Welcome to my "Week in Review" series. Each week I will share what I discovered, learned, and tested with you. Let's take a look at what I got this week.
Last week I allowed myself a few days offline. The silence without push notifications and emails did very well. It was pure relaxation. For this reason, this issue is also shorter and also a bit late. I ask for your understanding. Oh yes, I am interested: How do you recharge your batteries?
Organize your GitHub Stars with Astral
As of today, I have over 650 stars on GitHub. How many do you have? Do you know what you have starred? Have you ever missed looking at your stars when you were looking up a solution for your current task? Well, then you are like me. I like bookmarking (aka. add a star) GitHub repositories, but at the same time, I do not derive any value from the stars. I’ve not yet found a tool to properly lookup starred repositories. Until Chris showed me Astral.
Astral is both free and open source. Organize all of your GitHub stars with tags, filters, notes, and a powerful search feature.
Sounds great, doesn't it? I started using it more and more and finally make use of my GitHub stars.
I started reading "We Are All Leaders: Leadership is not a position, it's a mindset" by Fredrik Arnander again. It's a handy book for entrepreneurs, managers, and leaders.
I told you that I have finished reading Ego is the Enemy last week. At the end of Ryan's book, he shares a list of books with the readers. You might want to see the list too.
I mentioned this in one of my past reviews already, it is important to me to find a proper way to digest books and preserve what I have learned. So I was all the more pleased to see that Ryan has a few tips in store here too.
