Supabase (YC S20) raises $80M Series B
8 projects | news.ycombinator.com | 10 May 2022
Using thin-backend has been one of the most delightful experiences I've had making an SPA with a simple backend. The developer experience with the generated TypeScript types is particularly great, the DB migrations remind me of Prisma, and knowing I have a standard Postgres db under the hood is comforting. It isn't a large or complex app, but Marc has been super responsive to bugs and feature suggestions so it has been fun to iterate on. You can find the code at https://github.com/ianobermiller/colorcal.
OPA (Open Policy Agent)
Are "Infrastructure as Code" limited to "Infrastructure" only?

Now there are more subdivided practice: * Policy as Code: Sentinel, OPA * Database as Code: bytebase * AppConfiguration as Code: KusionStack, Acorn * ...... (Welcome to add more)

CIAM vs. IAM: What's the difference (2022)
2 projects | news.ycombinator.com | 11 May 2023
CIAM is not nearly as popular of a term as it needs to be. When most developers build apps today, they still look at their cloud provider's IAM or Active Directory for inspiration in design of their customer-facing systems. I think this article is actually understating the complexity. Conway's Law rules all and sometimes your systems and users won't even necessarily be in your control. I urge folks to look into policy engines like OPA and ReBAC systems like SpiceDB rather than reinventing the wrong wheel.
You Broke Reddit: The Pi-Day Outage
3 projects | /r/RedditEng | 21 Mar 2023
At this point, someone spotted that we were getting a lot of timeouts in the API server logs for write operations. But not specifically on the writes themselves. Rather, it was timeouts calling the admission controllers on the cluster. Reddit utilizes several different admission controller webhooks. On this cluster in particular, the only admission controller we use that’s generalized to watch all resources is Open Policy Agent (OPA). Since it was down anyway, we took this opportunity to delete its webhook configurations. The timeouts disappeared instantly… But the cluster didn’t recover.

Mangle, a programming language for deductive database programming
12 projects | news.ycombinator.com | 26 Nov 2022
Thanks for sharing Biscuit, I was collecting examples of authentication policy languages.
Datalog is also the basis for Open Policy Agent https://www.openpolicyagent.org/docs/latest/ , more specifically it's Rego language which is also implemented in go https://github.com/open-policy-agent/opa/tree/main/rego
How to authenticate microservices?
4 projects | /r/golang | 26 Nov 2022
OPA is a full fledged solution as an external auth provider to reverse proxies like Nginx, Envoy or Traefik...etc. It can be a bit complex and overkill for smaller systems. I have a solution called bouncer as a much simpler and opinionated replacement to OPA. Have a look at it, at least it can give you ideas.
Leverage OPA Security Practices with Monokle
2 projects | dev.to | 23 Nov 2022
We believe in validating your work around complex errors before deploying so you spend less time fixing them. So in our Monokle 1.7.0 release we added support forOPA (OPA) to automate how you validate, identify, and fix mission-critical Kubernetes errors.
