i finally found the time (and motivation) to finish a weekend project again! it's a utility i've been looking for a few days ago: a way to view zip files in the browser - without installing an extension or uploading the file first.

i was inspired by a similar tool, which allows you to do the same for SQLite databases: https://inloop.github.io/sqlite-viewer/. thankfully they open-sourced their work, so i was able to fork it, reuse the whole UI perfectly and only change the code for parsing the chosen file!

some good thoughts on how to make time for cleaning up messes, how to avoid them and where to look for messes at all

i was thinking about this every day but was too lazy to come up with a solution / check if there is something that already does this: show a notification when a long-running command in your terminal returns while you're not looking at it. i expect this to save dozens of minutes every day (because i get distracted while waiting for a command to finish and then forget to check it after a few minutes)

amazing example of "thinking outside of the box" in order to exploit an otherwise harmless feature

in case your Android projects that are using the NDK are suddenly refusing to compile: make sure you have the ANDROID_NDK_HOME environment variable set. I only had NDK_HOME set so far without any problems, but a recent update (maybe NDK 15.2.4203891?) suddenly caused problems!

the error was something like "NDK not configured"
