  • Appwrite - The Open Source Firebase alternative introduces iOS support
  • SonarQube - Static code analysis for 29 languages.
  • InfluxDB - Build time-series-based applications quickly and at scale.
  • proposal-pattern-matching

    Pattern matching syntax for ECMAScript

    Courage, though. I have heard rumour that -- if pattern-matching eventually lands -- then language support for ADTs might also be in its distant future (no pun intended) so perhaps you'll eventually get your Futures/Monads?

  • zx

    A tool for writing better scripts

    The automatic flattening of Promise> is a minor inconvenience that I faced recently when working with zx scripts (see the Real-life example section in my other article in this series). The root of the problem was that I wanted to get access to the Promise returned from an async function as zx adds methods on that Promise (and calls it a ProcessPromise) and I was unable to, since it was automatically flattened. This led me to evaluate the Promise API and see how different it is from a traditional Future monad.

  • 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!
