    A network filesystem client to connect to SSH servers

  • machine-config

    NixOS configuration for all my machines

    A (better?) alternative to sshfs is Syncthing, which works somewhat like a self-hosted Dropbox; it automatically synchronizes a subtree between computers. I've used it for years, with no problems at all. Maybe it won't handle concurrent edits to the same file well, but that's not something I do.

    Meanwhile, the hung mount problem in sshfs can be more or less fixed by giving it the right mount options; perhaps something along the lines of will be helpful.

  • 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.

  • sshfs

    A network filesystem client to connect to SSH servers (by andy0130tw)

    Shameless plug: I used sshfs at work for about 3 years, and I made a fork for myself, featuring a persistent cache layer on metadata caches... I really appreciate the project, but I am not confident enough to maintain it.

  • active-forks

    Find active github forks of a repo

    Yeah, there is this tool:

    I'm really surprised Github doesn't leverage their data for better discovery. Instead you get forks that are second-class citizens and should never be used for active development. For example, they don't get watched by default and their code is not searchable.

NOTE: The number of mentions on this list indicates mentions on common posts plus user suggested alternatives. Hence, a higher number means a more popular project.
