  • How we make WebRTC be easier?
    news.ycombinator.com | 2021-10-11
    Hey HN,

    For the past couple of years I have been working on open source software[0] + a free book[1] to make WebRTC easier. I am trying to find the other gaps in the space. Would love to hear what people find difficult about it still!

    Even if you don't have a solution would be great just to get a feel for where people are at in the space.

    news.ycombinator.com | 2021-05-16
    I started (but many many others contributed) to the Go implementation of WebRTC Pion WebRTC https://github.com/pion/webrtc

    Along the way I worked on a Go implemenation of DTLS that gets used on its own a bit https://github.com/pion/dtls

    In another life I wrote Therac https://github.com/sean-der/therac. A PHP debugger that was viewable from a browser. I was a remote at the time (2015) and it was a great tool to use with others.

    I also wrote fail2web https://github.com/sean-der/fail2web a web frontend to fail2ban

  • WebRTC over Asp.Net Core - Any examples?
    reddit.com/r/csharp | 2021-05-07
    I'm currently building a new product with .NET 5 that creates a WebRTC data channel with clients and also sends them video over WebRTC. In preparation, I evaluated the current WebRTC landscape. The gist is that almost all WebRTC implementations are in other languages (usually C++), so native interop is nearly unavoidable if you want to use C#. I ultimately decided to create a small native library (.so file) using the excellent Pion WebRTC library for Go and then created a C# wrapper for it using C#'s native interop APIs (e.g. DllImport, Marshal.GetFunctionPointerForDelegate()). So far this has been working well and I have both data communication and video streams working, but I should add the caveat that I haven't shipped the service to production yet (I'm still a couple months of development away from that).
    reddit.com/r/csharp | 2021-05-07
    I meant to mention: I thought about creating an open-source library for the Pion wrapper, but it's currently quite specific to my application in order to reduce the number of calls needed from C# to Go and vice versa. Perhaps I'll write a blog post in the future, though. In the meantime, the approach I took was to start with one of Pion's examples and then turn it into a static library by using cgo to export functions with C linkage and building it as a shared library like this:

    Your best bet would be GStreamer or ffmpeg. I made a simple example using Pion WebRTC here

  • Do you guys use frameworks with Go for backend development?
    reddit.com/r/golang | 2021-10-08
    Go kit is a good backend development toolkit ... but not a framework.
  • Peter Bourgon: I have been permanently banned from all Golang community spaces
    news.ycombinator.com | 2021-09-16
    I recognize him for his efforts to bring Go to the enterprise world with https://gokit.io/ and public speaking, rooting for Go, when Go was not as prominent as it is today.

    I don’t know the reasons why he got banned, but it is irritating.

  • Scala or Go: Who Wore It Better?
    dev.to | 2021-09-06
    After Go took off at Google and was released to the public, it got really popular as the language of concurrency, which helped in turn to make it the language of DevOps--particularly in concert with Kubernetes, which also emerged from Google. Go has expanded into other domains as well with the CMS Hugo and the microservices framework Go kit.
  • Should I learn Golang or use Ansible to delveop the operators?
    What's great is there are really great patterns to follow out there on github (both code patterns https://github.com/tmrts/go-patterns and examples https://github.com/avelino/awesome-go https://github.com/go-kit/kit and for the app itself, https://github.com/golang-standards/project-layout )... and for me a really naggy mentor who insists everything be "idiomatic go"

  • Show HN: We wrote a book about building business applications in Go
    news.ycombinator.com | 2021-05-13
    Thanks for mentioning this experience -- I was really excited about Go early on but went with other languages after a while so didn't make any huge projects with it (and definitely not at a large employer/go shop).

    Did you have to do a lot of stuff that is DDD-related? Like building out abstractions for adapters and connection points, or did you use libraries that did that part for you mostly? I know of some stuff out there like go kit[0] which is quite pragmatic and does some of the 80% use-cases (serialization, transports, etc) DDD stuff for you.

    I think for the most part it's rare to actually need to write a lot of your own DDD pieces for CRUD-y apps, and the parts where the complexity would be worth it are often already done for you by the libraries/frameworks used.
