Today, I shipped the first major release of , an open source Deno module that can be used to check if a password fulfils all the preset criteria.
The input password can also be tested against 10000 most common passwords used across the internet.

So I recently came across , a cleaner version of built directly from source and minus the telemetry shit.

Tried it out and might be placebo but Codium seems snappier than Code.

Was helping out a friend with some code, ended up creating a package.

It uses to detect faces from an image and crops the faces out.

One of the use cases of this package can be creating thumbnails/previews showing just the faces from the original picture.

P.S. - The pre-release version is out now. More enhancements coming soon.
