This page summarizes the projects mentioned and recommended in the original post on news.ycombinator.com

Our great sponsors
  • Sonar - Write Clean Java Code. Always.
  • InfluxDB - Build time-series-based applications quickly and at scale.
  • SaaSHub - Software Alternatives and Reviews
  • NewPipe

    A libre lightweight streaming front-end for Android.

    I used to use NewPipe when I had an Android. It was great for "subscribing" to creators without needing a Google account. Youtube kept breaking it. Don't know if it still works. https://newpipe.net/

  • libredirect

    A web extension that redirects popular sites to alternative frontends and backends

    https://github.com/libredirect/libredirect is a bit over-zealous. Love the idea, but I still want to be able to browse the homepages of the sites.

    After installing the addon and visiting just https://youtube.com I get redirected to https://inv.vern.cc/ that just displays "Our main server's ISP is having issues, even router resets haven't fixed it. We apologize for this long downtime". Visiting https://twitter.com I get redirected to https://twt.funami.tech/ which displays "502 Bad Gateway"

    Not a great experience to be honest. Still, love the idea, but execution is poor at best.

  • Sonar

    Write Clean Java Code. Always.. Sonar helps you commit clean code every time. With over 600 unique rules to find Java bugs, code smells & vulnerabilities, Sonar finds the issues while you focus on the work.

  • FreeTube

    An Open Source YouTube app for privacy

  • NewPipe

    A fork of NewPipe with SponsorBlock functionality. (by polymorphicshade)

    I really <3 the fork with sponsorblock support: https://github.com/polymorphicshade/NewPipe/

    and I don't get why the NewPipe devs are against upstreaming it... kudos to polymorphicshade, updates in NewPipe get handed over pretty fast.

  • murder

    Large scale server deploys using BitTorrent and the BitTornado library (by ervinb)

    https://github.com/libredirect/libredirect is a bit over-zealous. Love the idea, but I still want to be able to browse the homepages of the sites.

  • PeerTube

    ActivityPub-federated video streaming platform using P2P directly in your web browser

  • minitube

    YouTube app

    In regards to alternative Youtube clients. Not sure if it fits your requirements but I've used MiniTube which is pretty decent: https://flavio.tordini.org/minitube

  • InfluxDB

    Build time-series-based applications quickly and at scale.. InfluxDB is the Time Series Platform where developers build real-time applications for analytics, IoT and cloud-native services. Easy to start, it is available in the cloud or on-premises.

  • vitess

    Vitess is a database clustering system for horizontal scaling of MySQL.
