    Project mention: Show HN: Insomnium – 100% local and privacy-focus fork of Insomnia API client | | 2023-09-29

    Yes! I plan to maintain it long-term! I will be rolling out some feature improvements and updates these few weeks.

    I still think Kong did a good job in crafting the product. I started using Insomnia in my previous company 3 years ago and our team loved it.

    What happened recently felt a little bit like the Unity fiasco (of course, in a much smaller scale). Though as a user I would say Kong had taken a bad turn, I'm still grateful to them for open-sourcing such a fantastic product.

    One of the reasons I forked it was because I've read the code and I think it's quite nicely written overall (but unfortunately things like nedb that was used is no longer maintained so it's probably wise to swap out at some point)

  • WatermelonDB

    🍉 Reactive & asynchronous database for powerful React and React Native apps ⚡️

    Project mention: Which are the best Databases for react native? | /r/reactnative | 2023-06-13

    Because most of the libraries I evaluated (RxDB, WatermelonDB) were entirely JS oriented, by design, none could provide a positive API surface in Native code.

    Project mention: Best offline&local database to use with electron? | /r/electronjs | 2023-06-11

    Not quite a database, but I use electron-store for persistent storage. It has a super simple API, and it stores data in a config.json file that’s mostly hidden from the user unless they know where to look.
