  • nodeBB

    Project mention: NodeBB - Node.js based forum software built for the modern web | | 2021-12-25
  • noVNC

    VNC client web application

    Project mention: Alternatives to Remote Desktop | | 2022-05-06

    noVNC works really well even in limited setup (through proxies, VPN, no client install env, etc). Pretty easy to setup on Linux machines, elsewhere I don't know.

  • 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!

  • SocketCluster

    Highly scalable realtime pub/sub and RPC framework

    Project mention: Looking for real-time message solution recommendations | | 2022-06-05

    The two best lightweight solutions I have worked with are SocketCluster and NATS. SocketCluster is used to build out a custom backend that scales very well. NATS would be used as a central pub/sub system. If you need queueing, you'll need to add additional services like Redis.

  • spec

    The AsyncAPI specification allows you to create machine-readable definitions of your asynchronous APIs. (by asyncapi)

    Project mention: IoT Core will be discontinued on Aug. 16, 2023 | | 2022-08-15

    I'm in the process of migrating's remote command/event system off Cloud IoT Core. I've been running on IoT Core for 1.5 years. Here's my breakdown of the costs...

    - $236.99 in usage, approx 1% of project's total revenue

    - ~20 hours to implement pub/sub applications running on a mix of Raspberry Pi & GCP VMs. Implementations were in Rust and Python. It would have taken much, much longer to stand up a managed MQTT broker and identity/key management that I felt comfortable using in my own home, let alone providing to customers.

    - Hundreds of hours implementing and debugging glue between GCP's Pub/Sub product, websocket-based subscribers, and MQTT subscribers/publishers.

    I don't regret my decision (wouldn't have shipped otherwise), but I'm looking forward to the next phase. Here's what I'm migrating towards:

    - NATs message broker. NATS supports connections via MQTT and Websocket protocols, besides NATS own protocol.

    - django-nats-nkeys for org, identity, and JWT management (not production-ready, don't use this until I've been eating my own dog food for a few months) [1]

    - AsyncAPI schemas [2] for core message APIs, including schemas for 3rd-party printer software events (OctoPrint, Moonraker, Repetier, etc). This will underpin PrintNanny's plugin system.

    If you cant convince him otherwise: Try to look up if they support ONVIF, then someone skilled can setup a DVR system (airgapped if wanted) with a raspberry pi and shinobi software ( The only thing needed are the raspi, a big harddrive, a WLAN Acess Point and supported cameras.
