Guest Post: Synchronize web apps in real time with NATS+Resgate

By: Samuel Jirénius - Date: September 7, 2018

REST APIs are nice. Simple. Stateless. Scalable. But to keep client data updated in real time, things get more complicated. Streaming events is easy, but you start having to deal with questions like: Which resources do I need events for? How do I manage sending each client only the events they need? Can I prevent subscription to some events for unauthorized clients? Who keeps state of these event subscriptions? Read More…


New Developer Documentation Series

By: Alberto Ricart - Date: September 6, 2018

How good is software if you don’t know how to use it? Documentation is needed no matter how simple to follow and easy to use you purport your code to be, and that is especially true with open source software. The NATS Team has worked hard to improve and reorganize our documentation along with newly created code examples across six different client languages that illustrate how to use supported NATS clients.

Typescript NATS

By: Alberto Ricart - Date: August 9, 2018

Ode to Node-NATS: Ts-NATS - the TypeScript native NATS for Node. On December 23, 2011, Derek Collison gave us node-nats (Node.js v0.06). Node-nats is the second oldest client for NATS; only ruby-nats is older (10/30/2010). Node-nats is arguably one of the most popular NATS clients sporting over 64K monthly downloads. Over the last year or so, we have been getting requests here and there to promisify the library. While on the surface these seem like syntactic sugar, changing node-nats to offer Promise and Async support requires a bit more. Read More…

Guest Post: Fission - Serverless Functions and Workflows with Kubernetes and NATS

By: Soam Vasani - Date: October 20, 2017

Fission is a framework for “Serverless” Functions or Functions-as-a-Service on Kubernetes. Fission allows you to take a function and easily turn it into a usable service on Kubernetes, without much of a learning curve. Fission supports a variety of source languages and triggers, which are bindings of events to functions. Fission integrates with the NATS Streaming message queue. Users can map a queue topic to a function using a Fission Message Queue Trigger. Read More…


Guest Post: NATS on Autopilot - How the team at Joyent simplify complex applications

By: Wyatt Preul - Date: September 29, 2017

Here on the product team at Joyent, we enjoy making sophisticated applications easy to deploy and manage. For us, that means containerizing components, automating them with ContainerPilot and the Autopilot Pattern. This typically means that we are containerizing the components that comprise our solutions with Docker and are using a service discovery catalog like Consul. Up until this year, we didn’t have a working solution to solve the message queuing problem. Read More…
