  • GitHub repo Zappa

    Serverless Python

    Project mention: Hosting Solutions (free) | reddit.com/r/django | 2021-02-06

    Depending on what you need zappa (https://github.com/Miserlou/Zappa) allows you to run Django in aws lambda which is very cheap (read practically free).

  • GitHub repo up

    Deploy infinitely scalable serverless apps, apis, and sites in seconds to AWS.

    Project mention: Ask HN: Does anyone else find the AWS Lambda developer experience poor? | news.ycombinator.com | 2021-04-18

    I can also recommend serverless.com framework for local development and running lambdas offline.

    AWS provides a docker image for emulating DynamoDB which works great for local dev and will commonly be paired with lambdas.

    Another option I have used recently for implementing node web services is https://github.com/apex/up which also has a nice local dev experience.

  • GitHub repo Tyk

    Tyk Open Source API Gateway written in Go, supporting REST, GraphQL, TCP and gRPC protocols

    Project mention: Microservices Design - API Gateway Pattern | dev.to | 2021-01-01

    Amazon API Gateway AWS provides fully managed service for creating, publishing, maintaining, monitoring, and securing REST, HTTP, and WebSocket where developers can create APIs that access AWS or other web services, as well as data stored in the AWS Cloud. Kong API Gateway Kong Gateway is an open-source, lightweight API gateway optimized for microservices, delivering unparalleled latency performance and scalability. If you just want the basics, this option will work for you. It is scalable easily horizontally by adding more nodes. It supports large and variable workloads with very low latency. Other API Gateways Apigee API Gateway MuleSoft Tyk.io Akana SwaggerHub Azure API Gateway Express API Gateway Karken D Choosing the right API gateway Some of the common baseline for evaluation criteria include simplicity, open-source vs propriety, scalability & flexibility, security, features, community, administrative (support, monitoring & deployment), environment provisioning(installation, configuration, hosting offering), pricing, and documentation. API Composition / Aggregation Some API requests in API Gateway map directly to single service API which can be served by routing request to the corresponding microservice. However, in the case of complex API operations that requires results from several microservices can be served by API composition/aggregation (a scatter-gather mechanism). In case of dependency of one another service where synchronous communication is required, the chained composition pattern has to be followed. The composition layer has to support a significant portion of ESB/integration capabilities such as transformations, orchestration, resiliency, and stability patterns. A root container is deployed with the special distributor and aggregator functionalities (or microservices). The distributor is responsible for breaking down into granular tasks and distributing those tasks to microservice instances. The aggregator is responsible for aggregating the results derived by business workflow from composed microservice. API Gateway and Aggregation API gateway with added features results in overambitious gateways that encourage designs that continue to be difficult to test and deploy. It is highly recommended to avoid aggregation and data transformation in the API Gateway. Domain smarts are better suited to be done in application code that follows the defined software development practices. Netflix API Gateway, Zuul 2 removed a lot of the business logic from Gateway that they had in Zuul to origin systems. For more details, refer here. Service Mesh and API Gateway Service mesh in microservices is a configurable network infrastructure layer that handles interprocess communication. This is akin to what is often termed as sidecar proxy or sidecar gateway. It provides a lot of functionalities such as:

    Project mention: Why would anyone want a REST API for electronic invoices? | reddit.com/r/invoicing | 2021-03-20

    The paradox situation is that there is an overwhelming amount of work, not because everything is so hard, but because everything is so easy. There is still a lot to learn, and to do, our Dockerfile is a mess. API management wise I only just had a glance at WSO2, which looks really promising).
