    Awesome list. As a former developer and now a mentor for developers, your list is going to save a lot of time for folks.

    A few tools that I'd like to recommend:

    Email:
    https://temp-mail.org/en/ - Temp Mail provides temporary, secure, anonymous, free, disposable email address.

    Books:
    (Shameless promo)
    https://gum.co/softwaredevelopers - Career Guide for Software Developers (written by yours truly)

    Copywriting:
    https://www.grammarly.com/ - The Chrome extension is a life-savers for non native English speakers like myself.

    Templates:
    https://www.templatemonster.com/ - They have a wide variety of templates. Some of them are also free.

    I've noticed a little bit of traffic coming to composable.art from your site. Thank you for listing it :)

    Dense Discovery is a great newsletter for designers but really anyone who's into technology, design and sustainability. One of my fav newsletter hands down

      Thank you, I'll check that out! :)

    I browse a lot of these types of lists—found a few resources I had forgotten about and some new ones too—very nice!

      Thank you! It's definitely not a unique concept but I like to think I have one of the best by going to the effort of using screenshots that give a much better idea of the resource than just a logo/name and a really good search.

      Would love to know if you can think of anything others do better. :)

        Nice overall quality of the resources.

        It’s challenge to beat those github awesome lists across so many domains though. For choosing a product, personally I find that a really good search is what I end up needing to do. For discovery and browsing, lists like yours are hard to beat.

        I like the screenshots, but I like how you included the pricing even more.

    One entire category dedicated to a single tool: WordPress. Nice!

    1. 3

      It does power over 40% of the top 10,000,000 websites after all! My bread and butter too. A bit slim pickings in that tag so far but growing steadily. :)
