    An easy to use, easy to deploy crypto library

    I wrote one publishable library. Luck would have it that I could have zero dependency, and make something small enough to be a single file library (two compilation units if we count the optional parts). We don't need CMake for that one, just copy the files into your on project and you're done. (That said, I do provide a pkgconfig file, that CMake can consume on UNIX systems, so…)

  • vscode-gitlens

    Supercharge Git inside VS Code and unlock untapped knowledge within each repository — Visualize code authorship at a glance via Git blame annotations and CodeLens, seamlessly navigate and explore Git repositories, gain valuable insights via rich visualizations and powerful comparison commands, and so much more

    If you're using VS Code, get the GitLens extension. It has an interactive rebase editor which I find very helpful (as well as heaps of other nice features).

  • InfluxDB

    Access the most powerful time series database as a service. Ingest, store, & analyze all types of time series data in a fully-managed, purpose-built database. Keep data forever with low-cost storage and superior data compression.

    Linux kernel source tree

    Well, the level of abstraction was absolutely perfect for the audience at a time - Linux Kernel developers, where you have massively parallel development of hundreds of features and bugfixes at a time and merging 8 branches together is something that happens casually (biggest I've seen was 32 branches wide merge).

NOTE: The number of mentions on this list indicates mentions on common posts plus user suggested alternatives. Hence, a higher number means a more popular project.
