  • Appwrite - The Open Source Firebase alternative introduces iOS support
  • Sonar - Write Clean JavaScript Code. Always.
  • InfluxDB - Access the most powerful time series database as a service
  • pldb

    PLDB: a Programming Language Database. A public domain knowledge graph focused on programming languages distributed as a website and CSV file.

    We had this but the title was set to "xtclang". Just fixed ( Thank you!

  • v

    Simple, fast, safe, compiled language for developing maintainable software. Compiles itself in <1s with zero library dependencies. Supports automatic C => V translation.

    Just got to know about this project, and it looked very promising initially. But then I read the doc. And now I changed my mind to the opposite.

  • 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!

  • xvm

    Ecstasy and XVM


  • Svelte

    Cybernetically enhanced web apps

    I’m not sure a JS library qualifies as a PL. Or automation software (SoftStack). Or an API description language. Or a build system.

  • Angular

    The modern web developer’s platform

    If Svelte is on there as being a superset of HTML, then Angular should be on there as well:

  • Sonar

    Write Clean JavaScript Code. Always.. Sonar helps you commit clean code every time. With over 300 unique rules to find JavaScript bugs, code smells & vulnerabilities, Sonar finds the issues while you focus on the work.
