Top 14 JavaScript Mad Science Projects

  • webtorrent

    ⚡️ Streaming torrent client for the web

    Project mention: Transmission v4.0 | | 2023-02-07

    I stopped torrenting some time ago, but what are people's experience with webtorrent?

    I'd just as soon avoid running additional software if possible.

  • PDFKit

    A JavaScript PDF generation library for Node and the browser

    Project mention: react-pdf | | 2023-02-05

    I use pdfkit at work

  • Appwrite

    Appwrite - The Open Source Firebase alternative introduces iOS support . Appwrite is an open source backend server that helps you build native iOS applications much faster with realtime APIs for authentication, databases, files storage, cloud functions and much more!

  • turf

    A modular geospatial engine written in JavaScript

    Project mention: Getting the distance from point A to point B. | | 2022-09-26

    Not to take away from you learning, which I think is awesome, I was wondering if you know about which provides a lot of simple modules … and is surprisingly hard to find. Their `distance` modules may be relevant in this case.

  • ipfs

    IPFS implementation in JavaScript

    Project mention: How to store your app's entire state in the url | | 2023-01-09

    Store the content in ipfs and just put the hash in the URL? I haven't used in this capacity but I'm under the impression that that's what it's supposed to do.

  • isomorphic-git

    A pure JavaScript implementation of git for node and browsers!

    Project mention: I'm at my wits end trying to think of a master's thesis. Begging for advice at this point. | | 2022-12-19
  • nsfwjs

    NSFW detection on the client-side via TensorFlow.js

    Project mention: Bumble open sources Private Detector, AI tool to detect unsolicited lewd images | | 2022-10-24

    This would be interesting 2 years ago, but considering how long is available and related this seems just like Bumble's attempt to get into news.

  • peerflix

    Streaming torrent client for node.js

    Project mention: Show HN: HTorrent – A HTTP to BitTorrent gateway with seeking written in Go | | 2022-06-17
  • InfluxDB

    Build time-series-based applications quickly and at scale.. InfluxDB is the Time Series Platform where developers build real-time applications for analytics, IoT and cloud-native services. Easy to start, it is available in the cloud or on-premises.

  • GitTorrent

    A decentralization of GitHub using BitTorrent and Bitcoin

  • js-git

    A JavaScript implementation of Git.

    Project mention: [media] Gitoxide celebrating 100k lines of Rust code 🎉 | | 2022-09-20

    js-git is dormant but used by 30k+ projects, apparently, and is somewhat of a special case I think. It's niche but seems to fulfill it's intended purpose.

  • stackgl

    :sparkles: A node.js-style module system for GLSL!

    Project mention: React Three Fiber and NextJS Starter Template | | 2022-05-19

    This is actually pretty simple to implement if you’re already using Webpack. You essentially use the raw-loader to load the “raw” shader file and glsify-loader to parse the GLSL shader.

  • limdu

    Machine-learning for Node.js

  • peercast

    torrent-stream + chromecast

  • webcat

    Mad science p2p pipe across the web using webrtc that uses your Github private/public key for authentication and a signalhub for discovery

  • peerwiki

    all of wikipedia on bittorrent
