🔝 10 Open-Source Trending GitHub Repositories 📈


I'm more and more amazed by the "Building in Public" approach. So many excellent projects are being created these days.

And there is no better place to search for open-source code than GitHub.

With all the AI boom, no-code, low-code, and new languages being created, it's difficult to follow everything.

I've collected 10 GitHub repositories that are quite awesome and trending, every one of them with a direct link.

Let's dive in.

1. esProc SPL

It's an intriguing, new programming language for powerful data computing, which can work as a high-efficiency data warehouse.

Using esProc SPL, you can run it as an analysis database or middleware, and compute tons of structured or semi-structured data for analyzing massive datasets.

🆙 High performance: Rich computing class libraries with numerous built-in high-performance algorithms.

💰 Low cost: Simplified stepwise code, low complexity reduces resource consumption.

🕸️ Grid-style code: No need to define variables and the code looks very neat with multiple debugging ways.

🔋 Powerful middleware: SPL can be used as a middleware specifically for data computing.

2. screenshot-to-code

28k+ stars and growing fast!

Make a screenshot and convert it into code (HTML/Tailwind CSS, React or Vue, or Bootstrap). Using GPT-4 Vision and DALL-E 3, a truly amazing project!

GitHub logo abi / screenshot-to-code

Drop in a screenshot and convert it to clean code (HTML/Tailwind/React/Vue)


This simple app converts a screenshot to code (HTML/Tailwind CSS, or React or Vue or Bootstrap). It uses GPT-4 Vision to generate the code and DALL-E 3 to generate similar-looking images. You can now also enter a URL to clone a live website!


See the Examples section below for more demos.

4. pocketbase

27k+ stars.

Open-source Go backend in 1 file. Realtime subscriptions, files, user management, Admin UI, and simple REST API.

GitHub logo pocketbase / pocketbase

Open Source realtime backend in 1 file

PocketBase - open source backend in 1 file

build Latest releases Go package documentation

PocketBase is an open source Go backend, consisting of:

  • embedded database (SQLite) with realtime subscriptions
  • built-in files and users management
  • convenient Admin dashboard UI
  • and simple REST-ish API

For documentation and examples, please visit


Please keep in mind that PocketBase is still under active development and therefore full backward compatibility is not guaranteed before reaching v1.0.0.

API SDK clients

The easiest way to interact with the API is to use one of the official SDK clients:


PocketBase could be downloaded directly as a standalone app or it could be used as a Go framework/toolkit which allows you to build your own custom app specific business logic and still have a single portable executable at the end.

What is SuperDuperDB? 🔮

SuperDuperDB is an open-source framework for integrating AI directly with your existing databases, including streaming inference, scalable model training, and vector search.

SuperDuperDB is not a database. It transforms your favorite database into an AI development and deployment environment; think db = superduper(db).

SuperDuperDB eliminates complex MLOps pipelines, specialized vector databases - and the need to migrate and duplicate data by integrating AI at the data's source, directly on top of your existing data infrastructure. This massively simplifies building and managing AI applications:

  • Generative AI & LLM-Chat
  • Vector Search
  • Standard Machine Learning Use-Cases (Classification, Segmentation, Recommendation etc.)
  • Highly custom AI use-cases involving ultra specialized models

To get started: Check the uses cases that we have already implemented here in the docs

Buy Me A Coffee

This is an unofficial project solely intended for personal learning and research. Since the ChatGPT desktop application was open-sourced, it has garnered a lot of attention, and I want to thank everyone for their support. However, as the project progressed, two issues have arisen that greatly impact its future development:

  • Some individuals have repackaged and sold it for profit.
  • The name and icon of ChatGPT could potentially lead to infringement disputes.

Hope you enjoyed the article, if you have some more, amazing open-source GitHub projects, please share them in the comments section!

It's been my goal for a long time to spread a project-based learning approach through the community and having BigDevSoon up and running, an app we've been working on for the last 2 years is a great achievement to us.

You can get in touch with me e.g. on LinkedIn. (I'll be happy to do some more technical writing or look for a coding opportunity!)

A lot of these are not open source, they are source available, but you cannot do what you want with them.

Most of them are MIT/Apache, some with GNU as well. Depending on the use case and uncertainty about licensing terms while adapting the open-source code it's always a good idea to talk to the creators and tell them how you plan to use it :)
