  • GitHub repo traefik

    The Cloud Native Application Proxy

    Project mention: Traefik 2.5 - What a Mesh! | dev.to | 2021-10-11

    Traefik Labs keeps on doing giant leaps and integrating Consul Connect is another step beyond for Traefik Proxy. This indicates the path of this product is humble but reliable and flexible, with an open-minded philosophy behind that is never scared of comparing and collaborating with other important competitors and actors in the CNCF big landscape picture.

  • GitHub repo istio

    Connect, secure, control, and observe services.

    Project mention: From Monolith to Microservices and Beyond | dev.to | 2021-10-05

    A Service Mesh is a dedicated and configurable infrastructure layer with the intent of handling network-based communication between services. Istio and Linkerd are two examples of implementations. Most implementations usually have two main components: the Control plane and the Data plane. The Control plane manages and configures the proxies that compose the Data plane. Those Data plane proxies are deployed as sidecars and can provide functionalities like service discovery, retries, timeouts, circuit breaking, fault injection, and much more.

  • Nanos

    Project mention: Show HN: Scaffoldly – Serverless APIs on AWS, in Minutes | news.ycombinator.com | 2021-10-21

    Very cool project. It reminds me a bit of https://dapr.io (even though they're obviously quite different).

    One tiny note on the docs - I found it surprisingly hard to find the github repo for the project listed in the docs. I was expecting to find a GitHub link under contributing but only saw a slack channel. I eventually spotted a link in the Roadmap section.

  • GitHub repo go-zero

    go-zero is a web and rpc framework written in Go. It's born to ensure the stability of the busy sites with resilient design. Builtin goctl greatly improves the development productivity.

    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.

    Project mention: Kubernetes-based development with Devspace | dev.to | 2021-10-15

    Modern applications base more and more on micro-services. Splitting large applications into smaller pieces makes the whole more maintainable and easier to develop. However, instead of developing a big monolith, we work on a bunch of tiny applications, making it more challenging to debug and deploy the whole system. Luckily, there are many tools out there to help us out. An interesting comparison of some of them can be found here. In what follows, we want to see how easy it is to do Kubernetes-based development with devspace.
