    UCI chess engine

    But I think these particular examples walk right into the original article's point. Especially chess engines. Chess engines are better today because they still use close-to-the-metal languages and put a priority on benchmarking and optimization.

  • libCat

    🐈‍⬛ A runtime for C++23 w/out libC or POSIX. Smaller binaries, only arena allocators, SIMD, stronger type safety than STL, and value-based errors!

  • Sonar

    Write Clean C++ Code. Always.. Sonar helps you commit clean C++ code every time. With over 550 unique rules to find C++ bugs, code smells & vulnerabilities, Sonar finds the issues while you focus on the work.

  • Monocypher

    An easy to use, easy to deploy crypto library

    That's cheating. I generally keep myself to at most one side effect per line. See my code.
