Ask HN: What are the best publicly available FAMANG code repos?

Facebook, Apple, Microsoft, Amazon, Netflix, and Google.

Interested in the opinions of people who work there, as well as those who don't.

Best may have different interpretations, so interested in knowing about your criterion for selecting the best as well.

Netflix has open sourced a lot of code that you can look at. Hysterix, Eureka, Titus, etc. Disclaimer, I worked on open sourcing Titus and I think it has some great Java code.

I really like this https://github.com/awslabs/aurora-snapshot-tool

It's a small and simple codebase, that implements a cross account DB backup capability on your AWS deployments.

I think it's an example of wonderfully written infrastructure python code, clear, concise and very easy to understand as a result.

Thanks for sharing something different. Very interesting. Will go through this.

- Zstd compression, fb

- Brotli compression, google

- Clickhouse (highly efficient OLAP db), yandex

- ESBuild (extremely fast js bundler), figma

- TailwindCSS (rapid css styling made ez)

- Caddy (nice auto-ssl for the lazy, also nice proxy)

- HAProxy (highly configurable proxy/lb)

- uWebSockets (highly performant web server with websockets; used by bitfinex, kraken, trello; has uWebSockets.js api for nodejs)

Found this, simple and seems interesting: https://github.com/google/diff-match-patch

Very nice find. One single file, in most languages. Short and sweet.

Thanks for sharing!



Facebook’s folly

>Facebook's folly

Nicely done ;)

Seriously though, it seems to be very well-written, at first glance. Thanks.

uber devs vis.gl, great for visualizations.

Thank you very much for sharing this. Even though I asked for FAMANG, I meant any great code repo worth analyzing.
