GAuth can do cloud sync, why finetune? when you can build LLM, track object in video, Opera makes a comeback and more

👋🏻 Hola! Welcome to the #5 edition of Nibble.
RIP Legit Torrents 2005-2023 (so, officially, the way to stop torrents chosen by the legal team is to DDoS and null route them)
Google Authenticator finally now supports cloud sync (after years of making a market for Authy! GAuth is back in the game, No, I'm not crying, you are!)
🦄 Replit goes spitting rainbows, it's a Unicorn now! (yay!).
They also announced replit-code-v1-3b, their LLM that spits out code. (Code Whisperer, Copilot, Bard, and Family keep getting bigger)
🛰️ Elon (SpaceX) launching first ever 5G Satellite (It is reportedly the first satellite in low Earth orbit (LEO) to operate on 5G)
Slack launched new Automation APIs for everyone (now you can make better integrations and apps with Slack, it's free till Oct '23 for everyone)
W&B announces PromptOps (easily debug, log, and monitor your LLM APIs)
Remember Opera Browser? Well, they are coming back with an AI-first browser, Opera One (truth be told, its yet another Chromium fork, painted up with modern designs, and some default stuff on the left sidebar, notice the default ChatGPT, ChatSonic, and some communication apps pinned by default.)
Wild World & Web
😵💫 Gravity may have shaken space-time so hard that it spontaneously created radiation (light). [Article] (every day we get closer to the secret sauce of this universe and farther away from God)
Floor 796, is an ever-expanding animation scene showing the life of the 796th floor of the huge space station! The goal of the project is to create as huge an animation as possible, with many references to movies, games, anime, and memes. (I found Dr. Hugh from House treating the back of Kakashi Sensei from Naruto 🤯)
Catch up 🤓
You can now A/B test your YouTube Video Thumbnails [Tool Link]
📅 YC Summer Conf 2023, (June 17) If you are a student in the Bay area this summer, apply for this and meet the folks from YC (Prez & CEO, founders, and more)
Bard now helps you code (another bot joins the party to help humans write more bots, it ain't as good as almighty Co-pilot, but they are catching up!)
NextJS revamped its landing page, adding two Rust Logos to ensure people understand the "blazingly fast" thing.
Will coding jobs exist in the future?
Well, Matt Welsh says "no more than 3 years", it'll change as we know it and Co-pilot might soon take the main seat.
👀 Code Reviews are hard, but the best way to learn uncharted code, apart from breaking it. Kamran (the person behind Developer Roadmaps) released a quick new guide on how to Review Code
🎓 OG AI Instructor Andrew Ng releases the "Prompt Engineering for Developer" course.
Egypt is in North Africa, the Middle East, and Asia [Article].
Not every place gets the privilege to be part of three landmass regions. (those crazy aliens didn't make the Pyramids at those co-ordinates, for no reason)
Apptwice in only develop mode [SO Link] (for ~15 mins, it was very confusing, I spun up a fresh CodeSandbox to check and found this out.)
New in town 👀
Supaglue - The Open Source Unified API for CRM integrations
AI Marketplace - A platform where you can create prompts and earn commissions.
Lamini - Fine-tuning is stale, make your LLM instead.
Map of Reddit - if you ever found it difficult to explore Reddit (any human should) this tool gives you beautiful
Jellylade - An app that lets you turn your screenshots into beautiful posts with device frames
Programmable Search Engine - This tool by Google provides you the ability to add top-level filters and then use an API to make custom searches, which are most relevant to you or your end user.
Cool OSS Projects 🤌🏻
Track Anything - It's more or less now a ritual to talk about SAM (sometimes Altman, sometimes the model by Meta) in every edition. This cool project lets you track and segment objects in a video, it uses SAM (the model) and XMem
art-of-command-line - A one-page README to master CLI commands. (but yeah who needs it after Copilot CLI? Well, trust me, I have been using it for 2 months now, and it is better if you learn these basics)
cobe - 5kb WebGL Globe Lib, which improves perf by >60%. (How it was made?) (optimizations are hard, and UI optimizations are harder, as it involves engines and renderers beyond your scope of tasks, so when you hear WebGL & optimizations in the same line, you gotta respect that.)
