GitHub Action: image-checker

Ensure that your Kubernetes cluster stays up and running by using this GitHub action. This action helps prevent failures that can occur when an image version does not exist, which can cause the cluster to run out of resources silently. By using this action, you can catch and address invalid images before they can cause problems.

Build in a weekend. Scale to millions?

Supabase claims to be a Firebase alternative and offers a Postgres database, Authentication, instant APIs, Edge Functions, Realtime subscriptions, and Storage. While Firebase currently offers additional features such as Firebase ML, Crashlytics, and Cloud Messaging, Supabase shines with lower costs, no vendor lock, a relational database, and performance. And actually, it was a pleasure to work with supabase so far.

Detox for your React-Native App

When it comes to building apps, software testing is critical. It assures the quality of the product and satisfies the customers as well as the users. In the web development world, end-to-end testing is a widely adopted technique and because of tools like Cypress, Puppeteer and Playwright it is also easy to do. But when it comes to mobile applications, end-to-end testing is not so common. My guess is that many app developers are discouraged by the setup and configuration needed to add end-to-end testing to their apps.
