  • Appwrite - The Open Source Firebase alternative introduces iOS support
  • SonarLint - Clean code begins in your IDE with SonarLint
  • Scout APM - Less time debugging, more time building
  • excalidraw

    Virtual whiteboard for sketching hand-drawn like diagrams

    I use excalidraw for almost all of my design work. It's a really lightweight and simple vector based note app that runs in your browser.

  • vim-notgrep

    Vim plugin for alternative search programs like ack or csearch.

    Use in your text editor to quickly search large code bases with regex. Sift through APIs, find words you only vaguely remember, refactor Lua (or c#/++ renames since it tends to be faster than Visual Assist), etc.

  • 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!

  • unity-findrefs

    A reference finding package for Unity.

    Find Unity references by searching the project by guid. Lightspeed compared to the built-in find refs and more comprehensive too.
