Top 23 Go HTTP Projects
Fast, multi-platform web server with automatic HTTPSProject mention: Supporting Let’s Encrypt, the nonprofit making HTTPS free for all | news.ycombinator.com | 2021-06-14
first off, let me say, for me. I use Caddy (https://caddyserver.com/) and it just works. You start it, it gets a cert from letsencrypt and starts serving https. So it was (almost) zero work to serve with https.
As for reasons to encrypt
1. Prevents (I think) ISPs in the middle from injecting ads, spyware, phishing scams, etc on top of your site.
2. Prevents 3rd parties from seeing what pages the user is accessing. Some people would prefer that other's can not read over their shoulder and see what they're reading.
I know for me, I'm sensitive to that particular issue to the point that I don't really want to use Netflix, Amazon Prime, Spotify, etc. I really don't like the idea that they're building a profile of me based on what I watch and thinking they know who I am based on that.
It could be as simple as I don't want it known if I'm reading liberal or conservative blogs.
I'm sure others might have other reasons they don't want a 3rd party to know what specific pages they're reading.
ps: I get there are other ways to track me but I'm fairly confident that I'm avoiding most of them via HTTPS, VPNs, Private browser windows, multiple profiles, 3rd party cookies off, ad blockers, etc....
HTTP load testing tool and library. It's over 9000!Project mention: How to measure the number of requests a node.js application is receiving per second? | reddit.com/r/node | 2021-06-05
Run Linux Software Faster and Safer than Linux with Unikernels.
A powerful HTTP router and URL matcher for building Go web servers with 🦍Project mention: What's your favourite (go) web framework? | reddit.com/r/golang | 2021-06-13
Favourite's hard to define, standard library can be a bit bare bones (you need to reinvent the wheel a few times for common tasks) and gorilla/mux can be a bit bloated (it's as close as "batteries included" as you're going to get)
A Go framework for microservices.Project mention: Don't Panic: Catching Panics in Errgroup | dev.to | 2021-01-16
A high performance HTTP request router that scales wellProject mention: What's your favourite (go) web framework? | reddit.com/r/golang | 2021-06-13
For me, the middle ground is best, chi, gin, httprouter are the sweetspot. But that's based on skills, style, and requirements (and experience - I've used all the ones I have mentioned in anger)
Interactive cli tool for HTTP inspection
lightweight, idiomatic and composable router for building Go HTTP servicesProject mention: What is the starting point of web development in golang? | reddit.com/r/golang | 2021-06-17
Here is link number 1 - Previous text "chi"
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.
Cloud Native TunnelProject mention: are there any open source microservice projects for a home user? | reddit.com/r/kubernetes | 2021-05-24
Also if you're looking to self host something checkout inlets: https://docs.inlets.dev/#/
Deploy infinitely scalable serverless apps, apis, and sites in seconds to AWS.Project mention: Ask HN: Does anyone else find the AWS Lambda developer experience poor? | news.ycombinator.com | 2021-04-18
I can also recommend serverless.com framework for local development and running lambdas offline.
AWS provides a docker image for emulating DynamoDB which works great for local dev and will commonly be paired with lambdas.
Another option I have used recently for implementing node web services is https://github.com/apex/up which also has a nice local dev experience.
A fast TCP/UDP tunnel over HTTP (by jpillora)Project mention: Microsoft SE started to flag all chisel versions as a hacking tool | news.ycombinator.com | 2021-06-16
High-performance PHP application server, load-balancer and process manager written in GolangProject mention: Exotic/unknown frameworks? | reddit.com/r/PHP | 2021-05-28
Edit: It can't do hot reload, especially not in docker containers. So unfortunately another one that I can't use. I'd love some genuinely good option beyond php-fpm.
Hetty is an HTTP toolkit for security research.Project mention: Gopher Gold #14 - Wed Oct 07 2020 | dev.to | 2020-10-07
dstotijn/hetty (Go): Hetty is an HTTP toolkit for security research. It aims to become an open source alternative to commercial software like Burp Suite Pro, with powerful features tailored to the needs of the infosec and bug bounty community.

A Cloud Native traffic orchestration systemProject mention: Easegress: An all-rounder traffic orchestration system | news.ycombinator.com | 2021-06-16
Fortio load testing library, command line tool, advanced echo server and web UI in go (golang). Allows to specify a set query-per-second load and record latency histograms and other useful stats.
HTTP(S)/WS(S)/TCP Tunnels to localhost using only SSH.Project mention: SSH Jump host / port forwarder, anonymous service + source + alternative | reddit.com/r/selfhosted | 2021-03-24
Source code: https://bitbucket.org/ValdikSS/dropbear-sshj/ After I made the PoC modifications and setup the server on SSH-J.com, I found functionally better and mature project called sish. https://github.com/antoniomika/sish

Uncomplicated, modern HTTP server
A lightweight & portable faas engineProject mention: I wrote a Twitter Bot using OpenFaaS to avoid missing out on CfP deadlines | news.ycombinator.com | 2021-06-08
I didn't write this blog post, but helped Carlos with some editing. It was great chatting to him about how he planned it out and got it up and running in a short period of time.
If you're wanting to keep your infrastructure lean, you can use OpenFaaS on a single VM with "faasd" instead of K3s/K8s.
Martian is a library for building custom HTTP/S proxiesProject mention: A very simple uptime monitor written with go | reddit.com/r/golang | 2021-04-21
Future plans I have is for these workers to actually run chromedp (https://github.com/chromedp/chromedp) or something similar to generate a har file. Currently the har file can't be generated with chromedp but you could use a proxy like martian (https://github.com/google/martian) maybe to generate this. Then you could results like https://tools.pingdom.com/ (the tool seems not to show each file request for me anymore) for every uptime check and keep stats for this. You are not only testing the uptime then but also the full load time of the page along with checking for other potential problems.
HTTP traffic mocking and testing made easy in Go ༼ʘ̚ل͜ʘ̚༽Project mention: Go Package for Mocking HTTP Traffic: github.com/h2non/gock | dev.to | 2021-04-16
Last time I covered testing in Go I mentioned a package used for testing equality called github.com/google/go-cmp, this time I will share with you a way to mock HTTP traffic using the package github.com/h2non/gock.
