Product Hunt Dev

👋Hey there. Welcome back to Product Hunt Dev, formerly WeirdWideWeb. Don’t worry — we’re still covering breakthrough dev tools and weird/cool stuff from the world of engineering. Just with a different name.

As usual, if you have a moment, please send us your feedback at the end of today’s newsletter! Today, we’ll take you through the top reads first, and end with rapid-fire product news. Let’s go!

TOP LAUNCHES

AI tool for codebase migrations + upgrades

The team at Second is on a mission to make it easier to do codebase maintenance, which is a bummer because devs love to spend their time doing codebase migrations and upgrades. ;)

Founder Eric Rowell, who’s worked on everything from Yahoo’s video player to the no-code platform Uiflow, explained the product so simply — and I love simple — so I’ll just quote it here:

“We think it's pretty intuitive – connect to a repo, select a maintenance module, run a job, and get a PR. You have the power to modify the STEP plans in YAML, or create custom maintenance modules as well.”

Devs who have to maintain legacy codebases are particularly excited. The Second team is also working to extend beyond git-based transformations like COBOL and Fortran to support the migration of mainframe languages (“in particular to help modernize banking software…”)

Rowell also points out that Second is not an alternative to AI IDE offerings like GitHub co-pilot. Those are useful for building or debugging in targeted areas of the codebase, while Second’s focus is on codebase maintenance jobs that can be defined with rules and patterns, and operate on hundreds or thousands of files.
