Observations

  • The “CATS” project from the Java category looks very interesting to try especially if you are involved in API development or testing.
  • The “sniffnet” project from the Rust category has shown extreme growth in November.
  • I personally found the “Hurl” project from the Rust category worth trying. It seems a very easy way to script HTTP communications and create test scenarios. It is like cURL but with assertions.
  • The “Ruff” project from the Rust category is a great example of when one programming language can help another. In this case, fast Rust code helps avoid mistakes in Python code.
