app localization visualizer

an invention by sbrabec

Tracking and fixing translations in modern applications is a surprisingly complicated task. Visible strings often come from several projects, and strings can be processed by a complex formating.

Improve posixovl to support fully featured POSIX file system on top of any limited file system (e. g. vfat)

a project by sbrabec

posixovl is a FUSE based successor of the old UMSDOS. It has a goal to provide POSIX file system functionality on top of vfat. Its code is nice and well written, but its feature set is not complete yet. It just supports: POSIX modes and user/group, hard and symbolic links, device nodes and named pipes.

a project by sbrabec

Bring /media directory back

a project by sbrabec

/media was a very comfortable thing standardized by FHS. After introduction of desktop based udisks mounts, the directory became empty. Paths like /run/media/me/directory or /run/user/1000/gvfs are used nowadays. When used from a terminal, it is very uncomfortable. As mounts are private to users, the old style of /media use cannot be returned back. But with a kernel namespaces feature, it is possible to make private mounts, and each user can see a different contents of /media.
