About me

My photo

Hi! My name is Michał Góral and I’m a programmer, hobby guitarist, hard sci-fi reader, Free Software advocate, as well as a faithful fan and user of Debian. Even though I don’t have beard1, most of the time I’m found in terminal instead of a nice graphical environment2.

I use Free Software a lot. I try to give back to the community as much as I can. Among many bigger and smaller projects which I created or co-created, there are few which I don’t have to be ashamed of (hopefully):

  • Subconvert - movie subtitles converter and editor (unmaintained, unusable on Wayland);
  • Feed Commas - CommaFeed’s (RSS aggregator and reader) console client (unmaintained);
  • Quicksend - console program for quick sending messages via different protocols (unmaintained);
  • Commenter - filter used for commenting-out and uncommenting blocks of text;
  • AnyWebHook - generic web hook, or rather a framework for writing your own web hooks;
  • Yaxo - yet another xdg-open replacement;
  • TWWeb - TaskWarrior web interface (unmaintained, should work);
  • TWC - Interactive terminal frontend for TaskWarrior (unmaintained, should work);
  • KeePass Shell - shell-like interface providing access to KeePass databases.
  • Zet - modular, Zettelkasten aware command line notebooks manager.
  • i3a - i3 and Sway automation through their IPC capabilities.
  • Stag - static site generator (this site is built with it).

I use unnecessarily fabulous image frames.

  1. I do have now. 

  2. Not entirely true. X server runs all the time, but its main client is usually terminal emulator.
