There are multiple companies that rent out access to a Mac in the cloud. I used one of them for a few months when I had to port an Android app to iOS, which needs a Mac to compile. If you only need your Mac for a few hours per year, this is probably the cheapest option. Resetting "your" mac is just a question of a few minutes to get a new, freshly ...

Is it possible (and legal) to buy a macOS license to have it as a VM on my Linux machine? No - at least not according to Apple's software license agreement for MacOS. The license agreement for MacOS Big Sur (others are similar) explicitly says (emphasis mine): you are granted a limited, non-transferable, non-exclusive license: [...] (iii) to install, use ...

As others have said, the only way to legally virtualize Mac OS X (according toApple's EULA) is on Apple hardware. So the purchase you need to make isn't a software purchase, it's a hardware purchase: you need to buy a Mac. With Intel (x86) Apple hardware, there's three ways you can do this: 1. Use VMWare ESXi as the host OS ESXi is VMware's professional ...

I'm currently using Ubuntu, but there are still some apps I wanted to use on macOS. I found macOS-Simple-KVM. However, there will be a bit of tweaking you'll need to do before being able to use the App Store on it, and it's limited to macOS Catalina. For Windows, I just use VirtualBox and my purchased license of Windows 10. Edit: My apologies. I just ...

You can legitimately download and run VM specifically for testing purposes (which is exactly what you are doing) directly from Microsoft at a price of $0.00. You just need to know where to go. It's currently on Microsoft Edge Developer site, but it periodically moves location for one reason or another. There are several OS & browser combinations ...

Try using version-control software, such as Git. You can then edit the file however you want, such as with your favorite text editor, and you'll be able to look at previous versions and the differences between versions.

Are you looking for a tool to run regular expression searches or to help develop & test the regex? Cross Platform Regular Expression Tool I am a big fan of Robert Kern's python grin tool/library. Installation Once you have python installed on your system just run: pip install grin3 or for python 2 installations leave out the 3 What it does Cross ...

Recently I came across "Dolt - It's git for data". Maybe it's worth a look. It's not CSV based (but similar to mySQL), and not WYSIWYG. Dolt does not track schema changes, however (= columns added, removed, renamed...) But it does track the data changes you describe, and enables you to do diffs, snapshots, rollbacks, time-travel.

It's possible that OBS Studio (for Mac, Windows, Linux) would perform the requirements you list. The video quality isn't going to be higher than screen resolution unless you upscale it in post-processing, but the recording can be at a higher finished resolution (or lower) based on your configuration prior to recording start. Audio recording is a feature ...

The only browser with native support for Regex searches I was able to find is Konqueror. It's available onley for Linux systems. You should rely on a plugin, for example: Chrome Regex Search extension for Google Chrome found nothing for Safari Regex Search add-on for Mozilla Firefox You can use RegEx search in Google Chrome DevTools, typing Ctrl + Shift + ...

The Desktop Wiki zim is written in python and fulfills all your requirements. You can write text quickly with a minimal markup and use LaTeX for Formulas. Have a look at the nice screenshots on https://zim-wiki.org/screenshots.html

Macs come with a graph package called Grapher. It usually resides in the Utilities Folder. Its a pretty bare bones app and will plot equations or points. You may want to play with this app and see if it meets your needs. To find it go to a Finder window and click on Go in the menu bar. That opens another menu and at the bottom of that list is Utilities. ...

You can do the job on just about any platform using python and opencv - python should already be installed on your mac. A very nice write up on how to do this is available in the pyimagesearch blog here. The linked example, which includes quite a bit of additional code & comments to show the intermediate steps, uses just 75 lines of python to: Load the ...

On my side I always use this Chrome App. It is very simple and light and it support the few things I need (multiline, highlight and replace). The big plus against the online tool regex101 is that once installed on your chrome browser, you can use it without need of Internet connections. When using an IDE, you cal also install plugins into: IntelliJ IDEA: ...

As a more computer-oriented solution for folks looking to do something similar on their computer, OBS has a "replay recording" feature where you can configure a set amount of memory for OBS to just recording to in the background. Then whevever you click the "save replay" button, OBS will save the contents of this memory buffer (the clip ...

If you are already working with code then I recommend Visual Studio Code since it has an excellent built-in diff tool. Visual Studio Code is a pretty good code editor in its own right so I think it's a good app to have installed along with your other development tools. I use it to work on miscellaneous projects outside of my main IDE. To use its compare ...

I found Graphviz to be a wonderful solution, especially since you don't have to worry about where things are (though you can), you just worry about the information that it conveys. The only catch is it's not very easy to install on windows (and to be honest GVEdit isn't that great). The best workaround is to use a different tool compatible with the "dot&...

I figure I should add one more option that isn't necessarily a tool or feature, but more of a trick to compare small PDF's (generally single pages like resumes). If your operating system makes windows semitransparent when dragging them around, you can open both PDF's in your PDF-viewing application, and then drag one PDF window over the other without letting ...

This is an old question, and the accepted answer is still a good one. But there are more options now. Among these is CotEditor, which meets OP's requirements (all of them!) but also exceeds them for users who would like to personalize their editing environment just a little more than TextEdit allows for. That's the editor as set up according to OP's wishes, ...

The recomendations made by @cris (accepted Answer) are great. Especially Teamviewer is great for use in non-commercial mode. If you use it for commercial tech support it can feel a bit pricey (this depends on where you live). We´ve used Logmein and it's also great but as far as I can tell you do need to use a paid subcription. I would also suggest SupRemo ...
