    ⚡ Rust/WebAssembly image processing library (by silvia-odwyer)

    My first implementation was based on photon_rs, a Rust based web assembly library for image processing. It worked pretty well, but it was slower than OP website. Without digging much it seems logical since photon isn’t optimized for performance.

  • squoosh

    Make images smaller using best-in-class codecs, right in the browser.

    One of the most complete image compressor out there, squoosh.app by Google, uses web assembly for decoding/encoding images and it works pretty well.

  • SurveyJS

    Open-Source JSON Form Builder to Create Dynamic Forms Right in Your App. With SurveyJS form UI libraries, you can build and style forms in a fully-integrated drag & drop form builder, render them in your JS app, and store form submission data in any backend, inc. PHP, ASP.NET Core, and Node.js.

  • libvips

    A fast image processing library with low memory needs.

    After some research, I found libvips, a demand-driven, horizontally threaded image processing library. It is designed to run quickly while using as little as memory as possible.

  • denoload

    Modern load testing tool using JavaScript and TypeScript, inspired by k6.

    www.bulkcompress.photos is just an optimized GUI of the above function. I’ve also added support for resizing and converting images into another format. Finally, to improve performance, I used the worker pool I’ve developed for my load testing tool: https://github.com/denoload/denoload.

  • bulkcompress.photos

    Bulk compress photos.

    Also, the source code is available here.

  • 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.
