  • CodiumAI - TestGPT | Generating meaningful tests for busy devs
  • Sonar - Write Clean Java Code. Always.
  • ONLYOFFICE ONLYOFFICE Docs — document collaboration in your environment
  • InfluxDB - Access the most powerful time series database as a service
  • podman

    Podman: A tool for managing OCI containers and pods.

    docker: ship the toolchain as a docker container; they need docker for that and often root (to install and maybe to run) but podman fixes that, example for MS here

  • Bazel

    a fast, scalable, multi-language and extensible build system

    use bazel and hermetic builds, bazel can act as a package manager for the libs you need; it’s not super easy but can be very rewarding once you start caching stuff

  • CodiumAI

    TestGPT | Generating meaningful tests for busy devs. Get non-trivial tests (and trivial, too!) suggested right inside your IDE, so you can code smart, create more value, and stay confident when you push.
