    A microservices API Gateway built on top of Express.js

    Project mention: How to choose the right API Gateway | | 2022-11-22

    Next, review deployment complexity such as DB-less versus database-backed deployments. For example, Kong does require running Cassandra or Postgres. Apigee requires Cassandra, Zookeeper, and Postgres to run, while other solutions like Express Gateway and Tyk only require Redis. Apache APISIX uses etcd as its data store, it stores and manages routing-related and plugin-related configurations in etcd in the Data Plane.

    Project mention: RFC: A Full-stack Analytics Platform Architecture | | 2022-06-02

    A complex codebase needs to be kept as simple as possible. In Predecos, one way this is done is through use of full-stack JavaScript, meaning developers only need experience with one language to maintain the codebase. Some differences exist in NodeJS when compared with browser-based JavaScript but those are minor compared with having to work in multiple languages. Front-end and back-end dependencies are also kept as uniform as possible. For example, Mocha and Chai are used in both the front-end and back-end meaning experience with said tools enables development in either. Developer setup and deployment should also be straightforward. Predecos uses Helm v3.8.2 to trigger one-click deployment of all the microservices. After doing this and setting a couple environment variables, one can easily start the front-end by using yarn run start then they are ready for development. This is also valuable when doing a deployment. When CircleCI went down, the impact was slight because automated deployment and manual deployment were very similar. All that was required was modifying the CircleCI config for the terminal, building the necessary docker images manually, pushing those images and running helm upgrade. A simple and fast mitigation that saved a lot of time. Diverging from simplicity was sometimes necessary though. Some may argue that use of Kubernetes makes the codebase difficult to understand by virtue of its high learning curve. However, the stability, reliability, documentation and wide-spread adoption of Kubernetes made it hard to resist. Google Cloud Platform (GCP), Amazon Web Services (AWS), Microsoft Azure and DigitalOcean all have Kubernetes offerings. This means applications developed on Kubernetes are largely portable from one cloud provider to another. Predecos uses DigitalOcean’s managed Kubernetes product because it is low-cost when compared to the other options. Should the desire for features such as, for example, encryption at rest arise, one option would be to migrate to Google Kubernetes Engine (GKE). Some modifications would be necessary but because Predecos is in a proof-of-concept (PoC) state and minimal data has been stored that migration would likely be simple.
