    Had similar goals. Started by writing Go interfaces for it with Go Micro - https://go-micro.dev then opted for the platform service model as you mentioned with Micro - https://micro.dev

    I think whether it's Dapr, Micro or something else, the platform service model with well defined interfaces is the way to go. I don't think a lot of people get this yet so it's still going to be a few years before it takes off.

    This is my library, unfortunately the website is filled with horrible popup ads.

    I spent quite a few years working on a standalone framework called Go Micro which has now been donated to a community - https://github.com/go-micro/go-micro. Ultimately it never really achieved the potential I standardisation I was hoping for e.g something like gRPC.

    Micro is more of an all encompassing platform that addresses not just writing code but running, consuming it, securing it. I've been using it in production for 3-4 years now after a lot of pure OSS development. Still as others are saying it may never reach its true potential without the backing of a big vendor.

  • Connect: A Better gRPC

    Good luck Buf! I spent many years building an RPC framework around gRPC called Go Micro (https://github.com/asim/go-micro). I think one of the biggest issues was just resources to see it through but also my own desire to move beyond it towards a platform and services. I hope you're able to bring some sense to the gRPC world. It's mostly a networking library. The ecosystem around it is too low level. If anything abstractions and more developer friendly tooling would be a massive improvement. No one needs to see or touch the guts of gRPC. I wish I didn't have to peak into the internals but unfortunately that's what it takes to integrate it elsewhere.

    I hope you build something awesome for the community!
