  • SonarLint - Deliver Cleaner and Safer Code - Right in Your IDE of Choice!
  • Scout APM - Less time debugging, more time building
  • SaaSHub - Software Alternatives and Reviews
  • Mechanics-of-MobileCoin

    Technical exploration of the MobileCoin cryptocurrency

  • Synapse

    Synapse: Matrix homeserver written in Python 3/Twisted.

    https://matrix.org/ - It's an open, federated, E2E encrypted messaging standard. The downside is it's more complicated, so someone would need to come out with a very simple Signal-like client that just happens to use Matrix as a back-end.

  • Prosody IM

    IMPORTANT: due to a drive failure, as of 13-Mar-2021, the Mercurial repository had to be re-mirrored, which changed every commit SHA. The old SHAs and trees are backed up in the vault branches. Please migrate to the new branches as soon as you can.

    It supports voice and video calls, and you use it on your own server (like prosody.im and ejabberd.im). It's also really simple to get a user to create an account on a server you run/a public one and.... it does not require a phone number or an email address.

  • fast_yaml

    Fast YAML native library for Erlang / Elixir

    It supports voice and video calls, and you use it on your own server (like prosody.im and ejabberd.im). It's also really simple to get a user to create an account on a server you run/a public one and.... it does not require a phone number or an email address.

  • Conversations

    Conversations is an open source XMPP/Jabber client for Android

    conversations.im is a open-source, privacy focused and secure messaging app, that implements OMEMO (which is Signal protocol adapted for XMPP). I won't say it's non-profit as the guy leading the project does it as his own full-time job.

  • Scout APM

    Less time debugging, more time building. Scout APM allows you to find and fix performance issues with no hassle. Now with error monitoring and external services monitoring, Scout is a developer's best friend when it comes to application development.
