  • ruff

    An extremely fast Python linter and code formatter, written in Rust.

    I love Ruff and I'm glad that Charlie and the rest of the team are able to work on tools full-time. I'm also happy to see that the author of Maturin (Rust+Python interop) is involved, as Maturin is a fantastic project with great ease-of-use.

    For those who aren't familiar, Ruff is a very fast Python linter that supersedes a variety of tools like isort, flake8, and perhaps eventually Black [1]. My understanding is that since Ruff is an all-in-one tool, it can parse the underlying Python files just once -- and since this is the most expensive phase of these kinds of Python tool, any additional functionality is very cheap. And that's to say nothing of the fact that it's built on Rust, with the usual performance wins that Rust produces.

    I'm a little apprehensive of how development will look given a VC raise with the expectation of VC returns. But for now, I'm delighted and can't wait to see what the team comes up with.


  • bun

    Incredibly fast JavaScript runtime, bundler, test runner, and package manager – all in one

    nowadays, it's cool to say this new toy is faster than the rest because it is written in Rust without providing further details?

    When I visit the Bun project landing page[0], I get concise reasons as to why bun is faster than its peers.

  • core-js

    Standard Library

    > A lot of companies would pay actual money for some semblance of supply-chain security.

    After the core-js debacle[0] earlier this year, it was evident that alot of companies actually do not care care about supply-chain security.

    Those that do will happily roll their own hosted repositories that provide little to no guarantees.


  • Home Assistant

    :house_with_garden: Open source home automation that puts local control and privacy first.

    18 minutes of CPU time vs 22 seconds of CPU time is significant energy-wise too.

    (Example from by yours truly.)

  • Poetry

    Python packaging and dependency management made easy

    Using something like [poetry]( would make your workflow much better. With this tool, you don’t need to care about venv and `which python`.

  • 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.
