    > I don't think the exact URL is the problem, it is the fact that it is so easy to include dependencies from external repository that is the problem. In Rust every non-trivial library pulls in 10s or even 100s of dependencies.

    But it's also quite a lot easier to audit those dependencies, even automatically (incidentally, GitHub provides dependency scanning for free for many languages).

    > Then there is the issue of licencing - how to verify that I am not using some library in violation of its licence and what happens if the licence changes down the road and I don't notice it because I am implicitly using 500 dependencies due to my 3 main libraries?

    This is also an automated task. For example, https://github.com/google/go-licenses

    > go-licenses analyzes the dependency tree of a Go package/binary. It can output a report on the libraries used and under what license they can be used. It can also collect all of the license documents, copyright notices and source code into a directory in order to comply with license terms on redistribution.

    > Rust and Go have solved memory safety compared to C and C++ but have introduced dependency hell of yet unknown proportions.

    I mean, it's been a decade and things seem to be going pretty well. Also, I don't think anyone who has actually used these languages seriously has ever characterized their dependency management as "dependency hell"; however, lots of people talk about the "dependency hell" of managing C and C++ dependencies.

    > Python and other dynamically typed languages are in a league of their own in that on top of the dependency hell they also do not provide compiler checks that would allow user to see the problem before the exact conditions occur at runtime.

    I won't argue with you there.

  • OPS

    OPS - Build and Run Open Source Unikernels. Quickly and easily build and deploy open source unikernels in tens of seconds. Deploy in any language to any cloud.

  • jwt-key-server

    JWT based remote licensing server.

    Project mention: Subscription and license management software | reddit.com/r/Entrepreneur | 2021-09-11

    You can use this for example. It lacks documentation but it seems people found out how to use it. Also there is a lot of forks and maybe people also improve the legacy python version.

  • gitgen

    Generate license and gitignore files from Go without an internet connection. It also has a convenience CLI, but can be used as a library as well
