    To implement service discovery in our GoLang microservice we will use GoKit, a toolkit for microservices that provides support to auth, log, service discovery, tracing and more. For this starter code the mod already installed, you can skip this step

    5. kit. The kit framework is a programming toolkit for building robust, reliable, and maintainable microservices in Golang. It is a collection of packages and best practices that offer businesses of all sizes a thorough, reliable, and trustworthy way to create microservices. Go is a fantastic general-purpose language, but microservices need some specialized assistance. As a result, the kit framework offers infrastructure integration, system observability, and Remote Procedure Call (RPC) safety. Golang is a first-class language for creating microservices in any organization thanks to its composition of numerous closely related packages that together form an opinionated framework for building substantial Service-Oriented Architectures (SOAs).It was created with interoperability in mind, and developers are free to select the platforms, databases, components, and architectural styles that best suit their needs. The disadvantage of using go-kit is that it has a high overhead for adding API to the service because of how heavily it relies on interfaces. Documentation Link: https://github.com/go-kit/kit

    go-micro seems like it does a bit too much, like service discovery and balancing within the framework when that's likely better handled by an Envoy/Istio.

    I think the more interesting aspect of this is the framework being used: https://github.com/micro/micro

    I haven't dug into it at all yet, but at a glance it looks like it's aiming to do something similar to what Go kit (https://gokit.io/) or Finagle (https://twitter.github.io/finagle/) does, where it gives you a nice abstraction for defining your "service" and then handles all the supplementary aspects (service discovery, serialization, retry/circuit breaker logic, rate limiting, hooks for logging, tracing, and metrics, etc) so you don't have to build those from scratch every time.

    I don't know if any of those other frameworks could really be considered very "successful" outside the original organizations they were built for (it seems like the industry has bet more on service meshes and API gateway products), but I'd probably be more inclined to start with one of them than making a new framework.
