Package store_sqlite (godoc.org)
Package store_sqlite implements the consumer.Store interface via an embedded SQLite instance.
Overview — Gazette master documentation (gazette.readthedocs.io)
Many organizations have adopted a streaming âspineâ for event capture and movement, but are then challenged by the realization that either they must map all of their business processes to a streaming paradigm or they must own a patchwork of pipelines and connectors that move events between the spine, data lakes, and SQL warehouses.
Consumer Concepts — Gazette master documentation (gazette.readthedocs.io)
Gazetteâs consumer framework makes it easy to build powerful streaming applications in Go. A developer begins by adapting their event-driven business logic to the consumer Application interface, most notably its ConsumeMessage callback. A complete, ready-to-run framework binary is then built by calling runconsumer.Main from a Go func main().

Package store_sqlite (godoc.org)
Package store_sqlite implements the consumer.Store interface via an embedded SQLite instance.
Overview — Gazette master documentation (gazette.readthedocs.io)
Many organizations have adopted a streaming âspineâ for event capture and movement, but are then challenged by the realization that either they must map all of their business processes to a streaming paradigm or they must own a patchwork of pipelines and connectors that move events between the spine, data lakes, and SQL warehouses.
Consumer Concepts — Gazette master documentation (gazette.readthedocs.io)
Gazetteâs consumer framework makes it easy to build powerful streaming applications in Go. A developer begins by adapting their event-driven business logic to the consumer Application interface, most notably its ConsumeMessage callback. A complete, ready-to-run framework binary is then built by calling runconsumer.Main from a Go func main().
