    > Iteration speed and blazing fast automated tests.

    Wholeheartedly agreed!

    It is also nice to have that additional assurance of being able to self-host things (if ever necessary) and not being locked into a singular implementation. For example, that's why managed database offerings generally aren't that risky to use, given that they're built on already established projects (e.g. compatible with MySQL/MariaDB/PostgreSQL).

    MinIO is pretty good, but licensing wise could become problematic if you don't work on something open source but ever want to run it in prod. Not really what this discussion is about, but AGPL is worth mentioning:

    That said, thankfully S3 is so common that we have alternatives even to MinIO available, like Zenko and Garage both of which are good for both local development as well as hosting in whatever environments necessary.

  • mqtt-to-kafka-bridge

    Move your messages from MQTT to Apache Kafka in real-time :rocket:

    Project mention: Show HN: DriftDB is an open source WebSocket back end for real-time apps | | 2023-02-03

    MQTT-over-websocket does exist, and most MQTT brokers support it (Mosquito, AmazonMQ etc.). You're right about the compaction - MQTT doesn't have anything in it's protocol about compaction, and I don't know of any brokers that implement it. Having said that, you could use an MQTT-kafka bridge.

    Something like Mosquito + + Redpanda in a docker image would work, though obv. this might be a bit overkill for most. Having said that, it does open many new avenues for interaction at scale. You pays your money...
