:: GNU/Linux (Rome & Antium) ::
This page currently hosts my Arch rice bundle. I will be heavily updating this
project and creating an ISO or VM image soon so the distro can be downloaded and
installed with the exact specifications I show in the following images.
If you want to manually rice, the dotfiles and scripts for my setup are on my github.
This page will be get changed significantly when I finish augmenting Rome/Antium and
finalize the disk image for download, but until then, these are some personal notes
and features I want to add:
• Integrate mons for display switching.
• Replace the Gnome display manager with a reskined version of lightdm.
• Mod ncmpcpp with Lyvi for lyrics, and integrate Mopidy with bum.
• Integrate wpgtk into Rome (but not Antium).
• Possibly add this to the bash shell initialization (and make your own for zsh).
• Possibly add vimty for vim (and nano/micro usage).
• Possible app steal?
• Mod and integrate some of this and that's functionality into Antium.
• Mod and add this todo to the availible scripts.
• Fix problems with my bitmap fonts.
General Ricing Tools I Use.
• Best wallpaper scrapper in terms of functionality - https://nik.bot.nu/
• Unixporn's primary listings - https://www.reddit.com/r/unixporn/
• Discord ricing - https://betterdiscord.net/
• Themes and plugins for BetterDiscord - https://betterdocs.net/:: Phone Ricing ::
Android is incredibly easy to work on. There are all kinds of apps you can get that
will do half the ricing for you. As seen in the screens below, I am using the Nova
Launcher with Light Void icons. I have stuck very close to the design principles I
outline in snUX, and I am using the first of the two mentioned color schemes on that
page. The reason for doing this is three-fold: the minimal and text-less screen makes
visually parsing the screen incredibly easy, the white-on-black scheme means the
content will be visible under any lighting condition or damage to the screen, and
the majoritarily black backing reduces power consumption on OLED screens.
The screenshots on the right-hand side below are of the same system but with a pixel
filter; the significance of this being that the filter turns off half the pixels of
the screen which significantly reduces battery consumption but also demonstrates
that this color scheme still grants high visibility even when half the screen's
pixels are disabled.
:: Windows (WINUX) ::
This page used to host SNUX, which was a Windows7 mod package and system overhaul.
The project outline is still shown below, but I've moved on to BSPWM ricing on Arch.
Some day I might create a disk image of these mods on top of an otherwise vanilla
Win7-SP1 and release that image here. The reason I may still pursue Win7 ricing is
because despite obvious counters, if properly augmented, Windows has potential for
becoming a great OS.
SNUX was a Winux overhaul, meaning a Windows7 rice & mod package designed to make
Windows look and function more like Linux.
