  • gRPC Name Resolution & Load Balancing on Kubernetes: Everything you need to know (and probably a bit more)

    We’re hoping to make this rate at least optional via this pull request but as the time of writing this blog, it’s nothing we can do to circle our way around it.
  • Full Stack Forays with Go and gRPC
    5 projects | | 5 Jun 2023
    First, I started with gRPC’s recommended starter repository for learning gRPC, their **helloworld **example, which is a part of the official gRPC repository.
  • Tools besides Go for a newbie

    IDE: use whatever make you productive. I personally use vscode. VCS: git, as golang communities use github heavily as base for many libraries. AFAIK Linter: use staticcheck for linting as it looks like mostly used linting tool in go, supported by many also. In Vscode it will be recommended once you install go plugin. Libraries/Framework: actually the standard libraries already included many things you need, decent enough for your day-to-day development cycles(e.g. `net/http`). But here are things for extra: - Struct fields validator: validator - Http server lib: chi router , httprouter , fasthttp (for non standard http implementations, but fast) - Web Framework: echo , gin , fiber , beego , etc - Http client lib: most already covered by stdlib(net/http), so you rarely need extra lib for this, but if you really need some are: resty - CLI: cobra - Config: godotenv , viper - DB Drivers: sqlx , postgre , sqlite , mysql - nosql: redis , mongodb , elasticsearch - ORM: gorm , entgo , sqlc(codegen) - JS Transpiler: gopherjs - GUI: fyne - grpc: grpc - logging: zerolog - test: testify , gomock , dockertest - and many others you can find here

    If you read the first comment, you’ll see the API was documented as being experimental.

  • When is go not a good choice?
    7 projects | /r/golang | 3 Mar 2023
    The lack of this analysis still results in bugs and CVEs. See how many races are found and fixed in gRPC releases: (search "race"). It's a shame Google does not publish these as CVEs, because many of them qualify.
  • Rust for backend. Is it recommended?
    4 projects | /r/rust | 28 Feb 2023
    I like to point people at this release to show that not even Google -- in its own language on its own library for its own RPC protocol -- can write thread-safe Go, so what chance does anyone else have. Maybe we have to stop thinking of Go as a language for mission critical parallel computing and think of it more like a Python 4 made for low-risk prototyping. Mature libraries help for that prototyping, you know how to put them together and get something working, that something just won't be scaleable, efficient, or thread-safe.
  • goRPC or gRPC?
    5 projects | /r/golang | 12 Feb 2023
    I don't have any experience with goRPC (I'm assuming you're referring to, but just to note that that repo hasn't been updated in 7 years and has open issues that are that old, too. has 17.5k stars and is actively maintained. That doesn't say anything about their relative performance - goRPC might be faster - but you probably won't have a fun time if you run into issues.
