Wine is a way to run Windows software on Linux, but with no Windows required. Wine is an open-source Windows compatibility layer that can run Windows programs directly on any Linux desktop. Essentially, Wine is trying to re-implement enough of Windows from scratch so that it can run all those Windows applications without actually needing Windows.





yq is a portable and lightweight command-line YAML processor. It can be likened to projects like jq (a command-line JSON processor) or sed but for YAML files. yq is able to do quite a number of things. It can deep read a YAML file with a given path expression, deeply compare YAML files, update a YAML file given a path expression or script file, and so much more. It can also merge several YAML files while offering plenty of options for overriding and appending.

yq is written in portable Go, allowing you to download a binary that's free of dependencies.
