Here are a few tools I have been using this year. I absolutely love these open source apps and I think you might too.
Amberol is a music player with no delusions of grandeur. If you just want to play music available on your local system then Amberol is the music player you are looking for.
BeeRef lets you quickly arrange your reference images and view them while you create. Its minimal interface is designed not to get in the way of your creative process.
A tool much like Glade to design GTK3 and 4 interfaces. Used in concert with Gnome Builder you can build Linux applications quickly.
Festival is a music player for local album collections.
Flet enables developers to easily build real-time web, mobile and desktop apps in Python. No frontend experience required.
Imagine with AI easily. Requires API keys from various AI imaging projects.
A simple and elegant open-source markdown editor that focused on speed and usability.
A powerful note-taking app that helps you organize + take notes without restrictions.
OCR powered screen-capture tool to capture information instead of images. For Linux, macOS and Windows.
Upscaler is a GTK4+libadwaita application that allows you to upscale and enhance a given image. It is a front-end for Real-ESRGAN ncnn Vulkan.
