  • moiva

    A Universal tool to Evaluate, Discover alternatives and Compare Software projects.

  • sst

    Build modern full-stack applications on AWS

  • Most my personal and side-business projects have very spiky load or just low load in general. Because of that I love using AWS Lambda as my backend since it scales to 0 and scales to whatever you have your limits set at.

    I use SST [0] for my backend with NodeJS (TypeScript) and Vue (Quasar) for my frontend. For my database I use either Postgres or DynamoDB if the fit is right (Single Table Design is really neat). For Postgres I like Neon [1] though their recent pricing changes make it less appealing.

  • neon

    Neon: Serverless Postgres. We separated storage and compute to offer autoscaling, branching, and bottomless storage.

  • astro

    The web framework for content-driven websites. ⭐️ Star to support our work!

  • Astro SSR with React components when in need (rarely). A joy to iterate upon since you don't have to worry about coordination between the frontend and backend. Easy to dockerize and deploy wherever you want (I'm looking at you Next!). Never been more productive in my life. https://astro.build/

  • InfluxDB
