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

Our great sponsors
  • Appwrite - The Open Source Firebase alternative introduces iOS support
  • InfluxDB - Access the most powerful time series database as a service
  • Sonar - Write Clean JavaScript Code. Always.
  • hypher

    A fast and small JavaScript hyphenation engine

    yes, so as a general rule for any publishing scenario where hyphenation is important you have an automated solution, for example for a small company / single person you might set up something using https://github.com/bramstein/hypher or find a similar tool.

    Also this tends to be sort of overkill for what most people want so - as with most tech - gotta evaluate if it's worth the time and effort.

  • arara

  • Appwrite

    Appwrite - The Open Source Firebase alternative introduces iOS support . Appwrite is an open source backend server that helps you build native iOS applications much faster with realtime APIs for authentication, databases, files storage, cloud functions and much more!

  • mdBook

    Create book from markdown files. Like Gitbook but implemented in Rust

    I wish that would have been possible with mdBook too. Sadly, it can't even generate PDF or ePub[1][2]. Compared to gitbooks from which we switched to mdBook it's a significant downgrade.
