  • InfluxDB - Power Real-Time Data Analytics at Scale
  • WorkOS - The modern identity platform for B2B SaaS
  • SaaSHub - Software Alternatives and Reviews
  • Hugo

    The world’s fastest framework for building websites.

    You can try Pico CMS. But if you have the time, try Hugo. The latter has a learning curve, and the docs are frustratingly non-beginner friendly, but once you get the basics, there is no going back!

  • eleventy 🕚⚡️

    A simpler site generator. Transforms a directory of templates (of varying types) into HTML.

    11ty is dead simple, uses no JavaScript frameworks. It's basically a glorified copy/paste and include process which is often all you need.

  • InfluxDB

    Power Real-Time Data Analytics at Scale. Get real-time insights from all types of time series data with InfluxDB. Ingest, query, and analyze billions of data points in real-time with unbounded cardinality.

  • Pico

    Pico is a stupidly simple, blazing fast, flat file CMS. (by picocms)

    You can try Pico CMS. But if you have the time, try Hugo. The latter has a learning curve, and the docs are frustratingly non-beginner friendly, but once you get the basics, there is no going back!
