Sylvester

Sylvester is a Go library that imagines applications that handle streams of data as a graph. Graphs contain nodes and edges: nodes are responsible for computation and connection with outside data sources and sinks, and edges are responsible for connections between nodes.

Sylvester is:

  • An attempt to sketch a Go framework for network applications.
  • An abstraction for a certain class of applications.
  • A chance to explore Go more deeply and work on a framework.
  • Named after James Joseph Sylvester, who coined the term "graph," and was a general badass.

Statsd is the canonical application that Sylvester aims to prove a clean framework for.

Statsd as a Graph:

[External TCP] -->
inputNode -->
aggregatorNode -->
outputNode -->
[External UDP]
