Reddit: Open Source Raster Mosaics Software

4 hours 36 min ago

Is there any open source software that can stitch jpeg files together to create a mosaic dataset that runs well on Ubuntu 18.04? I have 100s -> 1000s of photos (taken with DJI Inspire) in each dataset that are geo-referenced with lat. and long. Rasterio came up but I don't know how well that works. Does anyone have experience with Rasterio or anything else that will create the datasets. Any help is appreciated, Thanks!

Reddit: Music player with iTunes search

5 hours 4 min ago

In iTunes, if you type in something, it assumes you are searching for a song and opened some sort of "quick search." I believe most Linux file managers also do this, just type in a string, and a little entry will appear to show you what you are searching.

VLC almost has this, but the space key is ignored, and only the first word is registered. For example, if I wanted to highlight a song in my playlist called "Enter The Hall", only "Enter" is submitted, and "Enter Sandman" is highlighted instead.

If anyone knows about any music player that has this, please let me know, I've tried a handful, but haven't found anything yet.

How to enable developer mode on a Chrome OS tablet (and install Linux using Crouton)

Google’s Chrome OS is designed to be a relatively secure, simple operating system that’s easy to use and hard to mess up. But you can run stable channel, beta channel, or dev channel software on any Chromebook depending on whether you want the safest experience or buggy, bleeding-edge features. There’s also an option called Developer Mode, which is different from the dev channel. It allows you to access files and settings that are normally protected and use a command shell to explore the system. It’s designed for developers and advanced users only, since it increases the chances that you’ll break your Chromebook. But enabling Developer Mode is also a prerequisite for using one my favorite Chrome OS hacks: a tool called Crouton that allows you to install Ubuntu or another GNU/Linux distribution and run it alongside Chrome OS.

Red Hat News and Press

Belated Thoughts on van Rossum’s Departure

  • Is BDFL a death sentence?
    A few days ago, Guido van Rossum, creator of the Python programming language and Benevolent Dictator For Life (BDFL) of the project, announced his intention to step away. Below is a portion of his message, although the entire email is not terribly long and worth taking the time to read if you’re interested in the circumstances leading to van Rossum’s departure.
  • Thoughts on Guido retiring as BDFL of Python
    I've been programming in Python for almost 20 years on a myriad of open source projects, tools for personal use, and work. I helped out with several PyCon US conferences and attended several others. I met a lot of amazing people who have influenced me as a person and as a programmer. I started PyVideo in March 2012. At a PyCon US after that (maybe 2015?), I found myself in an elevator with Guido and somehow we got to talking about PyVideo and he asked point-blank, "Why work on that?" I tried to explain what I was trying to do with it: create an index of conference videos across video sites, improve the meta-data, transcriptions, subtitles, feeds, etc. I remember he patiently listened to me and then said something along the lines of how it was a good thing to work on. I really appreciated that moment of validation. I think about it periodically. It was one of the reasons Sheila and I worked hard to transition PyVideo to a new group after we were burned out.
