Top 23 Go API Projects
Micro is a cloud native development platform (by micro)Project mention: Why and how we built Distributed with Next.js and Micro | dev.to | 2021-03-26
Distributed was built as a jamstack demo to show how you could leverage M3O as an API backend for rapid MVP development. M3O itself is a cloud platform for API development, built on the popular open source project Micro. Micro enables you to quickly build APIs in Go on the backend and M3O provides simple free hosting of those services.
lightweight, idiomatic and composable router for building Go HTTP servicesProject mention: Feasible to use labstack/echo with a jamstack? | reddit.com/r/golang | 2021-04-02
Quick tip regarding the use of echo. Unlike many other language ecosystems (node, ruby, python, etc.), web frameworks on frowned upon by the go community and not commonly used in practice. Much of the ecosystem is designed to interoperate directly with the http package types... wrapping them with echo will inhibit this interpretability and carry few benefits. That said, routing specifically can be tricky, so checkout the https://github.com/go-chi/chi router.
Scout APM - Leading-edge performance monitoring starting at $39/month. Scout APM uses tracing logic that ties bottlenecks to source code so you know the exact line of code causing performance issues and can get back to building a great product faster.

Tyk Open Source API Gateway written in Go, supporting REST, GraphQL, TCP and gRPC protocolsProject mention: Microservices Design - API Gateway Pattern | dev.to | 2021-01-01
Amazon API Gateway AWS provides fully managed service for creating, publishing, maintaining, monitoring, and securing REST, HTTP, and WebSocket where developers can create APIs that access AWS or other web services, as well as data stored in the AWS Cloud. Kong API Gateway Kong Gateway is an open-source, lightweight API gateway optimized for microservices, delivering unparalleled latency performance and scalability. If you just want the basics, this option will work for you. It is scalable easily horizontally by adding more nodes. It supports large and variable workloads with very low latency. Other API Gateways Apigee API Gateway MuleSoft Tyk.io Akana SwaggerHub Azure API Gateway Express API Gateway Karken D Choosing the right API gateway Some of the common baseline for evaluation criteria include simplicity, open-source vs propriety, scalability & flexibility, security, features, community, administrative (support, monitoring & deployment), environment provisioning(installation, configuration, hosting offering), pricing, and documentation. API Composition / Aggregation Some API requests in API Gateway map directly to single service API which can be served by routing request to the corresponding microservice. However, in the case of complex API operations that requires results from several microservices can be served by API composition/aggregation (a scatter-gather mechanism). In case of dependency of one another service where synchronous communication is required, the chained composition pattern has to be followed. The composition layer has to support a significant portion of ESB/integration capabilities such as transformations, orchestration, resiliency, and stability patterns. A root container is deployed with the special distributor and aggregator functionalities (or microservices). The distributor is responsible for breaking down into granular tasks and distributing those tasks to microservice instances. The aggregator is responsible for aggregating the results derived by business workflow from composed microservice. API Gateway and Aggregation API gateway with added features results in overambitious gateways that encourage designs that continue to be difficult to test and deploy. It is highly recommended to avoid aggregation and data transformation in the API Gateway. Domain smarts are better suited to be done in application code that follows the defined software development practices. Netflix API Gateway, Zuul 2 removed a lot of the business logic from Gateway that they had in Zuul to origin systems. For more details, refer here. Service Mesh and API Gateway Service mesh in microservices is a configurable network infrastructure layer that handles interprocess communication. This is akin to what is often termed as sidecar proxy or sidecar gateway. It provides a lot of functionalities such as:
