I am using something similar, Franz https://meetfranz.com/ it’s pretty neat and works well with Linux.

Franz – a free messaging app for Slack, Facebook Messenger, WhatsApp, Telegram and more

Franz is a free messaging app /former emperor of Austria, that combines chat & messaging services into one application.

nutellinoit

I’m using franz too

Nikola Velkovski

I was using rambox before and the quality of the app steadily degraded over time until it became unusable.

Shift

Jonathan Le

shift copied the code base and put some better icons on it, but i both respect and annoys me

Erik Osterman

oh wow

Erik Osterman

seems totally like they just ripped ‘em off

Jonathan Le

i respect the shift hustle for SURE, but i also don’t like they ripped off the OSS codebase.

pretty happy wavebox - I’m grandfathered into their super cheap 20$ a year plan…

https://checkvist.com/ - I use this app like for an year for the personal tasks management (on the free tier), if you’re into keyboard shorcuts (a-la vim) & markdown then that’s a very good option

Checkvist: Keyboard-centric outliner and task manager

With Checkvist you can create and share online outlines, project plans, online checklists, and task lists. Very keyboard friendly, with code, Markdown, and OPML support.

@Erik Osterman after the quick check of Toby I believe I like sessionbuddy more as it remembers the pinned/unpinned tab status as well

Erik Osterman

“tab status”?

Erik Osterman

One thing neat about toby is it’s designed for teams

Erik Osterman

So at cloudposse, we can have a common/shared set of bookmarks

I mean that I want to have tabs pinned in Chrome if they were pinned when I saved them

Erik Osterman

Aha! Now I follow

Manage complex tmux sessions easily. Contribute to tmuxinator/tmuxinator development by creating an account on GitHub.

Nikola Velkovski

I actually find this as a better replacement without the learning curve http://vimcasts.org/episodes/neovim-terminal/

you mean as replacement for “tmux” probably?

Nikola Velkovski

well I don’t think it can replace a heavyweight app like tmux but if you strive for simplicity I would rather use terminal than tmux

tmuxinator is working on top of tmux, allowing to create the whole workspace (for me it means several tmux windows with panes in each, and opening some directories, launching commands, etc)

everthing with one command “mux start {project_name}”

saves a lot of time on my side

and I have several iTerm tabs with a different project in each

it’s basically one of the 2 major reasons I cannot work with osX

Erik Osterman

I use this as my primary “work” space these days (~5mo)

Erik Osterman

I feel like it’s the best of both worlds

The Amazon Linux WorkSpaces Desktop is based on MATE
this is exactly what I am using, it is a continuation of gnome2 and it’s the most stable ( boring ) desktop enviornment of them all

Erik Osterman

boring indeed

Erik Osterman

It was painful for the first ~2 weeks looking at it

Erik Osterman

but I’ve gotten used to it

Nikola Velkovski

What i’ve noticed over the years, in osX and Ios there’s always a (0,5 secs I presume ) lag in the GUI

Nikola Velkovski

and it has always bothered me. I don’t know if it’s on purpose or not.
