Tell me about some underrated OSS projects

So, recently I have been exploring more OSS projects to check out. I want to know about some more OSS projects that are in the early stages or are quite underrated. You can also share your own projects, bias is allowed.

I'd say that almost every project under the CubicleSoft GitHub account is vastly underrated:

https://github.com/cubiclesoft?tab=repositories&q=&type=source&language=&sort=stargazers

Approximately 85 all original full blown projects from extensive SDKs to powerful Javascript widgets to system services (e.g. xcron) to plenty of other things. There's something there for everyone.

Have a look to Luos (GitHub and Discord), it's an open-source microservices orchestrator dedicated to Edge and Embedded systems. A kind of Docker, without virtualization and focused on MCU and not CPU.

how about illacloud.com here. u can check out the Github: github.com/illa-family.

the reason i recommand this tool is illa is more flexibe, and this is totally opensource tool, and the UI lab is great to use. anyway, i believe it's very easy to use plz check it out by yourself.

pocketbase, a new headless cms, and realtime database for small to middle size projects. Made with golang it can answer about 2000requests per second, what is plentiful for most projects. on my server it is very stable.

do you want to help to make its backend UI more mobile friendly?

If bias is allowed, I hope you will look at Melville.PDF. Melville.PDF is a completely free, platform independent, and target-independent PDF renderer for dot net.

That sounds cool! I don't really have much knowledge of dot net, but will give it a try once I learn it.

I'd say Skott, which is a fresher, lighter and faster version of Madge!

Then there are also everything related about NodeSecure, a very active organization developing security tools for JavaScript and Node.js!
