<h2>My Projects</h2>

<p>Various things that I'm working on:</p>

<ul>
  <li>I'm a contributor to <a href="http://openmw.org/">the OpenMW project</a>, which is creating a GPL3-licensed 3D game engine that's compatible with The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind from scratch.</li>
  <li><a href="https://modding-openmw.com/">Modding-OpenMW.com</a> started as a small site for my personal modded Morrowind+OpenMW setup, and is now a reasonably large catalogue of mods and information about their usability with the OpenMW engine.  Source code is viewable <a href="https://git.modding-openmw.com/Modding-OpenMW.com/momw">here</a>, subscribe to the mailing list <a href="https://lists.sr.ht/~hristoast/modding-openmw.com">here</a>.</li>
  <li><a href="https://gitlab.com/modding-openmw">The Modding-OpenMW Gitlab org</a> is a hub for OpenMW mods I've created as well as resources and tools for creating and self-hosting your own mods.</li>
  <li><a href="https://wem.hristos.co/">WEM</a> is a command-line tool for managing wine environments. Inspired by <a href="https://lutris.net/">Lutris</a> and <a href="http://rbenv.org/">rbenv</a>.</li>
  <li><a href="https://mousikofidi.info/">MousikóFídi</a> is something I wrote as an alternative to <a href="http://ampache.org/">Ampache</a>.  I wanted something that didn't need a database, had a small number of dependencies and only used vanilla javascript.  Subscribe to the mailing list <a href="https://lists.sr.ht/~hristoast/mousikofidi">here</a>.</li>
  <li>This website is an ongoing project, check out the source code at <a href="https://git.sr.ht/~hristoast/hristoast">Sourcehut</a>!</li>
  <li><a href="https://git.sr.ht/~hristoast/mpdinfo">mpd-info</a> is a very small <a href="https://palletsprojects.com/p/flask/">Flask</a> application that's designed to serve up bits of track info over HTTP, in json format.  This is what powers the song info on <a href="/radio/">my radio page</a>!</li>
  <li><a href="https://blackholegate.com/">Black Hole Gate: Dimension Warrior</a> is a video game written with Godot Engine.  It's in an early pre-alpha state; design-wise it was intended to be a clone of the NES Dragon Warrior games. Development is currently on hiatus.</li>
  <li><a href="/xbps">xbps.hristos.net</a> is where I host packages for Void Linux.</li>

<h2>Things I Like</h2>

<p>Also in no particular order:</p>

<ul>
  <li><a href="https://sr.ht/">Sourcehut</a> is an excellent code forge that doesn't try to lock you in with "features", which only serve to abstract useful things that are already built into git itself.</li>
  <li><a href="https://www.gnu.org/software/emacs/">GNU Emacs</a> is my text editor of choice for various reasons. <code>M-x tetris RET</code>!</li>
  <li><a href="https://magit.vc/">Magit</a> is one of the most important tools in my workflow. It's my favorite git client.</li>
  <li><a href="https://misterfpga.org/">The MiSTer FPGA</a> project is one of my favorite classic gaming efforts. Accuracy-focused, FPGA-based emulation on the DE-10 Nano board.</li>
  <li><a href="https://godotengine.org/">Godot Engine</a> is an amazing free software game engine. My preferred tool for creating games.</li>
  <li><a href="https://www.gdquest.com/">GDQuest</a> helped me learn how to make games with Godot, I love the work they do and recommend it to anybody interested in the topic.</li>
  <li><a href="https://sr.ht/~cadence/tube/">The /tube project</a> is an awesome front-end to YouTube that I vastly prefer over the stock UI/UX by ABC/Google.</li>
  <li><a href="http://www.romhacking.net/">ROMhacking.net</a> is a huge catalogue of patches and fan translations for games for various consoles, as well as a forum where projects are blossomed and discussed.</li>

  <li><a href="https://voidlinux.org/">Void Linux</a> is my Linux distribution of choice (since 2015). From the excellent XBPS package manager, to providing an ecosystem for those that want to avoid a certain scope-less Cthulu of an "init system" that I will not name here, to providing support for musl libc, there's lots to love in Void for those that are experienced with UNIX systems.</li>
  <li>For over 20 years and counting, <a href="http://jiihootabs.com/">JiiHoo Tabs</a> has been my go-to place for accurate, well-made NOFX tabs for guitar and bass. He does a few other bands - even trumpet parts too!</li>
