Graph of Keybase commits pre and post Zoom acquisition

This page summarizes the projects mentioned and recommended in the original post on

Our great sponsors
  • Mergify - Updating dependencies is time-consuming.
  • SonarLint - Clean code begins in your IDE with SonarLint
  • InfluxDB - Collect and Analyze Billions of Data Points in Real Time
  • client

    Keybase Go Library, Client, Service, OS X, iOS, Android, Electron

    I encourage everyone who liked Keybase to add a comment to this issue to support opensourcing the server portion of Keybase.

    Hopefully if enough people make their voices heard Zoom will either opensource it or maybe revive development of it.

  • cyph

    Cryptographically secure messaging and social networking service.

    It would be wasteful to throw away the Web of Trust (people with handles to keys) that everyone entered into Keybase. Hopefully, Zoom will consider opening up the remaining pieces of Keybase if not just spinning the product back out to a separate entity?

    W3C DIDs and https://blockcerts

    From :

    > There's also "Web Key Directory"; which hosts GPG keys over HTTPS from a .well-known URL for a given user@domain identifier:

    > GPG presumes secure key distribution

    > Compared to existing PGP/GPG keyservers [HKP], WKD does rely upon HTTPS.

    Blockcerts can be signed when granted to a particular identity entity:

    > Here are the open sources of blockchain-certificates/cert-issuer and blockchain-certificates/cert-verifier-js:

  • Mergify

    Updating dependencies is time-consuming.. Solutions like Dependabot or Renovate update but don't merge dependencies. You need to do it manually while it could be fully automated! Add a Merge Queue to your workflow and stop caring about PR management & merging. Try Mergify for free.

  • Rundeck

    Enable Self-Service Operations: Give specific users access to your existing tools, services, and scripts

    Compare to rundeck after they were acquired by Pagerduty

  • Peergos

    A p2p, secure file storage, social network and application protocol

    You might like Peergos (disclaimer: co-founder here), an encrypted global filesystem built on ipfs -

    We can also do signed identity proofs with better privacy than keybase's. Here's a public example

  • upspin

    Upspin: A framework for naming everyone's everything.

    ignoring its UX, is the closest alternative that i'm aware of
