A curated list of music DSP and audio programming resources

Oli Larkin:

This is a curated list of my favourite music DSP and audio programming resources. It was originally meant to be an official “Awesome list”, but apparently you are not meant to write in the first person, so it is now a “more awesome” list.

A collection of open source, experimental, tiny tools

700+ hand-selected tools across a range of categories such as writing, productivity, pixel art, and more. The headline link goes to the web interface, but you can also get at in rendered Markdown on the GitHub Repo.

Instead, they force people like us to scour the web for alternatives and convince our friends and family to do the same, while they sell off our data to the highest bidder.

Thankfully the Unicode standard caught on and unified communication.

What follows is an awesome list of Unicode “tidbits, packages, and resources”. And of course there’s a sub-section on everyone’s favorite: emojis

The largest Node.js best practices list

With 35k+ stars, I might be the last one to the party on this awesome repo.

It is the largest compilation, and it is growing every week - currently, more than 80 best practices, style guides, and architectural tips are presented. New issues and pull requests are created every day to keep this live book updated. We’d love to see you contributing here, whether that is fixing code mistakes, helping with translations, or suggesting brilliant new ideas.
