    Project mention: (Ab)using a server library as a GUI - bad idea or only sort of bad idea? | | 2022-12-28

    In Tauri (or Axum) the app compiles to a single binary. rspc is the key to this because it allows for multiple transports with the frontend. It supports both Tauri IPC, HTTP or websockets. Our core crate (at ./core) exports an rspc router that is transport agnostic then within the apps (at ./apps/desktop or ./app/server) we expose it with a transport. We use Tauri IPC for desktop and websockets for Axum because we use subscriptions. Then in the wrapper React project (at ./apps/desktop/src/App.tsx) we create the rspc client with the Tauri link, mount its React context and then mount the app package (). You can give the codebase a look if you want cause it’s all open source

  • talent-plan

    Project mention: How does serde_json work? | | 2022-11-18

    You should try this lab by PingCAP (write a serde implementation for redis serialization protocol) ; you can find answers/seek help in github if you really don't know to figure out it.

  • InfluxDB

    Build time-series-based applications quickly and at scale.. InfluxDB is the Time Series Platform where developers build real-time applications for analytics, IoT and cloud-native services. Easy to start, it is available in the cloud or on-premises.

  • materialize

    Materialize is a fast, distributed SQL database built on streaming internals. (by MaterializeInc)

    Project mention: What makes a time series oriented database (ex: QuestDB) more efficient for OLAP on time series than an OLAP "only" oriented database (ex: DuckDB) technically? | | 2023-01-23

    AFAIK there is a lot of overlap between OLAP databases and time series databases. Timescale]( gains a lot of its performance via the "Hypertable" abstraction which is fairly similar to something like Parquet partitioning/bucketing. In terms of performance I don't know if there is a huge gap either for non optimized use cases. The [Clickhouse] team for example feels confident that Clickhouse can be used as a time series database. There are also [independent benchmarks showing the performance is comparable[( I think where time series specific databases excel are in their tooling for time series specific queries. Things like continuous aggregates or efficient gap filling. But non time series databases are catching up on that front. Clickhouse has live views and Materialize is also playing in that space

  • reth

    Project mention: [AMA] We are EF Research (Pt. 9: 11 January, 2023) | | 2023-01-10

    It wasn't explicitly mentioned as the reason, but I'm fairly certain it's associated with Paradigm's new client, Reth. This controversy raised some concerns for me. What is the team's opinion on the ability for large companies to "buy a seat at the table" by either building their own client or purchasing an existing client (for example, Offchain Labs recent acquisition of Prysmatic Labs)? Is this good to bad for the ecosystem? If bad, is there anything we can do to disincentivize this?

  • rust-crdt

  • little-raft

    The lightest distributed consensus library. Run your own replicated state machine! ❤️

    Project mention: Show /r/rust: Viewstamped Replication for Rust | | 2022-10-30

    My perspective is that VSR seems much more easier to grasp than Raft based on reading and contributing to Ilya Andreev's Little Raft. The selection of primary replica ("leader election" in Raft), for example, is dead-simple in VSR (you maintain a deterministic order of nodes and round-robin). Also, VSR seems to do a better job at decoupling the different scenarios at protocol level (backup fell behind, crashed, etc.) whereas in Raft the AppendEntries is a big hammer that does everything. I have very little experience on Paxos so can't really compare it to VSR.

  • anoma
