passportSimple, unobtrusive authentication for Node.js.
Highly Customizable
Hard to Use

Ancient authentication library, built in the days when everything was built using tons of nested callbacks in NodeJS. The code works and makes sense, but is often hard to follow. Huge library of plugins that help you authenticate with others. The official documentation is pretty bad, but folks on Reddit have recommended this set of docs to help you truly understand dit: https://github.com/jwalton/passport-api-docs

reactstrapSimple React Bootstrap 4 components
Highly Customizable
Responsive Maintainers
Great Documentation

`react-bootstrap` took super-long to support Bootstrap v4, and this great library came in and filled the void. It has a much more active community than `react-bootstrap` and works great for most purposes!

@react-native-community/camerarollCameraRoll is a react-native native module that provides access to the local camera roll or photo library.
Responsive Maintainers
Great Documentation
Highly Customizable

This package gives you all of the low-level tools you need to access camera roll photos. The maintainer is very receptive to good pull requests - I've submitted 2 personally!

draft-jsA React framework for building text editors.
Abandoned

Draftjs is OK as a rich text editing framework, but honestly, Quill and Prosemirror are probably the strongest candidates. Notably, Draft works poorly on mobile and doesn't support collaborative editing. We ended up using Quill and don't regret it!

http-mitm-proxyHTTP Man In The Middle (MITM) Proxy
Easy to Use

I haven't tried too many other MITM proxies, but this one works well, seems fast enough, and was easy to set up to intercept traffic.

quillQuill is a modern WYSIWYG editor built for compatibility and extensibility.

One of the best rich text editors for the web. Decently well-maintained, works on Android/iOS, and supports collaborative editing. This is what we ended up choosing over Slate, DraftJS, and Prosemirror.

jimpAn image processing library written entirely in JavaScript for Node, with zero external or native dependencies.
Easy to Use
Slow

Pure Javascript image manipulation library that's easy to install and works everywhere, but quite slow. We use `sharp` (which uses the native libvips) to do image resizing much more quickly on servers.
