💻 🤯 Awesome F/OSS #41
Authentik for Authentication (AuthN), rapid_typing for keyboard training and getting faster, and Fugu for product analytics.
Three awesome Free and Open Source projects for you to check out this week:
Authentik (code) is an Authentication ("AuthN") glue library that makes it easy to improve your security. Whether it's adding SSO in front of some applications, or acting as an OpenID provider, it's a great relatively light-weight alternative to tools like Keycloak that can be quite cumbersome.
rapid_typing is an obscenely simple faster typing application that helps you practice typing. While the project hasn't seen any commits since 2017 and the demo is down (previously hosted on Heroku, likely on the now-removed free tier), but it's worth looking at if you want a bare-bones, minimal self-hosted tool for improving your typing.
Fugu (code) provides simple, privacy-friendly, open source and self-hostable product analytics. While many tools claim to be Google Analytics alternatives, one of the things Fugu really gets right is properly doing "product analytics" – Going beyond simple view tracking to help you figure out how users are using your (web) software.
Quite the span this week (as usual)! As always, thanks for reading, and make sure to support these projects (whether via Github star, donations or word-of-mouth), and get more recognition to awesome projects.
