The best things in life are free, some say, and while your mileage may vary, many in the tech world owe their success to open-source software—free and open digital tools that allow developers to train their skills, collaborate to build better products, and leverage the support of a community.

In fact, many successful commercial products are based on open-source software, so staying up to date on the open-source scene can be helpful for knowing what’s happening in the future tech market.

So, what’s hot in the world of open-source software in 2022? Enterprise tech experts at InfoWorld recently compiled a list of the best open-source software products available right now. Here are a few of the standouts:

AlmaLinux

A lot of enterprise software is based on Red Hat Enterprise Linux, which recently had its free version discontinued. Luckily, AlmaLinux, a community distro compatible with RHEL, is free and open-source.

Next.js

This development framework is the definitive full-stack JavaScript tool, connecting a React frontend with a JavaScript server in a seamless build pipeline with automated deployments that simplify the most complex interactions between front end and back end.

Hardhat

This open-source framework simplifies blockchain development, at least on Ethereum, by providing an easy-to-use platform for developing, deploying, and testing dApps and smart contracts. It even includes a local Ethereum testnet.

PyScript

This open-source coding app offers a full Python runtime in your web browser. This lets developers run Python as a fully-functional scripting language on a webpage, pulling from asset libraries to develop complex apps without the need for a Python server on the back end. Although PyScript itself is in its early stages, it points the way for the future of coding.
