awesome! i'm using cmus at the moment but was thinking of just using mpg123 as all of my folders are formatted in artist/album/song so the directory is very easy to navigate to play songs without an ncurses client. i also make a bit of music and was wondering if you have experimentedd with sox in editing and/or processing the audio?

Damn, I mixed my bookmarks up.
I intended to link to mblaze, another project of Leah's.

Ah, that's what I though :) I use mblaze for cleaning my inbox, but still use mutt to manage and read mails, this is much more convenient. Threading is a bit complex to do, for example to bring the full thread back in your inbox when you receive a new message. Here's my digthread script for it for example:

Code:
#!/bin/sh

# maildir location
md=$HOME/.cache/mail

# Bring back to inbox all mails in a given thread (except sent ones)
box=${1:-inbox}
mlist $md/$box \
                | mthread -v $(mdirs $md|sed 's/^/-S /') 2>/dev/null \
                | grep -vE "$md/($box|sent)/" \
                | grep -vE '^\s*<'
                | mrefile $md/$box

A bit complex, but it works :) And at list, you can do it. It is much more simple to do with mu though:

Code:
mu find -t m:/inbox

My main issue with "mu" is its query system which I could never get right on first try. Plus the escaping is odd… I prefer mblaze regarding that, and I'm slowly switching away from mu. All that remains is my "mailsearch" script, which symlinks the result of the search is a directory, so you can browse the result within mutt. I couldn't replicate this with mblaze yet, as it usually works in a pipeline, and require different tools/mutliple piping to find your result.

I don't have much XP with making music. I mostly use sox to convert file formats and play songs. You might be interrested in ncmixer though :)

Then, please, also add it webp format. That would be nice, considering the performances of that format.

I'm much more comfortable with Linux and tools now, so I guess I'll update my list.
os: Arch Linux
wm: XFCE on desktop, dwm on laptop
music and video: mpv
file manager: coreutils + thunar (if i need drag+drop)
irc client: irssi
terminal emulator: xfce4-terminal/alacritty
shell: zsh
editor: emacs (converted from vim (sorry))
pdf viewer: zathura
screenshot: xfce-screenshot/scrot
image viewer: sxiv
mail client: thunderbird
compositor: picom
web: ungoogled-chromium

Overall, emacs has replaced a lot of my programming tools. In a way, this is nice because I get a more cohesive experience, but I do recognize the fact that it is less UNIX-y.

sxiv uses Imlib2, so that's probably where you'll need to add support for webp.
