The idea is simple, you think of some tiny, one trick pony application or script that you'd like to have for whatever reason. You post your request here, and hopefully someone makes it.

The wiki text is not included, since parsing it out of the database dump would be a huge pain, and I'm not going to put the dump online since it contains the email addresses of people who registered on the site. It's 28 MB.

Humble Request
Problem: I need to crop 1,2, or 3, occasionally 4 or more images out of one large image. This can be done in paint with careful use of 'Save As...' but I want to process about 50x20 images a day. Not feasible by hand.
http://www.fmwconcepts.com/imagemagick/multicrop/ works on UNIX machines but I can't find any windows alternative outside of photoshop's 'Crop and Straighten Photos' which would also be super manual.
Description and requirements: Windows executable or Javascript library that will accept a directory or single image file as an argument and process into however many images it can find. The images that I am working with don't need to be unrotated at all, they're level.
Many images don't have whitespace on every side.
Some just one image with lots of whitespace.
Some images are only separated by a thin line. As little as 1-3 pixels. This seems to confuse photoshop's 'Crop and Straighten Photos' function.
Nice to have features: delete the picture after processing. User defined inset amount (amount to trim off borders)

I don't have access to a windows computer very often anymore, but wouldn't this program run under Bash on Windows? (Or whatever they call Ubuntu 14.04 being on Windows).

Hopefully this already exists and my google-fu is just weak. I am looking for etherpad for images pretty much. I'd like something that would let me upload a large image (like a map) and several smaller images (like pictures of tiny cars or army menwhatever) and then move the smaller images around the larger image and it save the state. Being able to track multiple users/contributors would be cool, but mainly just want that specific functionality. I looked up collaboration software but most of it is $$$ or aimed at app design or code versioning etc. If there was etherpad:power point version that would work too.

I'm trying to use it for an online Dungeons and Dragons game that would be played over Discord. All the chat/voice would happen over Discord and the map would just keep track of player characters and enemies on a map for battle things. Ideally looking to do a turn based game (not Fantasy Grounds where everyone is online at once - one person posts and then a few hours later someone else posts and moves a dude).

Really hoping this already exists, it is pretty minor for someone to spend time on. Recommendations would be awesome!

Edit: Looking for something browser based, not an installable software

Google slides would probably work for you. https://www.google.com/slides
I think it requires a lot more setup but also check out https://roll20.net/

This can be done with any image editing program that supports layers (eg Paint.Net, GIMP, etc). If you need to share it, you can use any screen-capture/streaming software like Shadowplay, ReLive, or OBS Studio.

I use layers a lot with photoshop but screen sharing gimp or whatever doesn't let the other players also move layers around. Screen sharing isn't conducive to a play by post format where everyone does something hours apart, unless I am misunderstanding. Sorry if I explained it poorly!

I've used roll20.net before, a little to heavy for what I want. Google Slides is great, though - it'd be perfect if I could lock the sizes of images so I can move them without accidentally resizing them. Should be able to resize them larger, move it, and then resize them small afterward. A little clunky but works great on PC and smart phones. Thanks for the recommendation!

Looking at touching up some of my old small app request fills. But I'd really rather take a whack at something new. If I see something that I think I can do in about an hour, I'll usually see it through to some basic functionality even if it takes me three hours.

Problem: tiny mailserver app that will accept incoming email and forward it to a single other email address

Description and requirements: I have a few domain names but no email set up for any of them. I have a gmail account that I use regularly. Looking into ways to set up a mail server on a PC i have, but I really don't need full smtp/pop capabilities, and I know I'm not diligent enough to keep up with maintaining it so it gets hacked etc. Ideally I would be able to point MX records to its IP address and then give it a destination(my gmail acct), and that's about it. Send mail to anyname@domain.com and it receives it and forwards it to me@gmail.com

Nice to have features: The logical next addition to this would be multiple addresses with different forwarding destinations. Multiple domains?

Thanks!

I was wondering if there were an app that could dim my monitors after I go idle for a set amount of time. Windows recently removed this functionality from 8.1.

Request Fill
Name: IdleDim
Download link: https://www.mediafire.com/file/kctm...wzb/IdleDim.zip
Source Code: in src folder
Features and Usage: a file idledim_options.json controls "brightness" (0-128) and "idletime_mins" (The minutes to wait for 0 user input and dim. Default is 10 mins)
Screenshot:



Works via SetDeviceGammaRamp (https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/li...4(v=vs.85).aspx) which I guess is a Windows setting. I don't think it communicates with the monitor itself.
Will restore the original brightness setting upon detection of user input.
May not restore brightness setting if the pc shuts down unexpectedly. Included "Reset Brightness" to bring Windows back to 100% brightness.

I did find it in Godaddy, it looked like a pay thing at first but had some credits or something, so all good
