Steeltoe - dotnet core package a day - 14


This post is part of a series, dotnet core package a day, where for 15 days I will be posting an overview of an awesome OSS dotnet package that already has support for dotnet core. In this post we will cover Steeltoe.

Painless microservice patterns for .NET For all their benefits, microservice architectures expose many distributed computing problems that traditional monoliths avoided. Steeltoe brings the power of resilient, scalable microservices to .NET developers, without all the headache.

I guess I'm cheating a little bit here as Steeltoe isn't a single package, for instance, the Steeltoe.Discovery.Eureka.Client package provides a dotnet client for Netflix Eureka and the Steeltoe.CloudFoundry.Connector.Redis package provides a connector for Cloud Foundary redis. There are other connector packages available that support MySQL, PostgreSQL, Rabbit, and OAuth. All of the packages are very new, the v1.0.0 release was only published on the 31st March 2017. This is reflected in the download stats, with downloads in the low thousands for most packages. The v1.0.0 release supports dotnet core from the get go.
