gokit Circle CI Drone.io Travis CI GoDoc

Gokit is a distributed programming toolkit for microservices in the modern enterprise.

Motivation

See the motivating blog post and the video of the talk.

Goals

  • Operate in a heterogeneous SOA — expect to interact with mostly non-Go-kit services
  • RPC as the primary messaging pattern
  • Pluggable serialization and transport — not just JSON over HTTP
  • Zipkin-compatible request tracing

Non-goals

  • Supporting messaging patterns other than RPC (in the initial release) — pub/sub, CQRS, etc.
  • Having opinions on deployment, orchestration, process supervision, etc.
  • Having opinions on configuration passing — flags, env vars, files, etc.

Component status

Contributing

Please see CONTRIBUTING.md. Thank you, contributors!

Dependency management

Users who import Go kit into their package main are responsible to organize and maintain all of their dependencies to ensure code compatibility and build reproducibility. Gokit makes no direct use of dependency management tools like Godep.

We will use a variety of continuous integration providers to find and fix compatibility problems as soon as they occur.

API stability policy

The Go kit project depends on code maintained by others. This includes the Go standard library and sub-repositories and other external libraries. The Go language and standard library provide stability guarantees, but the other external libraries typically do not. The API Stability RFC proposes a standard policy for package authors to advertise API stability. The Go kit project prefers to depend on code that abides the API stability policy.
