Dev Rider :: Development Tools/Utilities In One Place

There is a serious problem with the state of simple development tools on the internet. Most of the websites providing simple encoders/decoders/formatters/prettifiers are filled with ads and popups ๐Ÿ˜ท which makes it difficult and risky to use. And then there is also a huge problem with privacy ๐Ÿ‘€ and leaking any private data that is used on any of these websites.

DevRider is an attempt to provide a desktop tool which includes a shell and addins for various utilities.

The list of things that we can add is huge so appreciate anyone willing to contribute. I’m available to guide you through the application architecture and what is involved in making appropriate changes. Hopefully we’ll learn something useful in the process ๐Ÿ™Œ.

โš ๏ธ Add more languages for code snippets

DevRider supports curated code snippets for a tool. For eg, if you are using Base64 Encoder then it’ll show you the source code to do base64 encoding in different languages.

So if you are looking to learn a new language then please don’t hesitate to provide code samples for some of the tools already exists.

See for picking up a task as a first time contributor.

โš ๏ธ Add more tools

If you are thinking about learning Python/PyQt then consider adding a new tool. Here is a page where I described the process of adding a Markdown Viewer

Also see the current list here but you are welcome to add anything missing from that list.

Please like the Github Project and follow for development updates and spreading the word out.
