Heroku is a cloud application platform for Ruby, Rails, Node.js, Java, Python, Scala and Clojure web apps. Everything you need to build, run, and scale:
Dynos: Run virtually any language at any scale.
Database: Enterprise-grade Postgres as a service.
Elements: Marketplace of tools, components and services for your app.
Heroku Connect: Seamlessly integrate and sync with Salesforce.
Heroku provides services and tools to build, run and scale web apps. We enable flow—for developers to focus on the design and craft of compelling apps.
Powerful platform built by developers for developers that let you focus on building great apps.
Build and Run Your Apps, Your Way.
Heroku supports Ruby, Node.js, Python, Java, Go and PHP so you can use the languages you already know to build and deploy apps on Heroku.
Build: Once you push your application source code, Heroku prepares it for execution by retrieving the necessary dependencies specific to the frameworks and languages you use in your app. Heroku supports Ruby, Node.js, Python, Java, Go and PHP by default, but you can also choose another language by using a custom buildback.
Config: Heroku lets you manage environment-specific configurations (such as credentials for backing services) separately from your source code for greater safety and portability. In Heroku, this data can be managed with config vars, which are made available to your running application as simple environment variables.
Run: Sometimes you want to run one-off dynos on your app—run a script in your app's environment, use your app's console, etc. Using heroku run, you can quickly spin up a one-off instance of your app environment to run ad-hoc commands.
Add the Power of Heroku Elements to Your App
Heroku Elements are tools, components and services for adding functionality to your app. Heroku Elements include Add-ons, Buildpacks and Buttons.

FFmpeg is the leading multimedia framework, able to decode, encode, transcode, mux, demux, stream, filter and play pretty much anything that humans and machines have created. It supports the most obscure ancient formats up to the cutting edge. No matter if they were designed by some standards committee, the community or a corporation. It is also highly portable: FFmpeg compiles, runs, and passes our testing infrastructure FATE across Linux, Mac OS X, Microsoft Windows, the BSDs, Solaris, etc. under a wide variety of build environments, machine architectures, and configurations.
It contains libavcodec, libavutil, libavformat, libavfilter, libavdevice, libswscale and libswresample which can be used by applications. As well as ffmpeg, ffplay and ffprobe which can be used by end users for transcoding and playing.
The FFmpeg project tries to provide the best technically possible solution for developers of applications and end users alike. To achieve this we combine the best free software options available. We slightly favor our own code to keep the dependencies on other libs low and to maximize code sharing between parts of FFmpeg. Wherever the question of "best" cannot be answered we support both options so the end user can choose.
Everyone is welcome in FFmpeg and all contributions are welcome too. We are happy to receive patches, pull requests, bug reports, donations or any other type of contribution.

Windows Terminal is a new, modern, feature-rich, productive terminal application for command-line users. It includes many of the features most frequently requested by the Windows command-line community including support for tabs, rich text, globalization, configurability, theming & styling, and more.
The Terminal will also need to meet our goals and measures to ensure it remains fast, and efficient, and doesn't consume vast amounts of memory or power.
The Windows console host, conhost.exe, is Windows' original command-line user experience. It implements Windows' command-line infrastructure, and is responsible for hosting the Windows Console API, input engine, rendering engine, and user preferences. The console host code in this repository is the actual source from which the conhost.exe in Windows itself is built.
Console's primary goal is to remain backwards-compatible with existing console subsystem applications.
Since assuming ownership of the Windows command-line in 2014, the team has added several new features to the Console, including window transparency, line-based selection, support for ANSI / Virtual Terminal sequences, 24-bit color, a Pseudoconsole ("ConPTY"), and more.
However, because the Console's primary goal is to maintain backward compatibility, we've been unable to add many of the features the community has been asking for, and which we've been wanting to add for the last several years--like tabs!
These limitations led us to create the new Windows Terminal.
While overhauling the Console, we've modernized its codebase considerably. We've cleanly separated logical entities into modules and classes, introduced some key extensibility points, replaced several old, home-grown collections and containers with safer, more efficient STL containers, and made the code simpler and safer by using Microsoft's WIL header library.

