GUI vs. Command Line, similiarity in tools

Filed under
Software

My first long-term job was Unix programming.

Thats way I prefer the command line tools.

I think GUI does not have real performance in tasks of programmer, also GUI skills can not be reused when you need automate your task you done before by clicking.

If you typed instead, you can put your typing in the script and make the script working for any count of times.

However I found in my practice some cases when GUI was better than command line for development.

1) Development of GUI
I have experience of the development of tools for the internet trading, that were mouse based and highly interactive. And visual tools for visual development were really much progress in comparison to writing code for forms definition. In such RAD tools for the GUI, GUI interface and the visual development environment is the must.

GNOME Recipes and Outreachy

  • Recipes for you and me
    Since I’ve last written about recipes, we’ve started to figure out what we can achieve in time for GNOME 3.24, with an eye towards delivering a useful application. The result is this plan, which should be doable.
  • Outreachy (GNOME)-W5&W6
    My plan was altered in this two-week, because the strings of GNOME 3.24 have not frozen yet and the maintainers of Chinese localization group told me the Extra GNOME Applications are more necessary to be translated than documents, so I began to translate the Extra GNOME Applications (stable) during this period.
  • [Older] Outreachy (GNOME)-W3&W4
    During this period, I finished the UI translation of GNOME 3.22, I’m waiting to reviewed and committed now, and I met some troubles and resolved them these days.

Home Recording with Ubuntu Studio Part One: Gearing Up

Twenty years ago, the cost of building a studio for the creation of electronic music was pricey, to say the least. The cost of a computer that was suitable for multimedia production could cost the average musician between $1,000 and $2,000. Add in the cost of recording software, additional instruments and equipment, and one could easily spend between $5,000 and $10,000 just to get started. But nowadays, you do not have to break the bank to start making music at home. The price of personal computers has dropped substantially over the past two decades. At the time of this writing, it is possible to get a notebook PC that’s suitable for audio production for around $500. Other pieces of equipment have also dropped in price, making it possible to build a functional recording studio for around $1,000. (Read the rest)
