Is there any new open source project that needs contributions or PRs? If there's none, I wanna propose one.
It's a service registry/discovery agent, kinda like Spring Cloud's consul. Each service would be registered as a name and have a node apportioned to it and a configuration object would be associated with each service. This object's keys would be used to configure the registering service. This would aid in the development of microservices.
Each service could be referenced using it's node name or hash. Only one service per node.
For the platform's UI, I was thinking of using Angular (React is fine as well).
We'd be sticking to a microservice architecture for the APIs. The Auth service (User's service) would be built using NodeJs and the Node service would be built using Spring Boot. We'd also be leveraging on Websockets for pings to the registered services to check for health status.
We'd also create a NodeJs library for interacting with the API (We'd talk about the name in a workspace) and another for creating custom endpoints to ping.
