New CouchDB 2.x metrics & monitoring solution (see thread)
Joan Touzet introduces a solution (currently in beta) that’s fast, has fixed-memory, and provides a web console for people who might not have a fully-fledged metrics solution already. It also acts as a statsd server that can feed into many popular time-series database backends, such as graphite, influxdb, opentsdb and prometheus.

CouchDB + React, part 2 (hooray!) (see thread)
So the good news is that Facebook have decided to relicense React
to the MIT license as of v16. This gets us out of having to completely
replace React in our code base.
