  • WorkOS - The modern identity platform for B2B SaaS
  • InfluxDB - Power Real-Time Data Analytics at Scale
  • SaaSHub - Software Alternatives and Reviews
  • OpenMediaVault

    openmediavault is the next generation network attached storage (NAS) solution based on Debian Linux. Thanks to the modular design of the framework it can be enhanced via plugins. openmediavault is primarily designed to be used in home environments or small home offices.

  • Unless you've got another project in mind for your Pi4 (and who doesn't?), I enjoyed (mostly) my time running an OpenMediaVault machine (I was running Plex and a couple of minecraft servers on it). Here's a guide for installing pihole on an OMV machine, and this guy has a TON of useful tutorial videos around all kinds of neat stuff you can do with OMV (as well as initial setup/config vids).

  • OctoPrint

    OctoPrint is the snappy web interface for your 3D printer!

  • As for alternate rPi projects, I've got one running as an OctoPrint server for my 3D printer, and the other one tracks air traffic near my house.

  • WorkOS

    The modern identity platform for B2B SaaS. The APIs are flexible and easy-to-use, supporting authentication, user identity, and complex enterprise features like SSO and SCIM provisioning.
