  • Scout APM - Less time debugging, more time building
  • SonarQube - Static code analysis for 29 languages.
  • OPS - Build and Run Open Source Unikernels
  • zim-desktop-wiki

    Main repository of the zim desktop wiki project

    In that case, you might like Zim. It's a desktop wiki tool, that writes flat text files in folders (if you use note nesting), using markdown (plus buttons for formatting if you prefer). You can configure it to default new notes to include date, and I think a calandar selector is used for something, but I've only used it for cross-referenced things, such as cookbooks or loading TTRPGs/settings together.

  • syncthing

    Open Source Continuous File Synchronization

    I think jrnl may be exactly what you're looking for. You can do quick entries directly from the command line or have it open your favorite text editor. It handles encryption, date and time stamps, tags, etc. I used it for a long time before I decided to switch back to old-fashioned pen and paper. As for syncing, I'd recommend syncthing, which is amazing in general.

  • 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.

  • Joplin

    Joplin - an open source note taking and to-do application with synchronization capabilities for Windows, macOS, Linux, Android and iOS. Forum:

  • github-orgmode-tests

    This is a test project where you can explore how github interprets Org-mode files
