Just a very quick announcement. I created two new packages for Fedora:
rtags- A source code indexer for the C language family. I use it together with Emacs, to get IDE-like functionality. The package contains systemd (user) unit files that should socket-activate the rtags daemon on demand. Check via
systemctl status --user rtags.socket.
renderdoc- a stand-alone graphics debugger; it is a wonderful tool to help developers when doing anything 3D (OpenGL, Vulkan) related.
Thanks goes to @baldurk for a patch to install renderdoc's library into a private location.
Install on Fedora 26, 27 and rawhide via
dnf install rtags renderdoc.
I also created my first flatpak:
NixView- as the name suggests a viewer for the free and open NIX scientific data format. It is available via flathub. Open data formats are the necessary basis for data sharing, which is one of the most important problems in science that is still not solved properly.
All this was done during the workshop & hackathon on open data formats and data sharing in neuroscience (in Japan!). Thanks goes to the German Neuroinformatics Node and Red Hat (my employer), that made it possible for me to attend it; and also to the Japanese Node for organizing it. I had a great and productive time in Japan.
