  • mkcert

    A simple zero-config tool to make locally trusted development certificates with any names you'd like.

    Project mention: You Can't Follow Me | news.ycombinator.com | 2024-01-11

    The author mentions difficulties with HTTPS and trying stuff locally.

    I've had some success with mkcert [1] to easily create certificates trusted by browsers, I can suggest to look into this. You are your own root CA, I think it can work without an internet connection.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Wox

    A cross-platform launcher that simply works

    Project mention: Keypirinha: A fast launcher for keyboard ninjas on Windows | news.ycombinator.com | 2024-01-16

    I find Wox (which also uses Everything) a really great quick launcher, it saves a lot of time.

  • duf

    Disk Usage/Free Utility - a better 'df' alternative

    Project mention: Go: What We Got Right, What We Got Wrong | news.ycombinator.com | 2024-01-04

    Not sure these are really popular, but I cannot resist advertising a few utilities written in Go that I regularly use in my daily workflow:

    - gdu: a NCDU clone, much faster on SSD mounts [1]

    - duf: a `df` clone with a nicer interface [2]

    - massren: a `vidir` clone (simpler to use but with fewer options) [3]

    - gotop: a `top` clone [4]

    - micro: a nice TUI editor [5]

    Building this kind of tools in Go makes sense, as the executables are statically compiled and are thus easy to install on remote servers.

  • chezmoi

    I've always had sync issues with iCloud Drive when storing developer projects and related things there. It ends up stuck or confused or conflicted but tries to resolve the merge conflicts opaquely and it's hard to know there's a problem in real time vs until later when you find something broken. I keep all dev things out of iCloud after getting burned by this enough times over the years.

    To OP: Consider a repo dotfiles setup like using Chezmoi or similar. Transitioning to it was less friction than I expected and the only downside really is having to remember to commit changes across devices.
