  • Fornjot

    Early-stage, next-generation, code-first CAD application. Because the world needs another CAD program.

    A custom DSL is not a realistic option (the feature wishlist lists it as "out of scope"). I keep playing with the idea, because I want to work on my own language damn it, and I have probably expressed that in a perfect world, it would be the best option. I do not think it is a realistic option in the real world. Making it as powerful and convenient as something that already exists is just too much work, and Fornjot is already way too ambitious a project.

  • InfluxDB

    Build time-series-based applications quickly and at scale.. InfluxDB is the Time Series Data Platform where developers build real-time applications for analytics, IoT and cloud-native services in less time with less code.
