A headless, code-first CMS built with TypeScript

This looks very opinionated with the tech it chooses (Node, Express, MongoDB, React, TypeScript). But if you like those choices, that probably means you’ll like what they’ve cooked up.

  • Payload gives you everything you need, but then steps back and lets you build what you want in JavaScript or TypeScript - with no unnecessary complexity brought by GUIs. You’ll understand how your CMS works because you will have written it exactly how you want it.
  • Bring your own Express server and do whatever you need on top of Payload. Payload doesn’t impose anything on you or your app.
  • Completely control the Admin panel by using your own React components. Swap out fields or even entire views with ease.
  • Use your data however and wherever you need thanks to auto-generated, yet fully extensible REST, GraphQL, and Local Node APIs.

MangoDB – a truly open source MongoDB alternative

The team’s goal is to become “the de-facto open-source alternative to MongoDB.” Here’s why:

MongoDB is a life-changing technology for many developers, empowering them to build applications faster than using relational databases. Its easy-to-use and well-documented drivers make MongoDB one of the easiest to use database solutions available. However, MongoDB abandoned its open-source roots, changing the license to SSPL - making it unusable for many open source and commercial projects.

Most MongoDB users are not in need of many of the advanced features offered by MongoDB; however, they are in need of an open-source database solution. Recognizing this, MangoDB is here to fill the gap by providing an alternative.

This is currently a proof of concept. The concept: a proxy that converts Mongo’s wire protocol to SQL and stores everything in PostgreSQL. Fascinating idea! Will it work?

Deno gets an ORM

DenoDB has a fully-typed API (which is great for editor integration) and supports a whole host of backends: MySQL/Maria, SQLite, Postgres, and MongoDB.

Broad database support is great for library adoption, but as a user I’d prefer something that leans in to a specific ecosystem, which usually lets you squeeze more out of it.

Regardless of that, it’s great to see the Deno community building foundational tools like this.

Mongita is to MongoDB as SQLite is to SQL

Mongita is a lightweight embedded document database that implements a commonly-used subset of the MongoDB/PyMongo interface. Mongita differs from MongoDB in that instead of being a server, Mongita is a self-contained Python library. Mongita can be configured to store its documents either on disk or in memory.

I can’t speak to the implementation, but I love the idea behind this project. Already know and love Mongo? Here’s a way to use it in an embedded fashion with all of the advantages that come with such an architecture…

Is Amazon’s new MongoDB-compatible DBMS really PostgreSQL under the covers?

This is a nice rundown of the technical clues indicating that DocumentDB might be powered by Postgres.

PostgreSQL isn’t the only DBMS that scales writes vertically and reads horizontally via replication, but when you add this all up, especially some of the specific limitations, I think it makes a pretty compelling argument that PostgreSQL is the engine powering AWS DocumentDB.

A boilerplate web app to build your own SaaS product

You can use this web app as a boilerplate for building your own SaaS product. The app has many common SaaS features, so you can focus on the features that differentiate your product.

As with most boilerplates, this is opinionated about its stack, which features:

React, Material-UI, Next, MobX, Express, Mongoose, MongoDB, Typescript

Here’s the full list of features and the live demo.

Open source web app to publish documentation or books

From Kelly Burke:

You can use this web app to write and sell books on your own domain. We use it for our own book, which teaches you how to build the app from scratch: https://builderbook.org/book

Pretty cool. Writing your documentation or book in Mardown is amazing for a lot of writers. The reading experience on the web could be a bit better, but the app comes with all the third-party integrations you’d want to sell your book.

Zenbot

a command-line cryptocurrency trading bot using Node.js and MongoDB.

This is on version 4, so a boat load of effort has been invested in this tool. In light of that, I find this statement from their README funny and somewhat sad:

Zenbot 4 is functional, but is having trouble reliably making profit. At this point, I would recommend against trading with large amounts …
