  • Show HN: SpacetimeDB – The database that replaces your server
    4 projects | news.ycombinator.com | 16 Aug 2023
    Really cool project, thanks for making it available for others to look at. It really reminds me of https://pocketbase.io/ which has sorta the same idea and can be extended with go/js. How does the database work under the hood? Is it also based on sqlite? Are rust modules built with a special runtime in mind like tokio or?
  • Pros and cons of off-the-shelf solutions for creating a control panel
    6 projects | /r/reactjs | 13 Jul 2023
    - We want a solution that creates CRUD (create, read, update, delete) quickly and requires minimal effort. - We want to be able to create some sort of complex interface if the task requires it. - We make cool, beautiful projects, so we want a visually pleasing solution. - We want the solution to be independent of the language on the back-end, because, for example, we started with PHP, Laravel, but over time node.js, Go appeared in the stack. In short, we want fast, beautiful and custom. We've had time to poke at various off-the-shelf solutions that we've been advised. They're good, but: - they are created specifically for some frameworks / languages like laravel, node.js - they can only generate CRUDs with a rigidly defined structure, where you can't implement or customize anything of your own. - they can't be styled Here's what we've been looking at Control Panels for Laravel: https://demo.backpackforlaravel.com/admin/dashboard Not a very pretty solution in our opinion. And the promo page has nice screenshots, not the demo "well such". https://orchid.software/en/ Not particularly functional, but neatly done https://nova.laravel.com They have a beautiful, but rigidly set strutkrua, you can not create castmon interfaces, stylize them. Just do CRUD and that's it. And it's paid https://filamentphp.com/ Analog to Nova, with essentially the same problems. For node.js: https://adminjs.co Nice promo, and the demo is way behind As standalone dashboards: https://strapi.io/ Very cool, but for other purposes. It's more of an entity builder with an interface and API https://pocketbase.io/ Similarly, it's an entity builder with an interface and API https://directus.io/ This is a backend builder. https://filamentphp.com/It is purely for php, you can't customize styles, you can't create your own interfaces. It is possible to create only tables and forms by template, and we remember that we want flexibility, independence from the language and the ability to create their own interfaces and customize them https://flatlogic.com This is also more of a backend builder. Direct competitors: https://github.com/refinedev/refine https://marmelab.com/react-admin/is probably the best solution that is currently on the market, they have been developing for a long time, they are our favorite. To the disadvantages we considered the following points: quite an old project, and somewhere the technology is already outdated, unsympathetic interface, old UI libraries. Huge documentation, it’s simply to create CRUD but hard to work without immersion. After all this there is only one conclusion: you need to do it yourself....

  • REST API structure that can scale, your recommendations?
    2 projects | /r/golang | 7 Jun 2023
    Every api (sub-router) has a reference to the base instance, the application. The application holds database connections. And if say the admin api has to access the database it would access it by api.app.Database. I think it's easy to understand but at the same time it doesn't really make sense, because of the way you access the database. You go from your api up to the base and then down to the api. It would make more sense to start at the app, and then go down to the database.Pocketbase: https://github.com/pocketbase/pocketbaseHere's is an example how a sub-router to the admin service has a reference to the app: https://github.com/pocketbase/pocketbase/blob/e4a90f6605d8a8ab24544ac0a89639532b97afc2/apis/admin.go#L33
