A high performance HTTP request router that scales wellProject mention: Choosing building blocks to move faster | dev.to | 2021-02-01
Another common reason to decide against using an existing component is when it doesn't satisfy your requirements. For this project, I needed to prioritize the performance of the web server, and so I knew I needed an HTTP framework that performed well across a number of benchmarks, but I also needed some unusual capabilities such as being able to swap out the router in real-time. In the end, I decided on a hybrid approach for the web server, choosing to build a custom framework around the well-loved httprouter, which granted the majority of what I needed, and had some extremely well thought-out integration points that made it easy for me to build on top of it. In the case of the message bus, I also had a requirement of decentralization, which the majority of available projects are not.
A Go framework for microservices.Project mention: Don't Panic: Catching Panics in Errgroup | dev.to | 2021-01-16
Interactive cli tool for HTTP inspection
lightweight, idiomatic and composable router for building Go HTTP servicesProject mention: Release v5.0.0 · go-chi/chi | reddit.com/r/golang | 2021-02-27
To me, software is art, and I intentionally spent so much time to craft chi to the create a router with the absolute best ergonomics and developer experience. With forced-SIV, I'm unable to fulfill this purpose and now feel deeply uninspired. If proposal 44550 is rejected, I will most likely archive go-chi/chi and create a new repository at go-chi/mux and start from v0 and never leave it. https://github.com/go-chi/chi/issues/561#issuecomment-787462275
Cloud Native Tunnel for APIsProject mention: Show HN: Inlets 3.0 RC1 | news.ycombinator.com | 2021-02-05
A fast TCP/UDP tunnel over HTTP (by jpillora)Project mention: Is it possible to ngrok multiple ports to the same host? E.g. host:8080/host:5001 -> localhost:8080/localhost:5001? | reddit.com/r/webdev | 2021-01-25
Use chisel in combination with frp. This is a lot more complicated, but the end result is really the same as localtunnel's.
High-performance PHP application server, load-balancer and process manager written in Golang

A collection of useful middleware for Go HTTP services & web applications 🛃Project mention: Go is not an easy language | news.ycombinator.com | 2021-02-21
Study the generic reader/writer implementations in the io module. (On my system, those sources are in /usr/lib/go/src/io.) The io.Reader and io.Writer interfaces are very simple, but very powerful because of how they allow composition. A shell pipeline like `cat somefile.dat | base64 -d | gzip -d | jq .` can be quite directly translated into chained io.Readers and io.Writers.
Another example of this is how HTTP middlewares chain together, see for example all the middlewares in https://github.com/gorilla/handlers. All of these exhibit one particular quality of idiomatic Go code: a preference for composition over inheritance.
Another quality of idiomatic Go code is that concurrent algorithms prefer channels over locking mechanisms (unless the performance penalty of using channels is too severe). I don't have immediate examples coming to mind on this one though, since the use of channels and mutexes tends to be quite intertwined with the algorithm in question.
