Helped kickstart our external facing Tidelift CLI for clients to use and saw development to – and through – stable 1.0.0 launch.

Written in GoLang, communicates with Tidelift.com so clients can use our features inside their own CI/CD systems, as well as developers using features from their own command lines.

[I concluded development when employment with Tidelift ended, project is still maintained!]

Database backed file storage for when functional testing uploads to S3 (etc) and you don't want to be charged for every actual file storage operation on S3, use this and it will [production-anti-pattern] write to your test database a blob instead.
