Top 23 Go Server Application Projects

  • Caddy

    Fast and extensible multi-platform HTTP/1-2-3 web server with automatic HTTPS

    Project mention: Bluesky announces data federation for self hosters | news.ycombinator.com | 2024-02-22

    Even if it may be simple, it doesn't handle edge cases such as https://github.com/caddyserver/caddy/issues/1632

    I personally would make the trade off of taking on more complexity so that I can have extra compatibility.

  • traefik

    The Cloud Native Application Proxy

    Project mention: Security Workshop Part 1 - Put up a gate | dev.to | 2023-11-03

    We'll use Traefik, an open source cloud native gateway that can plug into a Kubernetes cluster. It has the concept of "middleware" that can process API requests before passing them through to a backend. We can configuring a rate limit for all of our API endpoints by matching on the request path:

  • WorkOS

  • devd

    A local webserver for developers

    Project mention: Creating your own PDF templates (not page templates!) | /r/RemarkableTablet | 2023-06-28

    Your technique is one I would turn towards as a developer who understands HTML/CSS flow so much better than I do any typesetting tool. I actually use a very similar technique for managing my CV and generating invoices for clients; I have a little "static site" generator I've written that takes JSON, throws it through a templating engine, and spits out HTML files. I then host a server in the output folder and print-to-pdf directly from there. This approach seems quite rare; I don't think enough people appreciate just how flexible CSS is or its support for common print-related tasks.
