  • Moby

    The Moby Project - a collaborative project for the container ecosystem to assemble container-based systems

  • Project mention: Release Radar • March 2024 Edition | dev.to | 2024-04-07

    Having been featured in our February 2023, and January 2024 Release Radars, Moby is the original Linux Container runtime. This new version adds a bunch of changes to the Docker CLI and Moby itself with additional features. There's bug fixes and enhancements, with the main thing for users to be on the look out for containers that were created using Docker Engine 25.0.0. These containers might have duplicate MAC addresses, and thus must be recreated. The same goes for those containers created with Moby 25.0+ and with user defined MAC addresses. Read up on all these changes in the release notes.

  • WorkOS

    The modern identity platform for B2B SaaS. The APIs are flexible and easy-to-use, supporting authentication, user identity, and complex enterprise features like SSO and SCIM provisioning.

  • syncthing

    Open Source Continuous File Synchronization

  • Project mention: Platform issues which disadvantage Firefox compared to first-party browsers | news.ycombinator.com | 2024-01-19

    My biggest gripe with Firefox on Android is that sometimes I enter a domain in the address bar, press enter and nothing happens.

    This behaviour seems to be erratic and only affects a few websites, such as https://forum.syncthing.net.

    Closing the tab or using a different one doesn't solve the problem. I need to force close the app to fix this.

  • Caddy

    Fast and extensible multi-platform HTTP/1-2-3 web server with automatic HTTPS

  • Project mention: How to securely reverse-proxy ASP.NET Core web apps | dev.to | 2024-04-04

    However, it's very unlikely that .NET developers will directly expose their Kestrel-based web apps to the internet. Typically, we use other popular web servers like Nginx, Traefik, and Caddy to act as a reverse-proxy in front of Kestrel for various reasons:

  • traefik

    The Cloud Native Application Proxy

  • go-ethereum

    Official Go implementation of the Ethereum protocol

  • Project mention: Ethereum Foundation removes their canary | news.ycombinator.com | 2024-03-20

    Even more relevant would be the Ethereum Improvement Proposal repo (where people submit proposals to change the spec):


    Or the go-ethereum execution client (the most popular execution client):


  • Gogs

    Gogs is a painless self-hosted Git service

  • Project mention: Forgejo forks its own path forward | news.ycombinator.com | 2024-02-16

    > Gitea but the other one

    Wouldn't that also be Gogs? https://gogs.io/

    I remember when that one was what a lot of people were looking into, before the Gitea fork happened. It's odd to see how this has happened yet again, but I guess is a good thing that it's even possible in the first place, if there are indeed differing values and goals?

  • minio

    The Object Store for AI Data Infrastructure

  • Project mention: A Distributed File System in Go Cut Average Metadata Memory Usage to 100 Bytes | news.ycombinator.com | 2024-02-22

    Looks like minio added this in 2022:

  • Project mention: Supabase Storage: now supports the S3 protocol | dev.to | 2024-04-18

    rclone: a command-line program to manage files on cloud storage.

  • Gitea

    Git with a cup of tea! Painless self-hosted all-in-one software development service, including Git hosting, code review, team collaboration, package registry and CI/CD

  • Project mention: Ask HN: What software sparks joy when using? | news.ycombinator.com | 2024-04-17

    Linux Mint with Cinnamon: https://www.linuxmint.com/ as far as desktop OSes go it's familiar (Ubuntu without snaps by default), whereas the UI feels both snappy, doesn't use too much resources and is actually pretty to look at.

    MobaXTerm: https://mobaxterm.mobatek.net/ this one is a bit more Windows centric but I ended up paying for it and replaced mRemoteNg and PuTTY with it, it's even better than Remmina or whatever Linux has to offer - you can manage SSH/RDP/VNC/... sessions, input across multiple sessions side by side and it just simplifies things a lot (jump host support, a port forwarding too and so much more).

