  • SonarQube - Static code analysis for 29 languages.
  • Scout APM - Less time debugging, more time building
  • SaaSHub - Software Alternatives and Reviews
  • tubearchivist

    Your self hosted YouTube media server

    I've been using TubeArchivist to mirror channels lately. The description and some of the metadata are saved within the TubeArchivist database. The video and optional subtitles get saved to disk.

  • youtube-comment-scraper

    A web client that scrapes YouTube comments

    youtube-dl can't scrape comments if you're interested in those. I once used this, but it appears to be discarded and I doubt it works anymore. I've heard of people getting IP banned for scraping comments, so beware if you want to do that.

  • SonarQube

    Static code analysis for 29 languages.. Your projects are multi-language. So is SonarQube analysis. Find Bugs, Vulnerabilities, Security Hotspots, and Code Smells so you can release quality code every time. Get started analyzing your projects today for free.

  • python-certifi

    (Python Distribution) A carefully curated collection of Root Certificates for validating the trustworthiness of SSL certificates while verifying the identity of TLS hosts.

    certifi comes bundled the yt-dlp exe now so issues with certificates should be rare.
