The community releasing updates or new Open Source projects cannot be stopped. Here is the top of the best projects with major releases in January according to Github employees. We are sharing a selection for the start of the Fullstack development course in Python.
At Release Radar, we talked a lot about Node projects.js, and here’s another. Nut.js is an interface automation framework for Node.js . It runs on Windows, macOS and Linux and provides a plugin system, so nut.js can be customized to your needs.
The latest update is an even more powerful plugin system, giving users even more freedom of action. In addition, nut.js 2.0 supports the new Apple Silicon chips. Read about all the changes that violate backward compatibility in the release notes.
Front Matter 6.0
Today, many developers work in VSCode. So why not do something that runs directly in VSCode? Front Matter is a CMS running in VSCode for static site generators.
Front Matter gives users CMS capabilities. The latest version adds support for editing data files, support for nested description fields for content types, and more.
Terraform is an open source infrastructure tool for managing cloud services. tsfec is a static Terraform code security scanner running locally on your CI pipelines.
There is a neat, developer-friendly output, as well as checking the correctness of the documentation. By scanning all your templates, tsfec puts development first. Congratulations to TFSEC on its first official release!
In the API era, do you want a modern, user-friendly HTTP client for the terminal? Then pay attention to HTTPie. It supports JSON, terminal coloring, sessions, downloads, plugins, etc.
The latest version supports nested JSON, plugin manager and more. Read about all the features in the tour via the link on Twitter:
Big Book of R 2.0
Big Book of R is a collection of almost 300 books and resources on programming. This is the perfect place to start your journey into R programming. In version 2.0, several long-awaited updates for maintainers have been added.
The resources of each chapter are automatically added and sorted alphabetically. Several automations built into the backend make content research more convenient. Check out this beautiful website, and if you want to contribute, you can do it through Google Forms.
Minimal Theme for Twitter 4.0
Twitter is sometimes overwhelming. A minimalistic theme (or simply Minimal Twitter) is a browser extension that presents users with more options for changing the interface than Twitter itself.
The latest update introduces new pop-ups, even more control and a new Zen mode. Go to the website to download the extension for Chrome, Firefox and Edge.
The latest version is focused around improving the performance of your applications, namely on processing a variety of documents. Read about all updates in the extensive change log.
In Release Radar, we have selected many Typescript projects. Here is one of them. d3-graph-controller is a library for visualization and simulation of interactive graphs. The latest version introduces new configuration options, redesigned API. Read about all the changes in this log.
Not all releases follow semantic versioning. Some use the date instead, for example, PyBaMM version 12.21 was built in December 2021 and released in January. Big releases appear once a month.
Python Battery Mathematical Modeling (mathematical modeling of batteries in Python) uses automatic differentiation and numerical solvers to solve problems in the field of physics of electrochemical DAE models.
Have you ever opened a browser to work, only to find out a few hours later that you were watching videos about cats all the time? If so, you need AnotherPomodoro.
The “tomato technique” was developed by Francesco Cirillo in the late 80s as a way to manage time while remaining productive. AnotherPomodoro is executed in the browser and takes this technique to a new level.
With integrated TODO lists, theme and timer settings, and other display features in three languages, you will no longer get lost among the cats. Congratulations to AnotherPomodoro on the first official release after more than 430 commits!
Hello Wordl 1.0
Wordle is a word game that has taken the world by storm. But this is not the Wordle you know. Hello Wordl is an opportunity to play as much as you want, and with a sub-twist: you can choose a word length from 4 to 11 characters and a difficulty level.
We decided it would be fun to include it in the compilation: it seems that many people play it. Go to the Hello Wordl website and try it yourself. Attention: The game can eat up many hours of your time. If this is the case, it’s probably worth trying another Pomodoro.
