    Pls check this course: . It includes how to implement sql and key value store. It’s an awesome course

  • materialize

    The data warehouse for operational workloads. (by MaterializeInc)

    Project mention: Choosing Between a Streaming Database and a Stream Processing Framework in Python | | 2024-02-10

    To fully leverage the data is the new oil concept, companies require a special database designed to manage vast amounts of data instantly. This need has led to different database forms, including NoSQL databases, vector databases, time-series databases, graph databases, in-memory databases, and in-memory data grids. Recent years have seen the rise of cloud-based streaming databases such as RisingWave, Materialize, DeltaStream, and TimePlus. While they each have distinct commercial and technical approaches, their overarching goal remains consistent: to offer users cloud-based streaming database services.

  • WorkOS

    The modern identity platform for B2B SaaS. The APIs are flexible and easy-to-use, supporting authentication, user identity, and complex enterprise features like SSO and SCIM provisioning.

  • Ockam

    Orchestrate end-to-end encryption, cryptographic identities, mutual authentication, and authorization policies between distributed applications – at massive scale.

    Project mention: How we built a Swift app that uses Rust | | 2023-12-28

    🚀 Portals for Mac – A macOS app built in Swift that uses the Ockam Rust library to privately share a service on your Mac with anyone, anywhere. The service is shared securely over an end-to-end encrypted and mutually authenticated Ockam Portal. Your friends will have access to it on their localhost! This app is a great example of the kinds of things you can build with Ockam 👉

  • rustpad

    Efficient and minimal collaborative code editor, self-hosted, no database required

  • reth

    Modular, contributor-friendly and blazing-fast implementation of the Ethereum protocol, in Rust

    Project mention: Spin up a private network with Reth using Kurtosis! | /r/ethereum | 2023-08-27

    Reth is Paradigm's new modular and blazing-fast implementation of Ethereum. The Reth team has already been using Kurtosis to spin up interop devnets and find bugs (source and bug fix).

  • raft-rs

  • stateright

    A model checker for implementing distributed systems.

  • rust-rdkafka

    A fully asynchronous, futures-based Kafka client library for Rust based on librdkafka

    Project mention: Rust Cpp Interop via Cxx, Autocxx / any best practices out there | /r/rust | 2023-06-19

    I use this library a lot and it's got some nice touches for how to handle wrapping a C library:

  • rust-crdt

    a collection of well-tested, serializable CRDTs for Rust

  • zenoh

    zenoh unifies data in motion, data in-use, data at rest and computations. It carefully blends traditional pub/sub with geo-distributed storages, queries and computations, while retaining a level of time and space efficiency that is well beyond any of the mainstream stacks.

    Project mention: Eclipse Zenoh 0.10.0 is out | /r/rust | 2023-10-04
  • openraft

    rust raft with improvements

  • Coerce-rs

    Actor runtime and distributed systems framework for Rust

  • delicate

    A lightweight and distributed task scheduling platform written in rust. (一个轻量的分布式的任务调度平台通过rust编写)

  • nanocl

    Distributed System that simplifies the management of containers and virtual machines.

    Project mention: What are you rewriting in rust? | /r/rust | 2023-07-10

    Kubernetes (sorta) It's still in early stages rn but always looking for more contributors!

  • corrosion

    Gossip-based service discovery (and more) for large distributed systems. (by superfly)

    Project mention: Local-first software: You own your data, in spite of the cloud (2019) | | 2023-10-02

    Couchdb/pouchdb remains one of the best: it's super easy to setup and is production-ready, but it's gonna be json docs with no transactions, so it can be limiting.

    Y.js and automerge emerged as solutions combining CRDTs and content transfer, they look really promising. There is a version if that's better for you.

    I've always dreamt of building something on top of Syncthing, ie something that would use file synchronization. It's more versatile and will definitely last longer than anything else, and it has some built-in capabilities for having a third party helping transport but not being allowed to read content.

    I recently came across , a service discovery and state management tool that is working completely p2p. CR-SQLite, in particular, allows multiple tables from multiple databases to be merged thanks to CRDTs. I'm sure there's a lot to build on top of it.

    I feel like you're not really interested in full p2p but want some centralization point to manage some auth stuff, so I'd investigate couchdb/pouchdb first.
