  • Mergify - Updating dependencies is time-consuming.
  • InfluxDB - Collect and Analyze Billions of Data Points in Real Time
  • SonarQube - Static code analysis for 29 languages.
  • Nim

    Nim is a statically typed compiled systems programming language. It combines successful concepts from mature languages like Python, Ada and Modula. Its design focuses on efficiency, expressiveness, and elegance (in that order of priority).

    Definitely Nim.

  • cargo-raze

    Generate Bazel BUILD from Cargo dependencies!

    Cargo is not that tightly coupled with Rust. You can absolutely use bare rustc, and in fact people do that with other build systems like Bazel.

  • 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.
