it Just Works (tm) on any self-respecting desktop OS. Eventually Pytaku took most of my interest and time so it’s shelved for now.

Caophim

Caophim is my take on imageboard software and also my excuse to try Nim. There’s a usable live instance at caophim.net. It’s nowhere near my goals but to be honest I got tired of running into nim’s bugs, in the compiler, the standard library, the flagship module that’s supposed to supersede a module in the standard library… you name it. The straw that broke the camel’s back though, was this gem right here that remains unfixed to this day.
