UI Testing Qt/QML/QtQuick Apps with Spix

A UI testing and automation library for Qt/QML/QtQuick apps. You can use it to remote control and test your QtQuick based application. I started working on this mid-2019 and am maintaining the project ever since.

It has a bunch of nice features like using RPC calls to control the app, automatically finding buttons on screen and some other stuff… Check out its github readme for more infos:

SerialMailer, I believe, is the best mass email software for macOS. It helps you protect your recipients privacy by not relying on cloud-hosted, external services to store your data, but rather sending and managing group mails and newsletters directly from your computer. Just like a normal email client! Personalized newsletters and bulk email campaigns can easily be created on your mac and sent out through a normal email account, but with automatically personalized messages and attachments.

Especially when sending mails with privacy relevant content (grades from schools, medical or financial data), having a tool that runs directly on your macOS computer can make things a lot easier.

FontConverter: Converting PostScript fonts to OpenType

FontConverter is a great tool for anyone who wants to convert their old PostScript Type 1 fonts into the OpenType format. This has become more and more important, since the old PostScript formats are no longer supported in a lot of modern Apps, or even in macOS. With FontConverter you can take your collection of PostScript fonts and make it usable again with those modern Apps.

Old Stuff
