    Project mention: Launch HN: Bracket (YC W22) – Two-Way Sync Between Salesforce and Postgres | | 2023-12-12

    I'l also give a shout-out to Airbyte (, with which I've had some limited success with integrating Salesforce to a local database. The particular pull for Airbyte is that we can self-host the open source version, rather than pay Fivetran a significant sum to do this for us.

    It's an immature tool, so I don't yet know that I can claim we've spent _less_ than Fivetran on the additional engineering and ops time, but it feels like it has potential to do so once stabilized.

    Why would you trust Google or Mozilla with any of your data? They're both horrifically untrustworthy. Self-host your bookmarks:

    Linkding has plugins for Librewolf (privacy aware Firefox) and all the Chrome-garpage (Brave, Vivaldi, etc.) that can handle tagging as well as inject your own bookmarks into your search results.

    +1 on shynet! I use it for my personal website and my blog, and it's been working great.

    I got it up and running with Podman, so no need to install and run the Docker daemon. I also fixed SQLite support [1], so no need for an additional DB server.

    I analyzed available open-source web analytics tools [2] and AFAIK there is simpler solution for web analytics that doesn't involve a third party.
