Top 21 Private Open-Source Projects

  • instagram-web-api

    🤳 Instagram Private Web API client for Node

    Project mention: Instagram Private API WEB- Node | | 2022-06-17

    Simple, easy implementation of the Instagram private web API. Some API reference from jlobos/instagram-web-api Send DM using client from dilame/instagram-private-api

  • session-desktop

    Session Desktop - Onion routing based messenger

    Project mention: Signal impersonation risk? | | 2022-10-27

    Session's reasoning seems much more... cagey. Telling people to recreate their identities themselves sounds a little like the Threema stopgap solution, but it's much sloppier (I can't imagine end users WANT to recreate their account and communicate this to all their contacts via a third party). They're talking about implementing this eventually, but the ticket for doing so was closed right after saying this.

    Project mention: Ask HN: Why is pay so much higher in the US? (or is it?) | | 2022-09-12

    Do some cool open source stuff. Since August 9th, I received about 50 job offers mentioning this repo: Most of them were senior engineer or AI researcher, with a few CTO / co-founder offers sprinkled in. I'm not in the market and this was a bit unexpected to me, but those emails sounded like they would pay well. And most was remote for US companies.

  • .doom.d

    Private DOOM Emacs config highly focused around orgmode and GTD methodology, along with language support for Python and Elisp.

    Project mention: Anyone move from Emacs to Logseq? Why? | | 2022-01-21

    Yes, I moved over to logseq a year ago (my old config). I was using emacs/orgmode as my daily driver for about 2 years, but the struggle of getting it installed/loaded on my work system was becoming more difficult since our IT department decided to add encryption on top of other existing encryption. It would take my system 10 minutes to initially load emacs, where my personal Win10 box with WSL would take a few seconds. Eventually I just got tired of it and was already playing with logseq as a daily driver, so I made the commitment and moved over.
