This is GitHub’s collection of .gitignore file templates. We use this list to populate the .gitignore template choosers available in the GitHub.com interface when creating new repositories and files.

For more information about how .gitignore files work, and how to use them, the following resources are a great place to start:

Every time you start a new project you should go to Github Official .gitignore and download the relevant .gitignore.

Public APIs

The Public API’s Github Repository offers a collective list of free APIs for use in software and web development.

If you are looking for a specific API, this is the place to start looking for.

Netdata is distributed, real-time, performance and health monitoring for systems and applications. It is a highly-optimized monitoring agent you install on all your systems and containers.

Netdata provides unparalleled insights, in real-time, of everything happening on the systems it runs (including web servers, databases, applications), using highly interactive web dashboards. It can run autonomously, without any third-party components, or it can be integrated to existing monitoring toolchains (Prometheus, Graphite, OpenTSDB, Kafka, Grafana, and more).

Netdata is fast and efficient, designed to permanently run on all systems (physical & virtual servers, containers, IoTdevices), without disrupting their core function.

Netdata is free, open-source software and it currently runs on Linux, FreeBSD, and MacOS, along with other systems derived from them, such as Kubernetes and Docker.

Easy Installation

To install Netdata from source on any Linux system (physical, virtual, container, IoT, edge) and keep it up to date with the nightly releases automatically, run the following:

# make sure you run `bash` for your shell

# install Netdata directly from GitHub source

Serverless Framework Primates.dev

The Serverless Framework – Build applications comprised of microservices that run in response to events, auto-scale for you, and only charge you when they run. This lowers the total cost of maintaining your apps, enabling you to build more logic, faster.

The Framework uses new event-driven compute services, like AWS Lambda, Google Cloud Functions, and more. It’s a command-line tool, providing scaffolding, workflow automation and best practices for developing and deploying your serverless architecture. It’s also completely extensible via plugins.


  • Supports Node.js, Python, Java, Go, C#, Ruby, Swift, Kotlin, PHP, Scala, & F#
  • Manages the lifecycle of your serverless architecture (build, deploy, update, delete).
  • Safely deploy functions, events and their required resources together via provider resource managers (e.g., AWS CloudFormation).
  • Functions can be grouped (“serverless services”) for easy management of code, resources & processes, across large projects & teams.
  • Minimal configuration and scaffolding.
  • Built-in support for multiple stages.
  • Optimized for CI/CD workflows.


Here is a list Serverless Examples for different applications


Hyper is a beautiful and extensible experience for command-line interface users, built on open web standards. In the beginning, our focus will be primarily around speed, stability and the development of the correct API for extension authors.
