  • Packer

    Packer is a tool for creating identical machine images for multiple platforms from a single source configuration.

    Project mention: Open Up The Cloud Newsletter #28 (October Recap 2021) | dev.to | 2022-01-20

    Operating Serverless At Scale – Consistency (Part 2) (Jerome Van Der Linden, AWS) — This second article goes into topics of standardization, with the examples of SAM templates and base images. I know from working on internal platform teams on developer experience just how big a topic standardization and templates can be. Rolling templates out to teams, and managing them, ensuring they’re used, maintained, and kept up-to-date, is a really difficult task. Tools like Backstage can help us here. The second part of the article covers using base images, which is a fairly standard industry practice. If you’re using containers with Lambda, or Fargate it does make sense to have standardized base images, not just for consistency but also for security. Tools like Packer can also help here.

  • Hey

    HTTP load generator, ApacheBench (ab) replacement, formerly known as rakyll/boom

    Project mention: Understand Django: Go Fast With Django | dev.to | 2022-01-19

    There are two tools that are very similar that I use when I need to get a crude measure of the performance of a site. These tools are hey and ab (Apache Bench). Both of these tools are load generators that are meant to benchmark a site's basic performance characteristics.

  • miller

    Miller is like awk, sed, cut, join, and sort for name-indexed data such as CSV, TSV, and tabular JSON

    Project mention: Fq: Jq for Binary Formats | news.ycombinator.com | 2021-12-22

    Miller Csv can process json in record format and has a much saner DSL in my experience.


  • yq

    yq is a portable command-line YAML processor

    Project mention: Grep one-liners as CI tasks | news.ycombinator.com | 2022-01-14

    In today's world of excellent CLI tools I don't think grep is a good choice, especially for checking irregular languages like XML. [0]

    I use tools like `jq` [1] or `yq` [2] all the time for CI checks. One useful check, is we have a configuration file stored as several hundred lines of YAML. Its a nice thing to maintain a sorted order for that, so we have a git pre-commit hook that runs the following:

    > yq eval --inplace '.my_key|= sort' my_file.yaml

    Of course, a pre-commit hook or CI both work. There's pros and cons of both. For our team, the pre-commit hook is a low enough level of effort, and doesn't require a CI check for something that executes in milliseconds.

  • bombardier

    Project mention: Estou a ser burlado (tenho um anúncio no OLX), e a gostar. Deixa ver até onde isto vai. | reddit.com/r/portugal | 2021-12-26

    Podes utilizar algo como o bombardier.

  • kubefwd

    Bulk port forwarding Kubernetes services for local development.

    Project mention: Using Telepresence 2 for Kubernetes debugging and local development | dev.to | 2021-04-15

    Kubefwd works similar to Telepresence by making your local environment think it is inside the cluster. The networking tunnel is one direction only. Telepresence is much smarter as it also makes the other cluster applications think that your local app is inside the same cluster. So with Kubefwd you only get 50% of what basic Telepresence offers. Telepresence also has volume mounting support for more advanced scenarios.

  • devspace
