For me, I've recently discovered just how many great Ruby libraries Andrew Kane maintains....

I've already used several of these and we use some on DEV, but it was great to learn about some ones I had not seen before.

Paweł Kowalski • Edited - minimalistic (and very fast) js test runner. When Jest is too much, pta seems cool. :)

Also, a little bit niche, but alpine.js - - Alpine.js offers you the reactive and declarative nature of big frameworks like Vue or React at a much lower cost.

This is pretty niche, but I think ZigGBA is cool. It's a very-WIP brand new SDK for making Gameboy Advance games with the Zig programming language.

In a similar vein, this GameBoy emulator written in Elm is highly impressive: elmboy.

I've never even owned a GameBoy product myself, I couldn't tell you why I'm so fascinated by these.
