Top 4 Python Foss Projects
Zulip server and web application. Open-source team chat that helps teams stay productive and focused.Project mention: Ask HN: What are some unpopular technologies you wish people knew more about? | news.ycombinator.com | 2023-12-02
(1) Zulip Chat - https://zulip.com/ - seems to be reasonably popular, but more people should know about it
I’ve been using it for over 5 years now , and it’s as good as ever. It’s way faster than any other chat app I’ve used. It has a good UI and conversation model. It has a simple and functional API that lets me curl threads and write blog posts based on them.
(only problem is that I Ctrl-+ in my browser to make the font bigger – I think it’s too dense for most people)
(2) re2c regex to state machine compiler - https://re2c.org
A gem from the 90’s, which people have done a great job maintaining and improving (getting Go and Rust target support in the last few years). I started using it in 2016, and used for a new program a few months ago. I came to the conclusion that it should have been built into C, because C has shitty string processing – and Ken Thompson both invented C AND brought regular languages to computing !!
In comparison, treesitter lexers are very low level, fiddly, and error prone. I recently saw dozens of ad hoc fixes to the tree-sitter-bash lexer, which is unsurprising if you look at the structure of the code (manually crawling through backslashes and braces in C).
These fixes are definitely appreciated, but I think it indicates a problem with the model itself.
