A realtime distributed messaging platform
High-Performance server for NATS, the cloud native messaging system.Latest mention: Tiny message broker written in Go - nothing serious. Born out of COVID-boredom. Would love your suggestions. | reddit.com/r/golang | 2020-12-23
NATS has it's own custom text based protocol, and the client ecosystem is not as mature as others', like MQTT. In fact, I developed the NATS Dart client initially to be used from Flutter apps, but now can be used on Dart servers as well. Ivan from NATS is currently working on native MQTT v3.5 support (releasing sometime soon) and v5 support landing in Q1 2021 (Source: NATS Roadmap). I see here that they're building the Go implementation from scratch, which is interesting. They also seem to be converting every MQTT topic to a NATS topic for backward compatibility (obviously, duh) - I'm not sure if this brings any challenges down the line.

I have been using https://github.com/hibiken/asynq with great success. I looked at Faktory, but didn't want to deal with a separate executable + persisting its data, Asynq is the usual "library talking to Redis" implementation.
