Top 23 Devops Open-Source Projects

  • GitHub repo netdata

    Project mention: Collection of manuals, cheatsheets,blogs,one-liners,CLI/web tools | news.ycombinator.com | 2021-02-19
  • GitHub repo Kong

    🦍 The Cloud-Native API Gateway

    Project mention: Making API keys | reddit.com/r/golang | 2021-04-14
  • GitHub repo Sentry

    Sentry is cross-platform application monitoring, with a focus on error reporting.

    Project mention: Logger implementation in Angular Applications | reddit.com/r/Angular2 | 2021-04-18

    Does your company not have some kind of tool in place already? Something like https://sentry.io ? Because TBH pitching something like that would be my first step. Rolling your own is rarely worth it in my experience. If this is a personal project or something, all of these services have free tiers and almost all of them have an Angular guide where you can install an npm package and be collecting logs in under an hour.

  • GitHub repo Gitea

    Git with a cup of tea, painless self-hosted git service

    Project mention: GitHub Reinstated YouTube-DL but Restoring Forks Is Apparently a Problem | news.ycombinator.com | 2021-04-17

    The gogs maintainer currently seems to not be doing much with it and seems to be ignoring security reports. I would probably recommend the gitea fork instead.


  • GitHub repo Dokku

    A docker-powered PaaS that helps you build and manage the lifecycle of applications

    Project mention: Good resources on self hosting (VPS)? | reddit.com/r/webdev | 2021-04-13

    Project mention: LF: Technical skills advice when moving from corporate to startup | reddit.com/r/SoftwareEngineering | 2021-04-17

    install and run Jenkins ( www.jenkins.io )

  • GitHub repo Gor

    GoReplay is an open-source tool for capturing and replaying live HTTP traffic into a test environment in order to continuously test your system with real data. It can be used to increase confidence in code deployments, configuration changes and infrastructure changes.

    Project mention: How To Find Performance Issues Before Deploying | reddit.com/r/sre | 2020-12-29

    Not OP, but that is the idea. I use this tool for it, as it is dead-simple to get running and fairly configurable: https://github.com/buger/goreplay

  • GitHub repo lens

    Lens - The Kubernetes IDE

    Project mention: Ask HN: What's your absolute favorite tech stack, after having tried others? | news.ycombinator.com | 2021-04-10

    - Lens (a Kubernetes IDE, https://k8slens.dev/ )

  • GitHub repo act

    Run your GitHub Actions locally 🚀

    Project mention: Is There Any Fork Of Bocker Alive? | reddit.com/r/linuxquestions | 2021-04-20

    A podman rest API was released a few months ago that lets you use the docker client with podman. That might not seem important, but there are some tools out there that use the docker API directly that couldn't previously work with podman (such as running github actions locally with "act").

  • GitHub repo lynis

    Lynis - Security auditing tool for Linux, macOS, and UNIX-based systems. Assists with compliance testing (HIPAA/ISO27001/PCI DSS) and system hardening. Agentless, and installation optional.

    Project mention: What is system hardening? | reddit.com/r/Linuxadministrators | 2021-04-15

    Use a security tool like Lynis to perform a regular audit of your system. Any findings are showed on the screen and also stored in a data file for further analysis. With an extensive log file, it allows to use all available data and plan next actions for further system hardening.

  • GitHub repo devops-exercises

    Linux, Jenkins, AWS, SRE, Prometheus, Docker, Python, Ansible, Git, Kubernetes, Terraform, OpenStack, SQL, NoSQL, Azure, GCP, DNS, Elastic, Network, Virtualization. DevOps Interview Questions

    I think the link you're looking for is https://github.com/bregman-arie/devops-exercises

  • GitHub repo watchtower

    A process for automating Docker container base image updates.

    Project mention: Updating containers with Watchtower. | reddit.com/r/docker | 2021-04-17

    This is covered in the docs and is pretty easy to find.

  • GitHub repo Openshift Origin

    Conformance test suite for OpenShift

  • GitHub repo sops

    Project mention: sops is an editor of encrypted files for gitops secrets | reddit.com/r/programming | 2021-04-19
  • GitHub repo Chef

    Chef Infra, a powerful automation platform that transforms infrastructure into code automating how infrastructure is configured, deployed and managed across any environment, at any scale

  • GitHub repo webhook

    webhook is a lightweight incoming webhook server to run shell commands

    Project mention: Automated git pull in a VPS environment | reddit.com/r/git | 2021-03-11

    I use webhook for this and configured my github repo to send a webhook to it every time i push. Works perfect.

  • GitHub repo Flyway

    Flyway by Redgate • Database Migrations Made Easy.

    Project mention: Database CICD suggestions? | reddit.com/r/devops | 2021-03-30

    flyway is pretty great and has an open source, free version but you also need to make sure that from a development point of view db modifications are backwards compatible for at least a few releases, the thread u/arav linked has a lot of good advice outside of tooling.

  • GitHub repo argo-cd

    Declarative continuous deployment for Kubernetes.

    Project mention: Configuring ArgoCD on Amazon EKS | dev.to | 2021-04-17