This application aims to provide a Fluent Design System based replacement for the old, built-in, Metro Design based Audio/Airplane mode/Brightness flyouts present in Windows (which haven't been updated since Windows 8 LOL) which are shown while pressing the media or volume keys or even the brightness keys (may be absent on Desktop PCs) or when airplane/flight mode is toggled.
Features • Fluent UI (similar to Windows 10X). • Supports Light, Dark & High contrast themes. • Media session controls have additional options such as Shuffle, Repeat, Stop and Timeline Info. • Redesigned audio and brightness flyouts along with additional flyouts for Airplane mode, Lock keys and Insert/Overtype. • Each module can be disabled individually. • Flyout's TopBar can be pinned, unpinned or hidden. • Flyout is Draggable and autosaves the position. It also has feature for default position. (Check out the settings) • Smooth Animations & Transitions. • Opacity of the background of flyouts can be changed. • Timeout of flyouts can be changed.
Note: The built-in flyout will not be permanently affected. It will be hidden temporarily while this application is running. So, no reason to fear breaking your system. For more information on how to recover the original flyouts, check out this How To page.
Users are provided the freedom to choose between the Windows built-in flyouts or modern flyouts from ModernFlyouts or neither of them.
It is impossible to have a flyout for the keyboard backlight brightness or for the function (Fn) key because they are not passed as keys but as hardware signals (which the OEMs decide). Any OS can receive those signals if they have the required driver.
This project has its roots in AudioFlyout by @ADeltaX with additional implementations for "Airplane mode", "Brightness" and "LockKeys" (includes Insert key, Caps, Num & Scroll lock keys) flyouts. This project stands as a complete replacement for the built-in one.

Windows Subsystem for Linux (WSL) is a feature of Windows that allows developers to run a Linux environment without the need for a separate virtual machine or dual booting. There are two versions of WSL: WSL 1 and WSL 2. WSL 1 was first released on August 2, 2016, and acts as a compatibility layer for running Linux binary executables (in ELF format) by implementing Linux system calls on the Windows kernel. It is available on Windows 10, Windows 10 LTSB/LTSC, Windows 11, Windows Server 2016, Windows Server 2019 and Windows Server 2022.
In May 2019, WSL 2 was announced, introducing important changes such as a real Linux kernel, through a subset of Hyper-V features. WSL 2 differs from WSL 1 in that WSL 2 runs inside a managed virtual machine that implements the full Linux kernel. As a result, WSL 2 is compatible with more Linux binaries than WSL 1, as not all syscalls were implemented in WSL 1. Since June 2019, WSL 2 is available to Windows 10 customers through the Windows Insider program, including the Home edition. WSL is not available to all Windows 10 users by default. It can be installed either by joining the Windows Insider program or manual install.

Adobe Photoshop is a raster graphics editor developed and published by Adobe Inc. for Windows and macOS. It was originally created in 1988 by Thomas and John Knoll.
Since then, the software has become the industry standard not only in raster graphics editing, but in digital art as a whole. The software's name is often colloquially used as a verb (e.g. "to photoshop an image", "photoshopping", and "photoshop contest") although Adobe discourages such use. Photoshop can edit and compose raster images in multiple layers and supports masks, alpha compositing and several color models including RGB, CMYK, CIELAB, spot color, and duotone. Photoshop uses its own PSD and PSB file formats to support these features. In addition to raster graphics, Photoshop has limited abilities to edit or render text and vector graphics (especially through clipping path for the latter), as well as 3D graphics and video. Its feature set can be expanded by plug-ins; programs developed and distributed independently of Photoshop that run inside it and offer new or enhanced features.
Photoshop's naming scheme was initially based on version numbers. However, in October 2002 (following the introduction of Creative Suite branding), each new version of Photoshop was designated with "CS" plus a number; e.g., the eighth major version of Photoshop was Photoshop CS and the ninth was Photoshop CS2. Photoshop CS3 through CS6 were also distributed in two different editions: Standard and Extended. With the introduction of the Creative Cloud branding in June 2013 (and in turn, the change of the "CS" suffix to "CC"), Photoshop's licensing scheme was changed to that of software as a service subscription model. Historically, Photoshop was bundled with additional software such as Adobe ImageReady, Adobe Fireworks, Adobe Bridge, Adobe Device Central and Adobe Camera RAW.
