Software recommendation - Desktop Customization & Workflow
pranomostro
I half expect to do another search directly after posting this thread and finding an equivalent, but so far there has been nothing, so I'll just jump into the cold water and create this software recommendation thread.

It's simple – either you are so stoked about something you have been using lately that you can't stop yourself from writing a reply here, or you are desperately searching for a utility and want some community input.

I'll start with such a request: does anybody know a good, small command line flashcard utility? I know about anki and mnemosyne, but they are huge and not modular enough.

I've been using and finding useful clipboard managers these days.
Parcellite and Clipit are both great solutions to this and have approximately the same keybind ctrl-alt-h.

It's my recommendation lately as I've been working in an IDE that doesn't provide an internal clipboard such as with vim.

At the moment I'm looking for a lightweight and complete markdown editor with an export to PDF feature. So far I'm using two things, one of them is an alias on the command line:
Code:
markdown () {
    markdown_py $1 | lynx -stdin
}
However markdown_py doesn't support all markdown, especially tables. And on the other side I've been trying a browser addon for firefox: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox...src=search

GNU Emacs with pandoc-mode should be sufficient (assuming that you already have an Emacs on your machine, else "lightweight" would be a retarded word for it).

pandoc itself could be an alternative otherwise :)
