  • GitHub repo Spring Boot

    Spring Boot

    Project mention: Getting Started with Spring Boot Actuator | dev.to | 2021-04-22

    Any production application needs to be monitored for its uptime. Let’s say you’ve developed a stock market statistics application, for example, using Spring Boot for your client. This application has to be up all the time while the stock market is open. If it’s down at a crucial time, it could mean huge losses for relevant stakeholders. In addition to being monitored for uptime, an application like this would probably even need a hotline support team that can be notified immediately if the application goes down.

  • GitHub repo Flask

    The Python micro framework for building web applications.

    Project mention: Real work examples | reddit.com/r/learnpython | 2021-04-18

    Spring Framework

    Project mention: Thoughts on DropWizard? | reddit.com/r/java | 2021-04-14

    FYI - here's the original feature request that started Spring Boot: https://github.com/spring-projects/spring-framework/issues/14521 - I quote: "Though there are many frameworks and platforms today that no longer require a container I think inspiration can be drawn most from DropWizard (http://dropwizard.codahale.com/)."

  • GitHub repo SailsJS

    Project mention: I’ve been learning for 8 months and I still can’t build a full-stack app on my own.. feel like a failure. | reddit.com/r/learnprogramming | 2021-03-12

    Express is a bare-bones, backend solution which means you have to build everything yourself. I would recommend you try something more "batteries included" like Nest.js or Sails.js. I personally really like Nest.js since it's very structured and doesn't require too much creativity on your part. Rather just follow the rules on how to use it and watch how it takes care of almost everything for you. This might help you get a better idea of the bigger picture and eventually you'll be able to build everything yourself with something like Express and Sequelize.

  • GitHub repo ASP.NET Core

    ASP.NET Core is a cross-platform .NET framework for building modern cloud-based web applications on Windows, Mac, or Linux.

    Hi all,

    We've just added a Go Echo server generator [1] to the openapi-generator project [2].

    Please give it a try by following 3 simple steps below:

    1. Download the Java JAR: https://oss.sonatype.org/content/repositories/snapshots/org/openapitools/openapi-generator-cli/5.1.1-SNAPSHOT/openapi-generator-cli-5.1.1-20210421.135227-116.jar

    2. Rename the JAR as "openapi-generator-cli.jar"

    3. Execute the following command to run the generator for the Petstore API: https://raw.githubusercontent.com/OpenAPITools/openapi-generator/master/modules/openapi-generator/src/test/resources/3_0/petstore.yaml


    $ java -jar openapi-generator-cli.jar generate -g go-echo-server -i https://raw.githubusercontent.com/OpenAPITools/openapi-generator/master/modules/openapi-generator/src/test/resources/3_0/petstore.yaml -o /var/tmp/go-echo-server/


    $ java -jar openapi-generator-cli.jar generate -g go-echo-server -i https://raw.githubusercontent.com/OpenAPITools/openapi-generator/master/modules/openapi-generator/src/test/resources/3_0/petstore.yaml -o C:\tmp\go-echo-server

    If you've any feedback or question, please let us know via https://github.com/OpenAPITools/openapi-generator/issues/new.

    Thank you Farshad Nematdoust [3] for contributing the Go Echo server generator [4].

  • GitHub repo fastify

    Fast and low overhead web framework, for Node.js

    Project mention: Fastify and PostgreSQL REST API | dev.to | 2021-04-20

    From the documentation, fastify is a fast and low overhead web framework for Node.js.

  • GitHub repo egg

    🥚 Born to build better enterprise frameworks and apps with Node.js & Koa

  • GitHub repo mux

    A powerful HTTP router and URL matcher for building Go web servers with 🦍

    Project mention: REST server with Go in 5 minutes | dev.to | 2021-04-05

    This example represents a very simple RESTful API written using Go. In a real project, we’d typically tie this up with a database so that we were returning real values. For the next step, I would suggest you should read Gorilla/Mux package. As it will remove a lot of boilerplate code and written only with the standard line.

  • GitHub repo LoopBack

    LoopBack makes it easy to build modern applications that require complex integrations.

    Project mention: A hitchhikers guide to Node JS deployments | dev.to | 2021-02-16

    Project mention: 🎂 hapi pal v3: Birthday Edition | dev.to | 2021-04-11

    We maintain an ecosystem of tooling and best practices for the hapijs web framework, often with an eye towards challenging the "web" part of "web framework" to allow applications to go beyond HTTP to horizons such as CLI tools, programmatic usage, and serverless functions. The community is a rigorous yet friendly bunch, deeply interested and knowledgable about application architecture. That's our bag!