    GitKraken: https://www.gitkraken.com/ also a piece of software that I paid for, this one actually makes using Git pleasant, feels better to use than SourceTree and Git Cola (even though that latter is wonderfully lightweight, too) and honestly I prefer that to the CLI nowadays.

    Kanboard: https://kanboard.org/ is a lightweight Kanban project management tool, it might not have every feature under the sun but it's the most snappy project management tool I've ever used, looks simple and runs well. I honestly love it, what a nice thing to have.

    Most modern text editors and IDEs: I personally pay for JetBrains IDEs but also like Visual Studio Code as a text editor and both have helped me immensely, they're reasonably performant when you have the RAM, look nice, often give you suggestions about how to improve your code and also have a plethora of plugins in their ecosystems. Nowadays I unapologetically use LLMs as well and overall it feels like I have these great tools and cool autocomplete (that is sometimes a bit silly and wrong) at my disposal, that makes me happy.

    Kdenlive: https://kdenlive.org/ imagine if there was a successor to Windows Movie Maker, though something that gets most of the important stuff out of Sony Vegas, except is also completely free and works on most platforms. Kdenlive is all of that and also somehow quite pleasant to use, I actually prefer it to DaVinci resolve. There is a bit of a learning curve to any piece of software like this, but everything mostly makes sense in this one.

    Gitea: https://about.gitea.com/ I still use this for my personal Git repositories and integrating with CI systems and it's lightweight, looks good and just feels pleasant to use. Previously I self-hosted GitLab and constantly ran into resource exhaustion as well as doubts about the next update is going to corrupt all of my data and break (it did), so now I use Gitea instead.

    Drone CI: https://www.drone.io/ a container native CI solution that I can also self host. It's container oriented, integrates with Gitea nicely, is similarly nice to GitLab CI and doesn't cause me headaches like Jenkins would.

    Docker: https://www.docker.com/ yes, even Docker desktop. It just makes working with containers really pleasant and predictable, even when something like Podman also exists (and also is great). I don't know, I feel like Docker really saved me from having brittle legacy environments, even self-contained containers with health checks and resource limits with still the same brittle code inside of those make me feel way more safe.

  • tidb

    TiDB is an open-source, cloud-native, distributed, MySQL-Compatible database for elastic scale and real-time analytics. Try AI-powered Chat2Query free at : https://tidbcloud.com/free-trial

  • Project mention: A MySQL compatible database engine written in pure Go | news.ycombinator.com | 2024-04-09

    tidb has been around for a while, it is distributed, written in Go and Rust, and MySQL compatible. https://github.com/pingcap/tidb

    Somewhat relatedly, StarRocks is also MySQL compatible, written in Java and C++, but it's tackling OLAP use-cases. https://github.com/StarRocks/starrocks

  • cobra

    A Commander for modern Go CLI interactions

  • Project mention: The power of the CLI with Golang and Cobra CLI | dev.to | 2024-04-06

    We can use the flag with --date or -date, Go already does the automatic check. We can make our entire boilerplate with this approach, but let's make it a little easier and use the Cobra CLI package.

  • GORM

    The fantastic ORM library for Golang, aims to be developer friendly

  • Project mention: Go ORMs Compared | dev.to | 2024-01-18

    GORM is a comprehensive ORM tool in Go, offering a code-first approach which allows defining database schemas using struct tags in Go. It's known for its developer-friendly nature, making it suitable for both beginners and experienced users. GORM supports a variety of SQL databases like MySQL, PostgreSQL, and SQLite. It's designed to be flexible, allowing developers to drop down to raw SQL when necessary. However, it's important to be cautious about its performance implications in large-scale applications.

  • nvm for Windows

    A node.js version management utility for Windows. Ironically written in Go.

  • Project mention: NVM – Node Version Management | dev.to | 2024-01-31

    I usually develop on Windows so I installed NVM for Windows from here, but if you’re on other OS I’m sure you can find a version that supports it, probably this is the answer.
