Two open source applications
I want to develop at least two open source projects:
The most important one is a new file manager. What is interesting about it:
- Very feature rich. Very. Features that no other file managers have.
- Cross platform. It can run on Windows, Linux, Mac and BSD.
- Single executable with no dependencies on Windows, Linux and Mac.
- Can run on old versions of Windows and Linux. Even Windows XP. Maybe the same on Windows 98, Mac and BSD.
- Very small size. Less than 10 MB for the entire application.
- Extremely customizable.
- Extreme care with user experience. The only application you will see in your life that really cares about left-handed and right-handed people.
The second application is a kind of download manager. The idea is that you configure your browser to always download everything to the same directory and the manager will automatically move each downloaded file to wherever you want according to your own criteria. Your criteria can be very simple or very complicated. Everything is logged so you always know what went where. It's a secondary project.
I also have two or three other minor projects that I have abandoned and may be revived eventually. One of them measures and compares performance and capacities of multiple file systems on Linux.
The file manager has been started, it has the most basic functions working, but my activity is suspended because I am too busy struggling to survive.
I originally intended to make these for free, but I've been struggling way too much with my usual work and my personal bills. Even eating has been difficult. That makes me nervous, scared and depressed. I have no stomach to code under the pressure of losing my home at any day.
