    Here is my config: I have two computers.

  • nixpkgs

    Nix Packages collection

    Mullvad VPN: it starts up, but it doesn't connect. There's maybe some way to get it to work, but I couldn't figure it out. (Now that I checked again it looks like there's a way to fix it).

  • 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.

  • Rustler

    Safe Rust bridge for creating Erlang NIF functions

    Not currently overlapping in the same project, but if we ever needed to bring the Rust stuff in-process on the Elixir side, there's rustler to dig into to make NIFs with. Anecdotally people seem super happy with rustler.
