Issue #5

Sorry for the late issue! I've been busy with moving apartments 😌 But we have some cool projects like a NodeJS Framework made by Indonesian developer!


Plumier is an opinionated Node.js Rest Framework created by I Ketut Sandiarsa where you write your code in TypeScript. It seems like it can speed up API server development since it has many built-in functionalities like automatic data type conversion, validators, parameter binding, route generation, and many more. I might use this for my next project. Thanks to Wayan Jimmy for submitting this project!


Aksara UI is a design system from implemented in React. It has many components which you can preview in its storybook.


Beda is a golang library to detect differences or similarities between two words or string. Created by Ferdinand Neman from Hyperjump, it contains implementation of 3 algorithms for detecting word differences. And if you're up to a challenge, you can help implement one more algorithm! 😉



Karyakarsa is like Patreon for Indonesian creators created by Ario Tamat. As a creator, you can be supported by your fans financially and receive the payment through GoPay, OVO, and bank transfer.
