  • Clowd.Squirrel

    Quick and easy installer and automatic updates for desktop applications

    A few months ago I experimented with Clowd.Squirrel (https://github.com/clowd/Clowd.Squirrel) and it's really nice and easy to use. Unfortunately I had to disable delta packages because windows defender slowed down the update process of delta packages tremendously.

    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.
