This page summarizes the projects mentioned and recommended in the original post on news.ycombinator.com

Our great sponsors
  • InfluxDB - Power Real-Time Data Analytics at Scale
  • LearnThisRepo.com - Learn 300+ open source libraries for free using AI.
  • WorkOS - The modern API for authentication & user identity.
  • Xtra

    Xtra is a Twitch player and browser for Android.

    For the plugin I would add an API to let the developer define user settings. For example look at what Xtra (https://github.com/crackededed/Xtra) offers for twitch. The most important is to be able to set a proxy to retrieve the feed in countries without ads and even bypass country geo-locks for content. Now I would probably not ship this in the official plugin, but my point is that you need to be able to expose those settings in the plugin.

  • NewPipe

    A libre lightweight streaming front-end for Android.

    - https://newpipe.net/

    IIRC piped uses a network of proxies which is exposed as a service, so youtube is not even aware of what clients are watching.

  • InfluxDB

    Power Real-Time Data Analytics at Scale. Get real-time insights from all types of time series data with InfluxDB. Ingest, query, and analyze billions of data points in real-time with unbounded cardinality.
