  • k8deployer

    Project mention: Ask HN: Who is using C++ as the main language for new project? | news.ycombinator.com | 2022-08-12

    I'm using C++ for most of my projects, because I like it. It's also what I do for a living. The latest new open source project I initiated is a dns server, nsblast, using rocksdb for storage. https://github.com/jgaa/nsblast

    The (side) project I have put most effort into in the last year is k8deployer, a helm like utility that can deploy simple and complex applications in kubernetes with minimal effort. https://github.com/jgaa/k8deployer

    In these projects I don't use other languages. C++ is the only language where I easily get into "flow".
