What is your favorite open source project?

Gearing up for Hacktoberfest here. Aren't you!?

I'm sure I'm not alone in just jumping on GitHub come October and plucking the first few projects I find interesting. Instead, I'd love to hear what projects people can't live without and hope I can help this time around.

Personally, there are quite a few I depend on for day-to-day smooth workflows git-reflow, rubocop/standard, rspec, rails, ruby. What about you?

Don’t know how I’d cope without Laravel. It makes php development rock!

I wish Laravel was as popular back in my PHP days. Instead, I was forced into Joomla and Drupal. Symphony was fairly decent at least.

Are there any specific projects related to Laravel you love as well?

I seem to use at least one Spatie package in each Laravel project. Usually Laravel permissions or activity log.
github.com/spatie

Created an online tool to query JSON objects.

I will look to create a contribution guide and issues tagged as hacktoberfest

An Animated Guide to Node.js Event Loop

Node.js doesn’t stop from running other operations because of Libuv, a C++ library responsible for the event loop and asynchronously handling tasks such as network requests, DNS resolution, file system operations, data encryption, etc.

What happens under the hood when Node.js works on tasks such as database queries? We will explore it by following this piece of code step by step.
