CephFS client for Android using the Linux Kernel Library and Wireguard

a project by dmdiss

CephFS is awesome, but without a VPN it's not safe to be routed over the internet, and it lacks client support on many platforms. The Linux Kernel Library allows for the linux kernel to be built as a cross-platform user-space library and integrated into a regular Android, Windows, macOS, etc. application. This project combines CephFS, LKL and wireguard, and sprinkles some io-uring on top. My objectives are:

Advanced online payment app for desktop

an idea by MDoucha

There are mobile payment apps which allow you to pay via QR code. But I couldn't find any app that would work on desktop e.g. via special URI. So here's my idea: Create a universal URI scheme for payments that can launch a handler app (just like mailto: URIs can open your e-mail client). This app could then send wire transfer instructions to your bank account via public internet banking API (if your bank has one). The app would also have a server-side e-shop module for payment processing which would allow instant checkout (if you bank supports instant wire transfers to the e-shop's bank account).

Fix order of use co-operation between vlc and camsource applications

a project by dmair

Using the camsource and vlc packages as an example. If camsource is configured to use a given dev/video[n] device with a choice of resolution in the width and height fields of a camsource conf file then if camsource is the first application to access the device captured images are as-expected. However, if an application like vlc is used for the same device (and exited) before starting camsource (e.g. to check the view from the camera before starting camsource) and if the camera supports higher resolutions than used in the camsource configuration what occurs is that camsource will not setup the camera to use the configured resolution and has a broken view of the camera output based on the vlc chosen resolution chopped to the camsource configuration. For example, with camsource configuration set to use 640x480 on a camera that supports 720x480 and vlc is used and exited before camsource is started then the captured camsource images contain two non-continuous partial image blocks with a horizontal border dividing them. I assume either vlc fails to fully reset the device configuration when exiting or camsource fails to initialize the device "from scratch" when starting. The two applications use different video device APIs but the setup and cleanup for the camera in each case is a very limited part of the application's functionality.

Hammer an Envoy service mesh onto a SAP S4/HANA landscape and watch everything explode.

Although CNCF projects are almost exclusively related to Linux containers, some ideas, like wrapping all the services into network proxies to create a distributed data-plane and enable true observability, could perhaps be explored for some kind of backport in complex legacy distributed systems, like... say... S4/HANA?! I don't even know if this is feasible, but trying won't hurt... just stand at a safe distance from the cluster!

"Physical" notifications with Raspberry Pi and addressable LEDs

a project by dannysauer

I'd like a way to have a device on my desk which lights up to indicate that I have something I should be paying attention to. Initially, I'd like this to be for Office365 calendar events and GitHub mentions, but ideally it should support arbitrary messages. The plan is to assign specific colors (ideally "patterns" consisting of a sequence of colors and time) to specific message types. I have a handful of raspberry Pi Zeroes, a couple of OLEDs, a strand of individually-addressable RGB LEDs, a power supply, and some misc electronics (like the 3.3-5v logic level shifter necessary for the 5v LED strand). I'm thinking Python is probably the way to go for the software. I'm hoping OpenSUSE actually works on the Pi zero. :D If not, there's an ESP32 with a built-in display and a few Pi 3s laying around barely used, maybe one of them will work.

libuitest - a generic GUI testing library

a project by dancermak

Testing GUIs is hard: unit tests require a tremendous amount of mocking and often don't capture the exact user input anyway, integration tests on the other hand are difficult to setup as they often require a dedicated infrastructure with virtual machines. libuitest should become something like the image recognition part of openQA: it receives a video or image stream from some source and searches for matches (e.g. button found, sound played). It should also be able to send clicks, key presses, strings, etc. back via an abstract API to a backend.

Port MicroOS to the Gameshell from Clockwork Pi

The goal of the project is to port the openSUSE MicroOS distribution into the device, providing a transactional upgrade process for a canonical IoT architecture. In the process I expect to learn about ARM7, uBoot and some kernel hacking.

Home assistant that doesn't spy on you - developer's edition

a project by DKarakasilis

There are various home assistant solutions out there but all of them transfer your voice to some server for processing. This is a no-go for sane people although the technology is interesting and could be useful. There are various open source tools out there to achieve the same result but there is no turn key open source self hosted solution. The goal of this project is to implement a way to have a home assistant running locally - ideally with one command. The project that is closer to the desired result is Mycroft (https://mycroft.ai/). It is very easy to run the client side components using one docker command but their backend is running remotely. All the tools they use though are open source so it only needs one to do the work and package them in a nice little docker-compose file (https://mycroft-ai.gitbook.io/docs/about-mycroft-ai/faq#can-mycroft-run-completely-offline-can-i-self-host-everything).

Bluetooth audio

a project by mwilck

I'm hearing impaired. Where others have no issues following talks or dicussions, I often fail even grasp the bottom line what it's about. I've got hearing aids, but they help only so much. I also have an add-on device for my hearing aids that acts like a bluetooth headset. Unfortunately, making this thing work under my Linux desktop has been an ongoing, frustrating struggle. On the contrary, it works flawlessly with Android devices of different generations, and even with my lowly Gigaset phone. Actually, the thing works better with older kernels/Linux versions than with current TW. While I've little hope to solve the bluetooth audio issues on Linux for good, I hope at least to be able to understand better what's going wrong, and be able to slow down or even stop the deterioration I've observed lately.
