Fork me on GitHub

Is anyone aware of any programme that, when run, will give me a single line command prompt, running my preferred shell, into which I can enter a command, which then quits as soon as the command is run. Essentially I'm talking about an app launcher.


Like osx launcher?


In which os? If Linux there's dmenu


@U7S5E44DB Simpler than osx launcher. On Linux: I use dmenu currently with dwm. It works great, but sometimes I want to run a command that takes a path, and currently I have to type out that path without making any mistakes and I can't just hit tab to autocomplete, so I end up running a terminal just for that one command

Rofi maybe


I forgot I used that over dmenu when I was on Linux

solf10:05:18 seems like it might have what you want


@U7S5E44DB Thanks, I'll give it a go


The author of that issue referenced gmrun, which is much closer to what I was after, and the author of gmrun has written a bunch of other useful tools as well:


Happy you found what you were looking for


I'll keep that in mind for when I switch back to Linux


thanks for getting me there 🙂


I like to make some analytics on our crypto coin. The data input is from an external api (polygonscan). My first idea is that I make a datomic cloud app and put everything into datomic. What are the kinds of things and technology choices you would think about?

Ingestion rate Query rate Nature of the data (time series? Something else) Are updates chronologically ordered? Can you get an update regarding an event in the past?

I would consider a time series database such as druid or clickhouse besides datomic if the data is a time series and guaranteed to have strict ordering


Nice i check. The kinds of questions i would like to answer would be for example 'for the addresses with the most token income, to which other addresses do they transfer?'

How often to you want to ask those questions? How fresh does the data need to be?


Only on the order of daily, freshness hourly is enough
