  • go

    The Go programming language

  • Ken also submitted this commit to Golang to, as the Git commit message states, spell it with an "e".

  • appvm

    Nix-based app VMs

  • Isolation through virtual machines. Qubes OS is the prime example, also I like appvm a lot.

  • wondershaper

    Command-line utility for limiting an adapter's bandwidth

  • You better never try something like the wondershaper with ifconfig ...

  • redox

    Mirror of https://gitlab.redox-os.org/redox-os/redox

  • Maybe it would look a bit like that : https://github.com/redox-os/redox ! :D

  • libconfini

    Yet another INI parser

  • toml

    Tom's Obvious, Minimal Language

  • TOML has basically every feature YAML does, except going deeper into tables is not good, but is possible. I really want to like it, but the current nesting situation sucks. And whats worse, there have been proposals to make it suck less bad, but it doesn't look promising. https://github.com/toml-lang/toml/issues/781

  • bubblewrap

    Low-level unprivileged sandboxing tool used by Flatpak and similar projects

  • From the top of my head -- not exactly a container escape vulnerability, but still pretty bad: https://github.com/containers/bubblewrap/security/advisories/GHSA-j2qp-rvxj-43vj

  • nushell

    A new type of shell

  • There's been some work on implementations for that. nushell deals with structured data and has been making a lot of progress
