M3O is an open source public cloud platform.
We are building an AWS alternative for the next generation of developers.
If you’re following our Building a Blog with Micro series you’ll already know a lot about building a blog as Micro services. In this post we’re going to cover a little on actually writing your blog via the terminal. We’ve already built out the services needed so you should be able to access them in micro/services/blog.more »
This series will cover how to build a blog service using Micro. We’ll decompose a monolithic Blog into multiple services. In part one we’ll focus on building a Post service. It will be good way to learn how to build nontrivial applications with the store and the model.more »
This is the official announcement for the release of Micro 3.0 better known as M3O - a platform for cloud native development. Our 3.0 release is a major refactor and consolidation of the existing tooling into something that addresses the entire workflow of build, run, manage and consume all from the developers perspective.more »
Today we’re announcing M3O - a cloud native platform for Micro services development. A vastly simpler method of building distributed systems in the Cloud and beyond without having to manage the infrastructure. M3O (pronounced “em-3-oh” and derived from the word
M[icr]o) is the culmination of many years of experience doing distributed systems development and today we want to shed more light on what we’re working on.
In this post we will have a look at how to run and manage microservices locally with
micro server and the Micro CLI in general.
The Micro CLI consists of both the server command and other client commands that enable us to interact with the server.
micro server can run microservices in different environments - binaries locally for speed and simplicity, or containers in a more production ready environment.
go-micro, a Go microservices framework was announced. Today we introduce the
micro server, which builds on top of
go-micro, and enables you to run and manage microservices with ease, both locally and across different environments.
We’re happy to announce the release of Micro and Go Micro v2! This release is a major milestone for us as we adopt gRPC and embedded NATS by default.
Over the past 6 months we at Micro have been hard at work developing a global service network to build, share and collaborate on microservices.more »
Micro is an open source project focused on simplifying microservices development. It started life as go-micro - a Go framework for microservice development. But even before then, go-micro, was a hacked up tiny library created to enable the development of a “kubernetes as a service” project way back when in 2014 (see the first commit here).more »
For over 4 years Consul has served us well as one of the default service discovery systems in Micro. It was in fact in the very beginning the default mechanism used for the registry and the only underlying dependency required to get started.
Something I often wonder is how we’re stuck in this pre-historic phase of software development. Where technology has largely advanced from a consumer experience standpoint, but as developers it feels like we’re moving at a snails pace.
Micro started it’s journey as go-micro - a microservices framework - focused on providing the core requirements for microservice development. It creates a simpler experience for building microservices by abstracting away the complexity of distributed systems.
Over the past 4 years we’ve focused on creating the simplest experience for microservice development. To do this we built a strongly opinionated open source framework called Go Micro and Micro, a microservice toolkit built to explore, query and interact with those services via an API Gateway, CLI, Slack and Web Dashboard.
