Tips and Tricks
On the side I am developing several tiny programs that are handy in everyday life. The following projects are hosted on my GitHub repo:
- MavLogAnalyzer: A tool to visualize flight logs from multicopters and other MAVs. This GUI can parse MavLink logs, Pixhawk onboard logs and APM onboard logs, and shows them unified in a nice GUI with graph, quick statistics and markers. Data can then be exported to CSV or stored and queried from a database. We use it to perform post-flight analysis for MART.
- bibloader: Perl script that automatically archives PDFs that are opened in Firefox and are matching an entry in a given BibTex file. I read a lot of documents, which I log into a BibTex file. This script "downloads" the PDFs of such documents to my computer, such that I always have a backup in case the document disappears in its electronic form.
- ox-mm: MoinMoin-Exporter for Emacs org-mode 8.0+. I do a lot in Emacs' org-mode. There is always the point in time, when someone else might need information which I have already captured and structured there, but chances are high that this person is not using org-mode. This Lisp-packge allows to export my org-mode trees to MoinMoin Wiki format.
