  • Killed by Google

    Part guillotine, part graveyard for Google's doomed apps, services, and hardware.

    Rob Pike is 66 and the average male life expectancy in America is 76 years. Of course I wish him to live happily for many more years, but it would be presumptuous to expect him to work on Go for the rest of his life.

    But although google has killed 264 projects so far [1], I believe that Go has too many dependents at Google and in industry to cancel. And even if it should happen anyway, the community will fork it.

  • InfluxDB

    Build time-series-based applications quickly and at scale.. InfluxDB is the Time Series Platform where developers build real-time applications for analytics, IoT and cloud-native services. Easy to start, it is available in the cloud or on-premises.

  • lwc

    LightWeight C++ (by mingodad)

  • cfront-3

    self education and historical research of the C++ compiler cfront v3 (by mingodad)

  • dmd

    dmd D Programming Language compiler

  • zig-gamedev

    Building game development ecosystem for @ziglang!

    I agree, and much easier than Rust to get going and then some. Other than playing with Nannou in Rust to 'get' the language, and the Rust book, I started a toy game in Zig without more than the skeleton put together here:

    https://github.com/michal-z/zig-gamedev

    I like Raylib, and there are bindings for most popular languages, but I like the minimalism I can start with fairly quickly in Zig. I tried Bevy for Rust, but it is a lot more involved, and Rust, so Zig it is for now.

    For safety, and high-integrity software, I am sticking with SPARK2014. Rust will get there soon, but Ada/SPARK2014 have such a lead, maturity, and industry take up that I am putting Rust down for another year or more.

    Vinix is an effort to write a modern, fast, and useful operating system in the V programming language

    It's a great concept, but languages like Rust (https://www.rust-lang.org/), Zig (https://ziglang.org), Vlang (https://vlang.io/), etc... are already running with a similar idea to being easy to interact with C and are viable alternatives to it as well. Vlang even created its own OS, Vinix (https://github.com/vlang/vinix), to show its capabilities in this regard.

    Seems to me, Cello would be more for those C programmers that didn't want to try the various alternative languages that are now out, and happen to agree with its developer's interpretation of what high level constructs would look like. The point of these alternative languages is to offer features that C doesn't have or to implement them in easier or clearer ways.

  • Sonar

    Write Clean C++ Code. Always.. Sonar helps you commit clean C++ code every time. With over 550 unique rules to find C++ bugs, code smells & vulnerabilities, Sonar finds the issues while you focus on the work.

  • zig

    General-purpose programming language and toolchain for maintaining robust, optimal, and reusable software.
