Interesting tools

Each week we review 2-3 of the most interesting developer tools. Here's what we featured this week. View the full archive.

incident.io

Manage incidents in Slack.

What we like: Use Slack slash commands & reactions to declare and manage incidents & related tasks. Auto-link to PagerDuty, OpsGenie, and Zoom calls. Auto-generated post-mortem with timeline and follow ups (can be linked to Jira, GitHub, Linear). Custom decision flows to script questions that determine critical tasks. Feedback prompt on incident close sharing how it went (optionally anonymously).

What we don't like: Assumes everything is run in Slack. Only supports Zoom for calls.

✦ Sponsored: All reviews are editorially independent, and partners must meet our selection criteria.

Lazydocker

Docker TUI.

What we like: Terminal interface for Docker (containers, compose, images, volumes) - easy to navigate with keyboard shortcuts and much more responsive than the official Docker Desktop app. Quickly access container stats, logs, and execute commands. Bulk commands e.g. stop all containers. Binaries and packages for Mac, Windows, Linux. Open source.

What we don't like: Cycling through individual panes using the arrow keys is somewhat tedious - quick switch shortcuts needed. Panes are not resizable - long names can be truncated.

dstp

CLI for common website checks.

What we like: Very simple CLI for running ping, DNS, TLS, and HTTPS checks against a URL or IP address - useful for quick troubleshooting. Displays the system DNS records for comparison. Configurable output format - text or JSON. Binaries for Mac, Windows, Linux, and packages for Mac and Linux.

What we don't like: Output coloring assumes you run your terminal in dark mode. Most people probably do, but the Mac default terminal is light mode!
