    Crystal ORM using ActiveRecord pattern with flexible query DSL

    imdrasil/ is my ORM of choice, but I'm no longer following the recommended config directory in the root of the project. I'm just stuffing initializers to be required from the main app files (i.e. src/

  • InfluxDB

    Collect and Analyze Billions of Data Points in Real Time. Manage all types of time series data in a single, purpose-built database. Run at any scale in any environment in the cloud, on-premises, or at the edge.

  • mosquito

    A background task runner for crystal applications supporting periodic (CRON) and manually queued jobs (by robacarp)

    I actually already have this implemented with the mosquito shard, but that will be covered in the next post of this series. I'm waiting for at least a day's worth of leaderboard match data to reliably compare with the results above, so stay tuned if interested I guess.

  • action-doctl

    GitHub Actions for DigitalOcean - doctl

  • opentelemetry-go

    OpenTelemetry Go API and SDK

    OpenTelemetry data on Honeycomb is able to tell me exactly how it performed (read my post about this here).
