  • Show HN: Logical Replication with Rust
    3 projects | | 24 Nov 2022
    Postgres Logical Replication (the ability to listen to the write-ahead-log) is an extremely useful tool that opens up a lot of use cases which has been put to great effect by companies like Materialize[0] and Redhat with Debezium[1].

    Recently there was a discussion here on 'push-based output patterns'[2] where I saw it was not immediately obvious how to implement this pattern with existing tooling.

    This project seeks to demonstrate how to implement logical replication using Rust that can be easily set up and experimented with.

    > I'm not sure if differential dataflow can provide this.

    Yes, it can, but you will have to write the views yourself, in Rust.

    Materialize ( exists, though, and compiles SQL to differential-dataflow programs, in order to provide exactly what you're asking for.

  • Streaming data in Postgres to 1M clients with GraphQL

    Unfortunately, Materialize has a pretty restrictive license.

    I'm generally pretty happy to pay for open source software, but licensing like this is just too risky. I need to be able to experiment with something at scale, in production, before I start paying someone.

    As mentioned in the blog post, clusters allow horizontal scalability and daisy chaining, so you can allocate more memory for your views even if you run up against the limits of how much memory you can fit on a single machine. We've got plans in the works to support out-of-core execution, too.

    > Also they do not integrate at all with custom data types in Postgres IME. E.g. an enumeration in your table will mean materialize can’t read the table as a source. Lame.

    We're aware of this and are working on a fix. There are two tracking issues, if you'd like to follow along:

  • Headless BI with streaming data
    2 projects | | 22 Sep 2022
    In the last few years, streaming SQL technologies such as ksqlDB, Materialize, and Apache Flink have significantly progressed. These technologies enable us to process streaming data and run analysis with SQL—without needing to learn a new language or build specific language-unique integrations.
  • What are data apps?

    Naturally, a data application starts with the data—and the basis of the modern data stack is the cloud data warehouse. This can be a general purpose data warehouse like Snowflake or a real-time tool like Firebolt, ClickHouse, or Materialize.

    I think these are great suggestions.

    It seems like you're suggesting that someone could design a functional-style programming language that compiles to SQL.

    2 & 3 are my biggest pain points. I can't just extract functions like I can with a regular programming language. Instead, SQL queries get increasingly complex with no great tools to manage that.

    For 3, products like look interesting for being able to create derived materialized views that can efficiently be kept up to date.

  • Ask HN: Anyone using Rust for server side application development?
    8 projects | | 20 Aug 2022
    Not me, but Materialize has built a streaming query materialization solution completely in Rust AFAIK, and has raised around $100MM so far according to crunchbase.

    Super cool product.
