Decent Software

There is a lot of shitty software out there but there are some exceptions. In my experience, the following is not half bad. As a rule, all software on the following list is Free Software.


Restic is a backup program written in Go, offering incremental encrypted backups.


Micro is an intuitive text editor for the terminal that supports standard Common keybindings like Ctrl-c to copy, Ctrl-v to paste, Ctrl-s to save, etc. It is written in Go and aims to be an alternative to nano for command-line beginners that don't quite feel ready to learn how to use vi yet.


Wireguard is an extremely well-engineered VPN software and protocol. It is built around the insight that simplicity is a key requirement to minimize attack surface. This garden used to use Wireguard in its plumbing to attach to the Internet but can do without these days.
