  • my office want to migrate to go programming language, what framework is recommended between chi or fiber?
    7 projects | reddit.com/r/golang | 2 Jan 2023
    Fasthttp on which fiber is based has A LOT of drawbacks and I would not recommend for general usage. Among things we found while analyzing it for Dapr: no request-specific context, no HTTP/2 or HTTP/3, almost no support for streaming, and the occasional bug that can’t be figured out.

    One thing that I've seen work is that if you absolutely require the ability to deploy on-prem then using something like OpenShift/Kubernetes as a primitive can work per the parent.

    Even if you rely on streaming like PubSub or Kinesis, the trick is to write interfaces in the application tier that allow for using an on-prem primitive like Kafka and not depending too much on the implementation of that abstraction.

    I've been on a platform team that built these primitives into the application layer, e.g. a blob storage interface to access any blob store whether it's on prem NFS, azure, etc. However I'm looking at newer projects like dapr [1] and have taken them for a spin in small projects. Such a project seems like a favorable way to add "platform services" to a non-trivial app while still maintaining a pubsub abstraction that allows for swapping out the physical backend.

    Furthermore, microservices are often deployed together with service frameworks. For example, Dapr is a popular runtime framework for microservices. It provides a “sidecar” service for each microservice. The microservice accesses the sidecar via the Dapr API to discover and invoke other services on the network, manage state data, and access message queues.
