High performance, Simple messaging framework.

Describe your Methods -> Generate code for client and server -> Code!


As is evident from the commits, daakia is not being actively maintained.

My current job commitments leave little room for anything else. I wish to resume work on it someday, but that day does not look near.

If you'd like to work on it, open an issue :)


$ go get -u
$ go install


Create a toml file

# daakia.toml
namespace = "daakia"
	name = "TwoWayPublish"
		name = "Publish"
		in = true
		name = "Publish"
		in = true

Generate code

$ daakia --go --js -i ./daakia.toml -o ./out/path/here

Why Daakia?

Traditional messaging protocols are rigid.

Possible Solution:

Write code around/on top of the messaging software! A Sub-protocol on application messages sound familiar? (Text message/buttons/audio/system messages etc...) Cons:

  • It needs developers across different teams to implement the same set of features and use documentation to co-ordinate.
  • Forwards and backwards compatibility can be very tricky given the different speed of releases between mobile native apps, websites, and servers.

Traditional messaging servers/brokers are rigid.

Possible Solution:

Write the plugins/extensions for your feature!


  • Often, the software is in an unfamiliar language.
  • A plugin is limited to the code accessible. The part you want to tweak might just need hacking the software.
  • Your plugin might need changes every now and then depending on the release.

Bonus Problems

  • One WebSocket/TCP connection for messaging, random number of expensive http calls to services for request/response type of messages.
  • Serialize and deserialize in various formats (often with allocations) between the client and various services.

The Daakia solution.

You write your own protocol and export in your language. Daakia works on any transport protocol in any language.

A single connection handles everything from request response to streaming use cases.

Our recommended way to use Daakia is with flatbuffers.

You can get cross language 0 allocation serialization/deserialization with flatbuffers.
