    Gin is a HTTP web framework written in Go (Golang). It features a Martini-like API with much better performance -- up to 40 times faster. If you need smashing performance, get yourself some Gin.

    For APIs you're looking at Gin for Go or Flask for python

  • serde

    Serialization framework for Rust

    For Rust you need Serde for JSON (de)serialization etc etc

  • Scout APM

    Less time debugging, more time building. Scout APM allows you to find and fix performance issues with no hassle. Now with error monitoring and external services monitoring, Scout is a developer's best friend when it comes to application development.
