Hacker News tools of the trade

There’s somewhat of a tradition on Hacker News where every few years someone starts a thread about which tools and services startups use and recommend. That tradition has been memorialized and moved to a GitHub repo for posterity and maintenance.

The resulting list of SaaSes and self-hosted solutions is so large that it’s a bit overwhelming at first, but there are undoubtedly some goodies inside for those willing to dig.


A collection of pure bash alternatives to external processes

The goal of this repository is to document known and unknown methods of doing various tasks using only built-in bash features. Using the snippets from this guide can help to remove unneeded dependencies from your scripts and in most cases make them that little bit faster.

I often start out with a bash script, but as soon as things get complicated I ditch it for Ruby. With this collection in hand, perhaps I can get a bit more done without throwing the baby out with the bash water.


A list of organizations that have open sourced everything they do


Some organization/company are taking a bold stance by publishing everything they do under a F/LOSS license, empowering their users. Those organization should be highlighted and promoted through community channels, and this is what this list try to achieve.

Less than two dozen companies in the list so far. Do you know of any that aren’t on there?


Did you like anything in particular about a conference? Let's make a list 🎉

A great idea/initiative kicked off by Kitze:

Did you like anything in particular about a conference? Did you hate anything? Let’s make organizing conferences an easier task.

As a conference co-organizer myself, I know first-hand that we’re always looking to harvest good ideas (and avoid bad ones) from other conferences. Having a community-created list for this kind of knowledge will be super useful. But we need your help:

The initial document is pretty one-sided, biased, and based on my own experience and perspective. It’s probably missing tons of things. That’s why it’s on GitHub and it’s not a Medium article. Please help me cover everything and make this document amazing 😍️

An Awesome™ List of useless and funny dev projects

I bet everybody has heard about popular lists such as awesome-python, awesome-shell, awesome-cms and such and find them incredibly valuable. Well… Awesome Dev Fun list is on the other side of that spectrum. It’s a curated list of awesome funny libs/packages/languages that have no real value or purpose but to make a developer chuckle.

If we can’t have fun (and poke fun at ourselves), what’s the point of it all? Also this list is embarrassingly short, y’all. Gentlepeople, fire up your PR engines…

Explore the peer-to-peer web with Beaker

This repo hosts a curated list of websites and apps that run in the Beaker Browser. Is Beaker new to you like it was to me? Here’s its pitch:

Beaker is a peer-to-peer browser with tools to create and host websites. Don’t just browse the Web, build it.

If you’ve been following the podcast for awhile, you know I’ve been intrigued by the recent efforts around decentralization. The thing I keep saying to people in th space is, “this stuff is too hard for people to use.” Perhaps Beaker is a first step toward making the decentralized web user-friendly…

A curated list of awesome developers who stream 👩🏿‍💻👨🏾‍💻👩🏼‍💻👨🏽‍💻👩🏻‍💻

Yesterday we interviewed Suz Hinton all about livestreaming for an upcoming episode of The Changelog, and she told us about this great list of developers who stream. Each person’s entry includes the topics they stream about, where they stream, and how you can connect with them on the socials.

Suz also may have convinced us to experiment with streaming some of the work we do here at Changelog. Would you hang with us while we livestream coding, audio editing, or even just checking out other people’s open source projects?
