    Project mention: Best OS for an NAS + Jellyfin use | | 2023-06-02

    Set up another virtual machine dedicated to Jellyfin (and a reverse proxy if you need access from outside of your network). I use an Ubuntu installation which runs Jellyfin and Caddy.

  • traefik

    The Cloud Native Application Proxy

    Project mention: Replicating and Load Balancing Go Applications in Docker Containers with Consul and Fabio | | 2023-05-31

    Glad it was helpful! I had never heard of it before either, but it looks like it's been around since 2015. I've leaned on Traefik a lot in the past, but Fabio seemed to be a lot simpler. Simplicity was the rule of thumb for this exercise, So I didn't dig too hard for performance comparisons...

  • minio

    High Performance Object Storage for AI

    Project mention: What's the best AWS S3 protocol alternative? | | 2023-05-31

    You say protocol alternative, but assuming you're more concerned with AWS as the host than S3 as the protocol you might try

    If you do feel an aversion to the protocol then the rclone backend list would be a good starting point

  • Vault

    A tool for secrets management, encryption as a service, and privileged access management

    Project mention: What is your fallback plan in case of layoff ? | | 2023-06-01
  • consul

    Consul is a distributed, highly available, and data center aware solution to connect and configure applications across dynamic, distributed infrastructure.

    Project mention: Replicating and Load Balancing Go Applications in Docker Containers with Consul and Fabio | | 2023-05-31

    After some research and testing, I landed on using Consul and Fabio as the demo infrastructure. Of course, there is a myriad of other options to accomplish this task, but because of the low configuration and ease of use, I was impressed with this pairing. Both projects are mature and well-supported, and very flexible--just because you can run them with low configuration, doesn't mean you have to. I wanted to keep this demo constrained, but the exercise did get me excited about exploring things further: circuit breakers, traffic splitting, and more complex service meshes.

  • nsq

    A realtime distributed messaging platform

    Project mention: MQTT vs. Kafka: An IoT Advocate's Perspective | | 2023-03-14

    Interesting. What are you thoughts on NSQ?

    Was looking at it earlier today, but haven't ever tried it out.

  • InfluxDB

  • Ponzu

    Headless CMS with automatic JSON API. Featuring auto-HTTPS from Let's Encrypt, HTTP/2 Server Push, and flexible server framework written in Go.

  • easegress

    A Cloud Native traffic orchestration system

    Project mention: Thoughts on new tool - easegress - 5k stars in 8 months | | 2023-03-03

    Since there is no discussion on reddit, wanted to get people's thoughts on a relatively new project easegress which looks to have gained a lot of stars. Seems interesting and something that can't easily be compared to any other individual tool since it combines a lot of features in one.

  • Jocko

    Kafka implemented in Golang with built-in coordination (No ZK dep, single binary install, Cloud Native)

    Project mention: Ask HN: What interesting problems are you working on? ( 2022 Edition) | | 2022-09-16

    Still early stages but building on top of this. -

  • devd

    A local webserver for developers

    Project mention: Live preview of vanilla CSS as I change it? | | 2023-04-19

    There are plenty of solutions to that specific problem. Nowadays, I only work on Nuxt/Next/Astro projects that come with hot reload out of the box so I don't have a need for it anymore, but I have used a lot in the past, with much success.

    A no-install solution would be to use the "workspace" feature of Chrome's Dev Tools:

    1. Open your .html file in Chrome.

    2. Open the Dev Tools.

    3. In the "Sources" tab, activate the "Filesystem" sub-tab.

    4. Click on "+ Add folder to workspace" and choose the directory containing your .html and .css files.

    5. Edit the .css file with autocompletion and live preview.

    6. Save your work so that it is synchronized with your filesystem.
