Attempt to replace hedge’s member tracking with hashicorp/memberlist


I recently came across the hashicorp/memberlist library while browsing GitHub and I thought it would be a good replacement for hedge’s internal member tracking logic. It seems to be widely used (thus more battle-tested) as well. I was quite excited as I always thought that hedge’s equivalent logic is too barebones and untested outside of our use cases. It works just fine for its current intended purpose but I’ve been hesitating to build on top of it until I can really say that it’s stable enough.

hedge - A simple distributed computing library


This library has been in our production for about a year already and is one of the critical components in our backend. We mainly use it for app-level orchestration between pods. It’s called hedge and you can find the code here. Maybe it will be useful to anybody out there.
