I agree, I've personally used MatDeck and find it to be full of surprise. It's GUI Designer is really useful but its not that aesthetically pleasing especially compared to VisualTK but it does work much faster and has more to offer. Pygubu is a great GUI Designer but its just a GUI Designer and it doesn't offer any other features like the one I use(https://...
For anyone looking for the same kind of software - ended up using Allway Sync.
Works for syncing both from and to external drive.
Detects differences and added/updated/deleted files.
free version is enough for my needs
Wouldn't call it very user-friendly or one-time-settupable
All in all it works and does exactly ...
PYGUBU and Python GUI Builder are good but they are old and outdated. Try out MD Python(https://labdeck.com/python/), its got a GUI Designer that uses drag and drop. It's similar to VisualTK but it has got a lot more elements and works a lot better and more consistently. I find that VisualTk sometimes doesn't actually show my code.
MD Python is a fully-...
I created an online tool recently that you can use for merging PDFs:
You can also reorder, rotate, and remove the pages before merging.
It's open source, here's the link to the code: https://github.com/soadzoor/PDF-merger
You can use Lightshot to select a portion of the screen, annotate it, then save to clipboard or disk. However, it doesn't have the "floating" functionality you described, but the output can be copied to a Paint window or similar.
You can use Notepad3 for that purpose. It's a very lightweigth Notepad clone that, while focused on being developer-oriented, it also has a simple and minimalist interface. Most developer features can also be disabled so you can end up with a simple plain text editor and not much more.
About your feature requests:
Preferably one that is open source
I can highly recommend JSONedit. It serves as both a JSON viewer and JSON editor.
It features text, tree, and list views.
It is portable software and is free of cost (freeware). It even features a dark theme/mode.
The only issue I've had with it is that it crashes for me when I open very large (hundreds of MBs) JSON files. I'm hoping the author has time ...
CudaText editor, FOSS and cross-platform. It has Python API so making the small plugin for your request is not hard.
You ask to paste some text via a hotkey - OK, CudaText plugin can give command, 3 commands for 3 items. So calling "Plugins / YourCommand / Copy 1st" will copy to clipboard the text (FAQ answer #1). And you then paste it into another ...
CopyQ is an open-source, gratis, cross-platform tool that can do exactly what you want (along with many other things!).
You can store pre-defined clips in lists, and even create tabs of lists. You can then assign shortcut keys to paste (insert) items from those lists.
CopyQ can have a bit of a learning curve, but its power is extensive due to its support ...
You could use robocopy. It's already on board, is very customizable (w.r.t. to ecxlusion criteria etc). And does a pretty awesome job.
However, otoh you would still be well advised to consider investing a minimal amount of time in really putting your jupyter file in a subfolder. Just makes life far easier. I'd think, moving the files in the subfolder now ...
If you are on Windows 10, you can download and install Microsoft
PowerToys which is an open source program from Microsoft which contains many useful utilities. One of those utilities is a batch image resizer.
After you install PowerToys, you can right click a selection of files and click "Resize pictures" from the context menu to open the Resizer ...
Would suggest using visipics
Is completely free, lets you preview and compare duplicates, and can delete multiple duplicates simultaneously letting you select either the images to be deleted or the one that should stay, whatever you prefer. Should run on Windows 10. When run on a folder it even groups the files into similar pictures, with a customizable ...
The chmcmd executable that is distributed along Freepascal (https://www.freepascal.org/) is a command line alternative that can create chm files from the same sources supported by the HTML Help Workshop.
It is GPL licensed but this should not be a problem since no direct linking will be done with the software and instead just running it from the command line....
A couple of others to check out:
It is opensource.
Can be configured to use just date and duration instead of start/stop times.
Times can be entered manually, or use in-built timer if you prefer.
For each activity entered, you can add description, tags, etc.
Has a dashboard and some reports.
Ability to merge times is not available. But you can pay ...
Based on your requirements and the output that you wish to attain, I think what you need is software that can delete pages instead of splitting them. When you split PDF pages, you actually create two or more kinds of PDF as the effect of the split. When you delete pages, you remove the unwanted pages from the PDF document and save the remaining pages as a ...
There would be three stages for an app like this: Image capture, Image processing, and OCR. You can use the LEADTOOLS libraries for any or all of these. They have both screen capture and scanning libraries; their image processing libraries can adjust images for skew, noise, low contrast, and low resolution; and their OCR can handle many different languages ...
Python can load and parse all of the file types that you mention either with the system libraries or with pip installable ones such as Beautiful Soup or requests_html.
In just about all cases you end up with a tree structure and there is a library available called treecompare that looks to do exactly the sort of thing that you are looking for.
The only thing ...
Yes! I can highly recommend NAPS2. It is completely open-source, and is available here:
In my experience, NAPS2 works very well. The quality of the output is excellent. The OCR works great too.
It works wonderfully with ...
It's maybe a bit dated by now, but I have been using TextPad for many years now. One of the features they advertise is being able to edit "huge" files.
It has all the useful features you'd expect from a text editor, and then some. I've been trying to find a better one without success so far.
It is not free (but free to download and evaluate), but ...
CudaText editor. It's FOSS. Regarding your wishes:
that is open source: check
can handle large files: check, just use option "ui_max_size_open" to change the limit
and does not use Java or Cygwin: check
features like project management: check
git integration: missed
syntax highlighting or regular expressions: check
