  • Gor

    GoReplay is an open-source tool for capturing and replaying live HTTP traffic into a test environment in order to continuously test your system with real data. It can be used to increase confidence in code deployments, configuration changes and infrastructure changes.

    Project mention: Launch HN: Codeparrot (YC W23) – Automated API testing using production traffic | news.ycombinator.com | 2023-03-17

    I love to see more activity in this area!

    I'm maintainer of GoReplay https://github.com/buger/goreplay and work in this area for the last 10 years.

    It is quite hard problem to solve, because you have to deal with state difference between test and production environments. Love your approach to mocking dependencies, and leveraging OpenTelementry. It potentially can solve some of state issues. But still require modifying user code. I wonder if it can be done purely using OpenTelementry (e.g. you depend on typical OTel setup), and then read the data directly from OTel DB.


  • watchtower

    Project mention: Bus ETA | /r/commandline | 2023-11-16

    Hi ! I'm currently in the process of building myself dashboards using sampler and / or WTF. I want a section with the live ETA of some buses stop from STM. I know they have an SMS option so that may be a lead but i've figured there might be a better way using iBus or something. Thanks in advance !!

  • sops

    Simple and flexible tool for managing secrets

    Project mention: Show HN: Alaz: Open-Source, Self-Hosted, eBPF-Based K8s Monitoring | news.ycombinator.com | 2023-09-06

    The one similar product I had come across is Kubeshark (https://github.com/kubeshark/kubeshark). But admittedly the eBPF way seems more performant theoretically (given you can afford to have a modern-enough kernel). I'm really excited to see how this project develops out.

    The eBPF-mode of innovation is pretty exciting, truly a fresh lens to building software. I'm also following Akita Software - the company building an eBPF paradigm of monitoring.

  • infracost

    Cloud cost estimates for Terraform in pull requests💰📉 Shift FinOps Left!

    Project mention: Top 10 terraform tools you should know about. | dev.to | 2023-12-11

    Infracost is a tool that provides cloud cost estimates for infrastructure managed by Terraform. It enables engineers to view and understand the financial impact of their infrastructure changes before they are applied. Infracost integrates directly into the workflow, offering cost breakdowns in various environments like the terminal, Visual Studio Code, or directly within pull requests. This feature allows for more informed decision-making regarding infrastructure modifications, promoting cost-awareness and budget management in the early stages of development. Infracost is particularly useful for teams looking to balance cloud resource utilization with budget constraints. Infracost Cloud is their SaaS product that builds on top of Infracost open source and works with CI/CD integrations. It gives team leads, managers and FinOps practitioners dashboards, guardrails, centralized cost policies and Jira integration so they can help guide the team (e.g. switch AWS GP2 volumes to GP3).

  • dagger

    Application Delivery as Code that Runs Anywhere (by dagger)

    Project mention: BuildKit in depth: Docker's build engine explained | news.ycombinator.com | 2024-02-06

    Dagger (https://dagger.io) is a great way to use BuildKit through language SDKs. It's such a better paradigm, I cannot imagine going back.

    Dagger is by the same folks that brought us Docker. This is their fresh take on solving the problem of container building and much more. BuildKit can more than build images and Dagger unlocks it for you.

  • webhook

    Project mention: CodiumAI PR-Agent Dominates the Dev World with Versatility and Open-Source Power | dev.to | 2023-12-03

    CodiumAI PR-Agent’s influence extends deeply within open-source projects. An exemplary illustration is Kubespace, a Cloud Native Computing Foundation (CNCF) sandbox project. Since its adoption in August, Kubespace has been utilizing the PR-Agent service. They also recently had a public bug bounty collaboration with CodiumAI. This program added an extra layer of community-driven scrutiny, encouraging contributors to utilize simple commands like /describe for effective pull request messages. Here the contributor wanted to better describe the PR, so he used the /describe prompt.

  • Task

    The GitLab/GitHub for database DevOps. World's most advanced database DevOps and CI/CD for Developer, DBA and Platform Engineering teams.

    Project mention: PostgreSQL Is Enough | news.ycombinator.com | 2024-02-06

    Migrations. All my database logic lives in version control.

    Popular tooling like Phoenix, Hasura, etc have good built in migration stories.

    https://www.bytebase.com looks really promising.

    Hover, I do struggle with one big issue: changing database logic (views, functions, etc) that has other logic dependent on it. This seems like a solvable problem.
