We’ve logged enough awesome lists by now that you know exactly what to expect from this repo. So instead of describing what’s inside, I will say that Emma and I will be talking Fullstack D3 with Amelia Wattenberger on January 30th. Join us for the live show or subscribe to JS Party to listen when the episode ships.
If you’re concerned with the amount of data Google has on you, this list of alternative browsers, web apps, operating systems, and hardware may help you ween yourself from the company. Looking at this list, it’s amazing just how much value Google offers in trade for our data. A note from the author:
It’s a shame that Google, with their immense resources, power, and influence, don’t see the benefits of helping people secure themselves online.

From typography/colors to icons/animations and everything in between. This awesome list by Shawn Wang is worth a scan/bookmark.
Self-hosting has always been cool, but I think we’re going to see its popularity continue to trend in 2020 and beyond. (Jump straight to the software development category and go digging for gems.)
Prior to Unicode, international communication was grueling- everyone had defined their separate extended character set in the upperhalf of ASCII (called Code Pages) that would conflict- Just think, German speakers coordinating with Korean speakers over which 127 character Code Page to use. Thankfully the Unicode standard caught on and unified communication.
What follows is an awesome list of Unicode “tidbits, packages, and resources”. And of course there’s a sub-section on everyone’s favorite: emojis
With 35k+ stars, I might be the last one to the party on this awesome repo.
It is the largest compilation, and it is growing every week - currently, more than 80 best practices, style guides, and architectural tips are presented. New issues and pull requests are created every day to keep this live book updated. We’d love to see you contributing here, whether that is fixing code mistakes, helping with translations, or suggesting brilliant new ideas.
freeCodeCamp aren’t the only ones trying to solve this problem. Many of these alternatives are mature and usable today.
It’ll take some time to plumb the depths of this list, but if you’re
desperate searching for a good idea, it might just be worth your while. 🤞
It maybe is even the listing of approximately all startup ideas
If you are a maintainer for open-source projects, add the label
first-timers-only(or similar) to your project and list it here so people can find it.
’Tis the season to be contributing.
This isn’t just an awesome list of resources. The repo IS the resource! If you click through and the content is a bit too dense, start with the latest episode of Practical AI where Daniel and Chris explain many of these concepts in detail.
Since all these projects are open source you can help them and make this world a better place. Or at least you can play something to appreciate the effort people put in them.
I love how they even highlight which games are still playable and how active their development is. A lot of love went into this very excellent resource. Game on!
An organized reading list for illustrating the patterns behind scalable, reliable, and performant large-scale systems. Concepts are explained in the articles of prominent engineers and credible references. Case studies are taken from battle-tested systems that serve millions to billions of users.

Awesome Stacks is a community-curated list of tech stacks for building different applications and features. Each stack in the list has a name, description, and list of a few of the key tools and technologies. Optionally, it links to a tutorial, starter kit or boilerplate that makes it easy to get started with.
Contribute ’em if you got ’em.
On our recent text mode episode, we mentioned learning from other people’s dotfiles. Adam found this awesome-dotfiles repo and included it in the show notes, but I thought I’d log it as well to call more attention to it.
Also, did you like my idea near the end of the show to produce some videos of smart/interesting developers walking us through their dotfiles? Holla back in the comments…
User flows tools, prototyping tools, font tools, animation tools, all the design tools!
A quick scroll through the must-read books and articles on this list made it clear to me that this is a winner. Great stuff inside. Also this quote from Abe Lincoln is on point:
Give me six hours to chop down a tree and I will spend the first four sharpening the axe.
Sounds like he’d be skilled at shaving yaks…
If you’ve been looking for a list of awesome GitHub Actions, you’ve found it — thanks to Sarah Drasner.
Actions are triggered by GitHub platform events directly in a repo and run on-demand workflows as autoscaled containers in response. With GitHub Actions you can automate your workflow from idea to production.
Collection of component libraries for UI toolkits for React, VueJS, Angular, ember. and mithril. Including implementation of Material Design, Fabric, Ant design, etc for each front-end framework.
Recommender systems (or recommendation engines) are useful and interesting pieces of software. I wanted to compare recommender systems to each other but could not find a decent list, so here is the one I created.
Includes SaaS offerings, open source options, academic systems, and more.
This list is so long it makes me think two things: a) VS Code has an amazingly vibrant ecosystem, or b) the curators of this list aren’t doing enough curatin’. We might find the truth somewhere in the gray space…
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.
Awesome resources for the awesome terminal multiplexer we all know and 💚. Tutorials, cheatsheets, plugins, and more.
