  • SonarQube - Static code analysis for 29 languages.
  • InfluxDB - Build time-series-based applications quickly and at scale.
  • bad_json_parsers

    Exposing problems in json parsers of several programming languages.

    The nginx default is 1MB, which gets you 512 uncompressed nested arrays. That's already beyond the nesting limit of many parsers (see the Results section of that repository README, which documents the limit on many different language libraries).

  • Scout APM

    Truly a developer’s best friend. Scout APM is great for developers who want to find and fix performance issues in their applications. With Scout, we'll take care of the bugs so you can focus on building great things 🚀.
