Stars - the number of stars that a project has on GitHub. Growth - month over month growth in stars.
Activity is a relative number indicating how actively a project is being developed. Recent commits have higher weight than older ones.
For example, an activity of 9.0 indicates that a project is amongst the top 10% of the most actively developed projects that we are tracking.

Nginx – The Architecture of Open Source Applications

> As a relatively young dev, the idea of a "web server" as a standalone binary that serves your application (vs a library that you use to write your own "server") feels strange.
In my eyes, the ideal setup is one that's layered: where you have an ingress that's basically a load balancer that also ensures that you have SSL/TLS certificates, enforces rate limits, perhaps is used for some very basic logging, or can optionally do any URL rewriting that you need. Personally, i think that Caddy (https://caddyserver.com/) is lovely for this, whereas some people prefer something like Traefik (https://traefik.io/), though the older software packages like Nginx (https://nginx.org/en/) or even Apache (https://www.apache.org/) are good too, as long as the pattern itself is in place.
Then, you may additionally have any sorts of middleware that you need, such as a service mesh for service discovery, or providing internal SSL/TLS - personally Docker Swarm (https://docs.docker.com/engine/swarm/) overlay networks have always been enough for me in this regard, though some people enjoy other solutions, such as Hashicorp Consul (https://www.consul.io/), or maybe something intended for Kubernetes or other platforms that you already may be using, like Linkerd (https://linkerd.io/).
Finally, you have your actual application with its server. Personally, i think that the web server should be embedded (for example, embedded Tomcat with Spring Boot) or indeed just be a library that's a part of the application executable, as long as you can update it easily enough by rebuilding the application - containers are good for this, but aren't strictly necessary, since sometimes other forms of automation and packaging are also enough.
The reason why i believe this, is because i've seen plenty of deployments where that just isn't the case:
- attempts to store certificates within the application, each application server having different requirements for the formats to be used, making management (and automation) of renewal a total nightmare

Service discovery — Traditionally provided by platforms like Netflix Eureka or Consul.
1 project | reddit.com/r/PrometheusMonitoring | 11 Sep 2021
For discovery outside of Kubernetes, you can use whatever your configuration management database is to generate the discovery configs. But you might want to look at Consul. The down side to using discovery scripts is the monolithic update lag. I used to have a medium sized setup with Chef and Nagios. It took something like 5 minutes just to run one config cycle. As we transitioned to Prometheus we cut the cycle down to a couple minutes, because we had smaller targeted configs.
HashiCorp Consul: What's the catch?

So, my tech lead has once more had the sweet whispers of HashiCorp blaring in his ear, and to my irritation has decreed that we will be prioritizing bringing Consul into our environment despite pretty much everything else we have being in various states of rotting popsicle sticks and scotch tape.

Harbormaster: The anti-Kubernetes for your personal server

> There is gap in the market between VM oriented simple deployments and kubernetes based setup.
In my experience, there are actually two platforms that do this pretty well.
First, there's Docker Swarm ( https://docs.docker.com/engine/swarm/ ) - it comes preinstalled with Docker, can handle either single machine deployments or clusters, even multi-master deployments. Furthermore, it just adds a few values to Docker Compose YAML format ( https://docs.docker.com/compose/compose-file/compose-file-v3... ) , so it's incredibly easy to launch containers with it. And there are lovely web interfaces, such as Portainer ( https://www.portainer.io/ ) or Swarmpit ( https://swarmpit.io/ ) for simpler management.
Secondly, there's also Hashicorp Nomad ( https://www.nomadproject.io/ ) - it's a single executable package, which allows similar setups to Docker Swarm, integrates nicely with service meshes like Consul ( https://www.consul.io/ ), and also allows non-containerized deployments to be managed, such as Java applications and others ( https://www.nomadproject.io/docs/drivers ). The only serious downsides is having to use the HCL DSL ( https://github.com/hashicorp/hcl ) and their web UI being read only in the last versions that i checked.
There are also some other tools, like CapRover ( https://caprover.com/ ) available, but many of those use Docker Swarm under the hood and i personally haven't used them. Of course, if you still want Kubernetes but implemented in a slightly simpler way, then there's also the Rancher K3s project ( https://k3s.io/ ) which packages the core of Kubernetes into a smaller executable and uses SQLite by default for storage, if i recall correctly. I've used it briefly and the resource usage was indeed far more reasonable than that of full Kubernetes clusters (like RKE).
What Is a Service Mesh, and Why Is It Essential for Your Kubernetes Deployments?
2 projects | dev.to | 17 Aug 2021
With multiple services running, it’s hard to discover where they’re located. The dependencies between multiple services are not always easily found, and new services may be deployed with a new dependency on an older service. Those services can be deployed anywhere in the infrastructure, so what you need is a Service Discovery service. There are plenty available, such as Netflix Eureka or HashiCorp Consul.
Request routing for horizontally scaled services
6 projects | dev.to | 8 Aug 2021
The myriad of request processing middlewares does not end here - there is also the very trendy topic of service meshes that we could cover, but I choose to leave that as an exercise to interested readers, as it is a rapidly evolving and complex space (see: Istio, linkerd, Consul, Tanzu, etc).

“etcd is a distributed key value store that provides a reliable way to store data across a cluster of machines.” etcd etcd provides a way to store data across a distributed cluster of machines and make sure the data is synchronized across all machines.

Deploy a high available etcd cluster using docker

etcd is a strongly consistent, distributed key-value store that provides a reliable way to store data that needs to be accessed by a distributed system or cluster of machines. It gracefully handles leader elections during network partitions and can tolerate machine failure, even in the leader node.
What exactly is the stacked etcd's role and is it a separate entity? is it stored on 3 diff drives?

Automatic Configuration Reloading in Java Applications on Kubernetes
3 projects | dev.to | 2 May 2021
If you need your configuration changes to be rolled out more immediate, there are other options as well. Rather than reading from a properties file, you could use a key-value store such as Consul, etcd, or AWS Systems Manager Parameter Store. While this gives you more direct control of configuration changes, it introduces new challenges. First, managing your configuration as code might require additional tooling, such as defining them as Terraform resources. Additionally, your application will have to know how to speak to the configuration services, including a proper authentication mechanism.
