Official Website Discord Follow

GitHub Repo stars Twitter Follow PyPI version

GPT Researcher is an autonomous agent designed for comprehensive online research on a variety of tasks.

The agent can produce detailed, factual and unbiased research reports, with customization options for focusing on relevant resources, outlines, and lessons. Inspired by the recent Plan-and-Solve and RAG papers, GPT Researcher addresses issues of speed, determinism and reliability, offering a more stable performance and increased speed through parallelized agent work, as opposed to synchronous operations.

Our mission is to empower individuals and organizations with accurate, unbiased, and factual information by leveraging the power of AI.

Why GPT Researcher?

  • To form objective conclusions for manual research tasks can take time, sometimes weeks to find the right resources and information.
  • Current LLMs are trained on past and outdated information, with heavy risks of hallucinations, making them almost irrelevant for research tasks.
  • Solutions that enable web search (such as ChatGPT + Webโ€ฆ

4. Swirl

This search engine is unique because on top of getting data off the web you can connect it directly to your database (SQL, NoSQL, Google BigQuery) or enterprise sources(Microsoft 365, Jira, Miro, etc.). It will search multiple content sources and return AI ranked results.

โญ๏ธ Swirl on Github

GitHub logo swirlai / swirl-search

Swirl is open-source software that uses AI to simultaneously search multiple content and data sources, finds the best results using a reader LLM, then prompts Generative AI, enabling you to get answers from your own data.

5. pgvector

Generative AI models can use a special type of data structure called "embeddings" to make any use out of this we need to use a vector database.
With pgvector extension, you can leverage PostgreSQL as a vector database to store and query LLM generated embeddings.

6. Digger

Digger is an open-source alternative to Terraform Cloud. It makes it easy to run terraform plan and apply in the CI / CD platform you already have, such as Github Actions.

Digger is an open source IaC orchestration tool. Digger allows you to run IaC in your existing CI pipeline โšก๏ธ


Community Slack | Schedule a call | Demo Video | Docs

CI/CD for Terraform is tricky. To make life easier, specialised CI systems aka TACOS exist - Terraform Cloud, Spacelift, Atlantis, etc.

But why have 2 CI systems? Why not reuse the async jobs infrastructure with compute, orchestration, logs, etc of your existing CI?

Digger runs terraform natively in your CI. This is:

  • Secure, because cloud access secrets aren't shared with a third-party
  • Cost-effective, because you are not paying for additional compute just to run your terraform


  • Terraform plan and apply in pull request comments
  • Private runners - thanks to the fact that there are no separate runners! Your existing CI's compute environment is used
  • Open Policy Agent (OPA) support for RBAC
  • PR-level locks (on top of Terraform native state locks, similar to Atlantis) to avoid race conditions across multiple PRs
  • Terragrunt, Workspaces, multiple Terraform versions, static analysisโ€ฆ

7. Logstash

Logstash is a free and open server-side data processing pipeline that ingests data from a multitude of sources, transforms it, and then sends it to your favorite "stash".

It's developed by Elastic, a name that anyone would like to add to their resume.

Wasp (Web Application Specification) is a Rails-like framework for React, Node.js, and Prisma.
Build your app in a day and deploy it with a single CLI command!

Why is Wasp awesome

  • ๐Ÿš€ Quick start: Due to its expressiveness, you can create and deploy a production-ready web app from scratch with very few lines of concise, consistent, declarative code.
  • ๐Ÿ˜Œ No boilerplate: By abstracting away complex full-stack features, there is less boilerplate code. That means less code to maintain and understand! It also means easier upgrades.
  • ๐Ÿ”“ No lock-in: You can deploy the Wasp app anywhere you like. There is no lock-in into specific providers; you have full control over the code (and can actually check it out in .wasp/ dir if you are interested ).
