This page summarizes the projects mentioned and recommended in the original post on reddit.com/r/linux

Our great sponsors
  • Appwrite - The Open Source Firebase alternative introduces iOS support
  • Scout APM - Less time debugging, more time building
  • SonarQube - Static code analysis for 29 languages.
  • Linux-Fake-Background-Webcam

    Faking your webcam background under GNU/Linux, now supports background blurring, animated background, colour map effect, hologram effect and on-demand processing.

    I was going to say, Zoom's absolutely broken greenscreen support is nicely hacked in X by the community with this excellent repo: https://github.com/fangfufu/Linux-Fake-Background-Webcam

  • BigBlueButton

    Complete open source web conferencing system.

    BigBlueButton is an alternative to Zoom for education, give your university an email at the least.

  • Appwrite

    Appwrite - The Open Source Firebase alternative introduces iOS support . Appwrite is an open source backend server that helps you build native iOS applications much faster with realtime APIs for authentication, databases, files storage, cloud functions and much more!

  • jitsi

    Jitsi is an audio/video and chat communicator that supports protocols such as SIP, XMPP/Jabber, IRC and many other useful features.
