    Connect, secure, control, and observe services.

    Project mention: Solving Four Kubernetes Networking Challenges | dev.to | 2022-01-18

    Although enforcing network rules through Network Policies can be complicated, KIC can easily integrate with service mesh implementations like the CNCF’s Kuma or Istio with Kong Istio Gateway, extending the capabilities of Network Policies and guaranteeing additional security.

  • go-kit

    A standard library for microservices.

    Project mention: Boilerplate for experienced devs | reddit.com/r/golang | 2021-12-14

    If you're dealing with microservices then you can also look at https://gokit.io/

  • Scout APM

    Less time debugging, more time building. Scout APM allows you to find and fix performance issues with no hassle. Now with error monitoring and external services monitoring, Scout is a developer's best friend when it comes to application development.

  • go-micro

    A framework for distributed systems development

    Project mention: Go Micro – A framework for distributed systems development | reddit.com/r/CKsTechNews | 2021-12-31
  • dapr

    Project mention: Azure Container Apps - CI/CD deployments (Video Demo) | dev.to | 2022-01-11

    Azure Container Apps is a container orchestration platform for deploying modern applications and microservices. With Azure Container Apps you can deploy your containerized apps without the need to take on the overhead of managing the infrastructure of the underlying systems. This service is still in preview, but provides you with the ability to use your preferred language or framework to build microservices with support for Distributed Application Runtime (Dapr). There's also scaling of your containers with Kubernetes Event-Driven Autoscaling (KEDA).

  • kratos

    A modular-designed and easy-to-use microservices framework in Go.

    Project mention: Show HN: Go-kratos – Golang microservices framework | news.ycombinator.com | 2021-07-19
  • grpc-go

    The Go language implementation of gRPC. HTTP/2 based RPC

    Project mention: Explanation of context in go? | reddit.com/r/golang | 2021-11-08
  • 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.

    Project mention: Thoughts on Code Generator | reddit.com/r/golang | 2022-01-12

    Library that I have tried * [go-swagger](go-swagger/go-swagger) (Generate server & client from OpenAPI Spec) * zeromicro/go-zero (Generate from proprietary API definition format)

  • OPS

    OPS - Build and Run Open Source Unikernels. Quickly and easily build and deploy open source unikernels in tens of seconds. Deploy in any language to any cloud.

  • chi

    lightweight, idiomatic and composable router for building Go HTTP services

    Project mention: chai - a library for type safe http handlers via generics with automatic swagger generation | reddit.com/r/golang | 2022-01-04

    chai is an extension for a few popular http routers (chi, gorilla/mux) that adds support for type safe http handlers via Go 1.18's generics. This allows it to also generate a swagger spec by automatically detecting the request/response types, http methods, route paths and path params.

  • up

    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.

  • Tyk

    Tyk Open Source API Gateway written in Go, supporting REST, GraphQL, TCP and gRPC protocols

    Project mention: One-click trial on TYK API gateway with Tin | dev.to | 2021-12-20

    Traditional way to try an open-source project Tyk is an open source API gateway project. Organizations can control access to the gateway and protect the security of enterprises and organizations. To start with, I chose the traditional way, using docker-compose to install it, which requires the Git and Docker environment on the computer.

  • rpcx

    Best microservices framework in Go, like alibaba Dubbo, but with more features, Scale easily. Try it. Test it. If you feel it's better, use it! 𝐉𝐚𝐯𝐚有𝐝𝐮𝐛𝐛𝐨, 𝐆𝐨𝐥𝐚𝐧𝐠有𝐫𝐩𝐜𝐱!

  • scope

    Monitoring, visualisation & management for Docker & Kubernetes

    Project mention: Interactive Architecture Diagrams | reddit.com/r/devops | 2021-11-15

    There are products that will introspect a k8s cluster and give a diagram like: https://www.weave.works/oss/scope/

  • goa

    Design-based APIs and microservices in Go

    Project mention: Any golang framework or approach to build a single source of truth? | reddit.com/r/golang | 2022-01-12

    I found something similar in goa, but it allows you to generate only http / grpc transport, without the ability to specify the structure of repositories and descriptions of types for message brokers out of the box.

  • NATS

    Golang client for NATS, the cloud native messaging system.

    Project mention: Distributed messaging with NATS | dev.to | 2022-01-20

    Now that our NATS server is running, we'll be using Go and Node.js clients to connect to it for simple demonstration. Not familiar with Go or Node? Don't worry NATS has clients available in over 40 languages!

  • kuma

    🐻 The Universal Service Mesh. CNCF Sandbox Project.

    Project mention: Powering Kubernetes in the Cloud with Kuma Service Mesh | dev.to | 2021-08-16

    Another important change to make is that when you create the cluster, change the Nodes in the "Default pool" to use the COS (not COS_CONTAINERD) image type. There are some underlying issues when using Kuma with GKE, as noted in this GitHub issue, and this is the currently recommended workaround. Otherwise, you will hit pod initializing issues that affect certificate provisioning.

  • encore

    The Backend Development Engine built for Go

    Project mention: REST API: The Fun Way | dev.to | 2022-01-17

    The website does a better introduction to the engine than I ever could, so I'll just say that Encore allows you to write and deploy Go microservices to major cloud providers or their own Encore cloud. And yes, it is open-source, has a free hobby hosting tier and I'm not an affiliate 😇

  • goka

    Goka is a compact yet powerful distributed stream processing library for Apache Kafka written in Go.

    Project mention: Go and Kafka | reddit.com/r/golang | 2021-04-26

    You might want to try: https://github.com/lovoo/goka -- it uses levelDB to keep state from a stream. The application we wrote in-house with goka can process (keeping state) approximately 800+ messages/sec per consumer in a consumer-group.
