raiagent ——[ …it is possibly good ]——

Welcome to raiagent, the third-party Gentoo overlay where Raia and gentlemanly conduct collide.

+ = raiagent

Installation

raiagent is installable via the post-modern eselect repository module, superseding the antiquated layman command:

  • Install the eselect repository module (if needed).

      $ emerge --ask app-eselect/eselect-repository
      $ mkdir -p /etc/portage/repos.conf
    
  • Add and synchronize this overlay.

      $ eselect repository enable raiagent
      $ emerge --sync raiagent
    
  • Prepare for Gentoo-based winnage.

Motivation

raiagent publishes well-documented ebuilds unabashedly biased toward technological self-empowerment.1

1. We actually believe most of the specious doggerel tastelessly defibrillating that sentence.

CLI

Notable command-line interface (CLI) ebuilds include:

P2P

Notable peer-to-peer (P2P) ebuilds include:

  • ZeroNet, a peer-to-peer web hosting network brokered with demonetized BitCoin blockchain semantics distributed over the decentralized BitTorrent protocol complete with optional Tor-based traffic anonymization. Yeah. It's pretty special. raiagent officially hosts ZeroNet ebuilds. Tragically, ZeroNet is no longer actively maintained. Until someone sufficiently young and idealistic creates a well-maintained friendly fork supporting the modern Python ecosystem, we have no choice but to remove all traces of ZeroNet from ::raiagent.

Perl 5

Notable Perl 5 ebuilds include:

  • Minilla, a command automating the production and distribution of CPAN modules. Minilla is a lightweight drop-in replacement for Dist::Milla, the heavyweight older brother that should probably start hitting his local gym. raiagent unofficially hosts ebuilds installing the full Minilla stack.

Python

Notable Python ebuilds include:

(Micro|Circuit)Python

Notable MicroPython and/or CircuitPython ebuilds include:

  • Remote CLI-based controllers, REPLs, and shells – including:
    • mpremote, MicroPython's official first-party remote controller that also transparently supports CircuitPython. raiagent unofficially hosts mpremote ebuilds.
    • rshell, a once-popular MicroPython-specific remote shell largely superseded by mpremote. Nonetheless, raiagent unofficially hosts rshell ebuilds.

Retro

Notable "enthusiast" ebuilds include:

  • AntiMicroX, a cross-platform gamepad->{keyboard,mouse} GUI enabling gamepad support in arbitrary games lacking native gamepad support. raiagent unofficially hosts AntiMicroX ebuilds.
  • Munt, a cross-platform software synthesiser emulating pre-GM Roland MIDI devices (e.g., MT-32) commonly supported by MS-DOS-era games. raiagent unofficially hosts Munt ebuilds.
  • VGMPlay, a cross-platform audio player and converter effectively emulating all sequenced video game sound chips and hence supporting all sequenced video game music – ever. As RetroArch is to game emulation, VGMPlay is to game audio emulation. raiagent unofficially hosts VGMPlay ebuilds.

Roguelike

Notable roguelike (i.e., games featuring permanent death as a prominent mechanic) ebuilds include:

Interactive Fiction (IF)

Notable interactive fiction (i.e., parser games featuring text-based control schemes) ebuilds include:

Science

Notable scientifical ebuilds include:

  • BETSE (Bio Electric Tissue Simulation Engine), a cross-platform pure-Python CLI-based finite volume simulator for 2D computational multiphysics problems in the life sciences coauthored by the author of this overlay. Needless to say, raiagent officially hosts BETSE ebuilds.
  • BETSEE (Bio Electric Tissue Simulation Engine Environment), a cross-platform pure-Python PySide2-based Qt 5 GUI for BETSE coauthored by the author of this overlay. Again, raiagent officially hosts BETSEE ebuilds.

Contributors

raiagent is thanks to the concerted efforts of numerous committers and issue reporters – especially:

  • Nikolai Aleksandrovich Pavlov (ZyX-I), whose gracious contributions to the suite of Powerline ebuilds has been immeasurably invaluable. Thanks, Nikolai. Your Sisyphean efforts will not go unremembered.
